Webinar: RoastID Round 1 - Roast Defects & The Essentials

Interested in finding out the results for Round 1 of RoastID - See the Curve, Match the Curve? Watch the webinar below, we reviewed the correct answers from yesterday's quiz with our good friends, Anne Cooper and Shelby Williamson. Plus, we discussed the core variables and events involved in the coffee roasting process, and common roast defects seen in the industry.

 

Presentation on the webinar can be found here.

This week we invited Anne Cooper (Roasting Consultant at Equilibrium Master Roasters) and Shelby Williamson (2019 US Roasters Champion, and Head Roaster at Huckleberry Roasters) to help speak about roast “defects” that include but are not limited to: tipping and scorching, under/over-development, under-roasted coffee, baked and/or stalled coffee. We examined how these all come about in the roasting process, what they look like on the roast curve, and how they influenced the coffee cup quality.

RoastID - See the Curve, Match the Curve is 3-week online challenge of roast curves and cup quality knowledge! Sort of like matching a cupped coffee to the correct roast curve, except, you never cup the coffee. Competitors enter an online quiz portal where we present some roast curves, and then try to match them to the correct cupping forms. This competition is more than a competition, but an educational opportunity to learn from roasting experts about how roasting techniques and decisions (and the changes in the roast curve) influence the taste of the coffee. Make sure to participate in next week's round, on May 20th at 12 am PDT.
