We choose exclusively specialty grade coffee for the superior flavor potential these beans provide and roast from a Raoian coffee paradigm
We are striving towards being one of the best in the business, producing the tastiest most delightful coffee. We understand the immense difficulty this goal poses, since good coffee is a deep, multifaceted well of ever-changing variables, seemingly untraceable factors and a vast array of unknowns and undiscovered relevant data. Nevertheless we have set our course to join the ranks of the best in the business. Thus, we choose exclusively specialty grade coffee for the superior flavor potential these beans provide and roast from a Raoian coffee paradigm, convinced this empirically based approach is the most consistent with both the actual reality of the bean and with the final flavor in the coffee drinkers cup (all else being equal).
If the time ever comes when we need to compromise quality in order to continue the business, that will also be the time when we get out of the business. We are not interested in simply making a profit, but as the name Telos suggests, we are goal oriented and purpose driven, and part of that goal is consistently improving the quality of our product, of our customer service, and of our relationship and positive influence with the community where we are set.
We have taken a bit of a plunge in beginning this business, but we are optimistic that it will pay off 100 fold. We are excited about the people who will be passionate about the coffee we produce and just as interested in and appreciative of all the complexities that make it great!
