With zero smoke and no need for gas lines, expensive ventilation, permits, or even prior coffee roasting experience, Bellwether makes it possible to roast quality coffee on-demand anywhere. After only a few seconds of prep work, the Bellwether Roaster roasts, cools, and holds your roasted coffee automatically, allowing you to roast and run your business at the same time.
Ok… but how does it work?!
A combination of hot air, direct heat and a bunch of sensors means the roaster follows the chosen profile and roasts coffee perfectly every time—no matter who is operating the machine or where you’re roasting.
Using clean technology, the roaster gets rid of all smoke and dirty air typically emitted by a traditional roaster, allowing you to experience all the benefits of roasting coffee on-site without the hassle, mess, or harmful environmental impact.Learn More
Does it taste the same as coffee roasted on a traditional roaster?
We put taste to the test by letting an independent team of professional tasters compare Bellwether-roasted coffee with coffees roasted on conventional gas powered machines, and we’ve outperformed our competition every single time. Curious about our testing program and how we pursue coffee quality? Send us a note and we’ll give you the details.Learn More
What if I’ve never roasted coffee before?
No problem! We put decades of roaster expertise in our intuitive app, so even if you’ve never roasted coffee before you can confidently roast like the experts. With just a few roasts under your belt, you’ll be able to easily learn the difference between profiles and before you know it, you’ll be able to create your own profiles.Learn More
