    Roaster extra

    Tudor Tea and Coffee after many years of substantial expansion within the UK hot beverage market invested in the installation of an automated “State of the Art” Coffee Roasting plant, completed in September 2002, the Coffee Factory has been transformed with this impressive Brambati plant offering complete automation.

    Our Roaster

    The Coffee Roasting plant has a capacity now of in excess of five tons of coffer per day, where ultimate control of the quality and the consistency in the product can be assured, furthermore, a complete history of the raw consistent bean through to the finished packaged bags can be verified via our audit facilities, to ensure that the customer remains safe in the knowledge of blend integrity (Rainforest Alliance, Organic and Fair Trade products can be offered for those who are passionately interested in those communities who grow and earn their livelihood producing high quality coffee).

    Tudor believes in hot air slow roasting to enable the aroma, texture and flavour of the coffee’s to be maximised with ultimate freshness. Total control of heat temperature throughout all points in the roast is assured.  Once roasted, the coffee is passed through the de-stoner’s and metal detectors to eradicate all the problems that can affect the grinders whether they are for commercial or domestic purposes.

    In addition, Tudor have installed with the Brambati system, after burners and catalytic converters to clean the air before it is sent into the atmosphere and therefore achieve the highest standard of environmental cleanliness and uphold the highest health and safety standards.

  2. The art of blending

    We spend time with our clients, helping them choose the right blend of coffee. This includes offering tasting on site. Importance is placed on choosing a blend which will enhance their business and suit their clientele.  All budgets are accommodated for without compromising on quality. Taste and price are of equal importance!  Each blend of beans is unique so we adjust grinders and gram throw when necessary.

    When creating a new blend we look first at our customer needs and market trends. Then we source green beans from Continents such as Africa, Central & South America, Indonesia and other Asian Growing regions like new growing areas such as Vietnam. Our understanding and techniques of roasting and blending, allow us to produce a smooth, rich, dense, sweet product with fine Aroma suitable for all tastes. This gives us the unique to be both a mainstream and innovative artisan coffee roaster and a leader in the UK coffee industry.

    Packaging

    At Tudor, our quality coffees and teas are packed in house. This way, we capture the freshness of our products at their source and ensure our high standards are maintained for our customers to enjoy.

    All our commercial coffee and tea is packaged with the same care as it’s produced. Our beans are packed in bags with one-way valves and this helps to maintain optimum freshness.
