Brulerie FARO is a family owned roaster run by three brothers in Sherbrooke, Quebec. Their mission is to find, roast and place on the market the best coffees and since 1982, they have been doing just that. Over the years the brothers have made several trips to find the best single origin coffees and exclusive micro-lots. They have also managed to perfect their roast to ensure they are providing customers with the highest level of quality possible.
With a wide variety of different coffees to choose from, they focus on maximizing freshness, taste and aroma, with every roast; which is why they roast all their exclusive coffee beans in small-batch ovens as well as store their green beans in a temperature-controlled environment.
Over the last 30 years or so they have managed to expand across Quebec as well as Canada and are now one of the major roasters in the region.
I was able to try their Golden Gate Espresso. A light roast with floral notes and an undertone of citrus to allow for an acidic profile. The notes offered a smooth body, light yet balanced body and a fruity finish. Overall it was a lighter espresso but offered the flavor and strength needed to get me through my day.
Check out their site to order some of their coffee for yourself and you be the judge. They also offer free shipping on orders over 3 lbs so I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
