Our bean selection process for blends is similar to that of a fine winemaker. Based on our commitment to an artisanal style of coffee roasting, we combine beans to create one-of-a-kind blends. This approach requires close observation by a highly trained and experienced master roaster—from the coffee’s raw state to the finished product. Extensive cupping of the roasted coffee is essential to create the concept envisioned by the roaster. Our specialty blends have a sophisticated taste that appeal to both coffee lovers and food aficionados alike. While serviceable methods of digital control exist for the roasting of coffee and offer attractive production efficiency, they have yet to demonstrate the ability to react to the nuances of varying coffee condition and character. Fonté achieves higher standards by hand-roasting every batch; our disciplined, artisanal approach consistently delivers excellence. Recognizing that coffee beans are perishable, we developed a signature roast-to-order program where Fonté ships just-roasted coffee sealed in packaging with one-way freshness valves to ensure top quality at delivery.
