Featured roaster – DECEMBER 2017
We’re in good company this month. Our featured roaster are seasoned entrepreneurs of Melbourne’s coffee industry, having collectively owned, operated and successfully sold near a dozen of the city’s coveted cafes between them over the past five years… Introducing Inglewood Coffee Roasters.
Forever trying to expand their horizons and abilities, Inglewood’s head roaster and green coffee buyer Cory Slater and business development director Julien Moussi felt the time was right to have a crack at the roasting side of the industry. “Julien and I love the coffee industry, and we love business. We both feel very fortunate to be involved in an industry that we are so passionate about”.
Their experience owning cafes including the likes of Penta Elsternwick, Annoying Brother Fitzroy and Legacy Camberwell, meant they were only too well aware of Melbourne’s tough coffee market littered with elite competition. They knew this meant their coffee had to be more than just “good”.
With this in mind, and knowing that every coffee is different, the team consistently aim to bring out the sweetness of the beans in the roasting process. They use their seasoned palates to identify things they like and don’t like, and adapt their roast profiles to highlight the real attributes of every coffee.
Not only do they want to satisfy the likes of coffee fanatics, but they also want to draw in people who are new to specialty coffee. “I think really sweet coffee has a greater potential to give people that ”uh-ha!” moment in separating specialty for the rest of the industry”… We think Cory and the Inglewood guys are onto something!
