Brand new Loring Smart roasters have reduced natural gas consumption at Oughtred by 76%
Our recently installed, super high-efficiency Loring Smart roasters have reduced our natural gas use at the roastery by 76% and are expected to reduce our carbon footprint by 125.21 tonnes annually. That’s equivalent to 33 cars on the road for one year! The low oxygen, closed loop roasting system also allows for more control over roasting temperatures resulting in more expressive and flavourful coffees.
Canadians drink over 14 million cups of coffee each year and that number is on the rise. This technology has huge potential to change the impacts of roasting coffee on a global level.
At our Earth Day celebration on April 22nd, Delta’s Councillor Bruce McDonald helped us mark the occasion with a ribbon cutting to unveil the new roasters.
