The Artisan 6M: Complete Roasting & Bean Cooling System
[by Coffee Crafters in Liberty Lake, WA]
The Artisan 6M roaster provides us the ability to craft especially vibrant and specific taste profiles. The chaff is removed through a vacuum during roasting, which prevents it from burning in the batch. This yields incredibly crisp and unique flavor profiles, and allows the characteristics of the beans to shine through.
Each new roast profile requires a couple batches of experimentation to find the perfect harmony of heat and air to bring the beans to perfection. After a few practice runs and a lot of note-taking, we conclude a specific "recipe" for each roast to ensure consistent results.
We source our green beans through Intercontinental Trading Company (follow link at the bottom of page for more info), and currently offer four different beans at this time: Organic Peru, Organic Guatemalan, Organic Chiapas (Mexico), and Swiss-Water pressed Ethiopian Decaf.
PSA TO OUR HONDURAS FANS: Our Organic dark-roasted Honduras is temporarily unavailable due to coffee crop fluctuations, and will return in the fall! In the meantime, please give our Organic Peru a try! It is serving as a lovely substitute until we welcome Honduras back to our menu.
