    Profile roasting

    Hello. I am very curious about roasting profiles. If somebody were to create a coffee profile on let's say a Hottop, how do you translate it to another machine?

    You really can't... you can try and hit similar milestones (drop temp, turn time, time to browning, FC, SC/drop) but that doesn't mean they will taste the same.

    So then what do coffee roasting business do when they switch to a different machine, start from scratch?

    Yes.... start with hitting the milestones then cup and evaluate - adjust and cup and evaluate until you like the coffee.

    You need to be familiar with both roasters, how each responds to heat and air applications, and also how the thermocouples read (they are likely in different locations in the machine, and will read slightly differently because of manufacturing differences). After that just try to follow your preferred curve making adjustments for those differences. Adjust and repeat until you get what you want.

    Most roasters have such a deep sensory catalog that starting from scratch is not exactly what happens in moving to a new machine. It might take a few batches to see what differences are in roasting on the new machine, but in a way, I've been told, that it's kind of like riding a bike...an experienced roaster would know how to correct for the variations.

    check out this video concerning Profiling with a Hotop. With a add on board you can get the results you are looking for. He has several videos on the subject.

    Are you asking about roasting the coffee beans in the oven? If that's the case, then roasting and baking are pretty much the same thing - but, you're using a high temperature, and you need to stir the beans a few times to keep them from burning.

    We haven't had many discussions here, about roasting coffee in an oven, but if you're still curious, here is a website that explains how to do it.
