Roasting coffee at home...
is a pretty highly requested topic, and I've only covered it in one video awhile back. But now, in this world where many of us are spending more time at home, it may be a good time to dig in a bit deeper. So in this video I'm breaking out one of my favorite coffee tools, the Hive and the add-on Data Dome to show you how to roast like a pro at home. This attachment for the standard Hive roaster is an affordable extra that when attached to a data logging software like Artisan or Cropster, will give you a deeper understanding of what's going on while you roast. As well as being able to create and save the holy grail of coffee roasting at home or anywhere for that matter, a profile.
For most coffee lovers roasting coffee at home is the final bastion of their coffee-nerdom. It can be hard to get into, and an expensive passion to have. So not only will I introduce you to a great option for roasting coffee at home on a budget, but also some of the more finer points. To help you better understand roasting I'll go through my roasting style, and some of the theory I try to adhere to not only here, but on full-size commercial roasters for my company Little Giant Coffee. I'll also cover some standard roasting lingo like rate of rise and charge temperature, as well as show a few defects you'll find in coffee like quakers, shells, and chipped beans.
But that's enough talk, hit play on the video above and lets get roasting!
