Clipper Coffee Co. Reserve blend is the culmination of three generations of familial experience and 35 years of the personal expertise of Tom Charleville, resulting in a multi-nuanced and balanced cup of coffee.
“It’s not only good,” Tom Charleville will tell you right off. “This is the one you’ve been looking for.” And he should know. Like the passionate artisan that he is, he chooses the beans himself and monitors the roasting.
He starts off with European Preparation green coffee beans, which is the highest quality rating reserved only for the best. Each chosen cultivar has its own personality, each making the ideal cup of coffee, but Tom doesn’t leave perfection alone. He blends four complementary coffee bean varieties and brings them to a Full City roast, which further intensifies the unique character of each coffee bean type, where the beans are roasted past the first crack and right on the verge of the second. “The sweet spot,” he’ll say. This attention to detail and small-batch roasting creates a complex, sophisticated, balanced cup of coffee you will find nowhere else.
Part of Tom Charleville’s commitment to quality coffee extends to packaging. “Don’t kick the can… yet” he likes to say. The vacuum-packed can may be old school, but it is still the best at delivering the freshest ground coffee with absolutely no preservatives. Plus, the metal can and plastic lid are easily recyclable.
