3rd Wave Coffee is a term used to describe a movement in the coffee industry that focuses on quality, craftsmanship, and sustainability. It is a departure from the mass-produced, commercially processed coffee of the 1st and 2nd wave. 3rd wave coffee roasters and baristas are passionate about sourcing high-quality beans from specific regions, often working directly with farmers to ensure fair trade and ethical practices. They pay meticulous attention to the entire coffee-making process, from bean selection and roasting to brewing methods, aiming to highlight the unique flavors and characteristics of each coffee variety. This movement has transformed coffee into a specialty product, with an emphasis on craftsmanship, flavor complexity, and the overall coffee experience.
