Why hand-roasted?

Hand-roasting coffee is an art and a skill which requires the roaster to be extremely sensitive to the transformation of the bean, so as to achieve the best roast suited to the character of the bean.

No mechanised equipment or computers are involved  as the coffee beans are roasted in small batches using individual hand-crank roasters, and the coffee roaster’s full effort and attention is engaged in the entire process.Her senses are tuned to precision as it is necessary for her to monitor the colour and size of the beans, smell the aroma of the combustion of sugars, and listen to the sounds made by the coffee bean as it goes through the various stages of roasting, to ensure that the coffee bean is roasted to completion.

Wamama Kahawa coffee is 100% hand-roasted; the labour intensive-ness of the process we use ensures maximum income generating opportunities for the women who roast and pack the coffee.
