    I always recommend learning to crawl before you walk/run. Beg or borrow a home roaster and learn the basics. You will achieve much more when you do a commercial roasting course.

    Lastly, never ever refer to yourself as "master roaster" as there is no such term (unless w@nker is appropriate). We are all just at different levels of beginning....

    If you are close to Parramatta then google Darcy St Project. They are supported by the Parramatta city council and have just opened a brew bar and coffee school.

    If you are opening a cafe then they will be happy to share their systems with you, especially if you want to incorporate roasting into your cafe. They first started as a cafe 6 months ago and roasted their own coffee from the start. Last I heard, they were pumping out around 20kgs per week.

    They teach on a 1kg commercial roaster - the same size and type of roaster that they use to roast their own coffee in the brew bar.

    They are humble, helpful and non-judgemental guys too which is why I am recommending them to you as a first timer...

    I totally agree with you.
    How much is the course and how often does it run?
