Post Coffee - Home Roasting Vs Modern Roasting Techniques
Coffee - Home Roasting Vs Modern Roasting Techniques
by: Jim Curry

Almost 70 years ago, roasting coffee in the kitchen at home was as much a part of the daily routine of people as watching TV is ours now-a-days. Most of the people at that time could not afford to buy roasted coffee so they relished roasting coffee at home with the help of cast iron stoves, over their fireplaces or out on their porches. A coffee roasting shop at that time was considered a luxury enjoyed only by the urban neighborhood dwellers.

People actually cherished the freshly roasted coffee and its exotic flavor and aroma. Even if there were any roasting shops, people preferred the taste of home roasted coffee because they felt that the former resulted in a cup of swill. Green coffee beans were stored by the people and roasted on a daily basis as per their requirements.

However, with the increase in interstate commerce, mammoth packaging of foods became possible and thus roasting companies became famous. Now, fewer raw materials like green coffee beans entered homes as families began to prefer packaged foods that not only saved time but also labor. In fact, a vote from people of that time would have revealed that coffee was not a bean but a brown powder.

However, fortunately, in the late 60s and 70s, there started a ‘back to the basics’ movement. People resorted to the forgotten and dead industry of coffee roasting again. Coffee is the second most traded commodity after oil on earth. The proliferation of coffee shops and houses has reached such enormous proportions that certain neighborhoods have actually placed a ban on any new coffee cafes.

It is also important to note that although packages coffee is better roasted and better packages yet it is not fresh as the coffee roasted at home. In order to raise their sales, freshness is not paid attention to by these companies. You would also be interested to know that coffee is best only between 4 to 24 hours of roasting. This is because during this time, it emits sufficient quantities of CO2 to keep the oxygen away that makes it stale. Moreover, whole beans placed in an airtight jar placed in jar can remain fresh for 5 days. So, if you do not have a neighborhood roaster, be adventurous enough to roast your own coffee at home.

Trust us; it is as easy as making popcorn and a great pleasure as well. It is cost-effective as well for you can roast coffee at home at a much lesser cost than $10/pound for two week old coffee. Moreover, green coffee from various stores costs half the price of roasted beans. Isn’t that exciting? Why just be couch potatoes and rely on ready-made packaged stuff. Why not make your own food and enjoy doing that? So grab this opportunity of ‘back to the basics’ and start roasting coffee at your very own home. We bet that you will love the experience!
