We have been talking to Henry Northeast who is our Technical Roaster and also helps out in Coffee Quality Control. We have asked Henry some questions to give you a better idea of his job and his opinion on some topics related to the coffee industry.

What does your job involve?

My job involves roasting our hand roasted in Cornwall blends and Freehand coffee blends to the highest standards and taste profiles. 

How do you take your coffee?

I usually go for an Americano as you get the whole flavour.

Favourite coffee blend and why?

My favourite coffee blend at the moment is the Hand Roasted in Cornwall Espresso number 1, because I roast it!

What do you love most about coffee?

Just the variety and complexity of roasting the beans. Also chatting to people about coffee. There is so much knowledge out there and I always learn something new about coffee every day.

Top barista or coffee tip?

Clean and look after your equipment and your coffee will taste a lot better.

Biggest pet hate in the coffee industry?

Dirty steam arms, absolutely no need!
