Fluid Bed Roasting
Crushin Coffee uses a 12lb fluid bed roaster to roast all of its coffee. Fluid bed roasting can also be referred to as air roasting. For multiple reasons we feel like this is the best method for roasting coffee and once you have a taste of our coffee, we think you will have the same opinion. To explain a little more, modern fluid bed roasting equipment uses a stream of high velocity hot air to levitate the coffee beans and suspend them momentarily in a bath of hot air, allowing uniform heating of the individual beans. As the coffee beans are levitated in the hot air stream, they roll and tumble in the super heated air, which causes unwanted by-products of the roast (burnt chaff, under size or broken beans, etc) to be expelled by the convective/lifting action of the hot air. This process offers a consistent coffee batch after batch.
Our roasting philosophy tends to be a little different than many other companies. We feel like if done right, drinking your morning coffee can not only be the pep you need to start your day, but it can also be a great experience. Coffee so good that it makes you want to go to bed so the morning will come quicker! We like to source coffee from around the world. As you try different origins and different processing methods of those origins, you will see that there is no such thing as a basic cup of coffee. Every coffee bean touches up to 14 pairs of hands in the process from planting the coffee tree until you grab that cup and drink it. We appreciate this coffee journey. We strive to learn something about each coffee we buy and to explore the vast variety of amazing coffees out there. Our coffees will consistently change through the year as we strive to always bring you the best cup of coffee imaginable!
