Tubbs Coffee Roasters is a specialty coffee roaster based in Hayden, Idaho. They’re a small, family-owned coffee roaster and retailer with a strong focus on ethically sourced coffees and conscious packaging.
While their coffee is stupendous, the thing that really caught my eye was this Tubbs Coffee Roasters post on Facebook: “Roasting coffee is as seasonal as the cherry that is harvested. We collect and process pre-roast data such as country and farm or co-op of origin, lot number, elevation, process method, ambient shop temp and humidity, plus green bean density, moisture content and temp before the hopper is loaded and roast is charged.”
At Tubbs, they work to create a balanced cup that preserves the natural sweetness and acidity of the coffee bean through varied drying phases. When everything lines up just right, they say, the result is “symphonic, blissful, and quite sublime.”
The Double Eagle dark roast blend is just that. Sipping it reminds me of sipping coffee while watching bald eagles at Higgens Point. It tastes rich and dark and strong.
However, if it’s too strong, you might try the Teacher’s Pet blend. Even if you weren’t the teacher’s favorite, you can certainly appreciate a coffee blend that gets it right every cup.
