Frequently Asked Questions
Isn't all coffee the same?
There are actually more than 60 different types of coffee beans; although, there are two (Robusta and Arabica) that are mainly consumed.
All of our coffee is directly purchased from the farmers and locally roasted at Three Arrows, St. Croix Falls, WI
All coffees do not taste the same, that is where the magic comes in. From the grind to the water. The grind of your beans can make a huge difference in the flavor of your coffee. Coffee grounds need to be soluble enough to impart good flavor but insoluble enough to stay out of your filter system. If your coffee tastes weak or sour, your drink may be under-extracted.
