The Jacu bird lives in South America and is known for something quite extraordinary; It flies from coffee plantation to coffee plantation and picks and eats the tastiest coffee cherries. The fruit makes its way through the bird’s digestive system, and the seeds of the fruit – coffee beans – come out perfectly processed. These coffee beans are among the most exclusive in the world. This story has inspired us, and the bird has lent its name to the new micro-roastery in Ålesund, Norway.
JACU COFFEE ROASTERY was established in 2011. Like the jacu bird, they pick and roast only the best beans. They look for great plantations, optimal processing, and the roasting profiles which will make the most out of each bean. They work with passion, patience, and without compromise.
