Guide to Coffee Roasting

Roasting Dark Roast Coffee refers to heating coffee to create dark-roasted, aromatic coffee we love.

The aroma and flavor of green coffee beans is brought out by roasting. The green state allows beans to be stored in a safe manner without affecting their taste or quality. A green bean is soft, spongy and grassy. It is less hardy than a roasted bean.

To produce chemical reactions, the beans are quickly heated. They are quickly cooled once they have reached the desired temperature. Although the aroma of roasted beans is very similar to coffee, the moisture has been removed. These beans can be ground to make coffee beans.

To preserve their fresh aroma, they should be eaten as soon as possible after being roasted.

Roasting is both an art and science.

Master roasters require years of training to be able “read” the beans and make the right decisions. It takes just seconds to tell the difference between perfectly roasted coffee beans and poor batches.

Be aware of what you roast

To identify their favourite roasts, many roasters use specific names. There is little industry standardization. This can cause confusion when purchasing roasts. However, most roasts fall into one of the following four categories: medium, medium-dark, dark, or medium-dark.

Many people mistakenly believe that darker roasts contain more caffeine. Lighter roasts contain slightly more caffeine.

While personal preferences may have an influence on the perfect roast, they can also be influenced by regional or geographical preferences. These are the most common roasts that you will find in each of these color categories. Before you buy, ask questions. The taste of roasts can make a big difference.
