This highly anticipated follow up book to his Barista and Filter books touches on almost all aspects of coffee roasting and presents Scott's ideas he has formed from years of practical experience.
As a roaster and a consultant over the past nineteen years, Scott Rao has had the opportunity to cup and view the roast data for each of more than 20,000 batches roasted on a variety of machines by various methods. About five years ago, he spent several days poring over reams of roast data in an attempt to find the common elements in the best batches I’d ever tasted.* To be clear, I’m not refer-ring to “really good” batches. I focused only on the data from batches so special that I could “taste” them in my memory months or years after physically tasting them. That effort yielded what I think of as the “commandments of roasting.”
This book is both for the seasoned roast master looking for more information on common criteria that affect a roasts but also for those looking to get into roasting.
