The New MCC Roastery
Moustache Coffee Club was founded in 2013 at Sean's kitchen table when we shipped fresh coffee from LA-based roasters to 8 people.
In the 7 years since then, we've expanded the club to sourcing and roasting the highest quality single-origin coffees available, highlighting the incredible diversity of flavor that specialty coffee exhibits throughout the seasons. We ship a new coffee every week, and every bag is still headed your way the day it was roasted - we're just very excited to say that our digs have gotten a bit bigger than Sean's kitchen table...
The Falcon is an incredibly precise, high-tech coffee roaster which is part of what drew us to purchase one for the club. We're able to adjust our burner intensity by as little as 1%, and the digital interface and Cropster software integration makes tracking and replicating our roast profiles much more consistent - which leads to tastier cups of coffee.
We also appreciate that the Loring is an incredibly efficient machine - using up to 80% less natural gas than conventional drum roasters. This allows us to roast more coffee with less fuel, and lessen the club's overall impact on the environment. A happier planet means happier coffee plants!
The Roasting Process
Our green coffee arrives on pallets and is stored on-site. When we're ready to do production, we break out the pallet we need, and weight out our batches of green just before they roast.
The green coffee is loaded into the roaster's hopper via a vacuum tube. Then we charge the coffee and monitor the roast's progress to ensure each batch is roasted to perfection.
