Quality control

During our quality-controls we check flavor, original aroma, its behavior in the cup and the percentage of defects. First, we weigh a small quantity and pass it through a sieve where the grains are separated according to their size and this gives us the % of faults.

Here at GRANELL we carry out 2 types of cupping:

Espresso Cupping

We roast a small sample of coffee, using a turbo convection system, so as to verify the quality when making an espresso. The toasted beans are ground to a precise and measured point. This process is essential to obtain a good cup. The cream of the coffee appears magically.

Brazilian Cupping

With two traditional stoves we toast samples of grains using a more traditional method, where a flame warms the toasting chamber directly. in this case the grains are less toasted so that we are able to check the characteristics of the coffee.

 

We grind the coffee with a traditional system which gives a thicker grind. We weigh 8gr of coffee and serve it with hot water and our technical team analyzes the servings. Our technical team check the flavor, color and aroma of the coffee, which will soon be in your cafeteria or home.

Storage

These are our facilities, over 10.000 square meters where the best beans are processed and stored.  Our factory receives, from the main coffee producing countries in the world, the fruit of a meticulous process of coffee production. After unsealing the container, which guarantees the original quality, we proceed to take a sample in order to undertake our own quality control.

Roasting

Our Master Coffee Roaster orders by computer the transfer of the coffee beans in order to start the roasting process. The beans are taken to a storage area where they are kept until the roasting process begins. The combination of time, heat and experience come together to create a pure roasted coffee. 

Another roasting system is known as torrefacto. Torrefacto coffee is obtained by adding sugar during the last stage of the roasting process.

Packing

The packaging process is computerized and automatized. The packs are weighed and sealed under the strictest of quality controls and fitted with an aroma valve so that the coffee conserves all its qualities up to the point of consumption. Our advanced airtight package system allows us to pack great amounts even for house brands.

Day after day, we roast, pack and distribute our coffee along the Mediterranean Coast, from Tarragona to Cadiz, through Córdoba, Granada, Murcia, Almería, Castellón, Alicante y Valencia. Comercial Granell also exports to China, Poland, Germany, Greece, France, Saudi Arabia and Jordan. Since 1940, we have combined dreams, experience and tenacity to create a company prepared to face the challenges of this new millennium, always framed by our values of quality and business integrity.
