Beans are transported from roasters to the Rotary Batch Mixer in aluminum bins.
The mixing drum rotates while beans are being loaded to prevent stratification, limiting cycle times to only two minutes regardless of batch size.
The mixer’s tumble-cut-turn-fold blending action avoids damage to the fragile beans.
Continuous rotation of the drum during discharge prevents stratification of the batch.
Prior to blending, beans are roasted for different times and at different temperatures according to the region in which they were grown.
