The Roasting Process

Roasting at Lincoln & York

An overview of the coffee roasting process here at Lincoln & York site, including a sneak peak at our contingency operation.

The Art of Roasting

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.
