ICYMI, we've found our Collagen Creamer's newest BFF: Vital Coffee! Our latest venture is a premium selection of globally-sourced coffee beans -- some have even won the coveted Cup of Excellence award! -- guaranteed to totally transform your morning routine.
Learn a little bit more about Vital Coffee, from how we source our world-class coffee beans to the roasting process (and everything in between).
We select the origin countries by first identifying which countries are in peak coffee season. We then work closely with our importer to seek out the most highly rated of these seasonal beans.
It all comes down to the level of care and attention given to these coffee beans before and during harvest. The beans we select are hand-picked and sorted so that only the ripest (read: premium) make it into our microlots.
We begin the selection process by testing coffee samples, which are either sent by an importer or purchased at a Cup of Excellence auction. We then do a sample roast of each coffee and our team does a blind taste test. We rate our impressions of each coffee and make our final decision based on those results.
Roasting is the process of applying heat to the coffee bean to turn it from a hard green seed into the brown bean everyone is familiar with. Each coffee has its own unique recipe that we call a roast profile. It takes a series of test roasts to dial in the ideal roast profile and therefore the best taste. It is a process of roast, taste, and repeat until it’s perfect.
Once we finish the roasting process, we immediately seal our coffee in airtight bags to secure months-long freshness. For best taste and quality, we recommend enjoying our coffee within one month of opening it.
No, our coffee beans do not contain collagen. But we do recommend pairing a cup of our coffee with Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer (available in mocha, vanilla, coconut, and gingerbread flavors) for an extra delicious start to your day. Our Collagen Creamer helps to support stronger hair, skin, nails, and joints, while also delivering an energy boost in drinkers, thanks to the MCTs found in the coconut milk powder.
