Time to roast some tasty Costa Rica Direct trade coffee. We bought this coffee directly from the farmer, Carlos Arrieta.
Adding the green coffee.
Here we have the green coffee roasting, it's kinda hard to see. It's beginning to carmalize the sugars inside the bean.
Here we check the progress, observing things such as color and smell.
Once it goes thru it's 1st crack the coffee is ready and emptied into the cooling tray. Rapidly cooling the coffee is important
