Roasted Coffee

Coffee beans that have just been picked and processed aren't the rich brown ovals you pour into your coffee grinder. Before they're ready to drink, fresh green coffee beans need to be roasted with even heat to draw out their flavour and - depending on the level of roast - add some smoky roasting flavour too.

Roasted Coffee

Coffee beans that have just been picked and processed aren't the rich brown ovals you pour into your coffee grinder. Before they're ready to drink, fresh green coffee beans need to be roasted with even heat to draw out their flavour and - depending on the level of roast - add some smoky roasting flavour too. So, next time you're brew up a hot cup of coffee, think about how the method the roaster has used has influenced how it tastes.


How do I know which roast to choose?

Coffee roasters usually produce three kinds of roast - light, medium or dark - and you'll see that called out on any bag of coffee you buy. Light roast retains more of the beans' natural characteristics and are golden in colour. Medium roast coffee beans take on a little of the flavour of the roast, and look darker and a little oily on the surface. Dark roast coffee is much smokier and full-bodied to taste and darker in colour, with a shiny oily appearance. So, how a coffee is roasted has a real impact on how it looks and tastes, but which you prefer is down to personal preference. Not sure which is best for your favourite brewing method? We're happy to share our tips to help you get a great cup of coffee every time.


Does the roasting process vary by coffee roaster?

Yes - different roasters use different methods, with some preferring to roast green coffee by hand and other using commercial roasting machinery in the coffee roasting process. We use a state of the art automated roasting drum in our in-house roastery to roast the quality coffee beans we source from growers around the world, to create consistently great coffee with every bean and batch we roast. We believe that as a roaster, we have a duty to enhance that natural taste of the coffee and use decades of experience to choose the right roast for every crop. Whether we're roasting single origin coffee or creating one of our house blends for a trade customer's shop or at-home coffee connoisseurs, how our speciality coffee roasts is integral to how the espresso or latte you brew up tastes. If we're grinding our coffees after they've been roast, we don't pack them as soon as we grind them. Roasters like us give their coffee time to rest before it's bagged, to let the flavours develop. We grind our coffees to work with all kinds of coffee making kit, from commercial espresso machines to French press and filter methods like V6o and Chemex.
