Before coffee arrives in your cup, green coffee beans will meet a coffee roaster and undergo a roasting process, in some way, shape or form. Coffee roasters come in all shapes and sizes too. From an independent small scale to large industrial operations, resulting in varying methods and results. 

Our coffee roasting facility, alongside our professional expertise, allows us to streamline large quantities of coffee through our roastery.

The Roasting Process

The complexities of being a coffee roaster can be challenging. There are many stages and aspects to consider throughout the coffee roasting process. What's more is that as coffee popularity heightens, so does the knowledge and demand for more speciality coffees. As a result, we have to remain adaptable, accommodating and produce quality coffee at all times.

The Art of Roasting

To assist in maintaining such high standards, our coffee roastery is equipped with the best coffee roasting equipment and also has the added luxury of a contingency facility to maintain production in the event of any unforeseen circumstances. 

We use a traditional drum roaster (Brambati) but not in a traditional way. The coffee is roasted using a combination of conductive (Drum) and convective (Air) heat transfer. This offers maximum control over the roast profile and results in a more even roast and a fully developed flavour.

Depending on the sector you're in, we can provide a range of roasts including blends, single origin and speciality coffees.

Roasting, in itself, is an age-old technique. Probably derived by our ancestors accidentally dropping something onto a fire and rescuing it, only to discover it made it better. View full blog

Why are coffee beans roasted?

In short, coffee beans are roasted so that they become coffee as we know it. Without the roasting process they are merely but a bean. Granted, that bean does possess all those unique qualities we associate with coffee, but the flavour is non-existent until it is roasted. View full blog
