Denim Coffee Innovates with Advanced Roasting and Flash Chill Tech

Denim Coffee, a Central Pennsylvania-based coffee shop, has expanded its operations beyond its downtown Chambersburg location to include a 33,000-square-foot warehouse for roasting coffee and producing baked goods.

This expansion, following the 2021 purchase of the warehouse, has enabled the introduction of a state-of-the-art recirculation coffee roaster from Italy, enhancing the quality of their coffee. This new roaster, differing from traditional drum convection roasters, allows for precise and rapid heating, contributing to Denim’s ability to roast 1,000 pounds of coffee daily. Additionally, Denim Coffee has adopted flash chill technology, a novel method in the U.S. for producing cold coffee that maintains acidity and taste factors better than cold brew.

This technology quickly cools hot brewed coffee from 205 degrees to 40 degrees in 30 seconds, and the coffee is then stored in kegs for up to two months at room temperature or six months refrigerated. These kegs are used in Denim’s retail locations to ensure consistent quality. The company is also planning to can their flash-chilled coffee, aiming for a release by the end of the year, pending quality satisfaction.
