We’re always pleased to find some new selected artisan and gourmet bean roasters here in the nut hut, and just this week we’ve added two brand new ones — Pear’s and Café Excellence, which combined with another newcomer, Cameron’s, makes a trifecta of unique roasters. Here’ we’ll give you an overview from a shopper-connoisseur perspective. There’s quite a range in the final cost per pound, as you’ll learn below, depending on packaging quantities, and special processes. When you see “Organic” this usually means little or no pesticides were used, and the coffee was grown in the shade. Compare all 12 of our Select Gourmet Coffee Roasters, here.
