Since roasting green coffee beans is both an art and a science, everyone needs time to work out what works best for them. Everyone’s taste buds are just that little bit different and it is always a challenge to find that perfect cup of coffee that will suit the majority of tastes. Here are a few basic pointers to help your roast get better.
- Have adequate ventilation. Roasting in a back yard, barn or porch is one way to ensure you have proper ventilation as fumes will be emitted from the roaster while you roast. Sonofresco roasters have to be vented to the outside air. So if you move indoors either use certified vent pipe directly through the wall or have the attractive vent hood for indoor ventilation.
- Keep a close eye on every roast. While you might feel comfortable leaving a roaster going while you multitask, you should be within close proximity. It doesn’t take long after the second crack for a roast to burn. Sonofresco roasters ensure that there is an automatic shut off at the temperature pre-determined by the roast setting but it is always good to be close by.
- You can bag your coffee – immediately but let your customer know that the flavor profile of the coffee improves over the next 48 hours.
Blends offer infinite possibilities. The process of roasting and blending different beans gives you so many opportunities to find the sweet spot for your business. To get the most out of home coffee roasters explore the different profiles for your favorite beans and how they combine together. It is amazing how a small amount of earthy Sumatra can enhance a smooth chocolate tasting Honduras. Have fun trying your own special blends.
