SHaBean Coffee Roastery is growing and we have outgrown our original roaster. This spring (2018) SHaBean acquired the Artisan 9 coffee roaster from Coffee Crafters located in the American north west where the specialty coffee industry tends to be located. The Artisan 9 is a state of the art fluid bed roaster, roasting green beans in a column of hot air. The process is clean, producing chaff free evenly roasted coffee beans. Our roasting capacity is now increased at least by a factor of four. We are in control of more variables and are doing great roasts. Of course we are still roasting only high end single source beans.
