Andrew Chalk, our senior contributing editor has discovered a fantastic new take on coffee from an unexpected group of founders. The excerpt below from Craftbeverages.com and Andrew's analysis immediately following this excerpt will guide you to what we feel will provide a new coffee pleasure for you and your customer's senses.
Back in 2002, the term "Third Wave Coffee" was introduced into the lexicon of the coffee industry.
History Of Third Wave Coffee
The term “third wave” is relatively new, so there is not much history to talk about. The use of the term began in 2002 with an article by Trish Rothgeb (formerly Trish Skeie) of Wrecking Ball Coffee Roasters. In the article, published in the Roasters Guild publication, The Flamekeeper, Rothgeb defined the three coffee movements as “waves”. Following this description, “third wave” became the mainstream term representing the movement.
The third wave is, in many ways, a reaction. It is just as much a reply to bad coffee as it is a movement toward good coffee. – Trish R. Skeie, Wrecking Ball Coffee Roasters
