Infrared roasting is the state of the art roasting process that ensures you a better cup of Joe every time. Rather than the conventional method of roasting beans next to an open flame, the beans are roasted and cooked evenly through out. This prevents the beans from getting burnt and producing a bitter taste.

The coffee beans are bought according to harvest zones and the wet/water season. We use Arabica Beans from the most reputable plantations with most strict regulations in the world. This ensures safety, quality, freshness, order accuracy and efficiency pertaining to natural, organic, and fair trade certifications.

Since this is a uniform process, the beans are consistent in flavor with no deviation from bag to bag. It will be the same great coffee taste you will grow to love.
