Creating a Roast Profile
This class builds on students’ foundational knowledge of the roast process. During this hour, we will be discussing and tasting coffees roasted to explore how changes to the individual elements of the roast profile result in changes to the cup profile. We will discuss the three roast stages and how to manipulate them in order to better understand how to tweak your roast profiles or create new ones.
