I started roasting coffee as hobby in my apartment kitchen. I was getting tired of Starbucks always messing up my coffee order and giving me burnt tasting coffee, so I started to roast small batches of Ethiopian green coffee beans that my friend had given me from his family farm. I burnt the first few batches but after a while, I started to perfect the roast level. I was amazed by what I had just roasted. The taste, aroma, and flavor of the bean was amazing! I literally felt like my mouth was in heaven.
Simply put, a single-origin coffee means that it comes from a single producer, farm, crop, or region in one country. Single-Origin coffees are generally named after the farm, community, or region that is producing the coffee. Bean origin matters because factors such as the soil type, climate, production and processing methods shape the final flavor, like the aroma and aftertaste.
