    Coffee for the Cause is a coffee roaster that works exclusively with nonprofits to help them raise money for the projects and causes that are important to them.

    As a coffee roaster, we take pride in the coffee that we sell.  There are generally 2 types of coffee beans – Robusta Bean and Arabica Bean.  The Robusta beans have more caffeine and acid and are generally less expensive than Arabica beans. Coffee for the Cause only roasts and sell higher quality Arabica beans.

    Arabica beans are grown all around the world in the tropics between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn.

    We buy our beans from coffee brokers who purchase coffee from fair trade farms and plantations all over the world.


    Why we do
    what we do

    As roasters, we have decided to use the roast chart shown about Coffee Roasting, to illustrate the coffee roasts we use.  We use the roasts in the middle of the chart, City Roast, Full City Roast, Vienna Roast, and French Roast.

    The 4 lighter roasts have a “grassy”, flavor and Italian Roast (The darkest roast on the chart) has a burnt taste to it.

    We believe the roasts we offer our customers, are the roasts that most people enjoy.

    Our Roasts

    219 °C (426 °F), City Roast

    Medium brown, common for most specialty coffee. Good for tasting origin character, although roast character is noticeable.

    225 °C (437 °F), Full City Roast

    Medium-dark brown with dry to tiny droplets or faint patches of oil, roast character is prominent. At the beginning of second crack, body is fully developed.[32]

    230 °C (446 °F), Vienna Roast

    Moderate dark brown with light surface oil, more bittersweet, caramel flavor, acidity muted. In the middle of second crack. Any origin characteristics have become eclipsed by roast at this level.

    240 °C (464 °F), French Roast

    Dark brown, shiny with oil, deep caramel undertones, acidity diminished. At the end of second crack. Roast character is dominant, little of the inherent aroma or flavors of the coffee remain.[33]
