Where quality control means something!
A lot of coffee companies talk about quality control - but it's just a meaningless phrase if your coffee beans are cheap and charred to start with. At Java Republic, we invest a great deal of time and money in handroasting some of the world's finest coffee varietals. That's why we work to maintain our standards right up to the point where you serve our coffee to your customers.
Our quest for quality starts with the best possible beans, and then continues with our unique handroasting process. But we don't stop there. Unlike some others, our quality control doesn't end with the roast: to ensure that your customers get the best possible coffee, we pursue a better-than-best practice policy right up the point where your customers enjoy our coffee.
The root of this process is a simple ritual called ‘cupping’: when our master roasters have finished handcrafting each of the individual roasts needed for our signature blends, we taste each bean varietals separately. This ensures that the individual flavour profiles are at their optimum. Only then are the individual roasts blended to make one of our award-winning coffees.
The coffee is then packed, dated and distributed to you in a matter of days. The date-roasting information on each pack is our guarantee of freshness – and a useful tool for you to ensure that you use our coffee in date order. This maintains the freshness of each cup you serve, and maintains that unique Java Republic taste.
If you want to experience the ritual of 'cupping' for yourself, come out to our roastery. We're open about what goes into our coffee, and we would love you to see just how much care we take when assessing the quality of our handroasts. Don't worry about drinking all that coffee - its like wine tasting: all spit, no swallow!
