Coffee roasting stage from a temperature of 180 – 250 degrees for a period of 18 – 25 minutes. Currently, using machines to roast coffee, the time is shortened to only about 8 minutes. After roasting, the coffee beans expand by about 40 to 60%, but in return, the coffee beans lose 14 to 23% of their weight. During the roasting process, many biological reactions take place. As a result, a variety of substances are formed such as: coffee oil, coffee flavor, unsaturated fat …. and a starch that is converted into sugar and caramel to give the coffee its distinctive color. To keep the aroma of coffee, after roasting, it is necessary to cool it quickly.
