Coffee Roasting 101: From Green Beans to Aromatic Perfection

Do you ever wonder how your favorite coffee beans transform from pale green to rich, aromatic brown before ending up in your cup? At Mōzza Roasters, we take pride in our meticulous coffee roasting process, ensuring that each batch of beans reaches its full potential. Join us on this journey as we break down the coffee roasting process step by step.

Step 1: Sourcing the Finest Green Coffee Beans

It all starts with selecting the highest-quality green coffee beans. We source beans from diverse regions worldwide, each with its unique flavor profile. Our experts carefully evaluate factors like altitude, climate, and bean variety to curate the best possible selection.

Step 2: Preparing the Beans

Before roasting begins, the green beans undergo a thorough inspection to ensure there are no defective beans. This preparation ensures that only the best beans make it into our roaster.

Step 3: Loading the Roasting Machine

The beans are then loaded into the roaster. This machine is specially designed to apply consistent heat and airflow to the beans. Precise control over temperature and time is crucial to achieving the desired roast profile.

Step 4: The Roasting Process

The heart of the coffee roasting process is the application of heat. As the temperature gradually increases, the beans undergo various chemical changes. Here are the key stages:

  • Drying Phase: In the early minutes, the beans lose moisture and start turning yellow.
  • First Crack: As the beans heat up further, they emit an audible crack, releasing steam and carbon dioxide and signifying the development of aromatic compounds.
  • Development Phase: This is where the magic happens. The beans darken and develop their unique flavors, acidity, and body. They begin to take on a whole new personality.
  • Cooling Phase: The roasted beans are quickly cooled to halt the roasting process and lock in the flavors our customers expect from our signature roasts.

Step 5: Quality Control

Every batch is carefully monitored by our roasting experts who use their senses to assess the beans. They consider factors like color, aroma, and flavor to determine the roast’s quality and whether it meets our high standards.

Step 6: Packaging and Sealing

Once the beans reach their optimal roast level, they are promptly cooled and then packaged to preserve their freshness. We use specially designed bags that protect against oxygen and light, ensuring your coffee arrives fresh and flavorful.

Step 7: Ready for Consumption

Finally, our freshly roasted coffee is ready for you to enjoy. Grind the beans to your preferred coarseness, brew using your favorite method, and savor the unique flavors and aromas that our meticulous roasting process has unlocked.
