Roaster Specific Protocols

In addition to the enhanced cleaning, sanitizing, and personal hygiene efforts listed above, we have significantly reduced the amount of staff and other persons entering our roasting facility. Only our Head Roaster is present the majority of the time. When deliveries are made/shipped our bay doors are opened for enhanced air circulation. In the event that more than one person is present at the roasting facility all social distancing guidelines are strictly followed. We have also modified how we conduct our quality control tastings so that there is zero contact between any one staff member and another or shared items.
