At Caravan Coffee Roasters they believe in challenging and raising the standards and expectations of the UK specialty coffee scene.
Their aim is to ultimately provide coffee lovers with a superior product in their cup.
They source the world’s best beans and roast them to specific and consistent profiles so to ensure each coffee’s individual characteristics are fully nurtured.
The Ethics Behind Caravan Coffee Roasters
The team at Caravan Coffee Roasters invests a lot of time into the process of sourcing.
They are always working on how they approach green coffee. They believe that with sustainable coffee, roasters need to be present and accessible to the producers.
They do this by travelling to origin monthly, (to certain producers at least 4 times a year); continually fostering and nurturing the relationships that they have worked hard to establish.
By sharing information and collaborating together, they help to add value to the whole process and this ultimately means they are paying the producer more for a better quality product.
They only work with coffee importers who share their same values and methodology and who have extensive relationships with the coffee producers of the coffee that they buy.
What You Will Find Inside
As coffee roasters, they are responsible for translating a coffees unique taste and heritage.
Caravan Coffee Roasters team uses their hard-earned expertise to achieve this, founded on the framework of education and trial and error.
Their number one goal is to showcase the care, craft and hard work of the coffee’s producer; whether this is an individual farmer, a washing station or a cooperative; they are the intrinsic link in the sensory chain.
They use Probat roasters and cropster roasting technology to carefully monitor the roast curve, development time and total roast time.
By controlling these factors and understanding the raw material they can achieve varying degrees of flavour and profiles to bring out the best characteristics of every coffee that is roasted in their establishment.
By the end of a roasting week, after every batch has been quality tested, the green beans that began their journey in some of the most beautiful places on earth have been roasted with care and attention and will make their way to coffee drinkers throughout the UK and the rest of the world.
Roasting can be long hours of tough monotonous work, but the team at Caravan Coffee Roasters will never complain because they truly love what they do!
