Welcome to Phil & Sebastian. It’s not so much a business as it is the single-minded pursuit of a better cup of coffee. For the past decade we’ve spent most of our waking hours dedicated to the notion that coffee can and should be better than it is. We’ve travelled the world, micro-financed projects in coffee growing countries, custom built our own roaster, co-authored graduate level studies on water, and performed countless other harebrained feats in the service of our obsession. All in the hopes that the cup of coffee we pour today, will be just the tiniest bit better than the one we served yesterday.
It’s a fortunate thing if you’re our customer, and mildly unfortunate if you’re related to us. So, with the utmost earnestness, we invite you to come by one our cafes, visit a cafe that serves our coffee, or order a bag, and let us know how we’re doing. And when we say let us know how we’re doing, we mean it. Feedback can only make us better, and that’s why we’re here in the first place.
The Hartmann Honey has been a mainstay in our lineup for five years now, and every year it gets a little bit better. The Hartmanns' approach to honey processing is innovative and unique. They simply don't do honey processing if the weather conditions aren't right. Honey processing requires very precise drying, especially at the early stages where the risk of fermentation is high. This year, as with last, the weather was perfect for their honey process: it was dry and sunny. The result is a super sweet and clean coffee.
