ROASTING MODULE -
FOUNDATION + INTERMEDIATE

Roasting gives you an understanding of the roasting process, including the roast cycle and how to control sensory aspects of the coffee by roasting light or dark. In addition, this module covers roast defects, the physical changes that beans undergo during the roasting process, as well as workspace management and lean production.

Roasting can be studied at three different levels:

  1. Foundation gives a basic understanding of the roasting process, including the roast cycle and how to control sensory aspects of the coffee by roasting light or dark;
  2. Intermediate builds on the basics covered in Foundation and covers roast defects, the physical changes that beans undergo during the roasting process, as well as workspace management and lean production.

The focus of this class is to get some basic impressions and understanding of the product and roasting process. Eventually students will be test on understanding  of the skills in designing and executing different positive roast profiles as well their sensory recognition of different roast defects. Students are instructed to do some basic distinguishing between green coffee and roasted coffee; identify change in roaster flame control, repeat the process of timing a roast temperature evolution, repeat how to weigh and record the moisture of green and roasted coffee, and identify the first crack. The students will also introduce to different chemical conditions and principles that cause the physical properties and reactions. 

This is one of the Coffee Diploma System Foundation + Intermediate modules, 15credits will be awarded after completion.
