Sivet's Convection Roasting
In 1976, Mike Sivets developed the first convection air roasting system for coffee beans. It was a revolutionary development that has helped to transform certain segments of the coffee industry in the United States. In 2002, Imperial acquired a Sivets Commercial Convection Air Roaster from the Sivet’s Corporation and began roasting our own products. The differences were astonishing. Many of the inherent challenges of the old-style drum roasters which have tendency to burn the tips of the beans thereby producing a bitter after taste were set aside with the introduction of this unit in our production model. Much like the air popcorn popper of the 70’s, hot air passes across the green coffee beans and roasts them evenly and to perfection revealing a wonderful cup of coffee with a great flavor profile every time.
Some of the benefits to this method of roasting include less shrinkage of the bean, production of a meatier, full-bodied flavor profile and a much more rapid production format that frees up labor saving thousands in man hours which we pass along in savings to the customer. This method of roasting provides an evenly colored bean that is visually appealing to the consumer. There is nothing like a well-roasted bean with that great aroma to flood the senses. We’ve gone out of our way to be the only roaster in the eight state region using this method. We feel that it helps set us apart from the competition giving us the advantage of providing the best cup of coffee around! Time for you to taste the difference.
