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 gives our coffee a robust flavor profile with just the right amount of acidity and a fruity smooth after taste.

I purchased a bag of whole beans to grind and use in my French press at home. These beans have a bold, mature flavor lacking the sour or burnt notes you often get in other coffees. Comforting chocolate aroma. Potent caffeine content--feeling pretty wired after one cup. The roast date on the bag showed that the beans had been prepared 2 days prior to when I received them in the mail!
Thank you Katherine! We aim to always provide the freshest roasted coffee! The time stamp on the bag shows that we completed your custom roast within 24 hours of shipping!
After nearly two weeks of brewing and drinking every morning the two different roasts from The Formosa Coffee, it is clear that these are premium quality beans handled and roasted with great skill and care. 2 1/2 bags in, I have yet to come across a broken bean. Dark roast beans are oily and fragrant without hints of being burnt. Both beans grind evenly and consistent. Dark - Fine grind - 1:2.85 - Espresso - 1/5 crema - Robust initial impact, quickly fades to toasted brown sugar, dark chocolate and a hint of citrus. Great as whole-milk latte. Medium - Medium Coarse grind - 1:17 - Pour over - good balance of sweet and acid, straight-forward and almost too easy to drink, dark brown sugar, roast nuts, dry-citrus-ish(?) Overall we are loving the offerings! Hope there will be a Light-roast option in the future.
Thank you Chris! We are grateful for your review and a light-roast option is planned for the near future.
Loved your coffee. It doesn’t give any bitterness and is so smooth. I love what you guys are doing for the earth and Taiwan!
Thank you Ellen for your support!
We love the coffee! Much richer and much more flavor than expected- one of the few coffees I can drink black! Shipping was fast, and the customer service was incredibly responsive- they offered to replace the part of the order that was damaged in shipping. Amazing! Will be ordering more!!
Thank you Linda! We are so appreciative of your support!
As a Taiwanese-American working in specialty coffee, I am so excited about this coffee! I ordered the medium roast, whole bean. 205 degree water, 20 grams ground on 14/40 on Baratza Virtuoso for Kalita, 330 grams water. I think my brew time was about 2 minutes and 30 seconds. The taste was good, and the flavor profile one-dimensional. Not sure if this is characteristic of the region since I have nothing else from Taiwan to compare it to. I will definitely be recommending this to my family and colleagues!
Thank you Jessica! The main characteristic of our coffee is it's mild flavor and smoothness.
