If you don’t care for the oven, electric roaster, or just want to take your coffee roasting outside but don’t have access to a birch bark sizzling, red-hot coal burning, leg hair smoldering fire then this method is for you! This is not only a great way to embarrass your neighbour’s manhood, but to also get that grill time you have been seeking all week.
One of Calgary Heritage’s primary goals is to expose the art of roasting to the public yet it stands as one of the biggest hurdles faced throughout our journey. Telling people about how amazing the home roasting experience can be is one thing, but we hope that putting our money where our mouth is will be much more effective. Jamie and I initially learned how to roast coffee in a cast iron pan over an open fire, fortunately for us and our viewers we have also roasted coffee using a variety of other methods too. Today we wanted to expose our audience to a tried and trued method, and one we stand behind. Welcome to oven coffee roasting!
One of Calgary Heritage’s primary goals is to expose the art of roasting to the public yet it stands as one of the biggest hurdles throughout our journey. We want everyone to know that they have the ability to conquer such a fulfilling and unspoken skillset. Before the industrial coffee-roasting shift had occurred post World War I, everyone and their dog were roasting coffee at home. It was ritual, it was cheaper, and it was part of our HERITAGE. At Calgary Heritage Roasting Company we want to bring this back, we want to dig deep down and grab onto our roots because we all know that is what creates not only our culture but our identity too. As a society we allow skills like these to slip through our fingers all for a sliver of convenience, when in reality it is significantly inconvenient.
