The Third Wave of Coffee

Craft Coffee Third Wave

There is a coffee revolution brewing! The third wave of coffee refers to the current movement to consider coffee as an artisan beverage, like fine wine. Coffee’s first wave put Maxwell House “good to the last drop” coffee on America’s tables in the 1800’s. The second wave of coffee spread from the west coast across the nation with the rise of drinking grande mocha lattes in specialty coffee shops. Coffee’s third wave involves improving all stages of production from better coffee plant growing, harvesting, and processing to micro-roasting single-origin coffee beans to precise brewing techniques that produce an exquisite cup.
