Hands-on Roasting: Can You Taste the Roasting System?
As roasters we often forget we are in the Business of Flavor. Whether you’re new to roasting, on the hunt for a new roasting machine or an experienced roaster genuinely curious about other roasting machines, this workshop is designed to give roasters the opportunity to explore and better understand matching flavors between the various roasting systems currently available in the industry. Through lecture, hands-on roasting exercises and cupping analysis, attendees will be able to formulate their own opinion on the potential differences/similarities between roasting systems and profiles via flavor analysis. Is it the system or the profile that influences flavor?
