Loring Smart Roast will install the first example of its new S7 Nighthawk coffee roaster at The Roasterie in Kansas City.
The latest – and smallest – in Loring’s line of high-efficiency coffee roasters, the S7 Nighthawk requires only 22ft2 of floor space. Its compact footprint and relatively small (1.4-7kg) roasting capacity allow customers working in smaller spaces or with smaller batch sizes to access the efficiency and control of a Loring roaster.
For The Roasterie – which this year celebrates 25 years in business – the S7 Nighthawk will be the fourth in a collection of Loring roasters.
Craig Park, green coffee buyer for The Roasterie, said of the acquisition, “The addition of the Loring S7 will allow us to take the same efficiency, consistency and controllability we’ve come to appreciate so much and apply it even to our smallest batch sizes, including our line of micro- and nano-lot Reserve coffees.”
Like Loring’s larger-capacity roasters, the S7 Nighthawk’s touchscreen interface provides precision control throughout the entirety of the roasting process. Its automation software delivers consistency from one roast to the next, and an innovative control system allows for roast profiles to be accurately repeated across batch sizes, and even from one sized roaster to another. This is especially important for customers, like The Roasterie, whose goal is to replicate roast profiles.
