100% USDA Organic Coffee | Roasted with Solar Power | Solar Aroma Roasted

Solar Roast Coffee is 100% USDA Organic, specializing in single origin coffees from all over the world. If you like dark roast and/or strong coffee, feel free to brew Solar Roast as strong as you want and you will find that you will never taste that burnt flavor again.

Our aroma roasting process makes our coffees the richest and most flavorful beans you will ever brew. We have the worlds only commercial, solar powered coffee roaster. Since we use solar power, our roasting process is a gentle heat resulting in a lower temperature roast. Basically we roast our coffee slow and low, like a good BBQ. This gives our coffee beans a smooth taste.

Back in 2004 Solar Roast Coffees vision started with two brothers in a garage dreaming of harnessing the sun to roast coffee. With a satellite dish and a broccoli strainer, the initial 1 pound coffee roaster (Helios 1) was created. 10 years later, Helios V roasts 70 pounds of coffee every hour.
