Welcome 2

South Africa's first Solar Coffee roastery! Thank you and congratulations on selecting this fine supply of premium coffee that has been roasted using our SOLAR Coffee Roaster- the most advanced Coffee Roaster in the world. You have indeed made the right choice.

The only way to enjoy your coffee in a new world economy where the focus is upon a self-sustainable lifestyle with the lowest possible Co2 footprint, is with our unique solar roasting process. Our SOLAR Roaster combines four different heat methods of roasting which allows for an individual & specific “thermal treatment” for all bean types  during roasting (regardless of size, density or humidity) Solar energy is the primary power source for this unique roaster.

When you have your next caffeine boost be mindful of the processes applied to prepare your favourite coffee beans. Almost all traditional coffee roasters use LPG (Liquid Petroleum Gas) as an energy source for roasting. When LPG burns, it leaves behind a chemical residue. If not contained properly, it alters the taste, quality and natural goodness of coffee, which can also have negative effects one’s health.

At Snob's Coffee our SOLAR roaster heats the beans using "Infrared Radiation" heaters in a revolving perforated drum. The drum then transfers secondary heat to the beans via Conduction. At specific stages during the roasting process, air is pulsed through the beans to create a ‘fluidised bed’ which enhances the heat

transfer via ‘Thermo Syphon’ and ‘Convection’. The SOLAR roaster combines traditional "Drum roasting" and "Fluidised-Bed Roasting" processes in order to achieve consistent uniformity, resulting in full aroma and flavour. Snob's Coffee presents a vast range of Gourmet Coffees from some of the major coffee producing regions of the world, including Central America, South America, Africa and South East Asia.

As our name suggests, coffee to us is more than just a drink, it’s an experience. How coffee is consumed is part of its continuing appeal and mystique. Our coffee offers a unique taste experience, combined with the natural health benefits of freshly solar roasted coffee using an environmentally friendly process.

Solar Coffee Roasting

South Africa's first Solar Coffee roastery! The only way to enjoy your Coffee in a new world economy where
the focus is upon a self-sustainable lifestyle and a renewable energy source with the lowest possible CO2
footprint, is with our unique roasting process!

When you have your next cup of caffeine boost be mindful of the process applied to prepare your favourite
cuppa. Almost all traditional coffee roasters consume LPG (liquid petroleum gas) as an energy source
for roasting.

At Snob's Coffee we incorporate the most advanced roasting technology in the world to prepare coffee beans
to the correct degree of roasting. Solar panels, using photovoltaic cells, supply electrical energy to inverters
which in turn convert the energy to the correct levels for the SOLAR roasters. The SOLAR roasters heats the
beans with "Infrared Radiation" heaters in a revolving perforated drum. The drum transfers secondary heat to
the beans via Conduction. At specific stages during the roasting process air is pulsed through the beans to
create a fluidised bed to enhance the heat transfer via Thermo syhon and Convection.

The SOLAR roasters combines traditional "Drum roasting" and "Fluidised bed roasting"· processes in order to
achieve consistent uniformity, resulting in full aroma and flavour. The process utilises no less than four heat
transfer methods to carefully roast your coffee to perfection.

At Snob's Coffee Roastery you can pre-taste and purchase a vast range of Gourmet coffee's from the major
coffee producing regions of the world, including Central America, South America, Africa and South East Asia.

Popular coffees we roast include Harrar, Sidamo, Costa Rica, Marocogype, Bell Giana, Yergacheffe, Kenia as
well as a few house blends and our own version of a full bodied Mocha Java.

As our name suggests, coffee to us is more than just a drink. How coffee is consumed, and by whom, is part of
its continuing appeal and mystique. We offer an unique experience, combined with the natural health benefits
of freshly solar roasted coffee and a environmentally friendly process.
