While traveling through Europe, I noticed that coffee in Italy always tastes best. That is because they roast locally and manage to brew and serve it within 8-14 days after roasting. At our home in Naples, Florida, we buy coffee from the supermarket that is often more than 120 days old. That is why I decided to start Peak Flavor Coffee. Because I wanted to have a fresh roast at home. Not older than 14 days. Served the Italian way. Try it out for yourself and taste the difference. I predict, you will never have a generic supermarket coffee again.
Peak Flavor Coffee was made just for us. We created a blend of 3 different organic Arabica origins with matching Italian roast profiles for all of our fresh roasts. Together with our roast-master and some Italian Barista’s, we taste-tested both in the USA and in Europe until we knew we got it right. We have been drinking it ever since and enjoy every Peak Flavor Coffee moment with friends and family. Together with my husband, we cherish a Peak Flavor Coffee moment every morning. It is our own indulgent house-blend.
It was never intended to be released to the public. After sharing our house blend with friends, we noticed that coffee lovers appreciate the authenticity of Peak Flavor Coffee. This is quality you can taste. So, enjoy a coffee moment with us.
600+ Farmer Friends
We only select beans from farmer friends, we know well. We
use a selection of natural & washed Arabica from farmers we personally know
in Brasil, Honduras & Vietnam. To maintain consistency & natural
sweetness, we avoid rare specialty beans with high acidity and off-flavors.
+42% Roasting Development Phase
We roast in small lots with a long development time. Our
Italian roast master focuses on an extended development phase. During this
phase, our beans caramelize to deliver natural sweetness. We drop our beans at
about 438 degrees, well before 2nd crack to get mildness without
burnt notes. We roast fresh, only when you order.
+32% more sustainable packaging
We package in small, sustainable packaging only. Small is
beautiful! We package your order in small packs to make sure you can brew and
consume our fresh roast between day 8-14 at your home. Offering fresh roasts
only helps us using more sustainable packaging. Organic and without the need
+50% more natural sweetness
Our fresh roasts deliver more natural sweetness without
acidity. More smoothness without sour notes. More creaminess without any burnt
off-flavors. As a result, you can indulge in our fresh roasts without having to
add much sugar, milk-fat or artificial sweetener.
"We absolutely love coffee. Especially in the morning. An Italian-style, fresh roast is our favorite. Hard to get here in the USA. Our idea was to make an Italian-style, fresh roast available to everybody in America. To do that, we roast an individual small lots of coffee, especially for you. Only when you order. Then we pledge to deliver to your home within 8 days of the roast. So, you get to enjoy your coffee moment when the coffee is at its best. We call it Peak Flavor Coffee, because we believe fresh always tastes better." -Melicent Bussey
NEW trees initiative
We believe that you can change the world for the better by making humble contributions. Honduras is home to >100.000 small coffee farmers, who carve out a living by growing some of the best quality coffee cherries. High altitude coffee cherries from our selected farmer friends are the backbone of our naturally sweet, smooth and creamy fresh roasts. To preserve coffee
cherry quality & minimize our carbon footprint, we make a humble sustainability contribution. For every 2 Kilograms of fresh roasted coffee, we donate & plant a new coffee tree. We call it the “New Trees Initiative”.
With new coffee trees, our framer friends can earn a better living. New trees’ green foliage helps reduce carbon in our atmosphere with a humble contribution to reduce global warming. Want to know more about our new tree initiative, write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
