HOME ROAST COFFEE
ROAST SEMINAR OVERVIEW
To many, the art of roasting coffee has seemed mysterious. This seminar introduces you to the simple, key principles behind the process. We overview the machines that can be used providing a live demonstration followed by tasting different degrees of roast side-by-side.
Until the 20th century, it was common practice to purchase green coffee seeds and roast them at home. Similar to other home cooking practices, beginning with high quality raw ingredients sets you up for success. Each home roaster approaches the taste differently; some utilize intuition using a stove-top popcorn popper while others apply more science to roasting and utilize “prosumer” machines. Like most home-crafts, initial cost depends on what you are after and can range from $40 to thousands. No matter the approach, you will find that it is a fun, easy way to enjoy delicious, fresh coffee at home with minimal effort.
