A patented Roasting Plant invention, Javabot first holds aoegreenao_ beans in a series of clear storage columns. When itaots time for roasting, the beans are automatically measured out by weight and then aoewhooshedao_ into the roaster via bursts of air through clear pneumatic tubes. Itaots exciting to watch, but the process isnaott just for show: Those curved tubes are specifically designed to keep the freshly roasted beans from breaking in transit. (Like grinding, breakage releases coffeeaots flavor, which should ideally happen only moments before brewing.) Once roasted, the beans are blown back into the columns where they rest for no longer than 48 hours, allowing their flavors to mature without decaying. Then theyaotre dispensed in first-in-first-out order into our brewer or retail bags at the peak of their freshness.
