Wood Fired Coffee
- ABOUT US -
Bohemian Roastery is traditional coffee roasting reimagined.
Created and operated by the Akers Family, Bohemian Roastery (BoRo) is a family run, wood fire coffee roasting company in the high desert town of Bend Oregon. When we found out that the majority of all coffee beans in the world were roasted using petroleum fired heat, we decided to find a better way. This focused exploration lead us to discover a far more healthful and flavorful way of roasting coffee beans.
We designed and hand-built a one of a kind roaster that uses select hardwoods instead of petroleum. This makes BoRo one of only a few committed roasters in the U.S. using this ancient and proven method. Hardwoods produce a gentler, more moist heat that allows the oils and flavors to develop at a slower rate. This eliminates the bitter aftertaste that can overpower the flavor of a quality bean.
Our green beans are sourced globally direct from a collection of twenty-five million 3.5-acre family owned socially and environmentally responsible farms in the finest coffee producing regions of the world, many of which are in developing countries.
Our inspiration to begin this coffee journey was born from the Bohemian philosophy "To bring like-minded people together for a common good."
