The Ffa da roasting process

Green coffee beans are placed in the hopper before entering the roasting drum

The beans begin by absorbing energy they become yellow and then start giving off heat

Caramalisation occurs as the beans begin to deepen in colour

A cracking noise is heard as the beans hit ‘First Crack’ and now the flavours begin

Now the beans are developing, we now need to find the sweet spot

Finally the roasted beans are dropped, cooled, bagged and enjoyed
