There’s a lot more to roast profiling than light, dark, and medium. The exact temperature you use, when you decrease or increase the heat, how long you hold the temperature at that level for… it all affects the final flavour of the coffee.
And it’s up to the roaster to find the best profile, and then replicate it every single time.
Fortunately, Neal Wilson (N3Roaster) has made a step-by-step video tutorial to developing roast profiles. He covers it all, from understanding the charts and recording data to the roast itself, cupping, and identifying which roasts to offer commercially. Find out more below.
