    The Science of Roasting/Profiling--Books?

    I've been roasting for about four years now, selling to a very small market at about 60 lbs. per month (more of a hobby than anything). However, I just made the plunge and bought an Ambex YM-15 to try to start selling to local retailers. My experience with profiling has been based more of an art than anything, based on trial, error, intuition...and, of course, love. However, I would like to more thoroughly understand the science of the roast process so I can develop my...art!

    Any thoughts on books or articles that might point me in the right direction?

    Thanks,

    KCR

    Hello! There is not a single source to use. You will need to compile information from mulitiple sources including other roasters. My suggustion would be to start with this book "Home Coffee Roasting" by Kenneth Davids.

    Already read it and use it as a reference, but the majority of it is introductory info. Thanks anyway!

    There are profile roasting classes you can take and there are also books on coffee chemistry. I think you would enjoy the book by Illy- Espresso Quality...

    There are articles archived in Roast Magazine that are pretty good to read.
    You want cream and sugar?
    NO COFFEE FOR YOU! NEXT!

    KCR,
    Check out Willheilm Boot's website. He has penned at least four articles for Roast Mag. His company is called Boot Coffee Consulting. I think you will enjoy reading his material.
