Asked to summarize Kundalini Coffee, Julia Yim President Founder and COO says, “breakthrough innovation”. Most all large scale coffee is roasted using a process known as Drum Roasting. The process after roasting the coffee bean, has an additional process called after burning. Industrial afterburners are used to burn off volatile gases, created in the coffee bean roasting process. The after burning process alone uses up to 5 times more gas than was required to roast the coffee to begin with. The equivalent is a 400 horse power car driven hard flat stick for one hour. Coffee universe and other industry experts and writers have equated the life cycle assessment (LCA) full process to deliver a single cup of coffee is around 1.94 megajoules (MJ), or about half a kilowatt hour, which, trust us, is a lot!
Kundalini Coffee has disrupted this, and eliminated after burning and drum roasting from its business. Kundalini Coffee is taking a right turn of the Coffee industry conventional roundabout. The company made the conscious choice to pursue more modern sophisticated advancements in coffee bean roasting, more advanced methods. Kundalini Coffee has also removed the need to drive coffee vast distances. An in store smokeless coffee bean roastingsolution, allows retailers to roast coffee were the espresso is being served, for a fresher coffee. No need to drive roast coffee vast distances and into supply chains. Large scale coffee roasting today, is still using processes the described process of drum roasting. It is a coffee bean roasting method that has been around since the early 1900’s.
