Have you ever wondered how the coffee roasting process works?
The process of roasting green coffee beans is considered by many to be an art that takes science, graphing, and intricate coffee roasting machines to perfect.
However, the origins of coffee roasting are much simpler! Legend has it that goats were the first to discover the joys of coffee, only they–and subsequently the Galla tribe in Ethiopa tending them–chewed the green berries raw. It wasn’t until the 13th Century that Arabs brought coffee back home, roasted them over fire, ground them up, and stirred the grinds into animal fat. They called the drink “qahwa,” meaning “that which prevents sleep.” (Source)
Many people around the world still roast coffee beans by the simple process of roasting over a heat source, and you can too!
