Roasting Old Green Coffee Beans

Beans
Roasting old green coffee beans can be a learning experience. The moisture percentage of the beans has reduced and all of the wonderful flavors we once experienced are slipping away every day that passes. In today’s video, we use this opportunity to experiment with the remaining coffee and try to squeeze out a fruit bomb using my Hive digital dome coffee roaster. I make some mistakes along the way which we will talk about.

I roast coffee on my Mill City 500 gram commercial coffee roaster every week. I also use a Behmor and a hot air popcorn popper to roast some great coffee. Join me as we roast, brew and cup coffee every week at home.

Do you roast coffee at home? Do you craft single serve coffee and if so, what brewing method do you like? Please share your comments and be sure to like this video!
