Description

Guatemala has long been one of the most well-known coffee growing regions in the world. The high valleys and steep volcanic slopes produce the soil, sun and rain it takes to make this rich-tasting coffee the world has come to love. Our 100% Organic Guatemalan is an artisan coffee, grown on small farms under native shade trees in the traditional way. The beans are hand-picked, hand-sorted and sun-dried in the sweet warmth of the high mountain air. Internationally respected cuppers have called its combination of rich, floral aroma and slightly sweet flavor, a coffee that is \"symphonic in the cup\" - passion and patience. The pure soul of the coffee grower's art makes this Guatemalan a taste to behold.

Story

Home-Roasting Coffee

Coffee roasting is the application of heat to coffee beans in order to create chemical reactions that develop the complex aromatic and flavor components of the bean. The goal is to achieve a delicate balance of flavor, acidity, body and aroma that is both harmonious and intriguing. It is absolutely possible to roast coffee at home and with some practice, achieve this balance. It’s most important to begin with the best green coffee available. The quality of a cup of coffee is directly linked to the quality of the green coffee from which it was roasted and brewed. As a result, it becomes imperative to choose green coffee from only the most preferred green-coffee sellers.

Equipment:

There are many different ways of roasting coffee at home. The options are only dependent on how creative and innovative you want to be. The Roasterie utilizes the Convection Method of roasting. This is where heat is applied to the coffee beans evenly, at the same rate by suspending the batch in a vortex or column of hot air, commonly known as air-roasting.

Home Air Roasters range from relatively basic to extremely high-tech. On average, they are significantly more economical than home drum roasters with the same ability to adjust time, temperature and even air flow. We recommend the Nesco Professional home roaster series because of its patented catalytic exhaust system to control smoke, and its profile roasting ability combined with an attractively low cost.
