Bringing roasting to the point of consumption means more than just decentralization. It means de-industrialization!
Rapid, clean, fresh, and fair coffee everywhere is finally made possible.
Our AI-powered countertop roaster enables ethically sourced specialty coffee roasting on demand, autonomously, anywhere.
We are sustainable in everything we do: Working directly with the farmers, we guarantee the fair share for their work and open the opportunity for green coffee to be packaged in the origin country using only recycled materials.
Unlike industrial roasting, our technology achieves incredible energy efficiency and produces no smoke, no ambient heat, or noise.
The journey to that perfect cup starts with the core of the coffee plant - the coffee seed.
We source specialty coffee beans directly from select farms across the globe. Our roasting profiles are tailored to the specific unique properties of the beans we pick.

The practice of on-demand roasting dates back to the origins of coffee consumption when coffee was roasted on an open flame. Industrial roasting was the compromise devised to roast coffee at scale.
But now, ansā's technology is bringing coffee back to its roots. Fresh, clean, fair, full of care and at scale.
ansā's patent-pending roasting technology uses an innovative method to heat the beans from the inside-out. The roasting process is governed by AI that replaces the human operator with a fully autonomous process that produces a homogenous and consistent roast. Every time.
This transformative invention not only guarantees a perfect roast, but also brings environmental benefits as it drives Particulate Matter (PM) and CO2 to zero, while improving energy efficiency by orders of magnitude.
In a bean shell
We are coffee.
Coffee is a commodity. It is artisanal. The production, processing, and preparation of coffee is a precise scientific procedure. But coffee, to its lovers, is a religion. For the coffee producers it is a source of income, and pride.
But more than anything - coffee connects people.
Coffee is what connected us - foodies with a taste for gastronomy, scientists and makers. Artists and engineers. All of us, together. Pushing the limit of what's possible to bring you the pure, the fresh, the fair, the prosperous. Or, in one word:, the answer.
