Roasting and Distribution

Our bean selection process helps to create blends in a manner that is very similar to that of a fine winemaker. Based on our commitment to an artisanal style of coffee roasting, we combine flavors to create one-of-a-kind blends. This unique approach requires close observation by a highly trained and experienced master roaster from the coffee’s raw state to finished product. Extensive cupping of the roasted coffee to tailor the requirements of each individual lot of coffee is essential. These 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, offering attractive efficiencies of production, they have yet to demonstrate an ability to react to the nuances of varying coffee condition and character. Large scale, computerized roast-to-inventory systems have proven effective in delivering good coffee, but that’s just not good enough for Fonté. Our disciplined, artisanal approach consistently delivers excellence. Recognizing that coffee beans are perishable, we developed a strict signature roast-to-order program where Fonté coffee is shipped within 24 hours of roasting and sealed in innovative packaging with one-way freshness valves to ensure top quality at delivery.
