Our Green Coffee and Roasting Program
Launching our roastery was a pivotal moment for Watch House and has given us the opportunity to consider our impact and commitment to coffee. It isn’t something we take lightly. We are very excited to carve out a path whereby customers can enjoy a range of coffees that provide both comfort and intrigue, whilst working with traders that share our commitment to the people and environments at every stage from seed to cup. For us it isn’t simply a question of selling ‘good coffee’. It is about taking our customers on a journey of discovery and using our position to support organisations and traders making an impact socially, economically and environmentally across the Coffee Belt.
Our roasting programme is where we really get creative. Our aim is to roast a diverse offering for our customers, showcasing the exceptional work of coffee producers across the world. As we are roasting we carefully track how the coffee is reacting, manipulating gas and airflow to ensure we develop it at a considered optimal speed and temperature for that specific coffee. This ‘roast profile’ is determined by our initial knowledge of the green coffee, which we track alongside empirical evidence of how coffees from that particular region have behaved previously. The ultimate aim? A cup that highlights the provenance and quality of each coffee we select.
