Coffee Equipment and Process
Although Liquid Coffee was created as a typically Australian coffee, expert European techniques proved to be the only way to deliver the high quality products our Chief Roaster Antonio Curulli sought after. Using world renown Toper boutique machines, a roasting machine so advanced that it had to be imported directly from Europe, enabling us to tailor make different coffee blends for the discerning coffee drinker.
The Toper uses a continual flow of hot air to surround and roast the coffee beans, preventing scorching and providing a more evenly roasted bean.
A Rotating Drum
While being roasted, the movement of the coffee beans within a rotating drum encourages a much more evenly roasted bean and prevents the risk of burning when the beans are left to sit still using a direct heating method.
Every part of the Toper that comes into contact with the beans is made of stainless steel, including the drum. Stainless steel heats quickly and ensures cleanliness and quality, which is paramount when creating a premium locally roasted consumer product.
Each variety of bean has different roasting requirements. The Toper allows the roaster to program and control the heat and temperature, the drum rotation, the air circulation, the roasting air flow, the roasting time and the cooling time. Such control results in perfectly roasted coffee beans every time.
The End Result is an Amazing Coffee
Using a machine like the Toper ensures that the roasting requirements of each bean variety can be ideally catered for. The beans are nurtured and cared for individually. It is only once the beans are completely cooled that they are blended together to create that unique Liquid Estate Coffee experience.
