Broadcast — Roasting & Sourcing
The Outliers single origin series is a bold exploration in taste and technique. Every special release begins with the search for a rare and intriguing coffee, often taking us to lesser-known plantations in emerging markets around the globe. Once we find our standout – something that truly deserves ‘outlier status’ – we ship a limited quantity of green beans back to Atomic HQ in Kingsland, Auckland. With a little time and patience, our roasting crew delicately tease out the subtleties, flavours and textures that make each micro-lot a one-of-a-kind sensory experience.
In every industry you need people to set the bar, that are committed to excellence and diversity of a global community. When it comes to the coffee world, that's the COE. After going head to head with roasters from around the globe, we managed to secure the lot – Lot #11 to be exact, from the 2019 Cup Of Excellence Costa Rica competition.
Whether you're a clued up coffee roaster or a stickler for sustainability, having a roaster that reduces fuel consumption by up to 80% compared to conventional drum roaster is a bit of a big deal.
