Just discovered NXT Roasters a couple weeks ago, and I’m pleased with their coffee so far, and their roaster is pretty cool too!
I’ve only tried their Brazilian Yellow Catuai beans – I prefer the medium roast of these beans, perhaps in future I’ll try some of their darker roasts.
I just picked up a couple more bags today, beans were roasted yesterday 🙂 I really like the bloom of the coffee when brewing, and the crema in the espresso shots is so rich and tasty.
Their roaster is very interesting, in that it recirculates the heated air, and through a special process, the air is cleaned before being exhausted. It has operated indoors without any chimney, and no burnt smell typical of other roasters I’ve seen, and is very efficient, using far less energy than conventional roasters. There’s some pretty detailed information on their roasting profiles for the different beans they use, and more information on the roaster itself in the NXT Roasters Blog.
