Coffee Roasting Basics

  • Pursuit Supply Company 4316 West Irving Park Road Chicago, IL, 60641 United States (map)

Guided by Portage Park resident and shop owner, Adam Glick, participants will learn the basics of coffee roasting and leave ready to roast at home. The class will cover the process from green beans to roasted and ready to grind as well as basic safety and proper roasting procedures. Participants will sample beans at various roasts and learn the signs to identify what stage your beans are in, understand the first and second crack and what to expect in the roasting process. Adam will teach participants to use visual, auditory, and olfactory senses to monitor the progress of the coffee roast. All participants will leave with a half pound of coffee you actually roasted yourself.
