What makes OKYRIE™ coffee so special?
Simply, it’s our Roasting Style; the secret behind OKYRIE ROYALE. Air Roasted coffee is a unique and rare method we utilize.
With Air Roasted Coffee you taste the coffee not the roaster. It’s the air that roasts the coffee not the surface of the roaster. So the coffee has a very clean taste that is intensely aromatic, minus the acids and bitter tars that are produced by conventional roasters.
Most drum roasters today introduce hot air into their roast chamber, then the beans tumble and touch the hot surfaces to roast, like clothing in a clothes dryer.
Nearly all of the other of coffee in the world is drum roasted. But roasting a bean the right way can make all the difference when it comes to the flavor of your coffee. Proper roasting won’t turn average beans into amazing beans (you have to pick the perfect bean for roasting first!). What proper roasting will do is bring out the best in quality beans. And air roasting brings out a bean’s best qualities.
This system levitates the beans on a fluidized bed of hot air, keeping the beans moving and not scorching on hot surfaces. The sole use of hot air greatly increases the rate of heat transference to the beans, creating a cleaner, more aromatic roast free of bitter tasting tars.
In the entire world, only 1% of all the coffee beans picked and harvested get the privilege of being air roasted. That’s it. We’re proud to be one of the only coffee companies in the world to produce air roasted coffee. Because after all, it tastes the best.
