In true Grounded Coffee fashion, we've housed an 1940's roaster in a unused grain store deep in the Dorset countryside.
'Roastmary' was put out of work when computerised high tech roasters came about, although there was no need as she works fantastically and is a fine example of true coffee roasting.
Going back to the basics means for us roasting is a real craft, we have to use all our senses to ensure each batch profile is consistent, it is something that we have worked really hard to perfect.
It's a labour intensive job but we love every minute of it and it makes it all the more satisfying when you sit down to enjoy your own brew!
We carefully select our beans and alternate our blends throughout the year, this helps us use seasonal beans as well as exploring different taste notes from chocolatey and nutty in the winter to more fruity and tangy in the summer months.
We also have a range of single origin which we change every so often, depending on if we get any special requests or what we fancy trying.
There are so many coffees to try… we like to keep things fresh and exciting!
