OUR TYPES OF COFFEE

Bernhardt organic coffee was founded on the simple premise to bring four exceptional coffee roasts to the market. Our Master Roaster/Barista and coffee educator, Brandon Despain oversees all aspects of production and is dedicated in delivering to our customers, the highest standard in the industry.

In our quest, we've found the highest quality, certified organic, shade grown arabica beans—grown only at high elevations for peak flavor. This simple and straightforward approach is not as easy as it may appear. The rules that govern coffee production are all over the board so in establishing the Bernhardt standard, we committed ourselves to the "best of the best".

  • - Certified Organic by USDA
  • - Certified Fair Trade by Fair Trade Federation & Fair Trade USA
  • - Certified Shade Grown and Bird Friendly by The Smithsonian
  • - Certified High Elevation Coffee
  • - Certified Swiss Water® Process for Decaf Coffee
  • - 100% Bernhardt Arabica choice beans

It takes commitment, time and money for any coffee company to achieve these standards for their entire portfolio. But most importantly, it takes inspiration for quality improvements. Organic coffee beans are richer in flavour, have more antioxidants, are better for you and better for the planet.

GRINDS.

The second most important step for the perfect cup of coffee.

We offer a full variety of grinds from whole bean to espresso. Different brewing methods require a different grind of coffee. Paired with the perfect grind and brewed with cold, pure water we think you’ll agree, we’ve found the perfect cup of coffee.

 

WHOLE BEAN

Whole bean coffee has been through every stage of production except grinding. This allows you to pick and chose your intended grind based on brewing preference.

 

FRENCH PRESS

French press is the most coarse grind of coffee. This manual method uses a metal mesh filter to separate the brew from the grinds.

 

CHEMEX

Chemex grind is considered a medium coarseness. This process combines a pour over cone with a glass decanter. A thick paper filter is required.

 

AUTO DRIP

Auto drip is among the most popularly used grinds. The home coffee maker produces a clear, light-bodied cup of coffee free of sediments with the use of a paper filter.

 

AERO PRESS

Aero press grind is about as fine as table salt. This manual method uses a plunger to separate the grind from the brew.

 

POUR OVER

Pour over is a hand drip system of brewing coffee. The fine grind and slower process of the pour over results in the extraction of more flavor.

 

ESPRESSO

Espresso is the finest of grinds and is brewed in an espresso specific machine. This method creates high concentrated brew that is generally thicker than any other method.

WARREN ZEVON American Singer/Songwriter and Musician

Warren Zevon made one last appearance on a popular American late-night talk show, having recently gone public with a terminal diagnosis. During the interview Zevon was asked, from his perspective if he knew something about life and death that maybe others did not know? He replied, "Not unless I know how much to enjoy every sandwich." The answer was simple, succinct and so memorably Zevon.
