Panther Coffee is a Miami-based specialty coffee roaster, retailer and wholesaler specializing in the small-batch roasting of coffee beans and the preparation of coffee beverages. With coffees meticulously selected, prepared and presented by owners Joel Pollock and Leticia Ramos Pollock, a husband-wife team with a combined 26 years of coffee experience, Panther Coffee is poised to be at the forefront of the rapidly transforming specialty coffee industry in the United States and beyond.
Panther Coffee’s quality begins with the selection of green coffee beans. The professional technique used in this process is known as “cupping,” in which Joel and Leticia have much experience. Both Joel and Leticia benefit from longstanding personal and professional relationships with coffee producers throughout the world, friends and colleagues possessing generations of knowledge and passion and who produce some of the finest lots of coffee available anywhere.
After selection of the coffees, Joel uses his 20 years of experience to roast them, achieving correct development and caramelization of the sugars present within the coffee bean, without the conversion of these precious caramelized sugars into carbon, which can result in an ashy or smoky taste. Great care will be taken to expose the magnificent natural sweetness and the most subtle flavor nuances often lost in the roasting process.
The Panther Coffee barista staff, extensively and continuously trained by Leticia, showcases these wonderful coffees and the people behind them.
