Their coffees are roasted to highlight the nuances of their country of origin, all while bringing out the nice caramelization that occurs in a medium-roasted coffee. To make sure the flavor is just right, Trailhead does extensive taste testing, spends a lot of time with different brewing methods, and drinks a ton of espresso. All of this is in the name of research! Their dedication to the science of brewing the perfect cup of coffee shows!
