Coffee Roaster

Night Time Frog !

Everyone at Wood N’ Frog was done for the day and the cafe sat lit from within. A lot of fresh coffee passed across the counter today. In the window is the new Roastaire, which contrasts beautifully to the Moroccan look and feel of the cafe. This place sets a whole new standard of freshness for coffee  in the community of Tsawwassen B.C. See you soon ‘here’ for coffee…. Cheers,Jim

Well, it’s official, Wood N’ Frog Coffee Co. in Tsawwassen B.C. is officially OPEN !  Owners Kelly and Sandy have worked diligently to create something that many people will talk about in the future.

Evenly Roasted Makes A Difference !

We’re in high gear getting ready for the Canadian Coffee & Tea Show and we were talking today about what makes our roasting method unique. Aside from being the first company in Canada to close the loop while roasting, in order to fully appreciate what we do you first need to understand how coffee is currently being roasted.

The bean actually roasts faster on the outside than the inside and that’s one of...

At the heart of every great bean…

At the heart of every great bean is the method in which it is roasted. Every great Roastmaster is only as good as his roaster and Raymond who leads the final assembly of roaster for our company is found here working on one of our high speed precision blowers. These blowers use some of the same materials found in the now retired space shuttle !  Our closed loop design requires a precision heat and air management system and this I can assure you is the heart and soul of every Roastaire.

Moving Forward

Life is all about moving forward with enough courage to keep trying, and staying focused, while at the same time reflecting on our life experiences to minimize making the same mistakes twice (or three times for that matter) while moving ahead. I was going through Jasper National Park today on route to Edmonton to pick up a new Roastaire for our customer in Tsawwassen and thought the photo was fitting. The adventure continues….and there’s no question that life is in front, not behind…although ‘objects in the past may seem closer than they appear’  ...

Another Epic Canadian Coffee Journey Starts

For the second time in as many years we’ve decided to travel cross country to show the coffee lovers of Toronto what truly fresh coffee is all about. Starting on the September long-weekend, we head east through Edmonton to the 2012 Canadian Coffee & Tea Show. In addition to roasting in-doors without emissions, we have been asked to head-up a couple of classes on why the ‘Roastery Café will be the next evolution of the coffee house’. The journey is epic… but so is the coffee industry for Canadians.
