The Roastery is quite simply as the name implies, a coffee roastery, which will officially launch in 2017. We will be making use of the very best equipment available, such as the hand built Joper 15kg Roaster with roast profile software and the very first official WBC (World Barista Championship) coffee machine in South Africa, the Victoria Arduino VA388 Black Eagle Gravimetric. To compliment the coffee machine we will be using Mythos One Clima Pro grinders from Nuova Simonelli and the Mahlkonig EK43 made famous by Matt Perger at WBC finals in 2013. Direct to farm relationships have been established with some great coffee growers ensuring we can offer our customers something really special.
Second only to top end customer service is the store design and something very close to our hearts. Having travelled extensively to the East and South East Asia the design will be distinctly Asian, but never in any way themed. Asian design also approaches the senses in a humble way and it is important that this comes through in our design. A low slung single level long bar will be used to create an open and interactive space between the customer and the barista and will be a perfect place to experience our freshly roasted coffee. Put quite simply The Roastery will be a fusion of the best of Japanese aesthetics, featuring clean, functional design, the best coffee technology available and impeccable attention to detail.
The Roasteryalso holds the agencies for products such as the Alpha Dominche Steampunk, acaia Scales, Aillio Bullet R1 Roaster, the Trinity ONE speciality coffee brewer and PUSH tamps by Clockwork Espresso. All of these products are brand new to the South African market and will be distributed and supported via The Roastery. If you'd like to partner with us in stocking these great products we'd be interested in hearing from you.
