If you want a roast in the mix, we need to get some of it and run it through the paces at our facility.
The fresh draws, flash frozen and ice cream versions will be tasted and reviewed by some trusted connoisseurs.
A half dozen (more or less) will be made available for sampling at a given markets.
The LERs will be presented at each event with larger presence than any of the 5 RARs.
The RARs will rotate such that RARs get a substantively relatively equal presence with other RARs over the course of the year.
We will need a 5lb bag of your espresso roast from you to start and a $300 fee.
We will process the beans into our product mix (while documenting what it took to get the best out of your roasts) and mail back to you frozen and ice cream samples.
We will also send you some notes and commentary on our findings.
The LER will always be available as a live espresso shot in any Brick and Mortar location (save for the last hour before closing).
All RARs will rotate in as a daily alternative live espresso shot in any Brick and Mortar location.
All espressos in rotation will, when we open the Brick and Mortar, be available there (if we have stock) as flash frozen and ice cream.
If you appreciate the quality of the sample and we agree, the RAR cost for being “in rotation” is $2,000. The cost for a LER is $24,000. And, if and when we open up the Park Slope / Gowanus Brick and mortar, the LER will be present (so long as we have stock) for permanent fresh pulls on the ROK as well as frozen and ice cream.
The LER and RAR fees are entirely refundable, with 120 days notice if, and when, either you or we decide to no longer have your roast as LER or RAR.
