Behind the Scenes: Coffee Roasting

Today, we learn about the ins and outs about coffee roasting. From getting the samples and ensuring that the quality is high to roasting the coffee beans until perfection. In general, roasting coffee is by no means an easy thing to do, so the folks over at October Specialty Coffee were kind enough to show us how they do business.

Coffee comes from a cherry (so technically it’s a fruit). In its raw form it smells nothing like the coffee you are used to, and in fact the color is green with a fruity aroma. Once picked and in the roasters hands, it has to have its skin removed for proper roasting. After that, the beans are put into a roaster where the temperate, time, and amount put in are all factors that dictate the taste of the coffee. A lot of work goes into making your coffee!
