Laveggio Roastera is a true artisan coffee roasting operation and espresso bar located in Binghamton, NY.
We roast "Old School" on a drum roaster in the artisan tradition, which means that we roast using only our senses and experience to manage the roasting process. The use of computerized controllers to manage the environment in the drum, end the roast, or maximize loads-per-hour is not artisan roasting, and we don't use them. We also don't quench our coffee to add water/weight back at the end of the roast cycle.
Laveggio is about elevating coffee roasting and coffee preperation to its highest level, by professionals, in a focused environment. - it is not about; WIFI, big couches and food.
We roast and serve only "Specialty Coffee" that has been "Ethically Sourced". Some of our coffees are Relationship coffees where the farmer is paid a premium for the quality of their product, and many of our coffees are Organically grown. Because the Roasteria is not a Certified Organic facility, we must label our Relationship and Organic coffees as "Ethically Traded" which does not imply that we maintain Organic standards at the Roasteria.
Among other benifits, ethically sourced coffee works to eliminate the inability of many coffee farmers to feed and clothe their families, obtain adequate health care, and send their children to school by paying a premium to the farmer for a quality product. This crisis needs to be addressed by each of us; importers, roasters, cafes, and consumers.
In the Espresso Bar we brew to the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) standards using FETCO brewers. All of are espresso drinks are hand crafted on our 4 group La Marzocco Linea. We use Mazzer and Mahlkonig grinders and are obsessed with brew temps, milk texture and the perfect extraction.
