Café Velo simply source the best quality available produce, then cook it to the highest standards. We’ve recently implemented the same principles in our hand roasted coffee. We sourced our Roaster from Probat in Germany. Probat are making roasting equipment since 1868, we’re looking forward to tapping into this vast history of coffee roasting here in Velo.
