You may be familiar with the term “single origin” as a category used to signal coffee of high quality. But what makes single origin coffee so special and why choose it over other alternatives? Keep reading to discover the answer.
What Is Single Origin Coffee?
This term refers to coffee that comes from a single source, be it a single producer, a country, or a region within a country. The term is applied in different ways because at the moment there’s no official standard to help define what exactly constitutes single origin coffee.
As fluid as it might be, the term has come to denote coffee of outstanding character, an association that parallels categories used for other prized products, like “single malt” for whiskey, and “single vineyard” for wine.
Why Choose Single Origin Coffee?
- Unique character: Single origin coffees tend to be bolder than coffee blends, with unique flavor profiles that can be intriguing, challenging, and outright thrilling. Finding the ideal coffee to satisfy your personal taste can be extremely rewarding.
- A richer experience: Choosing single origin coffees means learning more, not only about the coffee you drink but also about the characteristics and the history of the countries where that coffee is produced. This way, your tasting experience is turned into a learning opportunity that many find as stimulating as a good cup of joe.
- Improve the overall quality of coffee and help farmers: Finally, when you choose single origin coffee you contribute to drive the quality across the entire coffee industry and also help farmers (often located in poor countries) get paid a fairer price for a product that consumers appreciate.
