  • Description
  • Specs
  • Accomplished coffee professional, writer and consultant, Scott Rao, has a brand new book to help improve your coffee roasting knowledge and skills. Coffee Roasting: Best Practices is the culmination of Scott's 25 years of roasting and consulting. It's the most advanced guide ever written about expert-level coffee roasting. There is little overlap with The Coffee Roaster's Companion, which focused on the basics of roasting and different roasting machines. Coffee Roasting: Best Practices focuses solely on advanced techniques to craft and control roast curves, with numerous pages devoted to strategies to avoid "ROR" crashes and flicks, baked coffee, unnecessary roasty-ness, and other roast defects. This book sets the standard for third-wave coffee roasting methodology.

Great information and an easy read


Been roasting by temp, looks, noise, and smell for over a year. Started roasting on a roaster that tracks the roast and this book has really helped me understand what to look for and what I can do to improve my roasts. Good buy :)


This book give knowledge and motivation about coffee roasting.

Worth the price

Some insightful information delivered in straight forward manner with an interesting look into the 1% of the known coffee roasting universe. Not a definitive "how to" guide but some useful recomendations on procedure, between batch protocals and the like. Would suggest it to anyone looking to improve their roasting.

Great book

Good resource if you are new at roasting. It is geared towards drum roasting and arguably more for larger drums but the principle is the same. Glad I picked it up.
