As we reach the late-summer months, some truly wonderful experiences begin to manifest, and we’re reminded why summertime is associated with life, fun, and happiness.
Most people go to coffee shops for the convenience and perhaps to enjoy a particular brew. When making coffee at home however, one has control over all aspects of the end product. There are a multitude of subtle differences that can have a profound effect on your cup of coffee: bean type, grind coarseness, ground-to-water ratio.
If you’ve taken a look at what the coffee market has to offer, then you may have noticed the term “specialty” used to distinguish certain coffees. These usually produce a higher quality brew, but what exactly makes specialty coffee so special? The answer isn’t as simple as you may think.
Here at Minas Espresso, we take pride in ensuring our entire process is done sustainably while maintaining the utmost quality—from the start of our coffee’s journey on a farm in Brazil, to its final destination in your morning mug. From growing to harvesting to processing, our farmers are personally involved every step until the beans are shipped to the United States.
Are you looking to try out new recipes or put a spin on your go-to coffee this May?

Caffeine has been around for centuries, and has enjoyed its fair share of popularity since its inception... but have you ever wondered why it’s so universally loved? The folks over here at Minas Espresso just can’t get enough of it, and so we wanted to share some insight into how it came about, and why it remains so popular to this day.
Your morning demands a good stretch and an even better cup of brew, and honestly there’s nothing like waking up already knowing what morning beverage you're going to order. Recent events have left many in the house for days, weeks and even months which is a tragedy for us coffee lovers who like to grab-n-go on the commute to work, with morning errands or just because. Temporary closings of local café spots forced many to figure out that morning caffeine fix via the internet and for the most part it seems to be a success. If you have milk, cream, whipped cream, Tiktok, some kitchen creativity and of course Minas Coffee you’re one step away from becoming your very own barista.

That means it is even more important to show the people in our lives how much they mean to us. There is something for every coffee lover and drinker in our 2020 Minas Espresso Gift Guide.
