  1. Hello Friends, A large percentage of Americans start every single day with at least one cup of coffee, making coffee big business in the United States and abroad. But before coffee can be ground up for use in the home coffee pot, the beans must be expertly roasted to bring out flavor. People passionate about coffee and looking to change careers, may be interested in learning more about becoming a professional coffee roaster. Practice at home. Many professional coffee roasters are self-taught and then find work in the field or start a specialty coffee roasting business. Coffee roasting is not difficult, but does require skill and attention. Insert beans into the hopper compartment above the roaster. When the roaster reaches an ideal temperature for heating the beans (often around 200 to 225 degrees Fahrenheit), the beans are dumped into the rotating roaster. Check the bean's progress as they roast. Pull out the tray to collect a small sample. Confirm the beans are roasted to the desired darkness (the amount of time depends on the particular roast), remove the beans to a cooling tray. After the beans cool, grind for coffee. Thanks and Regards, Rick Warren     
  2. Hello Friends, How much coffee beans do i need to make a full pot? I want to buy someone some coffee beans and i am not a coffee drinker. How much do I need to buy? I want to buy them a couple flavors so i figure I need just enough to make one pot of coffee. Thanks In Advance, Rick Warren
  3. Hello Friends, Grinding plays a key role in the art of making good espresso. As almost-boiling water filters through ground coffee beans, the reaction between bean and water gives life to espresso. At-home baristas can choose from a wealth of grinders, from affordable manual models to expensive pro-quality devices. Ultimately, the "best" grinder comes down to the needs, preferences and budget of each consumer. However, opinions from professional reviewers and aficionados separate some grinders from the pack. Thanks and Regards, Rick Warren

  5. Hello Friends,   While buying directly from Brazil requires you to become an importer, getting coffee direct from Brazile without having to go through you grocery store or put down a lot cash is possible by going through a roaster. A roaster buys the beans directly from the country of orgin and roasts them in-house before selling them to the consumer. The coffee from groarcy store had already been roasrtered and ground, and is then packaged. This can take months, giving the taste of the coffee plenty of time to change and weaken. Cutting out the middle man, therefore, allows you to have a bteer cut of coffee. Here's how to skip over the middle man all together.   Thanks a Lot, Rick Warren
  6. Hello Friends, Some basic requirements must be met to roast coffee beans properly in the oven. Your oven must heat the beans to temperatures between 370 and 540 degrees F. During the roasting, the beans cast off their outer skin, known as chaff, so they should be handled properly to avoid a mess. After roasting, the beans should be cooled down quickly. 1. Open windows and doors so that the kitchen is well ventilated. 2. Preheat oven to 500 to 540 degrees F. 3. Spread the green coffee beans over the surface of the baking pan. The pan should have holes in the bottom for air circulation. The beans should only be one layer deep. Place the pan on the middle rack in the oven. 4. Roast beans for 15 to 20 minutes until you reach the desired roast. If the process takes more than 20 minutes, roast the next batch at a higher temperature. 5. Listen for cracks while the beans roast. As water evaporates, steam is being forced out of the beans. If you take the coffee beans out after hearing the initial crack, you will end up with a light roast. If you wait until the next crack, your beans will turn a dark brown and provide a more full-bodied flavor. 6. Take the beans out of the oven and pour them gently into a metal colander. Stir the beans to remove the chaff. Pour the beans from one colander into a second colander, continuing back and forth from colander to colander, to accelerate cooling. Thanks and Regards, Rick Warren  
  7. Hi Community,   Green coffee bean extract is chocked full of powerful anti-oxidants similar to those found in grape seed and green tea. Green coffee beans contain polyphenols, which act to reduce free radicals in the body. All coffee beans include chlorogenic acid, a compound that absorbs free radicals, which can lead to cancer. However, green coffee beans contain a great deal more of this chlorogenic acid compound. Roasting the beans removes some of these properties. Best Wishes, Rick Warren   Coffee Classes
  8. Hello Guys,   Coffee is a beloved beverage of many. If the idea of beginning the day without a hot cup of coffee is one you could not envision or bear, then you are likely one of the many coffee lovers who enjoy a good cup of coffee at least once a day. One way to take your coffee to the next level is to grind your own coffee beans. Learn how to grind whole beans to make sure you are grinding them to the proper coarseness for the best cup of coffee.   Best Regards Rick Warren
