Here’s something you may not know…every batch of beans that we roast goes through the rather laborious and old fashioned process of winnowing. All done by my fair hand, it started out years back as we have a wonderful natural wind tunnel effect past the roaster door.
Early on, it was fairly straightforward, moving on to become a permanent habit that allowed me to spot any nasties in the green coffee as well as clean off some of the dust. It’s also rather good exercise given that we can roast over 300kg on some days!
Here to stay, a little habit that perhaps makes our beans a little different from the rest..
