Coffee beans are seeds matured in coffee cherry. They are then processed and dried to coffee beans. Before roasting, coffee beans are green in color and have a beany and grassy aroma. Actually, green coffee beans do not smell like coffee at all. When we roast coffee, we develop 800 to 1000 different aroma compounds. These compounds make the flavor of the coffee. With roast profiling, we can affect the existence of these aroma compounds in coffee and also determine the flavour of the coffee.

If you're bewildered by the array of coffee --- ranging from $1 per pound to $12 per pound --- here's one simple trick that will help you determine if the coffee you're purchasing is high quality roasted coffee.
Just put one tablespoonful of coffee on top of a glass of ice water. If your coffee stays on top of the water and does not leach into the water after a few minutes, it's been roasted properly. If it leaches, then it's either over-roasted or under-roasted. Keep reading to find out why this trick works.
There are three parts to making a high-quality cup of coffee: good coffee beans, good roasting, and a good brewing system. Of these three parts, roasting might be the most important, followed closely by the bean production.
The roasting process produces the characteristic flavor of coffee, by causing the green coffee beans to change and expand in flavor, smell, density, and color, using several chemical reactions. Lighter roasts will allow the bean to exhibit more of its original flavor, meaning the flavor created in the bean by its variety, soil, altitude, and weather conditions. At darker roasts, the flavor of the roast itself becomes so dominant that it is difficult to distinguish the origin of the bean.

Split Rock’s coffee buyer started his career as a chef, choosing and combining flavors to create award-winning dishes. Creating a great cup of coffee for all your occasions. Coffees from around the world have flavor compounds that reflect the soil structure and altitude at which they are grown, as well as the water supply, sunlight or shade, and other growing conditions. Some coffee growing regions are known for the distinct body found in the coffees they grow; other areas produce coffees with a citrus acidity, or in rarer cases, fruity overtones.
The roasting process needs to also take other qualities into account. Some coffees are soft, with a less dense cell structure, and are best lightly roasted, while others are hard or dense, and dark roasting brings out the flavors in the bean. Our coffee buyer utilizes his culinary and coffee buying experience to create blends that work best at each roast level, carefully testing them to be sure that the flavors are balanced in the final cup. Split Rock coffee blends are sure to please the most discriminating palate.

Coffee beans in Indonesia consist of arabica, robusta and liberica.
Indonesian coffee are complex, syrupy, low acidity and typically extremely dense. which makes them ideal for roasting on the darker side.
This is largely due to the widespread practice of a traditional processing method unique to Indonesia known as "giling basah".
This semi-washed method is known commonly as wet-hulling and nearly all the coffee in the region are processed in this manner.
In short, the coffee cherry is allowed to dry on the bean for a short time before being washed and removed, imparting some of the flavors of the pulp and fruit to the bean.

In this video we will explain to you the difference between automatic and semi-automatic espresso machine. We get asked this question very frequently. The answer is one simple expression - 'Shot Timing'.
So, what is 'Shot Timing'? - It is the time taken for the hot pressurised water to pass through the coffee grounds to give you your espresso shot measuring around 30 ml.
In a Semi-automatic machine, the user has to control the timing by sight. Which means you flick the switch and start the pump, let the brew pour out, watch the brew fall into the cup, and when you have estimated visually, that the brew collected in the cup is around 30ml, you flip the switch and stop the pump. This is the procedure you need to follow in a semi-automatic machine.
In a fully automatic machine, the electronics inside have a built-in timer which is programmed to stop the pump automatically after a pre-determined time. So all you have to do is press one button to get the pump started. No visual inspection required and perfect results every time.
In worthy to mention here that the industry standard of 30ml for an espresso shot is not etched in stone.
You could, depending on your personal taste or on the basis of the coffee bean characteristics like roast or origin profile choose to have your espresso shot either less or more than the 30ml suggested shot size.
This variation in the shot quantity can be achieved in both machines.
In the semi-automatic, the running of the pump is in your control anyway.
