What exactly does a coffee roaster do?
Unroasted coffee beans retain a lot of water when they're green. Grinding and brewing them would be impossible. You wouldn't want to consume them since they have a distinct grassy flavour.
Roasting initiates a few chemical processes that result in more appealing flavours and fragrances. When green coffee beans are exposed to high temperatures, their moisture content begins to dwindle. The coffee darkens and produces more carbon-like aromas as it brews. The bulk of the sugars break down, and the beverage becomes progressively bittersweet with less acidity as the roast develops.
How long does it take to roast coffee?
Small quantities require 10-13 minutes to roast, while big batches take 16-18 minutes to cook. Roasting a final product of one or two pounds of fresh coffee might take up to 20 or 30 minutes of your time. Keep in mind that you'll have to restart the process if you run out of coffee.
What are the benefits of roasting your own coffee?
- Know your coffee: You can get to know where the beans originate from, what the base tastes are, and what the bean went through before reaching your cup.
- Freshness remains intact: Some green beans can be kept in the refrigerator for up to a year after harvesting without becoming bad. On the other hand, roasted beans lose their flavour and perfume after only a few weeks. Buying green coffee and roasting small batches every week, or even every day, will keep your coffee fresh.
- Choose the kind of coffee you want to drink: Another significant advantage is that you can easily customise the flavour of your coffee since you choose the roast level. The roast level determines how complex (lightly roasted), balanced and earthy (medium roast), or sweet, caramelised, or smoky it is (dark roast).
Sit back on your fluffy bean bag at your vintage coffee table and relax. You can sip fresh coffee anytime you want, experiment with different coffee origins, and more with home roasting. While the learning curve can be intimidating at first, the joy of knowing that you roasted and brewed your own coffee will make it all worthwhile. Get your own coffee roaster from eBay today!
