Benetti’s Coffee Experience is a locally-owned and independent coffee roaster committed to providing our neighbors and guests with a fresh experience. We use long-standing traditions, and a few newer tricks, to embrace customers with each cup.
At Benetti’s, we feel it is important to share our roasting philosophy and approach. In essence, we aim to please the coffee drinker who wants to experience the full complexity of a coffee. We believe that there is a balance that is lost when a coffee is roasted in a way that emphasizes a single characteristic or causes you to taste the roasting process more than the coffee. We believe that balance does not have to equal boring. We celebrate the pure experience of single origin coffees, but also value a well-crafted blend.
At Benetti’s, we have the flexibility of two roasting facilities.
In our cafe, we have an Ambex 2K roaster, which used to handle all of our roasting. We now use this as our sample roaster, and it is a key player in our sourcing program. This also provides for excellent research, development and quality control that takes place less than 20 steps away from where the coffee is served to our customers.
We also have a separate roasting facility that houses an US Roasters 18K, with a much larger average batch size. We use this roaster for our production coffees.
Our three-member team provide balance and accountability to our roasting program. Nick takes charge of sourcing and designing our coffee lineup, as well as helping wholesale accounts build their menu options. Ben handles sample roasting and oversees evaluation and quality control procedures. And, roast master Kiersten keeps copious records of each roast and manages our green and roasted inventory in a way that makes the freshest coffee available to our customers.
All of our baristas love and drink coffee. They are fully involved in blend maintenance, especially when it comes to our espresso.
Each of our coffee bags feature a roasted-on date so that you are in the know. We also use packing that helps you avoid staling it quicker.
