About StokeRoast:

StokeRoast was founded by a local family. Roaster/Co-Owner, Edward Graveline is just 17-years-old. He became a coffee lover at an early age, then learned about home roasting from a family friend. It started as a hobby, but soon, he was being asked to roast coffee for family and friends. Virtually everyone who tasted his coffee said it was the best they’d ever had and wanted some for themselves. Edward was presented with the phenomenal opportunity to apprentice at Mariposa Coffee Company in 2017. There, he learned the science behind the roasting process from a 30-year veteran of the industry and a pioneer of the fluid bed roasting process (more on that in a minute). The education he received there helped him develop roasting and blending styles that are truly unique from anything else you’ll find locally. The Graveline family has ties with Fresno Bully Rescue going back to 2010, when they fostered a litter of 4 puppies that were pulled from a kill shelter. One of those puppies, Georgia, became the family pet and an amazing breed ambassador to everyone she meets. Now almost 9, she’s still the big, loveable, happy goofball she was the day she came home.

The Blend:

We are so pumped to announce our latest blend, “Rumpus Time”! This is a medium roast comprised of premium beans from three different countries and two different continents. Whether French pressed, brewed on drip or as a pour-over, Rumpus Time delivers an incredibly balanced cup. Aromas of hot chocolate are the first indicator that this isn’t your normal cup of Joe. On the palate, you’ll notice both milk and dark chocolate, almond, walnut, allspice and light berry notes. As for the name, it was inspired by our pittie, Georgia, and her friends. Anyone who spends any time around these amazing dogs knows that they get these bursts of energy where they run and play with unbridled enthusiasm and intensity. In our house, we call it Rumpus Time and it seemed like a fitting name for this coffee. Hopefully, it gives you a little shot of that same energy. Whether at work or play, we can all use a little Rumpus Time in our day.

The Process:

As mentioned, StokeRoast employs what is known as the “fluid bed” roasting process. This is different than the vast majority of commercially roasted coffee, which is produced by “drum roasters.” Essentially, the fluid bed process uses extremely hot air to roast the coffee beans. Unlike in a drum, air roasted beans never come into contact with scalding hot metal or scar by falling from the top to the bottom. They’re not trapped inside a drum with smoke and CO2 either. Fluid bed roasters are considerably more expensive than drum roasters, but we feel that the difference is worth it. Expertly air roasted beans will not display the smoky, burnt or bitter flavors that have become the norm with so many commercially roasted coffees. What they do have is a clarity and definition of flavors that can’t be beat. Try the Rumpus Time or any other StokeRoast offering to see for yourself.
