Coffee cherry is often red or green and doesn't taste nor look like the traditional coffee we buy at stores. It's through the process of roasting that we give coffee beans their signature color and scent. It’s clearly an extremely crucial step for coffee making. So, what exactly does the roasting process entail?
Coffee roasting is single-handedly in charge of changing the bean's color from green to the signature brown. In addition to color changes, roasting also brings out the aroma and taste of traditional coffee.
Roasting coffee brings about over 1000 aroma compounds in coffee, transforming the grass-like scent to the nutty coffee smell we enjoy. Along with bringing out the signature scent, roasting also increases the solubility of coffee. That's an incredibly crucial step because, without the solubility property of coffee, extraction would not be able to take place.
Roasting coffee is a complicated process with multiple steps. Here is how the coffee cherry is transformed into a perfectly roasted coffee bean.
Once these basic processes are done, coffee beans are placed in coffee roasters and rotated in a cylindrical machine that heats the tossed beans from below. The degree to which coffee is roasted depends entirely on its unique flavor profile. Once roasted, the beans are cooled down using a water mist process and packaged for shipping!
The different roast levels indicate how long the beans were heated during the roasting process. The varying colors from light to dark are an indication of how strong the taste and aroma of the coffee would end up being. The colors can range from a light brown roast called Cinnamon roast to a dark brown roast named Spanish roast.
