Everyday at World Headquarters we roast a tremendous number of beans. If you counted all the beans, one by one, we would roast close to 1,770,000 beans daily. That's a lot of beans!
Bean counters? NO! Bean Artists? Indeed!
Stephen and Jeff roast all our coffee. They take particular pride in roasting our best Brazilian and Colombian beans to a deep golden full city colour.
Their job doesn't stop there: Stephen and Jeff are well qualified to use an assortment of extracts and essences with names such as Cocoa Mocha-nut, Jamaica Butter Rum Fudge, Irish Cream and Vanilla Buttercream (to name but a few) to enhance the flavour of the finished cup. In fact they use almost 70 different flavour extracts depending upon the season and the expectations of our customers.
We get some amazing flavour combinations. Fortunately, the extracts and essences do not add carbs or sugars to the finished coffee so we can all enjoy a calorie-free treat every morning, noon and night.
So, next time you take a sip of your favourite flavoured coffee, think of the Stephen and Jeff-our Artists in Residence at JavaMoose.
