Unveiling the Coffee Alchemy: The Journey Before Roasting at Siolim Specialty Coffee Roasters


Ever wondered about the remarkable journey your coffee beans undertake before they are transformed into that perfect cup of coffee? Join us as we lift the curtain and take you behind the scenes at Siolim Specialty Coffee Roasters to explore the meticulous steps that lead to the creation of a truly exceptional brew.

Step 1: Meticulous Sorting

Our journey commences when we receive coffee beans from the farms. The first step is meticulous sorting. Every bean undergoes a rigorous selection process to remove even the tiniest imperfections. This ensures that only the highest-quality beans proceed to the next stage of their adventure.

Step 2: Preservation and Protection

Once the premium beans have been selected, we entrust them to the care of EcoTact. These beans are sealed in 5kg hermetic bags, specially designed to preserve their freshness. These bags are then nestled within sturdy corrugated boxes, creating a protective fortress that safeguards the beans against the ravages of time.

Step 3: Measuring Moisture and Sizing Up

Before we even contemplate the roast, a crucial step is measuring the moisture content. This data is meticulously logged for future reference, ensuring that our coffee maintains consistent quality. We also pay attention to bean size, ensuring that we have the finest beans ready for their transformation in the roasting process.

Step 4: The Roasting Artistry

Now, the magic unfolds! The green coffee beans take their place in the roasting hopper, where our skilled roasters work their magic. Roasting is not just a process; it's an art. In this delicate dance of heat, time, and expertise, we bring out the unique flavors and aromas hidden within each coffee bean.

Step 5: The Patience of Resting

Following the roast, patience is our secret ingredient. We allow the freshly roasted coffee to rest for a few days. This resting period is essential as it allows the gases trapped during roasting to escape, resulting in a smoother, more vibrant brew when you finally savor your cup.

Step 6: The Quest for Quality

But our dedication to quality doesn't stop there. We subject our coffee to rigorous quality checks, including cupping sessions to assess taste and aroma. We even measure the extraction yield to understand how easy it is to extract the coffee's flavors.


At Siolim Specialty Coffee Roasters, every step in the journey from farm to cup is a labor of love. It's a dedication to delivering you the finest coffee experience, one that captures the essence of every coffee bean we nurture. Our coffee is more than a beverage; it's a journey, a story, and an exploration of flavors. Join us in savoring this extraordinary coffee adventure.
