Coffee roasting

First of all, what is coffee roasting? Coffee roasting is the process of heating, and roasting the coffee beans to an ideal temperature for that type of coffee. This process was first recorded in the 16th century by the Arabs. However, the first large-scale commercial roasters were only registered in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The coffee roaster, or Roastmaster, needs to have total control over the variables when roasting the beans since these variables influence the quality, flavor, and final price. The amount of beans, machine temperature, roasting time, humidity, air intake, and outlet, among others, are essential factors in conditioning the best coffee.

Currently, we have three main types of roasting: dark, medium, and light. The dark roast has a shiny black color, with an oily surface, and is used for customers who like bitter coffee. On the other hand, the medium roast is brown and has a slightly sweet taste. Finally, we have the light roast, which is beige and is known for its acid content.
