Our Mission

We strive to roast the best tasting coffee for you and our planet.
To do this we had to rethink all aspects of coffee roasting, packaging, and distribution.

From Concept... To Reality!

When we came up with the idea for Auspicious Coffee, we reached out to industry leading roasting machine manufacturers in search of an eco-friendly coffee roaster.  We wanted a roaster that:

After an exhaustive search we realized that such a machine did not exist…

So we decided to engineer a solution and develop our own technology.

We're defining the future of coffee roasting!

Coffee roasting uses a substantial amount of energy.

In our hunt for potential alternative fuels we rediscovered an overlooked fuel source:  Biomass.

For thousands of years, humans have used biomass fuel (primarily wood) to cook food and as a source of heat.

Biomass fuel is energy dense, natural, renewable, readily available, and (with modern advancements in combustion technology) it can be a clean alternative to fossil fuels.

What's The Technology In Use Today?

The Industry Standard

Most commercial and industrial coffee roasters use natural gas as their primary heat energy source.  Alternatively, some roasters use electricity.

Both gas and electric roasters often require afterburners or exhaust treatment systems to meet EPA VOC and particulate matter emissions requirements.  The most common treatment system is a regenerative thermal oxidizer (RTO)/afterburner.

Is It Clean?​

Depending on the supply composition, natural gas burner combustion can result in emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2),  nitrous oxide (N2O), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), trace amounts of sulfur dioxide (SO2), and particulate matter (PM).


Emission quantities for conventional coffee roasting technologies vary widely due to regional fuel composition and the roaster’s design.

For gas roasters: combustion efficiencyburner design, age, operation, maintenance, and certifications all factor into its emissions.

Afterburners & RTOs can consume as much energy as a roaster, essentially doubling a roaster’s carbon footprint.  

Why Biomass Energy?

Biomass energy is an often overlooked, but important, fuel source.

Effective and thoughtful use of biomass is an ecofriendly alternative to fossil fuels.

What is biomass energy? It is energy that is derived from raw plant materials. We use biomass from discarded and dead wood. Our biomass has the added benefit of promoting healthy forest growth.

By using biomass we are able to reduce:

Our unique Technology sets us apart!


Our clean sheet approach enabled us to create a machine that prioritizes efficiency, combustion performance, and emissions all while not compromising roast quality or coffee taste.


Our technology uses a combination of methods to achieve complete combustion, increased efficiency and exceptional emissions performance. Best of all, we achieve this without a regenerative thermal oxidizer/afterburner, which greatly reduces our carbon footprint.

Keeping the Flame Alive!

Maintaining a live flame is important to the roasting process. Roasting coffee naturally produces small amounts of VOCs and other products. Our roaster is designed to combust all VOC's emitted by the roasting process.

Taste the Difference!

A purposeful design: our roaster manages heat and roasting air differently than conventional roasters. This enables faster bean development to bring out intricate and delicate flavors.

Single-pass flow across our bean bed produces the cleanest tasting coffee in the industry (patent pending).
