Coffee Fun Fact

In light of all our shop changes, we’ve started some new brewing methods. For the first time ever we are offering drip coffee, however we don’t just use any drip coffee maker, the brewer only makes 4-8 cups at a time so your coffee is always fresh. Our coffee brewers are designed to bring you a fresh, unique, and delicious cup of coffee that you can’t get anywhere else. Our prices for drip coffee will stay the same; however the uniqueness and cost of our “by the cup” brewers, we will charge a little more for “by the cup” coffee. Here is a bit about our brewing systems:
If you have ever had a cup of coffee at our shop, you have had a cup that was brewed in our Clover brewer, a full immersion vacuum press. The Clover wets and brews the coffee above a mesh filter. Once it is ready to serve, the machine creates a vacuum underneath the filter, sucking the coffee though. This process preserves the essential flavor oils and aromas to create a rich and vivid cup of coffee.
The Trifecta is a three step full immersion brewer. The first step of the process is the wetting stage: The coffee grounds are saturated with an exact percentage of water that is determined by each coffee region. Next is the coffee extraction: The brewer injects air bubbles into the pressurized chamber to agitate the grounds to create a uniform and complex flavor profile. The last step is hydrolysis: The brewed coffee is pushed out of the brew chamber using pressurized air, creating a full bodied cup of coffee.
The Gold Cup coffee brewer is a preinfusing pour over system. We use the Gold Cup “by the cup” brewer as well as the half gallon Gold Cup brewer. First the Gold Cup pre-wets the grounds, allowing them time to bloom. Blooming enhances the flavor of your brewed coffee by allowing the sour taste of carbon dioxide to escape. After the bloom, the Gold Cup will continue to wet the grounds at a pulsating rate. This brewer produces a smooth and well balanced cup of coffee.
As of January 1, 2019 our prices have slightly increased. We have been in business for ten years and have never raised our prices; however, because we want to continue to keep our doors open, we finally have to factor in the increasing costs of running a coffee shop. We pay our staff a living wage and keep our top of the line coffee equipment upgraded and in excellent working order. Without great coffee beans, it is pretty pointless to have a top notch staff and shop; so Jack Mormon Coffee seeks out and purchases the world’s best coffees, often from small crop farmers who generally are a part of a coffee cooperative. We pay the farmers 30% above fair-market-value (fair-trade), knowing that helping them helps us in return.
Fluctuating fuel expenses, tariffs, and crops reflect the economies of coffee producing countries, while the fluctuation of the crop size can be traced to unexpected weather events, including increased temperatures and extreme storms that can wreak havoc with a crop. The competition for our unique coffees also increases every year. More and more roasters want specialty small crop beans with unusual taste profiles, the very coffees Jack Mormon Coffee has been offering to you. Please know that we remain dedicated to sourcing the best coffees in the world.
In an effort to soften the impact of cost increases, we are implementing special promotions. In the spirit of full disclosure, the following list itemizes the cost increases of our products. Please note that we will no longer include tax on any product. In order for you to make cost comparisons, we are contrasting our prices with other coffee shops around town.
