Solar Roast Organic Coffee

Some of us need a good ‘kick in the pants’ every morning and if you’re like me, that may involve consuming a cup or two of java. For those in need of a greener source of this elixir, Solar Roast Coffee has a unique solution.

Organic coffee is solar-roasted in a 10-foot solar array, to focus the rays of sunshine onto a drum roaster. This roaster is capable of reaching temperatures upwards of 550 degrees F. The roaster swivels and tilts, allowing it to track the sun throughout the day, from sunrise to sunset.

The roaster doesn’t burn fossil fuels to create its heat, and it uses a solar panel to power all the electronic components on the device. Solar Roast claims to be the only coffee roaster in the world that can produce a 100% fossil-fuel-free roasted coffee. And it’s completely organic.

Fair Trade and earth friendly.
