ABOUT ROASTING

made in the nwt
Javaroma proudly roasts Coffee in Yellowknife, NWT!

Our roasting platform is built around consistency, proper development, and the highest quality equipment. Thought and attention is given to every step of our roasting and production. The quality is already present in the green coffee, but proper roasting is vital to unlocking the bean's full potential.

WHAT SETS JAVAROMA ROASTING APART?

ROASTING CONSISTENCY

Consistency is essential to quality. If consistency varies from batch to batch, the quality of the coffee will not be great. That is why consistency is always a priority at Javaroma. Roasting can be very susceptible to heat energy variations and that will affect aroma development. From the way we set up our roasting profiles, to the ways we customize our equipment, to our finely tuned quality control program, we are seeking the consistency that makes outstanding coffee quality possible.

ROASTING DEVELOPMENT

Javaroma focuses on development rather than color. It's easy to talk about whether the outside of a bean is light or dark without paying attention to what's going on inside the bean. What matters to us is that each bean is properly developed from the inside out. We don't want our coffee to be like a freshly baked loaf of bread that is golden brown on the outside but still doughy on the inside. Instead, we want a coffee that is properly developed all the way through. When we roast, our goal is to unlock the very best that individual coffee has to offer, so you taste the unique, exciting, single origin coffee, not the roast. This means that, due to variations in size, weight, density, moisture content, moisture activity, and environment, each specific lot of coffee has its own roasting profile.

We roast two development profiles, one is for ESPRESSO and the other is for DRIP. Espresso is a unique brewing method that produces a concentrate and therefore needs a development that tones down the acidity, allowing the full profile and balance of our coffees to shine. We use the term DRIP to categorize all other brewing methods that produce a dilution. This profile is great for anything from a home coffee pot to an aero press.

ROASTING EQUIPMENT

We chose to roast coffee on drum machines. Javaroma uses drum machines because they hold heat energy well and provide the balance between convective, conductive, and radiant heat that we desire. Every machine we roast on gets key aftermarket modifications that allow us to maximize and calibrate each roaster to our desired settings. We perform these modifications in house, along with our own tech work and maintenance.

HOSPITALITY

Inviting our customers ­ who quickly become friends ­ to try our coffees, hangout in our 4 coffee shops, and laugh with our baristas is what brings us the greatest joy! Despite our years of collective experience, we know there's always room to learn and improve, and we would like to invite you to learn with us, to grow with us, and to experience the joy that comes from a great cup of coffee!
