The Roasting and Blending Process in A Commercial Enviroment

by Joe Leary

I have been away a long time on this blog, which really wasn't intentional but I kind of gave up because I was writing my life's story and it pretty much seemed like no one gave a shit!
And pretty much that's the way life is I guess. However, I have been tasting, approving, blending and roasting coffee in a commercial business for over 28 years, so I have decided to continue on. The sole purpose of this blog is to educate people in the process of commercial coffee roasting, to tell my personal story, and to hopefully monetize this thing so I get rewarded for the real and truthful content I deliver on a post by post basis! I am not doing this for my health. I love coffee and always will, it has brought me a lot of success and a lot of pain and heartache over the years. I want people to buy what I suggest, but only for the right reasons. I am not going to be promoting crap on this site, but I also want people to understand that I do want to earn an income from my vast experiences in this business!
If you don't agree or don't like my purpose? Go somewhere else really I won't be offended. But I can promise you this, you won't find this information as straight up as I tell you and you will learn a few things along the way. If that's not a deal go to your local Dunkin Donuts and drink their shit coffee or better yet, go to Starbucks where they burn it beyond recognition, so you don't have any idea what you are drinking anyway!
So there you go my first post in quite awhile....... There'll be more and it will be more frequent and it will be full of information. So Hello everyone! I'm Back..like it or not

By Joe Leary/Principal/Lead Source Digital Marketer's & KYC Consulting on LinkedIn

Today I would like to explain just how much the roasting process effects the coffee we consume on a daily basis. I sincerely hope you find this article enjoyable, interesting and informative.

I am going to attempt to explain the 4 major roasting processes and what it does and doesn't do to the world's second most popularly traded commodity. Before I get started, there is something you need to know about coffee. When coffee is roasted it goes through a process, within that process the beans are altered by temperature and generally gas, LNG, electricity and even wood.

During this process the beans reach levels within that process that makes the beans, "crack". Depending on how light or dark they are being roasting they "crack either once or twice. This alters the flavor profile tremendously, so please keep that in mind while reading this article.

Unless you have been hiding in an unmarked oil well over the past few months, you already must have realized there has been a significant change in the coffee roasting industry. The $40 billion U.S. market has another bully on the block and watch out Nestle, these gentleman are playing for all the marbles.#entrepreneurship

Coffee beans, which is the second largest traded commodity in the world is apparently a target of one of the richest families in Europe. The Reimann family has not so quietly, been actively targeting U.S roasters and using a “price is not an issue" formula!



The cash is there, and they are clearly not afraid to be buying based on future earnings projections. This isn't a strange occurrence for J.A.B., they purchased D.E. Master Blenders, Douwe Egbert for a cool $10 billion. Many analysts refer to this transaction as, "a pure play coffee company".
