    This course really taught me how coffee roasting works including the science behind it. We get learn how to operating a commercial roaster including safety concern. The most interesting part of the course was the actual roasting! We all get to design our roasting plans and roast the green beans ourselves! Further, we get to taste our own roasts.

    This course was very interesting to discover how coffee bean is complex. I love the part designing the roasting plant and put it in place. I cannot wait to have a date for the intermediate course.

    What a great couple of days this was! An in depth, thorough and complete introduction to the art of roasting coffee. We had the opportunity to get hands on a coffee roaster, first following a few profiles given by Jingbo and then moving on to designing our own profiles. We then cupped every batch and decided how to tweak the next to get to satisfactory results.
    I would absolutely recommend this class to anyone thinking of getting into the business or simply just curious to learn about roasting.
