Salt River Coffee Company Announces Partnership with Bellwether Coffee
Salt River Coffee Company Brings Electric, Ventless, Zero-Emissions Coffee Roaster to Shepherdsville, KY
SHEPHERDSVILLE, KY — September 9, 2021 — Salt River Coffee Company today announced its partnership with Bellwether Coffee, makers of the first-of-its-kind zero-emissions commercial coffee roaster and integrated Coffee Marketplace. The Bellwether Roaster is the world’s first internet-connected, zero-emissions commercial coffee roaster. Bellwether’s recirculating roasting technology removes particulates and volatile organic compounds in real-time, reducing the carbon footprint of roasting by an average of 90%. The addition of the Bellwether Roaster to our roastery and shop helps us to provide freshly roasted, delicious coffee while making sustainability a priority for both the planet and our community.
“Bellwether’s Roaster is perfectly suited to embrace our mission to roast coffee that benefits people. With Bellwether, I know we can stay focused on our mission to deliver freshness with convenience, give back in support of social causes, and embrace sustainable eco-friendly practices. Best of all and most important — an unparalleled coffee experience for our customers,” said Athena Williamson, Founder and CEO of Salt River Coffee Company.
According to the National Coffee Association, 62% of Americans drank coffee yesterday. The continued growth in coffee consumption and a growing interest in higher quality and sustainability will lead consumers to care more about how their coffee is grown, sourced, roasted, and served.
“By purchasing a Bellwether Roaster, our partners are not only roasting delicious coffee, but they are investing in equitable futures for coffee farmers through purchasing green coffee from our marketplace, and in sustainability for our environment by eliminating harmful emissions in the roasting processes,” said Bellwether CEO, Nathan Gilliand.
Customers in the Bullitt County area can now try coffee roasted on the Bellwether Roaster at Salt River Coffee Company. For further information, visit www.saltrivercoffee.com and www.bellwethercoffee.com.
