Event description

Description

Coffee roasting is a peculiar blend of science and intuition. The challenge for every roaster is to develop a roasting methodology of their own, picking through the stories, science, and (sometimes overwhelming) sensory information to define coffee roasting - with all of its nuance, mystery and intuition - for themselves. To learn to roast is a never-ending process, with every roast slightly different and the experience of cupping, roasting and tasting thousands of coffees vital to a roaster's development.

As learning to roast is an on-going process, and all roasting set-ups (and, come to it, all roasts) are different, the focus of the course is on setting up a framework for beginner roasters to develop their skills, abilities and knowledge independently as well as while under instruction.

The one-day intensive course - divided into two parts - is grounded in theory but contains a number of practical and hands-on elements where roasting theory and methodology are put into practice. In the first part, we discuss sourcing, selecting and processing of the green bean, followed by grading and detecting defects of the green bean. The second half is devoted to planning and executing a roast; first on a sample and then production roaster, and is followed by a demonstration of a roaster's tools of assessment, specifically cupping.

Please advise of any dietary requirements as lunch is provided, and attendees will take home a bag of freshly roasted coffee and the comprehensive Padre Roaster’s Manual.

Equipment featured during the course includes our Proaster sample roaster and customised 15kg Probat.

In order to keep the course focussed and hands-on, numbers are extremely limited.
