Outstanding! 87 Cupping Score

Much like a wine Sommelier, Coffee Q Graders can spot defects, identify origins, measure flavor, and smell elements of coffee like acidity, sweetness, bitterness, and sourness. This knowledge helps them score coffees on the Specialty Coffee Association’s 100-point quality scale. Any coffee above 80 points is considered a specialty coffee. (Starbucks coffees usually rate in the low 80s.) Chimney Hill’s Special Roast Tanzanian berries are rated an outstanding 87!

Mick & Courtney

Once upon a time in College Station, TX the coffee tasted bland and stale and the day lacked true meaning. We set forth a search both hill and dale for berries of exalted being. We micro-managed each micro-roast and punctuated our small successes with micro-boasts. And at long last the aromas did invigorate and the flavors they did explode. On that day, our morning routine had meaning and Chimney Hill Coffee was born.

Micro-Batch Roasting

Freshly roasted coffee. When buying micro-batch, you can be sure that the coffee you’re buying is fresh and roasted recently. Popular brands typically roast their coffee months before it even makes its way into your cup.

Tailored for the berry. By roasting for micro-batches, it is much easier to roast individual berries in a way that will bring out the most flavor and aroma. Not all coffee beans are created equal, so each roast must be done in a form tailored for each variety of coffee beans.

All it takes is one sip of Chimney Hill Coffee micro-batch roasted coffee and you’ll never turn back.
