Learn Wood Roasting

Our unique wood-fire process enhances the aroma and flavours from cup to cup

Any barista will say, the perfect coffee starts with the beans. That is why we have embarked on our journey to create something truly unique and satisfying for our customers. Our wood-fired roasting process is unparalleled, providing customers with a unique, full flavoured and quality roasted coffee using a traditional artisan technique over wood. We are the only 100% artisan wood powered roaster in Australia. Our roasting process gives the green coffee beans their distinct taste, aroma and colour.

We only use the highest quality timber – Australian iron bark, because it produces more heat and brings out the natural flavour of the beans. We are conscious of the environment and we source local hardwood from sustainably managed forests. We control the natural moisture in the timber by airing it out in our warehouse for two months, thereby using dry wood because it burns hotter and cleaner and overall is better for the environment.

Not only is our roasting method different to other coffee roasters who commonly use gas, our 60kg Wood Roaster is custom built out of Italy (the only one in the world). We combine old school techniques with the latest data interpreting technology. Our Wood Roaster is fully computerised and the heat is controlled – we guarantee the perfect roast by data logging every roast we do.

Our state of the art roasting process uses 100% hot air rather than direct heat from a gas flame, meaning the beans are more evenly roasted. This method produces a consistent roast, resulting in cleaner, sweeter, full bodied tasting coffee.

You might also be thinking that similar to a wood-fired oven or grill, the smoke imparts a distinct flavour to the beans. This is the case, however, the change in flavour characteristics are very subtle, providing more of a particular imprint rather than an altered profile.

At The Wood Roaster are committed to providing you with the freshest and highest quality wood roasted coffee, which enhances the taste and aroma of the coffee for you and your customers to enjoy.
