FOUNDATION TO PROFESSIONAL
The Roasting Foundation course gives the learner an understanding of the roasting process, including the physical changes that take place during the process and how to control sensory aspects of the coffee by roasting light and dark. You will also gain an understanding of the basic structure of the roasting machine, general maintenance and fire prevention.
This course builds on the Foundation course. It is ideal for someone who has roasting experience and the desire to gain a deeper understanding of the roast profile, how the profile relates to colour, the relationship between roast profile and sensory expression, and the impact of development time. Learn the physical and chemical changes as well as the basic thermodynamics and heat transfer that occurs during the roast. You will also be introduced to sample roasting and a review of safety and maintenance protocols in the roasting plant.
The course builds on the Intermediate course. Learners will gain advanced skills in profile development and sensory analysis evaluation. Dive deep into a wide range of topics, including control and color matching, use and configuration of roasting software, molecules involved in browning reactions, gas formation during roasting process, visual identification of roasting defects, blending, quality control as well as an exploration of production options to help meet differing customer preferences.
