Drum Roasting

As a coffee roaster for specialties such as Single Origin and high-quality coffee blends, we want to give our coffee beans the best possible roast. For us, drum roasting only fulfills the high demands that we place on care and flavors. That is why our coffee is roasted in the drum at up to 220 degrees. This has other advantages for the beans.

TRADITIONAL RATHER THAN INDUSTRIAL ROASTING

Drum roasting is the traditional method of roasting many coffee beans at once. In the history of coffee, people roasted the valuable beans in pans, on hot stone or in ovens. However, drum roasting is the only type of roasting that, on the one hand, allows us to keep an eye on the raw beans. On the other hand, we can determine the temperature exactly to the degree and thus avoid undesirable roasted aromas.

THE MAILLARD REACTION

When we read the green coffee and put it in the drum, it changes color with increasing temperature. Experts call the process the Maillard reaction. The green bean first turns yellow, then light brown. When the temperature reaches around 220 degrees, the bean breaks because all the liquid has evaporated. After that, by the way, the coffee only develops strong roasted aromas as needed for espresso. This process releases a lot of natural chemicals that determine smell, taste and appearance.

SLOW DRUM ROASTING

When it comes to drum roasting, our coffee roasters have the upper hand. On the one hand we always see the coffee beans and on the other hand we can intervene at any time by turning. The slow heating makes the product more expensive, but also more pleasant in its aroma. After all, we not only want to be able to offer you espresso, but also mild, fruity coffee. The roasting of the drum takes up to half an hour, even if only one crack is wanted. Industrial roasting processes the beans in 90 seconds. They are heated to over 300 degrees, break open immediately, burn easily and go dark. The industrial producer then grind them finely so that at least this aroma can be released. In short: This type of quick coffee roasting without real quality control does not do justice to our exquisite varieties.
