What Is Meant By Gourmet Coffee?

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 7/13/2015
What Is Meant By Gourmet Coffee?We often hear the term, “gourmet coffee”, but what actually is meant by “gourmet coffee”?Ask any connoisseur, aficionado or master brewer who markets coffee and they may tell you gourmet coffee is a stimulating drink created from coffee beans found in exotic shrubs or trees grown in the tropics of Asia or African countries. They might also try and convince you that “gourmet coffee” should demand a premium price citing the coffee’s unique preparation process of drying, grounding or roasting the bean to crate a highly unique flavor.

The fact of the matter is gourmet coffee is a subjective term, which has no affiliation with where coffee comes from, how it is processed or containing any “super flavor characteristics”. Gourmet coffee is merely a term associated with one’s perception of a superior quality coffee.

Southwest Beverages defines its Kemosabe flavored coffee as “gourmet coffee” because it contains the best quality ingredients all made in America.
