Beginners Roasting Workshop with Rob Hoos

Thursday, August 22, 2019, 3:00 PM

A beginners roasting workshop in Portland, OR. This course is designed to work with people who have little to no experience roasting coffee and give them the framework they need to safely and successfully operate a coffee roaster. It will have a heavy practical / hands-on approach with at least 3 different kinds of roasters for the students to work with. The lecture is focused around helping the students understand the basics of green coffee, and whether for home or for business how to purchase green coffee. It takes focus on defining elements of a roast profile and how/why to record it. We investigate general roaster design to not only understand how to control it, but also how to be safe while using it. Finally, we spend some time learning about cupping and how/why to cup and score your coffees. The remainder is hands-on roasting time so that everyone has an opportunity to get their feet wet roasting. - Green coffee is provided for students to roast! - Lunch is provided on both days. - Brewed coffee will be available in the morning. Please email me concerning any dietary restrictions or questions involving the course.
