Madrona Coffee is dedicated to consistently roasting amazing espresso. No automation is used in the roasting process. This ensures a highly skilled human is closely monitoring the process thoughout the roast. Chefs would never leave the pan on the stove unattended and to roast the coffee to its full potential neither would Madrona Coffee. We stick with "old School" roasting school of thought for our blends. That being said we understand the many ways coffee can be roasted and will roast according to customer preference with a 20 pound minimum order.
