Rob Hoos: Profile Roasting Workshop
3 days in PORTLAND, OR USA 8am to 2:30pm Join Rob Hoos, Roasting Consultant, Author, and Director of Coffee at Nossa Familia Coffee, for a hands-on roasting workshop. This event is for professional roasters who are already roasting coffee, but would like to focus on their profile development and work with their coffee to make positive changes. The course will involve three intensive days of roasting, cupping, and critical thinking. Small class sizes, hands-on approach, and detailed information make this a great fit for most roasters. Each student should bring a 12oz bag of a roasted coffee they would like to work with, and 7 KG of the same coffee green. The goal will be to take students through requisite background information on coffee roasting, heat transfer, profile roasting, and profile manipulation, while applying these principles in real-time to their coffee. Please note that lunch and a light breakfast are provided. Please email me with any dietary restrictions / concerns you may have otherwise I will assume everyone is an omnivore and has no food allergies. Attendees can expect to work with the following equipment during the workshop:- Loring s7 Nighthawk- US Roaster Corps 3 KG- 600g Victory Roaster (Modified)- 2x Ikawa Professional- Color Track Bench Model- Lightells Colorometer- Sinar Moisture Meter Course Schedule: Day 1: 08:00 - 09:00 Coffee and Pastries + Lecture: Profile Roasting Practices09:00 - 10:00 Lecture: Introduction to Physical and Chemical Changes During Roasting10:00 - 11:00 Hands on:Cup coffees brought by atendees11:00 - 12:00 BREAK FOR LUNCH 12:00 - 02:30 Hands on: Roast Coffees to Plan Day 2: 08:00 - 10:00 Lecture: Modulating the Flavor Profile of Coffee10:00 - 11:00 Hands on: Cupping Coffees11:00 - 12:00 BREAK FOR LUNCH 12:00 - 2:30 Hands on: Roasting Coffees with Planned Changes Day 3: 08:00 - 10:30 Lecture: Heat Transfer in the Roasting Machine.10:30 - 11:30 Hands on: Brewing and Extraction Principles11:00 - 12:00 BREAK FOR LUNCH 12:00 - 01:00 Quality Control01:00 - 02:30 Blending, Roasting Approaches, and Wrapping up Contact Rob@Hoos.coffee for any questions, comments, or concerns.
