Sourcing our Beans
Coffee cherries are produced in the rich tannin banks of the Pomeroon River, Guyana. The original variety, Typica, introduced by the Dutch almost three centuries earlier has changed, not by man hands, but by nature. As would be expected, any variety would mutate to adapt to its surroundings over such a lengthy period. And Pomeroon Typica has gotten better.
To extract the best from coffee beans requires understanding roast times and temperatures, density and moisture, pressure and airflow. Indeed, the Roast is the most important function in the conversion of coffee cherries to a pleasurable and enjoyable brew. For this, APFI uses some of the most advanced equipment of its kind in the world.
