Cosmic Coffee Co. uses only specialty graded green coffee.
The quality of our specialty green coffee is rated according to a grading system and the presence of molds or mycotoxins will significantly lower the score. Coffee farmers who grow for the specialty coffee industry know this very well. Specialty green coffee stands for added attention to every detail from growing to harvesting to packaging. This is very important to the specialty coffee industry. It goes without saying this raises the premiums for these specialty coffees vs commodity coffees.
The idea of moisture fluctuations during storage has been known for many years. Our specialty green coffees are packaged in hermetic bags inside the jute bags to maintain good quality coffee during shipping and storage. Specialty green coffee must be protected from changes in moisture content and microorganisms such as fungi. Moisture content and temperature are among the most critical factors that affect the quality of green coffee during storage. The normal harvesting moisture content for specialty coffee farmers in the tropics is 11% to 12%. The key to successful hermetic storage is air-tightness and control of moisture content. Our warehouse facility has insulated walls, ceiling and climate control.
