The roasting steps.
OUR PREPARATION PROCESS, FROM FRUIT ON THE TREE TO YOUR FAVORITE CUP. TRANSPARENCY AND KNOW-HOW; THIS IS WHAT WE WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU.
Step 1 - The search for the perfect grain
The search for the perfect grain. For good coffee, you need good beans.
For exceptional coffee, we look for the best beans and create a balanced blend that will appeal to fans of locally roasted coffee.
We talk to the producers, the real humans behind the product who use methods that are respectful of the environment and workers.
Step 2 - Routing
The green grain is sent by boat, previously dried in its place of origin.
Our team will collect it at the drop-off point and the adventure begins.
The product will be weighed, analyzed then prepared for cooking in the roaster.
Step 3 - Roasting (the fun begins!)
Cooking of the grains begins. This is a key step in cooking the coffee beans that are still green and tasteless, until they obtain a beautiful dark brown color.
Roasting is a chemical process that generates different significant reactions. for the grain.
We start with a green grain, then yellowing occurs: the grain then becomes more yellowish and the aromas begin to emerge.
Step 4 - The first crackle (our favorite moment!)
The grain becomes drier, browner and we hear a very satisfying little crack. Another key moment in roasting.
This means that most of the moisture has come out of the bean.
Coffee could be enjoyed at this time of roasting, but at Café Foncé we prefer heat it up to a higher temperature. We love a dark roast.
Step 5 - 223˚C
The magic number that makes our coffee strong, aromatic and of course dark.
There are a thousand and one ways to roast coffee.
Longer, shorter cooking; everything can affect the final taste and it is the know-how of our Master Roasters that makes all the difference.
Step 6 - The FINAL
Then? The coffee will be cooled and then mixed according to our exclusive recipe that knows how to get the best out of each of the beans that we have imported. All you have to do is order from our online store and taste!
