Join the coffee roasting revolution
No vents, no gas, and no emissions.
Bellwether’s commercial coffee roaster and intuitive roasting software were designed and built by coffee people to be the perfect addition to your cafe, installing quickly and easily.
No contractors, no permits, no gas lines, no ventilation, and no experience required.
Roast with Confidence
The Bellwether roaster and intuitive software make it simple for you to roast coffee on-site, purchase responsibly sourced green coffee curated by some of the industry’s best buyers, expertly roast using our artisan-crafted roast profiles (or create your own), and share delicious coffee with your customers just the way they like it.
Compared to most espresso machines, the Bellwether roaster is easier to install and maintain. It’s about the same size as a standard refrigerator, and roasts up to 7 pounds of green coffee every 15 minutes. It’s also the lowest carbon footprint roaster ever built.
Create with Expertise
We put decades of coffee roasting experience into our software so you can confidently roast coffee just the way your customers like it. Our intuitive app makes it simple for you to roast using profiles crafted by some of the industry’s best roasters—no experience required. You can also create your own custom roast profiles—you’ll always have full creative control. If you love the result of your creations, save and repeat—you’re guaranteed a consistent roast every time.
Source with Integrity
We created the Bellwether Marketplace to give you access to responsibly sourced green coffee—curated by some of the industry’s best buyers—from farms all around the world. Each coffee in the Bellwether marketplace comes with recommended roast profiles and comprehensive information about the coffee and farmer who produced it. Every green coffee order is delivered in easy-to-carry, easy-to-store boxes.
Share with Humanity
We source green coffee that has positive impacts on the farm communities, empowering you to serve a responsible cup. We also provide educational materials that help you share the coffee’s origin story with employees and customers.
Bellwether’s second mobile app, Tip the Farmer, accompanies our roaster software and provides you and your customers a way to share monetary appreciation with farmers directly.
