In 1990, Rao’s Coffee Roasting Company began micro-roasting the finest coffees in the world right inside our flagship cafe in Amherst. The quality and flavor of our coffee is the result of years of passion, experimentation, and dedication. We are certain you will taste the substantial differences in freshness, quality, and flavor- our mission is to source the highest quality fairly-traded green coffee beans available from around the world. We roast them to order in small hand-crafted batches with precision and care.
We specialize in revealing the prized flavor profiles of single origin coffees grown at high altitudes, (3,500 ft – 6,000 ft, temperature 60-75 degrees F) in shade grown regions of South and Central America, Africa, and Indonesia. Each region offers its own distinctive flavor profile described in more detail in our bean guide.
