Green Coffee Analytics plus Roasting Styles & Impact on Flavor with Chris Kornman & Jen Apodaca

Hosted at Husky Grind, University of Washington 3925 Adams Ln NE, Seattle, WA 98105

Tuesday July 11th, 10am- 4pm

This two-part, day-long interactive class lays the groundwork for thorough understanding of green coffee quality’s impact on roasting, and how these theories can be practically applied in three distinct roasting philosophies. Lunch & snacks will be provided.

Green Coffee Analytics is highly recommended for roasters and green buyers. Course work will move beyond simple analyses methods to highlight specifics of how a coffee’s physical quality affects global trade, roasting methods, and flavors. The course includes detailed analysis and three tasting sessions to dive deep into the importance of Screen Size, Density, and Moisture Content & Water Activity. After completing the first half of the class, you’ll:

  • Be able to implement green coffee analysis methods in your place of work
  • Understand the relationship of green quality to global trade to make better decisions
  • Utilize green quality to your benefit to make informed choices during roasting

Roasting Styles & Impact on Flavor – Looking to add some skills to your roasting tool kit? Here, you’ll learn three distinct roasting theories. We will demonstrate how to apply them in a drum roaster and evaluate their success on the cupping table with several coffees of varied origin, density, screen size, and moisture content. Students will be introduced to the following roasting theories:

  • Keeping the Rate of Rise in Constant Descent – Scott Rao
  • Elongating the Maillard Reactions for Body – Rob Hoos
  • Resting after First Crack – the “S” Curve technique by Ed Leebrick
