Event Details

Equilibrium Master Roasters & Collingwood Coffee College are joining forces to bring to the Roasters of Australia - ‘Firestarter’: A Professional Development Workshop Series. 

 

Firestarter is an educational and professional experience day exploring your contribution, as Roasters, to practicing coffee as a value-add measure so that your customer’s experience with your coffee contributes a positive impact to the coffee industry.

 

Catering and resources, treats and coffee, and more coffee, all included. Join in and you only need to bring comfortable shoes!

 

Collingwood Coffee College, the education hub of Proud Mary Coffee Roasters, is where Anne Cooper (Master Roastress) & Lisa Feeley (Master Extractress) will facilitate a full day of theory and practical activities such as Pimpin’ Profiles exploring the range of coffee origins and relevant roast profile approaches, and Exploring Espresso Extraction where roasters will further enhance their skills on how to best extract multiple espresso offerings so that they can continue to contribute the value added measure of amazing coffee for their customers.

THE DAY

WORKSHOP #1: PIMPIN PROFILES 

Anyone can show you how to turn beans brown but, at EQMR, Roastress Coops will show you how to successfully roast!

With an intensive session for experienced roasters, we will focus on roast profiling and really nailing those roast profile parameters and roasting approaches for specific coffee origins with specific properties ie: espresso vs filter vs batch size vs screen size vs process vs moisture vs density. This will also be followed by a cupping and analysis session in order to tie all the relevant data together and discover/confirm which part of the profile produces what flavour for a particular roast style on a specific origin/bean. 

WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES

By the end of this workshop you will be able to:

  1. Confirm your understanding on how to measure and collect green bean data (ie: moisture, density etc.)
  2. Better understand the different ‘Roast Styles’ and their accompanying ‘Roasting Parameters’
  3. Develop a new Roast Profile and/or ‘Dial’ in a new green bean using all the relevant green bean data and a particular roast style
  4. Understand where to apply & use the relevant green bean data at certain points in the roast profile
  5. Better understand the use of and interpretation of manual profiling logging vs data profiling logging with Cropster
  6. Identify, understand and use the relevant roast parameters for a particular roast style on a specific green bean
  7. Cup, Analyze and Understand where certain flavours are coming from in the roast profile for a specific bean/origin and particular roast style 

WORKSHOP #2:ESPRESSO EXTRACTION

During this workshop we open up espresso extraction and look at what you need to know to pull together a good, balanced recipe. To achieve good, we look at the relationship between strength and extraction yield what happens with key parameters of a recipe and how various roasts require various extraction recipes.

Lisa Feeley, Training Manager at CCC will identify how your roast impacts what and how you extract. We talk ratios and other variables you need to consider, such as grinder and water temperature to showcase your house-blend the best way.

You’re welcome to bring a kg of your house-blend along and we can try, test and clarify! 

WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES

By the end of this workshop you will be able to:

  1. Understand the relationship between strength and extraction and the impact and value of brew ratios.
  2. Use EK 43 Mahlkonig to extract espresso using various brew ratios to show how much of strength there is compared to extraction yield % in the espresso.
  3. Calibrate a refractometer with distilled water to read 0.
  4. Use the refractometer to analytically measure an espresso TDS % and chemistry formula to identify the extraction yield % to determine if the ratio is producing an ideal espresso extraction with taste profile and numbers referring to extraction % chart.

FIRESTARTER DELIVERY

This unique, professional development opportunity is facilitated with a blend of theory and practical activities for you to try, test and clarify. Each learner will also receive valuable resources for further practicing in the workplace.
