What is a Micro-Roaster? The Benefits of Locally Brewed Coffee

Do you know what a micro-roaster is? A micro-roaster is a small business that roasts coffee beans in small batches. This means the coffee is roasted fresh and there is a high level of attention paid to the quality of each batch. There are many benefits of buying your coffee from a micro-roaster, including freshness, variety, and support for local businesses. In this blog post, we will discuss the benefits of micro-roasting and why it is becoming so popular!

Micro roasting is the process of roasting coffee beans on a small scale. This method of roasting coffee beans allows for greater attention to detail and more ability to dial in a roast as the roaster sees fit. Additionally, micro-roasted coffees tend to be fresher and more flavourful than mass-produced coffees. The traditional supply chain model that brings coffee to your big box grocery store can sometimes start with that coffee being roasted close to a year before it ends up in your cart. Buying coffee from independent micro-roasters guarantees that you're buying fresh coffee that was likely roasted just a short time before you bought it. The difference is immense. If you're looking for an unforgettable cup of coffee, micro-roasted coffees are definitely worth seeking out.

When it comes to coffee, there is a huge variety of flavours to choose from. From rich and full-bodied to light and crisp, there is a coffee flavour to suit every taste. In addition to flavour, coffee also has a unique aroma and texture. The aromatic oils in coffee beans give the drink its distinctive smell, while the rich, creamy texture is thanks to the high content of soluble solids. Together, these factors make up the flavour of coffee, and it is this flavour that has made it one of the most popular drinks in the world.

Micro-roasting is becoming increasingly popular as people learn about the benefits of fresh, locally roasted coffee. If you are looking for the best tasting coffee, be sure to look for a micro-roaster near you! Not only will you enjoy a great cup of coffee, but you'll also be supporting local businesses.
