  • Java Bob's Coffee Roasting
    Since 1985, the proprietors of Java Bob's Coffee Roasting have sourced their beans from that venerable species of coffee tree: the Coffea arabica. Each bundle of Arabica beans is roasted in small batches on fluid bed roasters, which heat beans without burning their skin and tampering with their flavor. The process yields a variety of global blends, ranging from the certified organic Redwood Rush to the Jazzland Espresso Dark, a post-roast blend of six varietals. Java Bob's makes its roasts available everywhere, from restaurants and hotels to offices and banks, but its involvement doesn't always end with the beans. Java Bob's supplies vital gear such as gourmet mochas from Mocafe to flavored syrups. Burgeoning and professional baristas can also stock up on the tools of their trade, including Bunn grinders and Rancilio espresso machines straight from Milan.
