Roaster in Focus: Ceremony Coffee Roasters

“We strive to deliver the cup of coffee that changes someone’s life.” — Vincent Iatesta

Focused on sourcing uniquely beautiful, accessible coffees, Ceremony Coffee Roasters was founded fifteen years ago by Vincent Iatesta in Anapolis, Maryland. Today they are still driven by that passion for developing quality, diversity, and relationships in coffee.

According to Ronnie Haas, Wholesale Director at Ceremony,  “with wholesale accounts across the U.S., we are known for having very accessible blends and for sourcing truly unique, enigmatic coffees.”

Ceremony’s work begins with seasonally sourcing the best arabica coffee from growing regions around the world.  Traveling to and building relationships with the farms from which they purchase is crucial to their understanding of how to perfect their roasting process. Their end goal is to wholly understand the coffee with which they are working and to accurately represent it to their customers.

This month at Visions, we are featuring three truly special coffees from Ceremony:

  • Ethiopia Limu Kossa, a juicy, fruit forward single origin
  • Summer 2017 Blend, composed of Ethiopia Reko & Costa Rica Coope Tarrazú
  • Mass Appeal, a creamy, full bodied espresso composed of Mexican and Costa Rican lots

Stop by the showroom in SoDo to pick up a bag, and come taste them at the (free!) Public Tasting at the Visions’ Coffee Education Lab on August 10th. For more details check out our event page here.
