Bach Kaffee Roster Meister Series
Today is the International Coffee Day in Japan and for certain I would like to share something about coffee roasting on the day.
Last year in September I had the opportunity to visit SCAJ 2017 conference.
At the day of my visiting, I noticed there was a counter for VIP guest who didn't need to pay for their ticket. At the time I made a wish that I would like to get one of those pass in 2018. Not because of the ticket was expensive or not, but as a symbolic that I am part of coffee society here.
I am glad to say this wish had come true :)
In SCAJ 2018 conference this year, there is a new session of coffee roaster display.
I was so happy that the roast master, Tomomi Sano san, allowed me to roast together with her to try the Bach Kaffee Roster Meister 2.5KG which has a sell price of 3,470,000JPY!
We roasted 1kg Colombia bean with the following profile:
180 degree 800 rpm, gas pressure around 2.2kPa. After 5 mins, take the first sample set.
When the temperature reach 180 degree, change win spin to 1000 rpm.
At 200 degree, increase to 1200 rpm.
Incidentally, we got some smoke so stop at 207 or 208 degrees with 1200 rpm.
The coffee bean tasted with lightly sour and bitter but smooth taste.
