Roast your own coffee!
We offer the unique opportunity to roast your own coffee. You will receive a crash course on the growing and roasting processes. Then, you will work the machine controls and adjust during the roast to develop your (or the gift recipient’s) favorite flavor profile.
During the roasting process, a host of chemical reactions occur when the coffee bean is heated – most notably sugars caramelize and moisture vaporizes, creating a popping sound like popcorn. The process takes between 12 and 15 minutes, during which the roaster adjusts flame, airflow, drum rotation in order maximize desired flavor, aroma, acidity, and body.
We have computer software to track the development on each of your roasts. You will receive printouts of your roast profile as well as professional photos.
Cost is $50/person for a 1-hr course, which includes 3 12oz. bags of coffee (a $36 value), your profile sheets, and 5 high resolution photos.
