Event Details

Royal Coffee is proud to announce our fourth installment of Crown on the Road, coffee courses & events coming to a city near you!

Join us while we anticipate the opening of The Crown: Royal Coffee Lab & Tasting RoomThese courses are a must take for production roasters, home roasters, green coffee buyers & aspiring coffee professionals.

Green Coffee Analytics plus Roasting Styles & Impact on Flavor with Chris Kornman & Jen Apodaca

This two-part, day-long interactive class lays the groundwork for thorough understanding of green coffee quality’s impact on roasting, and how these theories can be practically applied in three distinct roasting philosophies. Lunch & snacks will be provided.

Green Coffee Analytics is highly recommended for roasters and green buyers. Course work will move beyond simple analyses methods to highlight specifics of how a coffee’s physical quality affects global trade, roasting methods, and flavors. The course includes detailed analysis and three tasting sessions to dive deep into the importance of Screen Size, Density, and Moisture Content & Water Activity. After completing the first half of the class, you’ll:

  • Be able to implement green coffee analysis methods in your place of work
  • Understand the relationship of green quality to global trade to make better decisions
  • Utilize green quality to your benefit to make informed choices during roasting

Roasting Styles & Impact on Flavor – Looking to add some skills to your roasting tool kit? Here, you’ll learn three distinct roasting theories. We will demonstrate how to apply them in a drum roaster and evaluate their success on the cupping table with several coffees of varied origin, density, screen size, and moisture content. Students will be introduced to the following roasting theories:

  • Keeping the Rate of Rise in Constant Descent – Scott Rao
  • Elongating the Maillard Reactions for Body – Rob Hoos
  • Resting after First Crack – the “S” Curve technique by Ed Leebrick

About the Instructors

Chris Kornman, Education and Lab Manager, Royal Coffee, Inc.:

Chris Kornman is a seasoned coffee quality specialist with a decade of experience working with Geoff Watts as a cupper, educator, green coffee buyer, and roaster. Chris logged thousands of miles and hours across the coffee lands in East Africa and Brazil, though lately his focus has been developing educational curriculum and written media for The Crown: Royal Coffee Lab & Tasting Room. Whether to a room of 300 Anacafé members in Guatemala City, 100 attendees at the Roasters Guild Sensory Summit at UC Davis, or one-on-one training, his passion for education knows no boundaries. Chris rides a 1986 Schwinn Prelude, plays Washburn B-17 5-string banjo and Bach Stradivarius Bb trumpet, and always carries a Frisbee – just in case.

Jen Apodaca, Director of Roasting, Royal Coffee, Inc.:
