You may have heard of “Third Wave” coffee culture… welcome to the Fourth wave. The Third Wave coffee movement emphasized coffee quality and precise bean measurement over generic grocery store coffee. However, that movement began over 20 years ago – and while the movement was important and brought us to where we are today, we’re moving on: The Fourth Wave: specialty flavored drinks.
