Esselon utilizes a vintage 1969 Gothot, 23 kilogram (50 lbs) natural gas fired drum roaster. The roaster has been completely refurbished, and is the workhorse that produces the outstanding coffees that Esselon offers. Our roaster is in operation every Monday and Thursday roasting beans for use in the café, retail sales and online order shipments.
Our buyers are constantly sampling new green coffee arrivals to select the best overall coffee from each region and /or producer/supplier so we can offer esselon customers the best overall cup of coffee and coffee based beverages. Starting with the finest green coffee beans we can locate, painstakingly roasting in small batches and cupping each roast to ensure we sell finest coffee available.
