Circle of Beans coffee beans are slow roasted. We roast the coffee beans up to 200 0C in 15 minutes. This way, we roast the beans more slowly than usual, which results in a better development of the bean’s aromas.

The Arabica beans grow in about 70 countries around the equator on small and large coffee plantations. This also includes ‘our’ beans. The farmers wash and dry the harvest locally. This harvest is then sold to coffee corporations. A green coffee broker buys the collected coffee harvest and ships it to Antwerp. From there, the pallets of unroasted coffee are delivered to our roastery in Ede. So honestly, this process is far from circular. It’s not easy to change, but we’re working on it. We can see that dot on our horizon
Everything that happens afterwards with the coffee, the coffee grounds, the packaging, the transport, and everything that’s organized around it is 100% circular. Read more about the circle
As far as we’re concerned, fair trade is only a very small part of the coffee puzzle. Of course, it’s great for farmers to enjoy a fair income. But if we want to continue to enjoy our coffee, more needs to be done. Much more. We believe in education on circular cultivation. For example, by placing fermenters in the countries of origin, on the plantations. This way, a farmer can convert the coffee pulp into electricity and high-quality fertilizer. If we manage that on a large scale, we will increasingly make the raw material chain locally sourced. No extra energy or artificial fertilizer will be needed. The fact that the farmers can earn a fair wage is a result of this process, not a goal in itself.
