My goal with this business is to elevate your day with our coffee.

Calibration Coffee Lab is a passion project for me and the rebirth of my career. This business allows me to participate in a coffee bean's journey from the coffee plant at origin all the way to your cup and I want to share this passion with as many people as possible.

Many things have to go right in a bean's journey for you to have an amazing cup of coffee. My goal is to respect & honor the work that farmers, workers, and importers do to get that bean here by roasting it in a way that highlights all the potential that the bean has to offer.

I personally sample and roast many offerings, carefully selecting beans that offer the best flavor potential when brewed. 

I analyze all of my roasts and put in the effort required to create the best experience for my customers, and I will try and guide buyers to purchase and brew the types of coffee that they like. I've spent many sleepless nights thinking about how I can get more sweetness and chocolate out of a Central American bean or more tropical fruit out of an African coffee. 

My goal is to roast coffees that can stand on their own to be enjoyed by the home coffee enthusiast. Let me obsess over the sourcing and roasting so that you can obsess over the brew.

What's your roasting turnaround time?

I typically roast at the beginning of the week and then promptly ship. I ship as fresh as possible. If I have coffee already roasted, then I take into account the coffee type and how fast it ages and also how far the shipment is to ensure that your coffee drinking experience is perfect. I store coffee in airtight bins before shipping which slows the aging process. If you have any issues, just reach out to me alex@calibrationcoffeelab.com and I will take care of you.

As the business grows, I hope to be able to roast multiple times a week to provide more desirable order to receipt timing, but in the early stages this will allow me to fill out the roaster and produce less waste. After a shipping label is created, you will receive an email with a tracking number.

How long will my coffee stay fresh?

Wholebean coffee stored in airtight bags or vessels can hold flavor for about a month. It also depends on the specific coffee.

For example, some coffees when stored well may maintain fruit characteristics for 30 days where some more nuanced flavors may drop-off in another coffee in 2-3 weeks. 

Ground coffee is best used 1-2 weeks after roasting.

But if it still tastes good, drink it!
