We’ll find out about your roasting machine, goals, and questions to help customize the lesson based on your circumstances. Each student will have a chance to go through their machine separately and dial in roast variables so we can calibrate to your settings for each exercise.
Professional Roasting Skills
Through guided discussion of roast theory and practical advice, learn to identify patterns in your roasting system, utilize data from each roast, and discover variables that affect your product. You’ll learn skills that help great production roasters maintain quality roasts at high volumes.
Multiple instructors facilitate demonstration, instruction, and monitoring your questions in the chat box. Get real-time feedback on your roasts, share your roast profiles, and troubleshoot issues in the moment.
Each session of this course highlights a specific green selected by our lead roasting instructor Derek Delapaz. If interested, students may elect to take this course more than once, continuing their roasting education by exploring new coffees through the lens of the assigned roast exercises.
