Nowadays, the Brocéliande Torrefaction proposes a selection of different coffees dedicated to all kinds of tastes, convinced by the responsible consumption, while still discovering the taste of real homemade recipes. For your information, their coffees are roasted according to an artisanal and traditional method, called “slow method”, where the beans are slowly roasted in a drum for a period of 24 to 26 minutes, by raising the temperature to 220 ° C.
This traditional process guarantees a regular and deep maturation. Thus, the initial pale green beans placed in the roaster, then stand out with a more generous shape and a greedy caramel color. During this operation, the master roaster takes an optimal care of those grains.
Historically, the Brocéliande Torrefaction has been selecting raw coffees from the more equatorial regions of the Blue Planet. Like with wine, the family team carefully chooses the best coffee vintages, in order to always bring the best flavors, combining real harmonious tasting (organic or not) and escaping experience (thanks to many origins).
