The WestBean Coffee Roasters

San Diego, CA

A cup of coffee is beautiful in its simplicity. However the process from seed to cup is far from simple. It's an unbelievable result stemming from growing, farming, processing & sorting the fruit. Every step of the process will influence the end taste. By respecting the overall process and how the green coffee made it into our hands, we make it our responsibility to explore each varietal by diving deeper and deeper into the intricacies of the roasting process. It is only when the coffee is skillfully roasted, that it has a chance to be prepared at the highest level, crafting a great cup. To us a cup of black coffee is colorful and complex in its own way. At the WestBean we let our craft speak for itself.
