Welcome! For those of you who don't know me, I'm Carolyn. A designer, artist, and coffee enthusiast. I also really love cats.
Between the office, home, and traveling- I hope that Cup of Jao can deliver delicious, consumable and portable hand roasted coffee for you. We roast all the coffee to order. The coffee available changes week to week.
Before roasting my own coffee, I'd purchase fresh roasted whole beans in 1lb bags. However, I'd always only go through -maybe- half of the bag before the rest were past the peak of freshness. Between working and traveling, it was hard to break free from consuming K-cups or Starbucks. Frustrated by the price and lifestyle limitations, I started looking into roasting my own. I began experimenting with oven and stove top roasts, eventually purchasing a small batch coffee roaster and haven't looked back since.
All packaging we use is biodegradable. We also donate a portion of the proceeds to a nonprofit each month, which we choose from suggestions by Cup of Jao members. March 2017 was Planned Parenthood :)
What is a Pour Over Packet?
On the go? Traveling? Camping? Need some for the office? Don't have access to a grinder?
We also offer pre-packaged pour over packets. Grounded coffee is sealed into a convenient packet. Just open, hook to your mug, and pour hot water. Be careful not to over pour, though- unless you like grounds in your coffee :)
Our packets individually sealed.
How do I use it?
First, open outer pouch:
1) Tear open brew pouch along dotted line
2) Place pouch on your cup
3) Pour 1-2oz of hot water (we recommend around 200 degrees Fahrenheit)
- Allow coffee to "bloom" for 20 seconds
- Add 4-6oz of additional Hot Water (based on your strength preferences)
