Basic knowledge of roasting.
Learn to roast a professional profile, understanding the biochemical fundamentals of flavor.
* In-Person (Spain, Mexico)
Intensive course that allows participants to understand the basic biochemistry of flavor precursors from the bean to the last phase of the roasting process. They will learn about the different roasting technologies, their advantages and disadvantages, and developing trends. Participants will learn to develop a professional roasting profile in state-of-the-art roasters and will know how to modify flavor accordingly by adjusting different heat variables while understanding the biochemical effects of such variables. This course is the most complete and intensive of its kind.
