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.

Freshly roasted. 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.
