Coffee Science & Education Centre



To continuously improve the coffee experience through scientific experimentation, engineering and best-in-class education, Seven Miles has formed the Coffee Science & Education Centre (CSEC)

Led by Dr. Adam Carr, Our Research Centre conducts rigorous experimentation on roasting and the extraction processes, as well as road testing purpose built equipment from an array of manufacturers. Doing so enables Seven Miles to deliver the best quality coffee and practical solutions for our customers.

Research Centre

Our Research Centre was established to push the boundaries of the current state of the art in coffee roasting and extraction, ensuring the best quality coffee for our customers. The Research Centre has three primary divisions, aimed and delivering the best coffee experience today, 2 and 10 years into the future.

Process Improvement – Ensuring that we are roasting the very best in the most effective ways possible. Here we integrate our QA processes and continuous improvements to our systems to deliver consistently high quality and economically sustainable prices

Equipment Testing – Ensuring that we and our customers are best supported through the latest and best equipment, customised to the market they are operating within

Advanced Research and Development – Looking to the future; actively researching and practically integrating advanced technologies within our roasting and QA processes to deliver the consistency and taste our customers have grown to appreciate.

We are committed to uncovering the technologies that will make a real difference in the way we enjoy and make coffee, and to help our customers and partners to distinguish themselves from their competition.
