Our process

At The Village Coffee Roastery we pride ourselves on the coffee we provide to our customers.

We begin our process by selecting the finest Arabica beans, to produce the finest cup of coffee. To ensure that our customers receive the freshest and most flavorful coffee we roast multiple times a week. We utilize a Sasa Samiac roaster, imported from France, with the capability of producing 20 pounds per roast.

Our method is a patented scientific process utilized by only 12 roasters in the world, ensuring that we reproduce the flavor our customers demand every time.

Our passion and respect for the bean and its origin will be known with every sip.
