WHY WE DO, WHAT WE DO
Call it a vision, a dream, a purpose; we want to roast great coffee and work with great people to do it. It seems simple, but behind each bag of Pilot Coffee Roasters beans is a whole intercontinental network of dedicated individuals and a lot of hard work. What drives us is our passion. What guides us are our core commitments to quality, innovation and exceptional service.
AND HOW WE DO IT
– SOURCING –
The perfect roast is only possible if it begins with the perfect green bean. We track down and source exceptional coffee by working closely with our trusted partners on the ground and travelling to origin to search the land ourselves. The truth is, we would be nowhere without the skilled effort of the farmers and the workers at origin. To honour this indispensable effort, we are always expanding our Direct Trade model. This involves us going to origin to meet our growers, tour their farms, get to know one another, and work out an agreement face-to-face. Through Direct Trade, we can be sure all of the premium prices we pay goes straight into their hands.
– ROASTING –
You wouldn't know it to look at them, but each green bean has its own unique and extensive spectrum of flavour compounds that are just waiting for the right roaster to come along and unlock them. Our team cups, brews and extracts each batch meticulously and without exception until they develop the perfect roast profile that allows you to experience the full range of each bean's potential.
– BREWING –
Finally, we're looking to put our beans into the hands of like-minded folk, that want to drink or serve something a little different, something a little special, and who know a good cup of coffee is a beautiful thing.
