Jacobsen & Svart started as one of the smallest nano coffee roasteries in Norway back in 2012. It was founded by (me) Tony Jacobsen. I would call myself a madcap barista who has always loved experimenting with coffees and trying new things. First setup was a 2 kilo coffee roaster connected to a hacked air conditioning system, where i manipulated the water percentage in the room. December 2013 I moved the roastery in the same building as the chocolate geeks, Cielo. Together we started experimenting with food pairing and chocolate pairings. Buying a Diedrich ir-12 coffee roaster pushed the roastery up to new levels and a bigger scale than an output of 20 kilo roasted coffees a day.
In 2015 i am starting Svart by Jacobsen & Svart a full scale microroastery with a public coffee lab where we can produce fine coffees for fine people. My goal is to provide sensory experiments that taste good and have unique details roasted into them.
