The Art of Coffee Roasting: Unveiling the Phases of Flavor

Welcome to Solivagant Bloom Coffee Roasters, where every bean tells a story of flavor, aroma, and craftsmanship. Join us on a journey through the captivating phases of coffee roasting, where science meets artistry to create the perfect brew. Roasted on our Mill City Roasters MCR-2 propane roaster, we utilize RoastPATH software to chart and analyze every roast to ensure the data matches our senses.

1. Awakening the Senses: Drying Phase

Our roasting journey begins with the delicate drying phase, where green coffee beans are introduced to the gentle embrace of heat. As moisture evaporates from the beans, they undergo a mesmerizing transformation, transitioning from a verdant green hue to a soft, golden yellow. This phase sets the stage for the development of intricate flavor profiles, laying the foundation for a sensory adventure.

2. The Symphony of Aromas: Maillard Reaction

Enter the enchanting realm of the Maillard reaction, where sugars and amino acids dance in harmony, creating a symphony of aromas and flavors. This pivotal stage, often heralded by the melodic "first crack," marks the transition from light to medium roast. As the beans undergo browning and caramelization, they release a bouquet of fragrances, from floral and fruity to nutty and chocolatey. Each crackling sound is a testament to the beans' metamorphosis, signaling the onset of a rich and complex taste journey.

3. Crafting Perfection: Development Phase

In the final act of our roasting symphony, the beans embark on a journey of self-discovery in the development phase. Here, the roasting maestro carefully guides them to their desired roast level, be it light, medium, or dark. As sugars caramelize and oils emerge, the beans reveal their true essence, offering a kaleidoscope of flavors and textures. From bright acidity and floral notes to velvety smoothness and decadent chocolate undertones, each cup tells a story as unique as the beans themselves.
