Rogers Family Company Stellar Brew Review
Medium Roast: Whole Bean
Price: $9.99, 12 oz.
Rogers Family Company was kind enough to send us four bags of their gourmet whole bean Organic Coffee Company brand for review. Rogers Family Company is a privately held, 100% family-owned and operated company that was established in 1979. Rogers Family Company uses only the finest Arabica beans for their coffees, featuring Regular (Full-City) Standard Roast, Espresso Roast, French Roast, and an Extra Dark Roast. Rogers Family Company sells whole bean and ground regular, decaf and flavored coffees as well as OneCup products for use in Keurig brewers at great prices.
Unlike some other coffee companies that let their coffee rest before packaging, Rogers Family Company locks the coffees’ freshness right away as they seal the roasted coffee away from the harmful effects of the air within minutes of roasting.
Rogers Family Company brands include Organic Coffee Company, San Francisco Bay Coffee, Black Mountain Gold Coffee, Fairwinds Coffee, Jerusalem Kosher Coffee, Pleasant Hill Coffee, East India Tea & Coffee and Organic Tea Company. Their philosophy is to guarantee customers that they will love their products or your money back. The company provides free shipping on orders of $50 or more (excludes shipments to Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, and any international states).
Rogers Family Company’s charitable and environmental efforts are admirable as well.
The Rogers family owns and operates coffee farms in Mexico, Panama and Rwanda. The company strives to solve the poverty that exists in coffee communities by improving the education, housing, health, and sanitary conditions for workers and their families on farms where they do business. Rogers Family Company has a Community Aid Program that has restored thousands of acres of rainforest, planting their own coffee on organic, shade grown farms. They stand for premium, sustainable, fair and direct trade coffee at prices you’ll appreciate.
Nominate an active duty soldier overseas in a war zone and Rogers Family Company will send him or her a bag or two of free coffee. One look at the long list of thank you notes on this page and you have to admire the Rogers family for their generous donations to our troops.
Stellar Brew is a Regular (Full-City) Standard Roast coffee according to the website but it certainly comes off as a dark roast coffee when brewed. When opening the package of coffee the Stellar Brew whole bean coffee had the strong roasted smell of a deep, dark roasted coffee. The coffee beans were uniformly dark with an oily shine, a good sign of a strong tasting roast coffee. We ground the whole beans using our Infinity Conical Burr Grinder. The Stellar Brew coffee was brewed in our Capresso SG120 12-Cup Stainless Steel Coffee Maker, and also our French Press, and it was tasted with and without half and half.
Stellar Brew turns out to be one of our favorite coffees we’ve reviewed on the blog to date. Stellar Brew lives up to its name – it is a stellar cup of coffee! When tasting the Stellar Brew coffee I was very impressed with the taste of dark roast in this medium roast coffee that has a fantastic depth of flavor. The Stellar Brew has a smooth, full-bodied, deep chocolate flavor with a touch of smoky aftertaste and slight dark roast bitterness that any dark roast coffee fan would appreciate.
Rogers Family Company whole bean coffees are roasted by a master roaster. The Rogers Family method of packing coffee beans right after roasting keeps flavors intact to deliver one fantastic cup of java! This full-bodied coffee is one of the best medium roast coffees I’ve had the pleasure to taste. Stellar Brew is delicious and ideal for your everyday cup or to savor on a lazy weekend when there is nothing more you’d like to do than appreciate a sip of finely roasted coffee. I highly recommend purchasing Rogers Family Company Stellar Brew coffee for its outstanding smooth, full-bodied, deeply-roasted flavor.
