THE PROCESS

It all begins at sourcing the best green coffee beans we can get our hands on. Once we’re happy with the quality of the green bean we turn to our trusty Diedrich IR-12 Coffee roaster and start the process of getting the very best characteristics our of the Green Bean. This takes hours of sample roasting and cupping in order to get the potential out of the bean. Because every region and every farm has its own special characteristics we try our best to enhance this through the roasting process.
