Solar Roast Coffee
Brothers Mike and Dave invented their first solar coffee roaster in Oregon in the summer of 2004. They built it in their parents' backyard using mirrors, a broccoli steamer, and an old satellite dish…
Today, the brothers are in the process of completing their fifth-generation solar coffee roaster, the Helios V. When completed, this high-tech solar collector will operate from the roof of their new commercial-scale facility in downtown Pueblo, Colorado. The Helios V, like all of their previous solar roasters, uses sunlight in place of fuel on sunny days. This reduces carbon emissions, saves energy, and brings out the coffee's natural oils. Now you too can enjoy the full flavor and richness of Solar Roast Coffee!
