Sonofresco offers coffee roasting machines for a variety of needs and sizes to help brew the perfect cup of coffee. While the taste and finish of roasted coffee differs, there are certain steps that you can take to make better roasted coffee. By following these four essential steps to improve the taste of roasted coffee, you will enjoy a better cup of coffee.
Use Filtered Water
Coffee is 98 percent water. There are three choices when selecting water: (1) filter, (2) bottled, (3) tap. Tap water is too full of unpurified sources to be a good choice. Bottled water is often too expensive. Filtered water is often your best bet. The type of water you choose to make coffee can greatly affect the coffee’s taste.
Correctly Operate Your Roaster
Sonofresco Coffee Roasters are designed to be simple to use and come with instructions to familiarize yourself with the operation of the machinery. If you are unsure of how to properly roast your beans, never be afraid to consult professionals like Sonofresco for advice.
Properly Heat the Beans
Beans that are not properly heated do not release the proper amount of flavor. Beans that have not been properly heated are also visible by their color. If you are unsure about either of these signs, beans that have not been adequately roasted cannot be properly cracked with your fingers. Before you roast, make sure you understand the different stages of roasting and how these different roasting stages can result in different flavors of coffee.
Avoid Overheating the Beans
In the same way that beans that are not properly roasted can ruin the taste of coffee, scorching beans detracts from the flavor causing a bitter taste. Over roasting can almost taste like burnt coffee and can ruin the essential level of oils and flavors inside of the coffee bean. Think of heating the bean as a careful process, heat the bean insufficiently and the bean is not properly broken down. Heat the bean too much and you ruin the delicate levels of oil and flavors inside of the bean.
