What do you like about coffee?
There’s something deeply compelling and humanistic about seeing green beans arrive in a burlap sack from Ethiopia or Brazil, and then watching the magic happen using a mix of both traditional and modern gear & skills. It’s an affirmation of the value of craftsmanship, traditional knowledge, and centuries-old trade relationships. And it's just so good.

Loring Kestrel 35 Kg
Roaster

We like to think of this machine as a talented and generous artisan clad in stainless steel. Her skills and gifts are plenty; her personality is being revealed over time. She is a dependable workhorse who can take little green beans that have traveled the globe in burlap and transform them into something magical. Not bad for a machine that only uses 15% of the energy others do!
