You can roast coffee yourself at home in just 10 minutes. The inner core of the coffee cherry, known as the bean, is roasted. This bean is green and has a hard core. The green core has to be made to lose water when the coffee is roasted.

This happens through the roasting process. The hard core loses water and weight through roasting. The heat causes the color to change from green to brown.

What makes a good coffee roast?

A good coffee roast is characterized by its taste, but it can also be recognized visually by the roasted beans. The bean must get an even, smooth surface during roasting. If it is not properly roasted by stopping too early, the skin will look wrinkled. The taste is then dull from a certain point of taste perception.

If the bean is roasted too long or too quickly, it can burn and this means that it does not have a flavor culture that reflects the cherry, but tastes one-sided and flat.

Who invented coffee roasting

Coffee comes from East Africa Ethiopia. Here the coffee cherry was discovered by a goatherd and coffee has been roasted there for about 900 years. This culture of roasting at home has survived to this day in East Africa. On the coast of Somalia, the Swahili in Kenya and in Sudan. With the Ottomans, coffee came to Vienna in the 18th century and has survived to this day.
Also in Germany at the beginning of the century there were many more small roasting plants than today and roasting individual hand-made roasting pans for the home. In our roasting seminar we continue the tradition and would like to show how to roast good coffee at home
