Welcome to the world of The Formosa Coffee where we hand-roast every bag in New York within 24 hours of packaging and shipping to ensure the highest quality and freshness.
Our roast-to-order coffee comes directly from farms on the high mountains of central Taiwan. Every bean is hand-harvested at the peak of ripeness and sun-dried for up to two weeks with the outer fruit layer intact. This processing method and our unique roasting style gives our coffee a robust flavor profile with just the right amount of acidity and a fruity sweetness that is incredibly smooth.

The coffee is amazing! Sweet and earthy at the same time. It would be great if you guys can offer recipe or brew ratios for different brew methods.
Thanks Brian, we hope you noticed the incredibly smooth aftertaste as well! We offer brew ratios for different brew methods on our "Buy Coffee" page on the right hand side (scroll down a little) and the FAQ page.
The medium roast beans tastes quite exceptional as a pour over. It is light be balanced like the company says. Both fruity and sweet flavors come through and has a light mouthfeel. I do enjoy it at a higher water to beans ratio. I am however most impressed by customer service. I first purchased the light beans and they were just a little too light for my liking. I reached out to the customer service and they responded within an hour with a refund and recommendation to try their medium roast. they were right! I know it's hard for independent companies to eat the loss but they are here to build customer relations.
Chung-Wen, we appreciate your kind review and thank you for giving us a second chance to show you our more flavorful medium roast. Not only do we strive to provide the best coffee, we also believe customer service should always exceed our customers expectation. Once again, thank you for your support!
The medium roast Taiwan Coffee is so unique. A bouquet of bright and sweet fruit flavors with a slight spicy finish. Smooth, well balanced, medium body. I often add milk to brewed coffee, but with the Taiwan Coffee there was no need to add flavor, as it stood on its own!
Thank you so much Jordan!
This was the first time I ordered the "Light" roast and I was not disappointed! Very smooth and tasty, and also seems to have a bit more of a caffeine jolt. My son really likes this blend, but I'm partial to the "Dark" roast myself. Will be ordering again!
Thank you so much Steve! The light roast does have more caffeine as it's roasted for a shorter time, which retains more of the caffeine content.
I prepare the medium roast in a Bialetti can and drink it as cappucino. The taste is excellent, slight note of nuts, strong but not bitter. Definite recommendation. Shipping by Formosa Coffee was super swift, although international shipping and customs clearance took some time. So, no issues with international shipping - next time I'll opt for express delivery.
Thank you Harald. We are extremely glad your order arrived in great condition and you were able to brew a fantastically smooth cup!
