“Life is not about finding anything; it’s about creating something.” These words, once uttered by the artist Bob Dylan, have become the core philosophy behind Simple Bru’s roasting operation. It is a craving to create which drives them, with the complexity of coffee as their chosen canvas.
As a micro-roastery, they are captivated by the aesthetic scope of coffee and so exude an intimate, hand-crafted and specialized approach to roasting, and each batch is charged with the hope of self-expression. Their fundamental philosophy to roasting naturally pours over into the brewing rationale.
They believe that coffee brewing has become a religion of its own; a daily observance that consists of endemic sacred sacraments, liturgy and customs. It’s a ritual that brings meaning, sets in motion and connects humans. “We are addicted to it. In short, our benediction to you is speciality coffee – consciously sourced, aesthetically roasted and creatively brewed. Alternative roasters. Caffeine Expressionists. Lifestyle café”.
