Course Summary

This course will provide you with a more elaborate understanding of the roasting process and how different methods of heat transfer affect the roasting process in various ways. You will also see how alternative roast profiles lead to varied sensory expressions for the same coffee, even at the same roast degree. You will also learn about roast defects and how to avoid them and you will be introduced to the basic physical changes that the beans undergo during the roasting process. Finally, there is a small appendix about workspace management and lean production. It is recommended that you have some experience of working in this field before attempting this level or have successfully passed Roasting Foundation.
