How does Grumpy Goat provide such great coffee?2019-07-01T16:45:05-04:00

With great coffee roasting, comes great responsibility. Choosing superb coffee takes research, experimentation, and tons of sampling. When owner Brian Abernathy decided that he wanted to bring great coffee to Bonita Springs, Florida, he decided to only choose from the most reputable and trusted sources.

All of our coffee is fully-traceable. What does that mean? It means that we know where our beans are coming from, when they were harvested and by whom. This makes a world of difference to not only the quality, but peace of mind that our coffee comes from responsible sources.

All of Grumpy Goat Coffee is also scored. There’s actually a method when it comes to our coffee madness and it’s born from the SCAA’s coffee standardization. Yep, that’s right, there’s a science to a great cup of coffee that includes:

Fragrance/Aroma: This is tested in the dry and wet coffee grounds.
Taste, Aftertaste, Acidity: How bright is the coffee? Does it have life or is it a dull, boring cup?
Body: Does the coffee bring some delicious weight to your palate?
Sweetness, Balance: Do all of the flavors complement each other?
Impression: Is it lacking anything?
Defects: Are there any negative flavors in the cup of coffee? These defects are commonly from milling, transit from origin to packaging facility, or processing mishandling.

All of the above is compiled, noted and given a score up to 100. Grumpy Goat Coffee takes these scores seriously and all of our coffee receive a score of 86 points or higher. Your palate deserves great flavor and high standards. Grumpy Goat Coffee delivers.

Which has more caffeine light, dark or medium roast coffee?2019-07-01T16:46:35-04:00

The short answer is: all roasts typically have nearly equal amounts of caffeine. The difference lies in the beans’ origination, how it’s brewed, and how big your coffee cup is.

While the aroma of a big, bold cup of coffee can help in shaking you awake in the morning, it doesn’t mean it has more caffeine. Alternatively, just because you are drinking a light roast doesn’t necessarily mean you are going to get that extra boost of caffeine either.

The biggest factor in the caffeine content of your coffee is going to be the weight to water ratio. So when you various coffee packaging and it is touting high caffeine, take a look at what their suggested serving is (tablespoons per cup, weight to water ratio, etc).

A good rule of thumb is if you want more caffeine, scoop out a healthier portion.

Now, there is a caffeine difference depending on how you’re creating your perfect cup of coffee. According to the National Coffee Association, in terms of caffeine per ounce, espresso, Nitro Cold Brew coffee, and drip coffee are among the brewing methods with the highest amount of caffeine. But again, this is primarily due to the amount of coffee being used relative to the amount of water used during the brew process.
