The scent of freshly roasted coffee in the morning air awakens the desire for a cup of good coffee. The intoxicating smell of coffee brings back memories and sensations, and is a pleasurable experience for the true coffee lover and especially for a coffee roaster.
Historical tools used for roasting coffee date back to the 15th Century and have been found in what used to be the Ottoman Empire and Persia. Coffee beans were roasted in round metal or ceramic wok-like pans with long handles over an open fire or hot coals, stirring the beans regularly with a long ladle so that they would not burn.
The raw coffee beans need a hot environment to roast, and they need to be stirred and kept in motion to roast evenly.
The principles of roasting coffee have not changed throughout history, only the roasting equipment have evolved and grown in scale. There are still manual and small scale coffee roasters available for home use and smaller consumption, but commercial roasteries and coffee producers rely on large scale gas flame, hot air or electrical coffee roasters that can process huge batches of green beans at once.
