We pride ourselves in sourcing the best coffees in the world. But here at the Columbia Dunn Brothers, we know that the quality of the bean counts for nothing if it’s not roasted correctly. That’s because beans develop their aroma and flavor during the roasting process. The heat spurs complex chemical reactions in which proteins are broken down and aromatic oils are created. These water-soluble oils carry the flavors that you taste. Our certified master roasters tailor the roasting process to each individual bean variety. Couple that with the precise control that small batch roasting provides, and we are able to bring out the unique flavor qualities of every coffee we roast, giving you the most flavorful cup of coffee you can buy.
Why Fresh Roasted Coffee Tastes Better
Fresher coffee tastes better! Roasting not only activates flavor – it also activates a clock. From the moment the oils are released, oxygen starts to break them down, leaching the beans of their flavor. That’s why here in Columbia, and at every Dunn Brothers coffee shop nationwide, we hand-scoop and package our coffees in the store and sell them within a week of being roasted; because the fresher the beans are, the more flavorful the final cup will be. It’s the coffee world’s most stringent freshness standard and we are very proud to say you can only find it at Dunn Brothers – The Home of Good Taste.
