Not only are our beans slow roasted at high altitude, we make sure they cool evenly and slowly. Ken, our Roaster, makes sure to check each and every batch, as they are finished in our classic, old school roasters. This ensures that your Boyer’s cup of Joe is the best money can buy!
Made in 1944
We use our classic Burns Thermalo roaster for most of our regular and decaffeinated blends. This classic roaster was manufactured in 1944, the same year that American forces liberated Western Europe, and it is still being used to roast our Legendary Classics to this day. In others words, this beauty was built when the US made things better than anyone else in the world.
For nearly fifty years, it has helped us to slow roast our superior beans creating the flavors Boyer’s customers love. As Mark likes to say about the Thermalo, “That baby just purrs and brings out a product that is second to none.”
Born in 1915. Still Going Strong.
Our Burns Jubilee roaster was built in 1915, in the middle of the First World War. It is the roaster which we use exclusively for our Old Schoolhouse Vintage Roasts. These are single origin beans, meaning that these unique beans come from a single estate in a specific region.
Beans this special require an ancient roasting vessel that can capture their essence. We’ve owned and operated ‘Old Bessie’ for nearly 50 years and she’s still going strong producing our slow roasted 100% Arabica coffees.
The Green Bean Room
If you ask Mark what makes for a great cup of coffee, he will tell you, “It’s all about the beans and not all beans are created equal.” This means Mark and our owners spend a great deal of time insuring we source excellent coffees from the best growers around the World.
This is the part of the process where the men are separated from the boys. It’s serious business and where our experienced roaster will make final determination if the roast is good enough to be called Boyer’s. Cupping happens all the time at Boyer’s, but only in the mornings before Mark and Ken’s palates (and noses) have yet to be influenced by the glorious smells inside the Boyer’s warehouse.
