Knoxville Coffee Co – Old City Roast
Old City Roast is harvested and naturally processed in the Cerrado Region of the Brazilian Highlands. A longer method, this ancient processing technique allows for the coffee bean to dry in the sun allowing the coffee to absorb more sugar and nutrients before starting the roasting process. With slow roasting the beans in small batches creating a beautifully rich, very smooth, and aromatic cup of coffee.
