Flames roasted coffee on our 1960's whitmee roaster

Full Bodied Flavour

Our Roastery

Our late 1950s 76kg Whitmee ‘Open flame’ roaster is a legacy of Great British Engineering. The cast iron bodied roaster features a perforated drum with the gas flame apertures in the Centre of the drum rather than underneath it, therefore a truly direct flame.

Full Bodied Flavour

We believe roasting is a unique skill that is easy to pick up, but takes years to master. Thankfully we've been roasting for years.

‘Through the flame’ drum roasting gives even heat transfer through the bean, producing a more full bodied, flavourful coffee taste and enhances aroma.

Drum roasted coffees have a much richer and fuller mouth feel.

Packing & Labelling

Within our roastery we have specially designed packaging lines and thermal printers. Many customers choose Tropic branded coffee for our reputation and experience within coffee roasting, however we also create private label coffee for lifestyle brands, restaurants and large wholesalers.
