Do you want to impress that significant other you just invited in for coffee? Follow these two golden rules and they’ll be leaving thinking you’re a professional coffee roaster!
Record your roasts: Keep a table close to your roasting equipment and try to note any changes to temperature, time and technique. Then when you brew it a few days later, you’ll know how to get that flavour again. It means that one perfect cup you created won’t be lost forever.
Make only one change at a time: Did you get an exciting hint of cinnamon in your latest roast? Well, if you changed bean volume, temperature and time all in one go, then you’ll never know which one gave you that flavour. Be patient and go one step at a time.
