President/CEO and Founder Ron Green is pleased to announce a new partnership with the H. C. Valentine Coffee Company to roast Another Broken Egg Cafe's (ABEC) first proprietary coffee selections. The artisan coffee is made from the highest quality beans from Central and South America and Ethiopia. The new micro-roasted, specialty coffees will be served at all ABEC's 26 plus locations by the end of June. The Another Broken Egg Cafe Barista Reserve Blend has pronounced acidity and full body.
"It took three years from my initial meetings to this final stage of partnership to develop the perfect blend for our new Another Broken Egg Cafe Barista Reserve," says Ron Green. "We believe our guests will be extremely pleased with this boutique coffee. In line with our company values, we have chosen to incorporate certified beans. Some are organic, others are Rainforest Alliance Certified. Our decaffeinated coffee is created using a non-chemical method called the Swiss Water Process. Through purchasing practices like these, we strive to ensure the sustainability of our world, our families and our business."
H.C. Valentine is the sister operation to the larger coffee production facility Royal Cup. Its coffee is artisan "sight roasted" by Roastmaster Stacy Hawkins who has 16 years of experience. Hawkins roasts one bag at a time and blends after each roast. H. C. Valentine roasts 120 to 150 pounds compared to the larger scale productions at the Royal Cup plant, which uses several roasters to handle 550 pounds to 1,000 pounds at a time.
