Description

This coffee roasting course will give you a more elaborate understanding of the roasting process and how different kinds of heat transfer are at play. You will also see how different roast profiles lead to different sensory expression for the same coffee, even at the same roast degree. You will learn about roast defects and how to avoid them, and also be introduced to the basic physical changes that the beans undergo during the roasting process. Finally, there is a small appendix about workspace management and lean production.

What you will learn: 

  • Detailed heat transfer
  • Conduction/Contact, Convection, and Radiation
  • How to adjust charge temperature and flame control to avoid scorching and under development
  • Pyrolisis, Maillard reaction, and strecker degradation and their importance in roasting
  • Basics of controlling development time
  • Cooling coffee management
  • Volume, weight, and colour change
  • Sugar and acidity change
  • Roaster construction (e.g. drum, fluid bed, continuous flow)
  • Roaster ventilation
  • Workspace management
  • Additional tools for roasting
  • Cleaning maintenance and troubleshooting

Students who successfully complete the practical exam during the course must then successfully complete an online exam after the course to receive the internationally recognised SCA Roasting Intermediate certification.  SCA Roasting Intermediate certification earns credit towards the SCA Roastery Diploma.


This is a 2 day course.

Each day starts at 9am and is scheduled to finish by 6pm.  However, the course may finish earlier if students complete the tasks sooner than expected.
