Taking raw green coffee beans and turning them into delectable roasted coffee is both an art and a science. The difference between perfectly roasted coffee and a mediocre coffee can be a matter of seconds. It takes years to become an expert roaster with the ability to “read” the beans and make decisions with split-second timing.
At Common Grounds, we treasure our coffee beans and use masterful roasting techniques to bring out the best in every bean. Roasting causes chemical changes to take place as the beans are rapidly brought to very high temperatures, and brings out the aroma and flavor that is locked inside the green coffee beans. When they reach the peak of perfection, they are quickly cooled to stop the process. Roasted beans smell like coffee, and are crunchy to the bite, ready to be ground and brewed.
