What is 3 Generation Coffee?

For the first time, the concept of 3 Generation Coffee is claimed by Trish Rothgeb, the founder of the Wrecking Ball Coffee Roasters coffee chain. We can summarize the 3rd generation coffee beans as coffee beans that graze the core coffee and present it to coffee lovers with different brewing/presentation methods.
