  • Where can you learn professional roasting

    I have owned a cafe for 3 years and I have a dream to be able to roast my own blends instead of relying on a coffee supplier. Who are the best people to teach me this and is it financialy viable to do this?

      That would be Serge. Hes French, so may be eccentric but pretty sure hes not electric. ;D

      Welcome to CS gruzza! Depending on where youre located I may be able to provide you with some other leads. As for being financially viable, I guess it depends on your perspectives, ie. what you want to achieve and your objectives. For example, theres an organisation based in Sydney that charge around $5k for a five day course. Havent done this myself but know my expectations would be pretty high if I were to enrol!

      Cheers!

          I Reckon Mario ( Super ) would be better. I think you really need to look at pedigree and industry standards. Perhaps lose the lab coat ads and maybe start with home roasting, CS will point you I believe. The main thing is to enjoy yourself and explore. I may sound a little flippant but Im not.

              I was thinking of doing the Boot Coffee training in San Francisco.

                Do you like Boots Coffee? If not I do not know why you would do his course. I know people who have done the course and they all have the same ( old school American) style. Why not find a good Australian roaster and learn from them, that way you can learn from somebody who knows the market and trends.

                Pm me if you want some leads.

                  Willem Boot, or Mane Alves are both quite informative. I dont know about the old school comment but some more recent roaster arrivals both in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth have done both courses. I think its going to be what you put in. No one is going to tell you how to roast on your roaster in your location, they will give you ideas and leads and teach you to cup, which is the key to roasting. You need to want to roast for the passion and perhaps not for the dollars, as it is a journey that requires attention and dedication. Also look at the SCAA as well as overseas journals and manufacturers. Ambex, Diedrich and Probat do courses as well.

                    Passion, dedication and attention I can agree with but I dont think you can dismiss the dollars when you consider the cost of the equipment if you are aiming to become a professional roaster.
                    Unless, of course, you are independently wealthy.

                      If you concentrate on the quality and are passionate enough to challenge yourself, the dollars will follow. Working out how much you can save roasting is not the answer. Not to dismiss the monetary factor but it does tend to be alot of peoples motivation.
