Fit & Fuel is proud to exclusively serve Panther Coffee, a Miami-based specialty coffee roaster.
Using a pre-WWII Probat Perfekt Roaster, Panther Coffee roasts all of its beans on-site in small batches. All of their beans originate in farms that were personally selected by Panther Coffee owners Joel and Leticia Pollock, and have been chosen for their taste as well as their individuality.
The Pollocks benefit from longstanding relationships with coffee producers throughout the world. These friends and colleagues not only possess generations of knowledge and passion, but they produce some of the finest lots of coffee available anywhere.
After the selection of green coffee beans, Joel uses his 20 years of experience to roast them, achieving correct development and caramelization of the sugars present within the coffee bean, without the conversion of these caramelized sugars into carbon, which can result in an ashy or smoky taste. Great care is taken to expose the natural sweetness and the most subtle flavor nuances often lost in the roasting process.
Always, Panther Coffee’s mission is to source, roast and prepare the finest coffees in the world, creating a transaction that is mutually beneficial for all participants. This includes the producer and his or her land, workers, and community; the Panther Coffee company, including staff, their families and the neighborhoods in and around which it operates; and the coffee consumer.
Panther Coffee pursues constant improvement in coffee quality in a sometimes playful and always intellectually curious way, including those as yet unforeseen or unavailable. Additionally, Panther Coffee makes every effort to keep its footprint small in terms of energy use and waste production.
