Home Coffee Roasting methods:

  • Fluid Bed Roasting
    Fluid bed roasting is the most common technique that home coffee
    roasters utilize. This method uses a fluid bed of hot air to both heat the green coffee beans as well as agitate them.
  • Radiant Heat Roasting
    Radiant heat roasters rely on the coffee beans coming into contact with or passing close to a surface that has been heated.  Keeping the beans moving to assure an even roast is usually accomplished by a rotating drum.
  • Conduction Roasting
    Roasting green coffee beans by conduction relies on the coffee beans being in contact with a surface that is hot.  Roasting your beans in a frying pan would be roasting by conduction.  This is probably one of the oldest ways to roast coffee and is very effective.
