Never Bitter, Never Burnt
Fuller Flavor, Always Smooth™

The Art of Infrared Roasting

We know that great tasting coffee is only as good as the quality of beans that are used, the roasting method that is applied, and artisan skill that is invested.  We use the highest quality beans, AA Arabica, and we utilize infrared roasting rather than the conventional method of roasting.

We believe that to make the perfect cup of coffee there must be a balance and synergy between the science and art of roasting coffee. We choose to roast our coffee using infrared roasters because they not only allow us to maintain the quality, integrity and consistency of flavor throughout each batch we roast, but also allow us to closely monitor and actively interact with the process and embed our artisan sensibilities.

 

 

 

 

Roasting Technique

our Infrared Roasting Technique

While conventional roasting methods may offer a higher capacity, infrared roasting can scale to capacity and offer a quality tasting coffee without a bitter, burnt flavor.  Conventional roasters use flame-heated hot air or flame-heated drums to roast the coffee beans. The drums are heated to very high temperatures and then the coffee beans are dumped in, exposing them to the high temperatures often burning and unevenly roasting the beans resulting in an unpleasant bitter, burnt flavor.

Unlike conventional roasting, we air-vey each batch of coffee beans, release them  into a roasting drum where they are heated with infrared heat that gently and evenly raises the temperature of each bean to perfection. We then drop the coffee into a cooler, exposing it to ambient air and quench water to instantly stop the cooking process without raising the moisture and achieve the desired  caramelization (color specification) and roasting consistency.

Taste the Infrared Roasting Difference

  • No flame is ever applied, so our coffee is never burnt, never bitter, and always smooth.
  • We roast in small batches to draw out the richest flavor profiles.
  • Preserve the natural antioxidant value that is beneficial to our body’s immune system.
  • Produce lower acidic flavor allowing those with stomach sensitivities to also enjoy our coffee.
