Roast Seminar

    Learn to roast coffee with the German Roasting Master!

    On the long journey of coffee, roasting is certainly one of the most fascinating stages a coffee bean goes through. After all, green coffee is anything but tasty. Rather, it is a sweetish but unfinished raw material with enormous flavour potential. It is only the roasting process that releases this potential through a series of complex chemical reactions. You d like to roast coffee yourself, learn what to consider? You always wanted to know what happens during coffee roasting? We give you the opportunity to explore exactly that in a seminar with the German Roasting Master 2018, Kilian Seger. This seminar is suitable for every home barista, coffee nerd, amateur roaster and those who simply want to learn more about the fascinating field of roasting.



    • Getting to know green coffee as a starting material.
    • Roasting theory: The nature of roasted coffee and what happens during roasting. Roasting techniques are also covered
    • Sample roasting: Common samples are roasted in different profiles on the Ikawa sample roaster
    • Quality control of the coffee beans
    • Cupping: Here roasted coffees are tasted and analysed


    Coffee Roasting: Course takes place depending on the date (please check beforehand) at 18:30 or 19:00 in our roastery at Länderweg 21 in Frankfurt-Sachsenhausen, lasts about 3 hours and is held in a small group.
