SCA ROASTING

SCA Roasting

You will get the chance to experience roasting coffee and taste the roast. This is a very good way for students to understand more deeply "What is roasting coffee?" You will be taught how to use internationally recognized terms to describe roasting processes and roasting machines. Along with that is to learn the different types of roasters and the physical and chemical changes of the grain during the roasting process as well as the study of the roasting profile.
