When Blue Tokai started roasting in 2013, they had a small 1 kg machine that had them roasting for twelve to fourteen hours straight on most nights because of how small it was. Though they have grown, both, the size of the roasters and the team, they continue to spend as much time, energy and resources on constantly pushing their roasting quality forward.

They are consistently researching, testing and implementing best practices throughout their business to raise the bar. Cupping hundreds of green bean samples every harvest before making their final selections is standard procedure at Blue Tokai Coffee Roasters. Holding advanced sensory trainings for junior roasters, and experimenting with processing at the farm level are just some of the ways that their highly skilled team is constantly evolving.

Although Blue Tokai have a dedicated sourcing team for green beans and have invested in establishing quality roasting parameters, they know that a lot more steps still have to fall into place to brew a good cup. This is why they have worked closely with a Q Grade certified Director of Coffee to create industry leading procedures such as cupping every single batch that is roasted to ensure consistent quality.
