Unlike other local enterprises, our company stands out for the treatment of the product, by adopting production elements voted to enhance the quality regardless the production economy:
- Roasting time of 18 minutes
The procedure, slower and therefore more expensive in terms of energy consumed, is carried out by switching off the second flame when 2/3 of the roasting is reached. The slower process guarantees the preservation of all the aromas and a more uniform roasting.
By disabling the fume recycling, we do avoid the deposition of unpleasant odors and unpleasant flavours on the beans. In fact, the roasting fumes contain waste and harmful substances, such as cellulose -not digestible-, which we prefer to convey in the exhaust chimney. This measure increases the quality of the finished product but, at the same time, increases the production costs, not allowing the recirculation of the heat.
We do cool our roasted beans only by fresh air, whereas the majority of the roasters do prefer to use water cooling. The advantage of water cooling system is evident: to increase the weight of the beans -by water absorption – of about 5%, with additional profit. By air cooling, our roasted beans will always get completely dry and will not be exposed to mold, for a product always fresh and aromatic.
Thanks to these characteristics, our premium blends are highly appreciated both in Italy and abroad. The quality of our products have enabled a rapid development in more than 40 countries, bringing export to currently have a predominant role.
