Quality you can taste
When you drink Espresso Republic®, you know you are you drinking quality with integrity. We endlessly strive to create roasts that cater to both the coffee connoisseur and curious consumer alike, offering nuanced flavors that are immediately rewarding and approachable for all palates.
Roasting is center stage
At Espresso Republic, roasting is our center stage, our obsession. We roast on state-of-the-art modern equipment that is energy efficient and capable of progressive profiling. We receive samples of green coffee frequently; we sample roast in small batches, formally cup them while taking notes, and if we like it, we re-roast and taste again for purchase consideration. Potential espressos are also dialed in and tasted at different extractions on a weekly basis. Every step in Quality Control is documented and scrutinized. There is no detail that is passed over.Roasting commands our full attention, it forces us to focus.
Roasting happens fast, and its our job to keep up, using all our senses and sometimes our intuition. A few degrees, a matter of seconds can be the difference between excellence and mediocrity. Not only is it important for coffees to be roasted to their best potential, but consistency is crucial. A perfect roast is a moving target, and that is our goal each time. The more consistent the coffee is, the better it can be brewed deliciously, repeatedly. You have our word, but the coffee speaks for itself.
Espresso Republic was founded in 2010 by Rabih Sater. After having sipped his first specialty coffee, and with a passion for food and beverage, he ventured into the coffee world with excitement. It inspired him to share the life-changing experience he had with coffee with everyone locally.
