The Origin Roast

The Origin Roast

Ceremony of the Ancestors

The Origin Roast is our traditional "ceremonial" roast that started the journey to Tinycup. It remains our truest statement of intent to honor the history and tradition of small-batch pan-roasted coffee.

You simply can't go wrong with The Origin that inspired our signature roasts. It's a straight forward, full-bodied dark roast packing a lot of strength, bold flavor, and occasional bright notes

This is your ritual morning kicker to start the week or your personal celebration for making it through! In either case, you'll feel cared for by a premium roast that marks the very beginning of the Tinycup story.

Experience the full-on sensory joy your own personal batch of carefully pan-roasted Ethiopian Arabica coffee beans.

Arabica coffee beans

Cupping Notes

"This cup is soft and fragrant and has a distinctive flavor that is both exotic and classic. This coffee is produced in the region of Yirga Cheffe, one of the most distinguished regions of Africa. This Ethiopian coffee is wet-processed to improve its acidity and enhance its clean floral notes, giving it a medium intensity of spice and herb flavors.

"This is why we are very confident that when you buy freshly roasted Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee you will be treating yourself to one of the most distinctive coffees."

These notes are provided from our supplier Abyssinia Specialty Coffee

Grind Size

Whole Bean:
For the freshest experience each time, grind just before brewing to release the full flavor and aroma. Perfect for coffee enthusiasts who enjoy customizing their grind size.

Ground (Standard):
Our standard grind is suitable for drip coffee makers and pour-over brewers. Medium grounds provide a balanced extraction for a smooth, well-rounded taste.

Ground for Espresso*:
Finely ground coffee specifically for your espresso machine. This carefully dialed-in grind delivers a rich and full-bodied shot with a perfect crema layer.

Ground for French Press*:
A coarser grind ideal for French Press brewing. This allows for a full-bodied, bold, and flavorful cup without the risk of over-extraction.


*Why do we charge $2 for Espresso and French Press?

We're aware there's a spectrum of approaches by coffee companies—some offer a range of grind options at no cost and some don't offer the option at all. At Tinycup, our priority is to deliver a restful coffee experience tailored to your specific preferences.

We view the Espresso and French Press grinds as a customization that requires extra care and precision to ensure optimal extraction for these unique brewing methods.

It would seem easier to customize an order for a roaster dedicated to small-batch roasting. In our current stage of growth, processing a custom grind order involves some additional steps to separate a single order of beans from their batch and adjust our grinding process for them accordingly.

Still, this customization (though it may be a little less efficient) demonstrates our commitment to providing you with a coffee that matches your preferences and exceeds your expectations!

That said, the extra charge is a reflection of our pride in offering this level of personalization, attention to detail, and the care we put into each and every order.

Brewing & Serving

Care & Reuse

For peak freshness, the best way to keep ground coffee or whole beans fresh is to store it in an airtight container. Even better, away from light, heat and moisture …like on a pantry shelf.

Oh! And that cute little burlap sack your coffee arrived in is so worth keeping, repurposing, re-gifting or upcycling ♻️. Keep it green!

our tinycup is a 6 oz. cup of coffee

Why, you ask? Well, in American coffee culture, serving sizes often assume 8 oz. equals "one cup" of coffee. But we like the more universal standard for coffee, which is 6 oz. mug-served coffee. The reasons are simple but important...

  • (1) Mindful Consumption

    The 6 oz. standard promotes thoughtful, more intentional moments of coffee savoring.

  • (2) Ideal Strength & Flavor

    Smaller servings maintain a balance of coffee strength and richer flavor without dilution.

  • (3) Consistent Experience

    Adhering to the 6 oz. standard makes for a more consistent experience with each cup you make.

  • (4) Enhanced Aroma

    Smaller quantities help to preserve the aromatic qualities of the coffee for longer.

Amazing blend!

Perfect for espresso

I tried the origin roast through the espresso machine, it was really good. Very fresh, smells wonderful, and the taste is full bodied and really, really good. Highly recommend if you are an espresso lover. Can’t wait to try some of the other flavors.

A coffee kind of a person is me!

I've tasted many coffee brands, but tiny cup coffee is different. Really fantastic fragrance with amazing aroma makes it much more inviting 😀 😊

Origin coffee beans

The coffee was great. I purchased the origin roast beans. Had a nice strong taste to it, and it was a great morning drink with the right amount of caffeine to get you ready for the day.
