No Sleep till……BROOKLYN!
Quality control is a full time gig. Yes we make the coffee, but we can’t rest until the rest is done.
We believe that in coffee making, as in life there, are rules that need to be followed (wadaya mean I can’t park here?!?) Our simple rule for good coffee making is that what you put into it is exactly what you’ll get out of it and our goal is to consistently get the best-tasting cup of coffee around from our process.
To reach that goal we have 5 separate quality control checks that are done with each batch of beans. Everyone knows that good coffee starts with good beans so the physical characteristics of the roasts are analyzed to look for consistency in the beans for a uniform flavor. After roasting, special attention is given to the grind. The grinding process is extremely important to the end taste of the coffee- too coarse and it won’t brew properly, too thin and you can get a bitter, acidic taste. Supervisors monitor the grinding process and inspect the ground before it and be ready for packaging.
Two points of the packaging process are scrutinized for absolute perfection 1) the filling portion: all cups must get exactly the specified amount of coffee grounds in order to preform properly in brewing and 2) the end product: The single serve pods pass on a conveyer belt and are hand checked for physical defects. Every cup that has even the slightest imperfection is set aside and does not get boxed for shipment. Once the product is produced a sample can be taken from each lot for brewing -the aromatics are evaluated and the tastes are tested (Our Favorite Part!) to ensure it meets BBR standards.
We love everything about our coffee but we want to be sure that everyone else does as well. So to join us in our java journey we partnered with some of the best coffee roastmasters from the most well-known coffee mills in America to ensure that all Brooklyn Bean products are not just good but exceptional.
Through a methodical trial and error process we have been able to set quality assurance standards to guarantee that our state of the art machinery produces pods that will perform in every single serve coffee brewer on the market today. When it comes to single serve cups, from the roasting processes to our taste testers to our patented filtration system all the way down to our shipping dept. – Our goal is to only let the highest quality coffee pass through our doors.
