A good day starts with good coffee. Caraluzzi’s works to ensure your morning mug is of the highest quality, from the far corners of the globe to your coffee maker.
Beans are seeds of coffee cherries that grow on trees in over 60 countries, cultivated in locations mostly along the equatorial zone like Brazil, the world’s largest coffee producer. Green unroasted coffee is one of the most traded agricultural commodities in the world. Not surprising, considering 50% of American’s drink 3-4 cups of coffee a day! At Caraluzzi’s, we prefer to blend beans from the world’s best regions, from Southeast Asia to Columbia, creating one-of-a-kind coffee blends.
The cherries we use come from a variety of plants, including Arabica, Caraluzzi’s secret to a quality cup of coffee. Arabica beans are known to be more fragrant and flavorful than alternative varieties.
Once the cherries are ripe, they are picked, processed, and dried. Coffee bean harvest usually occurs only once per year, since cherries are picked at their peak ripeness. These cherries are processed in one of two ways, by either wet or dry processing, depending the type of flavors Caraluzzi’s coffee experts want to create.
