Joe Bean Coffee Roasters

Thanks to Joe Bean Coffee Roasters for showing me around their shop at 182 North Ave., Webster, NY, yesterday morning! The company roasts fair trade, organic beans from around the world. If you're a Rochester local, their products can be purchased at their shop and additionally are available elsewhere around town, such as at Abundance Cooperative Market (62 Marshall Street) and Lento (274 N. Goodman Street), a restaurant dedicated to utilizing small-scale, local food production. If you're from out of town, you can make purchases here. Also, check out their Facebook page for updates on events and open houses.

I watched as the coffee was 'cupped', a tasting technique performed in order to determine each coffee's flavor profile:

Earlier this month, I also caught Joe Bean baristas serving coffee at the Rochester Roots "Growing Together Community Garden Conference." To see these photos and more, visit my Flickr page.
