Exclusive release alert!!

Springtime is competition season for us here at Black and White, and in our preparation for various coffee events throughout March and April, we often roast small batches of coffee that aren't large enough to release to the public. However, those small batches are the perfect size to turn into instant, so we are dropping two coffees for you to experience that you won't get to try any other way!

We roasted this lovely coffee by Colombian producer Andres Cardona for a roasting competition in Greenville, SC. The coffee is a perfect expression of our red label profile, which highlights naturally-processed coffees, especially those from Central and South America! It features a bouquet of fresh fruit flavors, like red cherry and juicy plum. The instant process ups the sweetness of this coffee, intensifying its creamy, chocolatey finish.

Brewing Suggestions For Our Coffee At Home

“How should I brew coffee from Black & White?” We get this question a lot, and we love chatting about how folks can get the most out of the coffees we roast. But, since everybody’s gear setup, water sources, and preferences are different, we haven’t found a great way to post definitive brew guides for specific coffees. 

We do have some tips that have seemed to help most folks, though…

First, our coffees do great with a bit of rest. In our cafes, we’ve discovered that things really start to shine at or after 14 days post roast. You certainly don’t have to wait so long, but you’ll notice the cup’s clarity increase over time. Clean, washed coffees tend to need less rest than funkier coffees that feature higher-impact fermentation methods (like naturals, anaerobic naturals, or co-ferments). 

For espresso, we start all of our coffees at a 1:2 ratio with a brew time around 24 seconds. This recipe usually works great for year round coffees and single origin coffees with lower impact fermentations. Funky coffees often get the longer ratio treatment (sometimes up to 1:3), but your preferences may lead you elsewhere. We celebrate that!

For filter style coffee, we tend to like hotter (at or above 205F), faster (at or under 3 minutes) brews. Our roasting philosophy focuses on maximizing sweetness and solubility in all our coffees, so you’re probably safe applying your favorite recipe. 

If you have more questions, feel free to shoot us a DM or email. We’re always here for curiosity. Oh! And don’t forget–if it tastes good, it is good.
