Anne Cooper | Equilibrium Master Roasters
This session is for all levels of experience and will focus on the “real life” aspects of roasting coffee. Watch as Anne Cooper runs through a profile being roasted (recorded), with live commentary from Anne discussing the various points of the profile and why she makes certain adjustments. She will be discussing what goes on during a roast and address how difficult it can potentially be to know who and what is the “right” information to learn & follow. You can expect to leave this session with clear answers to all you’ve wondered about coffee roasting and, most importantly, become more decisive and confident to start the practical application of everything you have learned during the session in your own workplace.
Chasing the Wind: Airflow in Roasting
Rob Hoos | Coffee expert, author and educator
This lecture will take a very focused look at airflow in coffee roasting. This pragmatic approach will focus heavily on practical ways to both understand what the airflow inside your machine is doing as well as understand how to use it to better control your roasting. From the importance of airflow and air temperature at the beginning of the roast to how I frequently recommend people consider adjusting their airflow (or not during roasting) I will be building a framework to help you achieve your roasting goals whatever they may be. Everyone should expect to see some case studies, talk across multiple different kinds of machines, and have a blast while talking about our passion for roasting specialty coffee.
Into the Green: Water Activity & Coffee Quality
Monica Terveer & Yimara Martinez | Sustainable Harvest
Although water activity is generally well understood in other industries, its usefulness when it comes to assessing green coffee quality is less clearly defined. In this session, Yimara Martinez and Monica Terveer will introduce Sustainable Harvest's research on water activity and discuss its relation to coffee quality -- and why you should care. If you're curious how water activity is measured, its relationship to moisture content, the extent to which it affects the cup score and shelf life of green coffee, and what implications these findings have for roasters and producers, then this session is for you.
More sessions still to be announced. Check back here for more details.
