The Kaffeeklatsch is a true “hand crafted” roaster of coffees. Coffee roasting is an art as well as a science and requires years of experience. We do not rely on automation to determine optimum roast spectrums. Our master roaster, Grant Heath, who has been roasting specialty coffee for over 36 years, oversees all roasting and has trained a journeyman to assist him. Coffee is a volatile, natural good product. Each variety of coffee has its ideal roasting time and temperature. However, different batches can be unpredictable with external temperature, relative humidity and many other factors contributing to how a particular roast behaves. Only a master roaster like Grant can make the subtle adjustments required during the roasting process. Roasting small batches of coffee on the premises allows the Kaffeeklatsch absolute control over bean quality and freshness.
