The National Coffee Association shares its guide to delicious coffee roasting. See my top takeaways from the article underneath.
- Roasting is the process that turns soft green coffee beans into glorious crunchy dark beans ready to be ground and brewed
- Years of training are involved in timing the roast for perfectly flavored coffee, and mere seconds can be the line between a great batch and a ruined one to throw out
- There are four main color ranges (light, medium, medium dark, and dark) which beans are roasted to; this, bean type, and geographical location can create a world of difference in the final flavor
