We're introducing this very traditional tool, once used for roasting tea leaves, sesame seeds, etc in Japan.
It also roasts coffee beans to perfection.
This classic, everyday tool was more common among older generations, but we are rediscovering and redesigning its functionality with a minimalist, wabisabi beauty.
We are excited to introduce it to all the world.
Roasting may take 5 to 10 minutes, depending which type of roast you’d like.
You can see the process in 3 minutes.
In fact, coffee only stays fresh for 3 days after roasting, 3 hours after grinding, and 3 minutes after brewing.
For commercial coffee roasters, preserving the freshness of roasted beans is an continual problem.
Why not try roasting your own coffee?
There are many coffee roasters, and everyone roasts to their own preference.
Once you find a source for your raw coffee, roasting by yourself can be the beginning of a rewarding life with coffee.
Roasting with this primitive tool will help you feel simplicity in life.
You can make your favorite coffee without a huge machine, without computers, and without electricity.
Just get some green coffee beans, and you can make a cup of coffee.
The shape is very simple. It has a gently rounded form, with a hollow handle.
The hollow handle allows you to blow the chaff off during roasting, and to pour the beans out when you finish.
Our super heat‐resistant ceramics passed a verification test that heats the ceramic up to 1472ºF and then sink it into the water. It is hand crafted in a small, oldfashioned factory, one of the Six Ancient Kilns of Japan.
You can use it on the open flame of a gas stove or campfire, or on an electric stove. However, you can NOT safely use the Zenroast on an induction stove or in a microwaves.
The handle does become hot whilst you roast. To cover the handle and protect your hands, we chose a heavy leather.
The leather has a beautiful grain, and a smooth feel in the hand. This brings a natural touch to the simple beauty of the ceramic roaster.
You can choose the colour of the stitching from: Blue, Mustard, Red, Green, Brown.
