Ever wondered how our Head Roastmaster Chris enjoys his coffee throughout the day? Wonder no more!
Join us for our first installment of a (coffee) day in the life of Roastmaster Chris and join him as he makes his way through the day, one cup of coffee at a time!
First things first, it’s important to always brew your coffee with fresh coffee. Roastmaster Chris prefers whole bean, but regardless of your grind preference, it’s recommended to store your coffee in an airtight container. Airtight containers are light, easy to keep clean, and feature an airtight vacuum seal. The seal helps to remove to oxygen so it can’t accumulate inside and stale your coffee.
After ensuring that his coffee is fresh, Roastmaster Chris starts the day with a cup brewed using a French Press. He prefers the French Press, as he feels this is one of the best ways to enjoy coffee and experience the true flavor!
Not familiar with the French Press Method or looking for some new tips and tricks? Join Roastmaster Chris for a step by step tutorial!
Start with 2 oz. of coarse ground coffee.
You can adjust ounces to your taste preferences.
Coarse ground is recommended, as finely ground coffee can get stuck in the filter or result in a more bitter tasting cup.
Put coffee into French Press.
Wet the grounds with hot water.
Water should be 200 degrees, never boiling. If you do not have an electric kettle, bring water to a boil then let sit for 2 minutes to reach 200 degrees.
Do not use all the water, just enough to develop a “crust”.
Let sit for 30 seconds.
Stir to break the crust and finish pouring the remaining water in a circular motion. Fill to bottom of the upper band.
Put the top on, but do not lower the plunger yet. Let it steep for 4 minutes.
You may adjust the time to your taste preferences
Plunge slowly with firm pressure.
If you get an air bubble, pull up to break the vacuum then resume plunging.
You may also notice some fine sediment at the bottom of your cup. This is NOT the same as grounds! In fact, Roastmaster Chris encourages drinking the sediment as it is a natural part of the coffee.
Stay tuned for Roastmaster Chris’s next installment of a (coffee) day in the life!

Another day, another cup of coffee! Ever wondered how our Head Roastmaster Chris enjoys his coffee throughout the day?
Join us for our fourth installment of a (coffee) day in the life of Roastmaster Chris and join him as he makes his way through the day, one cup of coffee at a time! Today, we’ll be joining Chris as he makes himself a cup of coffee using a Chemex.
It’s recommended to store your coffee in an airtight container, such as our Airscape® Coffee Storage Canister. This stainless steel canister will preserve your Joffrey’s artisan roasts by keeping air out to protect freshness and flavor.
After grinding down his coffee fresh, Roastmaster Chris enjoys making another cup of coffee using one of his other favorite brewing methods, the Chemex method.
Not familiar with the Chemex method or looking for some new tips and tricks? Join Roastmaster Chris for a step by step tutorial!
Start with about 1.5 ounces (can add more/less to taste) of your favorite freshly ground Joffrey’s coffee, filling the cone filter about 3/4 of the way up
Wet grounds by slowly pouring water over them, allowing the extraction process to begin and the crust to form
Always use water that is no hotter than 200 degrees
Never use boiling water to brew coffee. Ideally, the water should be around 200 degrees (boiling water will usually reach this temperature after resting for two minutes).
Once a crust starts forming, pause and let it settle
Once the grounds have settled, slowly begin pouring the rest of the water over the grounds to slowly break the crust
Sit back, relax and enjoy your delicious Joffrey’s coffee!
Stay tuned for Roastmaster Chris’s next installment of a (coffee) day in the life!

Developed by our Head Roastmaster Chris De Mezzo in collaboration with Disney Chefs, the Riviera Resort Blend combines beans from Papua New Guinea, Costa Rica and Kenya, to create a sweet and smoky profile with a rich aroma. This specialty coffee was created for guests to enjoy at Disney’s Riviera Resort, a Disney Vacation Club Resort. Transport to the elegance and glamour of the Riviera Resort with every sip.
Now available for purchase on JOFFREYS.COM!
Q: What sparked the creation of this blend?
A: We were approached by Beverage Innovation Team at Disney and were asked to come up with a signature blend for the new resort.
Q: What inspired you when creating this blend?
A: We wanted to create a coffee that was unique and would make a statement – something you could only get at the Riviera Resort.
Q: What makes this blend special and different from others that Joffrey’s has created?
A: This is a beautiful coffee – dark roasted and featuring Indonesian, Costa Rican and African beans, some of my favorite coffee-producing regions. The coffee is unique, complex and multi-dimensional, with a robust smokiness and nice and smooth finish.
Q: What will Joffrey’s and Disney fans think of while enjoying this coffee?
A: While sitting at the resort drinking this coffee, guests will be able to look out at the property and savor a delicious cup of coffee. If enjoying away from the resort, guests can get the whole experience with each and every sip. I don’t like to brag, but this is something I’m really proud of – I think guests will enjoy!
