Camano Island Coffee Roasters Review

Have a coffee question…ASK COFFEENATE!

 

This month I received 3 bags of coffee from Camano Island Coffee Roasters, a Washington based coffee roasting company.  I had no idea what to expect, and considering the string of not so good coffees that I have been shipped lately, I wasn’t really expecting much.  Much to my

surprise and enjoyment, these coffees proved to be quite exceptional!  The coffees that I recieved from them were

° Guatemala Light Roast: This coffee has a really tangy tangerine citrus characteristic with a green apple crispness on the finish.  This is a very lively coffee that perks up your taste buds!

° Papua New Guinea Medium Roast: This was my favorite coffee of the bunch.  I enjoyed each of them, but this one stood out from the crowd!  With a buttery mouthfeel taste and also brown sugar and milk chocolate tones, this coffee is something I could drink every day and nothing else!  Smooth and flavorful, this is a must try for any coffee lover.

° Brazil Dark Roast:  The Brazilian was a great coffee, but I would like to try it at a different roast level.  While the ‘dark’ roast isn’t a charred roast like most coffee companies define ‘dark’, it did possess a mild smokiness and


the dark chocolate notes that you would expect in a darker roasted coffee.  The smoke wasn’t overpowering like it can be with some companies, where it tastes like you are drinking a campfire!  The finish was dry and smooth, but there wasn’t much depth to this coffee.

Camano Coffee Roasters

Camano Coffee Roasters employs a sustainable business model that is a for profit business, and also has a mission to help disadvantaged farmers throughout the world by helping them gain land ownership.  They work directly with their farmers to improve quality of product as well as the quality of their lives!  Some certification models do a good job of assisting farmers in acquiring a ‘fair’ price for their coffees and they do offer some great benefits, but to really make a huge impact you must work closely with the farmers and also focus on quality.  This type of involvement is impossible to have with a large body such as fair trade certified.   Having a certified coffee is the quick and easy way to purchase coffee that does benefit many farmers, but a truly sustainable model can be had without certification, and Camano Island is one example.  When dealing with a company that doesn’t sell certified coffees, but claims to supports sustainability, the onus is on the consumer to do the research to ensure that they are being truthful.  In this case, Camano Island Coffee Roasters is what they say they are, and I will gladly recommend them!
