Coffee Roasting. What a sensory experience. I remember my very first try. I was told to roast with my eyes, ears, nose, and instinct.

Well…the outcome: 

– My 1st batch of beans – beyond burnt! I scorched them into almost disintegrating, haha.

– My 2nd batch was so light, that the beans were just as hard as pebbles.

Yes, it was a bit disheartening, but after several wasted (or as I liked to call them “trial”) samples later, the roasts were “decent” as my mentor stated.

Today, I have the privilege of doing what I love: pleasing the palate of a few and loyal customers. I don’t have the scientific knowledge to explain what happens in the endothermic nor pyrolysis stages of coffee roasting, but as a trained coffee taster, I do know what tastes great in my cup ~ and hopefully yours.

I love challenging your taste buds into a different realm of flavors and tasting experiences. Did you ever think that you can feel the elasticity of the body of your coffee? Or taste the effervescence of a single origin? There are so many ways to experience your daily dose. Which flavors will you dive into today?
