Coffee is as universal as the air we breathe. From South America to Asia back to Europe and Africa, coffee is consumed all over the world. It’s one of the most popular drinks on the market and has been for hundreds and hundreds of years. While coffee may have been around a lot longer than researchers can prove, its earliest known use was in the 15th century in Yemen, in the Sufi Monasteries. From there, the consumption of coffee can be traced in many countries throughout history.

Every year, people wait with bated breath to hear news about the next generation of iPhones. Everyday, people scroll through their brand new smartphones to learn about the next big gadget. We’re living in a culture of “new.”  We’ve grown accustomed to the lifestyle of simply upgrading as soon as something falters or breaks down. Thankfully, this culture has yet to take over every facet of life (although it does appear to be going that way). There are still artisans who use their craft to build beautiful instruments and tools that are meant to last generations. Sculptors, blacksmiths, potters, and painters continue honing their craft, inspiring those around them with meticulous design that cherishes an inexhaustible history.

Developing Your Art: The Importance of Education in Coffee Roasting

Posted by Julia Hettiger

Fri, Nov, 02, 2018 @ 09:11 AM

Art is not a stagnant entity. It’s always growing and improving, and is unique from individual to individual. Coffee roasting, similarly to sculpting or writing, is an art, every roastmaster possessing his or her own way of determining what makes a perfect roast. Much like a painter determines their own best stroke. Still, no matter your beliefs, methodology, or skill level, a roastmaster can always benefit from a high-quality coffee roasting education. The San Franciscan Roaster Company has partnered with Bald Guy Brewing to create an educational institute for roastmasters both new and experienced. The Coffee Roasting Institute was founded with the goal of providing a thorough coffee roasting education so that new roastmasters can learn the techniques needed to master their art and so experienced roastmasters can sharpen their skills and expand their horizons in coffee roasting.
