Frequently Asked Questions
From where do you source your coffee?
What type of coffee beans do you roast?
Arabica beans. Arabica beans are not as harsh tasting as Robusta beans (grown for caffeine). Arabica beans will vary in availability due to weather, political climate, etc.
How are the coffee beans roasted?
We air roast coffee with a Sivetz Fluid Bed Roaster. Coffee roasting is the “art of unlocking the quality and flavor within each coffee bean.” There are two basic methods for roasting coffee beans: Drum Roasting and Fluid Bed. Fluid bed roasted coffee has a cleaner and brighter flavor and contains less contaminants than the traditionally drum roasted coffee. Fluid bed roasting is a far superior form of roasting. Because of the fluid motion formed by the hot air being pumped in, the beans rotate up and down and around in the air flow in the roasting chamber constantly, so that each bean is roasted to exactly the same degree. Drum roasters retain the unwanted by-products of chaff, which is roasted along with the beans. The smoke produced from the drum can give the beans a burnt after-taste, especially when making a dark roast coffee.
