The Roasting Professional course builds upon the concepts and skills introduced in the Roasting Intermediate course. Learners will gain advanced skills in profile development and sensory analysis evaluation. This course dives deep into a wide range of topics including green beans composition, control and color matching within different and specified time limits, use and configuration of roast profile software, chemical & physical changes due to browning reactions, gas formation during roasting process, roast profile on solubility, visual & sensory identification of roasting defects & color, blending and quality control as financial budgeting for roastery setup.
At the fourth day of the course, there will be a practical examination to evaluate the learners' ability to roast to different development time targets within narrow limits, score a roast color visually, identify common roast defects through cupping and finally distinguish between small and large differences in a roast profile to simulate production quality control processes.
Learners are also required to complete an online written exam within one month after the completion of the practical examination to ensure that students are well versed with the professional course knowledge thought during the course.
