1. Once you make your coffee selection, Blue Ridge Coffee Crafters weighs out and inspects your green beans for consistency and quality.
2. Then we pour your beans into the coffee roaster.
3. We custom roast your coffee order to your preferred roasting preference. Roasting 1/2 lb to 6 lbs of beans at any one roast to more than a few hundred pounds each day.. As a true small custom hand craft batch micro roaster. we can ensure a unique specialized custom roast just for you up to 200 lbs plus per day.
4. Your beans are suspended in perpetual motion in the roasting chamber allowing the chaff (covering around the bean) to be separated via our filtering collection system. This separates the chaff from the beans during our roasting process. This chaff is a paper thin membrane that burns easily and causes an additional bitter or burned taste to your coffee.
We use the most cost effective method of S & H with 2nd Day Priority from the USPS.
We place your beans in the fluid bed roasting chamber where your beans are suspended in the air in a perpetual motion ensuring a clean, even roast equally to all of your beans.

Blue Ridge Coffee Crafters offers a wider roasting range. Most roasters medium roast and full city roasts are the same. We are different since we discovered that by roasting at the opposite ends of the spectrum of medium we can offer a greater flavor distinction. Thus our ability to CUSTOM ROAST for each of you, our customers.
Thank You for allowing us to offer you the best fresh roasted coffees!
Now we weigh out your coffee bean order. We use a pouch bag which has an internal reseal strip to keep the air out and then heat sealed to ensure freshness. Our bags have a gusset valve which allows CO2 to escape. You should squeeze the extra air out of the bag after you reseal it, guaranteeing you the freshest coffee consistently.
