Papa Lin's Coffee Roasting
Aficionado Coffee Roaster

Papa Lin's Coffee Roasting is a small, “nano” roaster that dedicates to offer high quality small batch roasted specialty coffee to coffee lovers. We carefully source high quality single-origin green beans from various regions and roast with customized profiles for every customer. We put extra effort to pursue clean cup results via careful hand-picking process before and after roast. Every batch of our coffee bean is roasted after receiving order to guarantee the freshness of the coffee.

We will be close for the week of labor day (Sept. 1st to Sept. 7). All the order will be handled afterward. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Intense; complex floral and citrus. Honey, ripe lime, night-blooming flowers and a softening suggestion of milk chocolate in aroma and cup. Sweetly bright acidity; very silky mouthfeel. Flavor, particularly flowers, saturates a long, resonant finish." -Kenneth Davids, Coffee Review
