Sourcing great coffee requires great diligence. Our lab staff sorts through thousands of samples per year, analyzing appearance, grade, defects, moisture content, and cup quality to select the best lots for our clients. We cup up to 30 lot samples each morning for purchase evaluation, contract approval, arrival quality verification, and to develop detailed cupping notes and quality scores.
In addition to providing Atlas’ in-house QC, our facility and team are also available to assist our customers in their own pursuit of coffee perfection. Our fully outfitted lab meets SCAA standards and is furnished with a 5 barrel Probat sample roaster, 3 kilo Diedrich roaster, La Marzocco espresso machine, Ditting grinders, Marco boilers, and all the other tools and gadgets needed to evaluate coffee.
