Acadia Coffee Company Roasted Coffee

 

Our mission:
We have worked hard to ensure our customers not only get the highest quality coffee but that their coffee is sourced in an environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable manner.  Great coffee is our passion, but making sure generations of people we do business with have a bright future is equally important.  That is why we ONLY buy and sell "Fair Trade" and "Organic" certified coffee.

From Mexico to Maine!
Special care has been taken in sourcing some of the best coffee beans in the world, mostly from the mountains of Chiapas, Mexico. That same commitment and devotion is taken in the roasting of the beans in Bar Harbor Maine. 

We believe in the importance of ingredients, craftsmanship, and maintaining supportive relationships with Specialty Coffee Farmers through sustainable sourcing and long term
relationships. 

What Is Micro Roasted Coffee?
Micro roasted coffee is coffee that is roasted in small batches to exact specifications. The batches of coffee are generally less than 100 pounds, versus the hundreds of pounds roasted in each batch in commercial factories. Acadia Coffee Company roasts each small batch to order with much love and care. Roasting is essential and the final step in coffee production. It requires the perfect timing and setting of temperature to get the best flavors out of each bean. While the beans roast, their chemical composition change,  the outer shell will split and their complex flavors will be released. How strong the coffee’s flavor is depends greatly on the bean roasting formula.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Where does coffee come from?

If you love coffee, have you ever stopped to wonder how coffee is made? Many people imagine coffee beans growing on a plant but what they don’t know is that coffee doesn’t start in the form of a bean at all. A coffee bean is actually a seed that comes from a specific type of berries. Therefore, we can say that coffee beans actually come from a fruit!
Coffee berries usually contain beans that are split in two. However, in around 5% of the beans harvested it can happen that a bean doesn’t split and this type of a coffee bean is popularly called Peaberry since its shape resembles a pea.
When it comes to length of the whole production process, a coffee tree can take up to five years to produce its precious fruit and it cannot grow in every climate. In order to produce a good harvest, a coffee tree will require special care with the attention to soil. The climate where this type of tree can grow is typically a warm climate of subtropical regions and equatorial regions.

 

What sets you apart from other coffee roasters? 


Between the three partners, one of them grew up in the mountains of Chiapas, Mexico – true coffee country -  another has spent every winter in Brazil, Mexico and elsewhere in Latin America, and the third brings the organization needed to make Acadia Coffee Company your source for fair trade, organic coffee beans picked and handled with care. For many of us, coffee is one of those life necessities and splendors we just can’t live without. Some people cannot even picture starting their day without a nice warm cup of coffee. And don’t forget about that mid-day slump when coffee is what gets us through the rest of the day. 

 

What makes your beans special?

Special care has been taken in sourcing some of the best coffee beans in the world and that same commitment and devotion is taken in the roasting of the beans, daily, in beautiful Bar Harbor Maine. Roasting is essential and the final step in coffee production. It requires the perfect timing and setting of temperature to provide the perfect product. While the beans roast, they will split and their coating will be released. How strong the coffee’s flavor is depends greatly on the bean roasting formula. For example, the longer the beans roast the more intense the flavor will be. Ironically, it is assumed the stronger the flavor, the more caffeine. However it is actually the opposite which is true. The longer the coffee beans roast, the more the chemical, caffeine, is removed. Roasting is an art form and our roasters are like a young Van Gogh with some Matisse and even Jackson Pollock with a Banksy kick. Our head roaster has been roasting coffee for a while now and know a thing or two about how to roast the perfect bean.

 

What are the different roasting levels?

The best way to describe coffee roast levels is by the color of the roasted beans. But coffee beans vary in quality and character, so color is not the only way to judge a roast. A roaster will control the roasting temperature and listen for bean ’cracking’ to yield a particular shade of brown over an appropriate time. The coffee beans take on the heat in the roasting machine and their color becomes darker. You will see the natural oils appear on the beans as the temperature increases. Roasting is as much an art as a science. And it’s fun too. The levels of roasts range from light to medium to dark to extra dark.

 

Light -
Light brown with a lighter body and no oils are evident on the beans. Light roasts have a toasted grain taste and stronger acidity. The flavors of the bean are retained to a greater extent than in darker roasted coffees which take on different flavors as they get darker. Light roasts also retain most of the caffeine from the coffee bean.

Medium -
A nice medium brown in color with a
little more body than light roasts. They also have no oil on the bean surfaces like the lighter roasts. Medium roasts, however, lack the sometimes grainy taste of the light roasts, having a more balanced flavor, aroma, and acidity. Caffeine is often decreased as well. 

Medium-Dark - 
Richer and darker in color and here we start to see some oil beginning to show on the surface of the beans. Not a lot of oil, just a nice sheen. A medium-dark roast will produce a drink that is heavier in body.

Dark and Extra Dark -
The most popular and we admit to
being a bit partial to dark roasts as well. These coffees are dark brown like
chocolate, or sometimes almost black.
