E121 | E122 Roasting Series: Home Roasting

Episode 121 & 122: Home Roasting

Home roasting is a fast growing market (remember what coffee consultant Scott Rao had to say AND coffee historian Professor Jonathan Morris). I can't blame the market, in fact, I'll probably be part of that growth very soon! So let's dive right into the topic of home roasting with two very special guests.

E119 | E120 Roasting Series: What Goes on the Bag? (Part I & Part II)

Episode 119 & 120: What Goes on the Bag?

Bag design is a bit of a topic in more ways than one. It is sort of an endless topic because it is a topic on art that trickles from design into marketing and thus affects sales. If you ignore bag design, you ignore the value of your brand. Is there a right or wrong way to tackle bag design? Find out with two of our favorite designers in the industry, Todd Purse of Brandwine Coffee Roasters and David Salinas of Department of Brewology.

E117 | E118 Roasting Series: Roasting Basics (Part I & Part II)

Episode 117 & 118: Roasting Basics

There is not much basic about Roasting Basics. It is simple yet complex. It's sort of like a really tasty salad balanced with the salt, the fat, and the acid. This isn't necessarily the "main course" of coffee roasting, but it certainly is a starter. Scott Rao told us that he would love to talk about Roasting Basics on the show. That's basically what happened and here we are. If you aren't familiar with Scott, please go back and listen to this episode (it's an oldie but a goodie).

E116 | Roasting Series: Equipment & Philosophy

Episode 116: Equipment & Philosophy

First question, "Where do you start buying" with regard to starting a roasting operation? Now check out this question, "How do you modulate the flavor profile of coffee in roasting?" These are no small matters, and we needed someone with loads of experience who speaks the human language to get this conversation rolling. Thankfully, Rob Hoos (coffee roasting consultant) agreed to join us on the show. Oh, and by the way, he is the author of the book Modulating the Flavor Profile of Coffee: One Roaster’s Manifesto so don't sweat that second question.

Here to give you a more nuanced story about coffee exporters and the supply chain is our guest Alejandro Cadena, the President Of The Board Of Directors at Asociacion Colombiana para la Excelencia del Cafe and CEO of Caravela Coffee.
