CARTE NOIRE FIRE & ICE ROASTING

The art of capturing flavours and aromas at their best

CARTE NOIRE, one of the leaders in the creation of premium quality coffee in France, has perfected its coffee roasting technique to ensure it captures the best aromas and flavours to create a range of delicious coffees. Our experts carefully and rigorously select the finest beans from the most famous coffee regions of the world to create the CARTE NOIRE premium coffee range.

One of the most crucial contributing factors in creating our premium quality coffee is the roasting process. CARTE NOIRE FIRE & ICE ROASTING takes place under the expert eye of our master roasters: just like ice extinguishes fire, the roasting of our beans is instantly stopped by a shower of cold water. The contrast between hot and cold helps to perfectly capture the aromas and flavours which create CARTE NOIRE’s taste – and thus contributes to a premium quality coffee.
