In 2004, we began roasting Moja Coffee on our beloved Probat roaster. Since then, we have roasted over 1 million pounds of coffee, 12 kilos at a time, every day. The demand for our coffee has grown, so it was time to expand. We did our research and eventually decided to get a Joper roaster.
Our new Joper roaster was hand made in Portugal by a wonderful team. The roaster is cast iron and the controls are all done with the latest PLC touch screen software, making a great combination of ‘old’ and ‘new.’ Just like Moja Coffee, Joper is a family-owned and operated business, started back in 1962.
In June, we flew to Portugal to check out the roaster and do some test roasts. The roaster was delivered earlier this month and we are currently completing its installation.
Come on in and have a look at our new roasting set-up! Once the Joper roaster is installed, we will more than triple our roasting capacity and will be able to pursue more roasting options to offer greater diversity to our wonderful Moja customers.
