Our Roaster: 12kg Air Motion
Reinventing the Coffee Roasting Industry with the latest cutting-edge Air-Roasting Technology; it is a first in the world, offering a highly sophisticated and interactive roasting experience. At Durham Coffee, we are the first in the UK to roast on a 12Kg AMR and we are excited to pioneer this new technology.
Air-Roasting allows continuous and first-hand interaction with your coffee beans during the entire roast process using sight, sound and smell to enhance your roasting experience. With a continuous stream of fresh hot air coming into the roast chamber, the Air-Roaster removes dust, chaff and smoke from the roast chamber ensuring a clean, pure and balanced roast. The end product has a very clean taste that is intensely aromatic, together with enhanced flavour notes; it produces an exceptional cup of coffee.
Speciality Coffee, Sustainably Sourced
Speciality coffee is quality graded from 0-100. Only coffee that is graded 80+ qualifies as Speciality Coffee, guaranteeing the best quality and excellent flavours for us consumers but also better prices and working relationships for Farmers.
All of our coffee is speciality coffee and sourced from a sustainable supply chain which can be traced back directly to the coffee farm. Our suppliers work in close partnership with the farmers to ensure highest quality, sustainability and fair prices. This leads to long-term relationships helping coffee farmers to build sustainable businesses, and us to roast and deliver the best coffee for your business.
