The coffees used for Julius Meinl THE ORIGINALS are mostly roasted in Probat 5kg batch roasters. To achieve the best results, our roasting masters examine each batch carefully. They test and calibrate with multiple roasting profiles, using all their senses, before finally determining the ideal profile. Although advanced technology helps to record the profiles precisely, we still believe each batch should receive care at the personal level because various elements bring nuances to the taste, such as the weather on the day of roasting, the size of the batch and the status of the roaster.
Thus, the roasting master stays by that roaster throughout the day, pulling out a tiny sample of beans, examining them closely… Smelling them deeply … putting them back, and repeating. This process is performed again and again over the course of hours, almost hundreds of times a day, just as it has been done daily for years. Each pack of Julius Meinl THE ORIGINALS is roasted with the utmost care by our roasting master, who has signed this pack to personally certify its quality.
