Carolina Coffee Roasting Company was formed in 1992 to preserve the fine tradition of small batch coffee roasting. Their esteemed Roast Master has devoted his career to the study of coffee bean cultivation, selection, roasting and blending.
Their Coffees are roasted in small batches. This has several benefits. First and foremost, it ensures that our coffee that leaves the roastery is very fresh. Roasting in small batches also allows precise control over the roasting profile, giving them the ability to perfect each coffee.
They research and select coffees from among the finest quality Arabica beans from Indonesia, South and Central America and Africa. They proudly purchase coffees that contribute to saving delicate ecosystems of coffee growing communities.
Ethiopia is where Coffea arabica, the coffee plant, originates. The plant is now grown in various parts of the world.
Coffee production in Ethiopia is a longstanding tradition. Ethiopia itself accounts for around 3% of the global coffee market. Coffee is important to the economy of Ethiopia; around 60% of foreign income comes from coffee, with an estimated 15 million of the population relying on some aspect of coffee production for their livelihood. In 2006, coffee exports brought in $350 million, equivalent to 34% of that year's total exports.
