Our roast profile could be described as “BALANCED”. We steer well clear of second crack roast and rather, develop our beans enough so that both acidity and sweetness are present. Roasting only high quality specialty coffee, we endeavour to allow the flavours of the bean and its region to shine through the coffee. We are deliberate in allowing the farmers careful decisions in picking and processing to speak for themselves, influencing the process as little as possible for a truly raw and authentic farm to cup experience.
We believe that a coffee roasting starts not when burners on roaster go on, and green beans enter the roasting chamber, for us it starts much much earlier. It starts on the Farm, on Finca whether it is in Honduras, Nicaragua, Columbia or Sumatra. We believe the Coffee Roasting Cycle starts right there when we select what coffees roast and offer to our customers. Within moments of walking into any coffee roasters green bean warehouse, and inspecting their inventory, it is very easy to say what kind of roaster it is; Commercial, High Commercial or Specialty. At Dramanti, we only choose coffees with a cupping score of 84 plus for our Blends and 88plus for our Single Origin offerings, allowing us to stand out as specialty coffee leaders in Brisbane.
We maintain a relationship with our farmers year after year and on a first name basis. In 2016 and 2017, we are proud to announce that 80% of our coffee was sourced from farms that we have personally visited. One of the first coffees we ever roasted in Wynnum back in April 2012 was from Mauricio A Salveirra from El Salvador. We have helped Mo establish his “Supersonic” bean as a brand in Brisbane that our customers absolutely adore. Back then that was just a great coffee to us, but now, Mo is a close friend that we purchase coffee from every season. Coffees from Don Fabio Caballero, Honduran farmer are also featured in our cafes for past 4 years. We enjoyed their coffee so much that Dragan took a trip to Central America, to get in touch with the roots and to uncover the secrets of what makes those coffees taste so good. We also love dealing with our Nicaraguan coffee expert, Claudia Lovo, a young lady who runs a Dry Mill and helps many farmers with their production, picking, drying, milling and exporting of their beans. Those Farmers do not speak English and are unable to use computers and in past were easily manipulated for price. But now Claudia has made connections with roasters like Dramanti, who are more than wiling to pay a premium to gratify a premium product; tasty green beans.
