Does it really take 2 computers to roast coffee? Probably not - but we find that it gives us far more control over the roasting process. The roasts that we do for Daylight Mind for our espresso product absolutely needs this level of control. The Featured Farm Program that we run with Daylight Mind also needs the ability to fine tune each and every farm we roast for. We have the ability to save all roast profiles and this has been a real advantage for our Contract Roasting Program. Farms that we roast for have their roast profiles saved for easy reference.

Does it really take an absolute state-of-the-art artisanal roaster
(a Giesen 6W) to roast coffee? Probably not - but much of what we do here would be impossible without the superior control that this drum roaster affords us. This roaster has 2 drums - one inside of the other. The outer drum is cast iron. It takes up and releases heat quickly. The inner drum is soft steel like most other drum roasters. The cast iron drum adds a third kind of heat to the roasting process - radiant heat. Along with conductive and convective heat, radiant heat allows us to get more out of our roasts earlier - and they are the most even we have seen with any roaster.

Did we really have to build a commercial quality Roastery overlooking our award winning coffee fields? Probably not, but here at Kona View Coffee we really love quality and especially the view. Come up and visit us!
