The Roaster

Head of Production. Our Master Roaster Paul has been steering the ship here at Lonton HQ for nearly 3 years now, putting in countless days and long hours to perfect every element of the roasting process, one roast at a time. What Paul doesn’t know about roasting, is not worth knowing!

The American Beauty

All Lonton coffee is hand roasted on the Diedrich IR-12 roaster in small batches of up to 12kg. The IR-12 Diedrich model utilises the latest Infrared technology which uses conductive, convective and radiant heat with complete control using the integrated computer system. Diedrich engineering is designed for consistency and repeatability. Over the past 9 years, the team at Lonton has been refining each and every element of the roasting process.
