The Best Coffee
in New Hampshire!
Here at Coffee Coffee
in Salem New Hampshire, we believe we are are the most serious coffee roasters in all of New
Hampshire, and New England, and even possibly the world! If there is such a thing as "coffee
geeks" that would describe us perfectly.
It's hard to not take your coffee seriously
when you've been in the coffee business since 1967 as we have. Having seen the way commercial
coffee is produced, Lynn and I have decided to use all that we know, and all of our
resources, to make available a most unique and most excellent coffee roasting service and
coffee shop with the very best coffee anywhere in New
Our coffee is good for you!
There is much to say about the difference between our
selected beans versus what's available in the commercial coffee industry. But let me tell you five quick facts that
differentiates our coffee from what you buy at the store or other "boutique" coffee shops:
We slow roast our coffee for nearly 30 minutes. Commercial
coffees are flash roasted for only seven minutes. This makes the coffee burnt and acidic because the beans have not
matured in the slow roasting process.
Large international coffee farms use a variety of pesticides
that are not approved by the USDA. They can get away with this because they are not grown in the United States and
subject to US agricultural laws. Coffee that has been treated with pesticides becomes very toxic when
Our coffee is 100% organic. We know all of our growers personally. All of our coffee is rated by
the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center as "Bird Friendly Clean Organic."
It's even good for birds!
Our coffee is grown in the higher elevations, where annual
rainfall can exceed 5 inches per year. It is naturally lower in caffeine. Most commercial coffees are a robusta
blend and the average caffeine level is around 180 mg per cup. Commercial decaffeinated coffee has caffeine levels
around 70 mg per cup. Our Arabica coffees have been tested by MIT and found
to have caffeine levels of only 28 mg per cup. But don't worry, it will wake you up! Our beans are fully matured
and sun-dried at the farms before shipping. This process brings out stimulants in caffeine that are otherwise not
normally found in commercially grown coffees.
This may sound strange, but if you are drinking
decaffeinated commercial coffee, you are getting a certain amount of cholesterol intake. There are two ways to
decaffeinate coffee. One method is the Swiss water process, which takes about six hours. The other method
is utilizing animal fat, which takes about 60 seconds. Which method do you think commercial coffee uses? Throw
away the decaf! Our coffee is only around 28 mg per cup. And, it's so good, you won't want to put cream and sugar
in your coffee ever again!
Truly Fair Trade coffee.
We have spent much of our life traveling abroad and visiting Third World countries. We know how
hard coffee farmers work to produce even a small crop. We personally know all of our coffee bean growers. You
may have heard of "Fair Trade Coffee" but in the commercial coffee world, the reality is it's not very fair to
farmers. It promises to pay a higher price for their coffee, but because of corruption in local co-ops and layers
of bureaucracy, the farmer often only ends up with $.20-$.30 more per pound for the coffee he works so hard to
personally know the coffee farms we buy directly from, and choose to pay them a higher
price for their coffee than commercial coffee brokers that buy in bulk. This gives us an
advantage to getting first dibs on the rare varietals when they are fresh. A good incentive
for the hard-working growers, and the best coffees for our
Now we think that's
