Coffee Roasting Made Simple
Coffee Roasting Made Simple
A Guide Through Philosophy, Principles, Recipes, Profiling, Sample Roasting & Everything in Between
About the Book
This book is about practical hands-on coffee roasting.
It discusses profiling and how to profile sample roast, how to avoid over- and under-roasting, how different variables in roasting change flavours in the final cup, principles that govern the roasting process; and a lot more.
This book gives you all the necessary tools so you can successfully develop your own roasting profiles and edit the ones presented here. The same tools will help you to become a better, smarter, and more consistent coffee roaster.
It’s a condensed collection of Raimond's 12 years coffee roasting experience with Specialty Coffees.

Gringo Nordic Coffee Roasters - Sweden
"I can only wish that this new book on roasting by Raimond Feil would have been available when I started roasting. The best books are always the ones where a passionate personality meets experience, and this is certainly one of them."
Alt Wien Kaffee - Austria
"Great read so far and definitely a super Xmas gift for coffee lovers. Very well written, refreshingly uncomplicated, non-magisterial, thoroughly usable hands-on book that comes from the heart. Will recommend it to roaster cubs and fellow Loringists alike!"
QC & Coffee Roasting @ Rebelbean - Czech Republic
"This Book can really push beginners in the right direction as well as provide advanced roasters with new ideas and thoughts on roasting craft."
Michael Butterworth Consulting & TheCoffeeCompass.com - Kentucky, USA
"Reading Feil’s book reminds me of the practical, hands-on education one gets when they first start working under a veteran coffee roaster. In my estimation, it’s a valuable addition to the existing literature on coffee roasting. Veteran and aspiring roasters alike will benefit from reading this book."
Roaster @ Silverskin Coffee - New Zealand
"Loving this book. Raimond has packed this book full of thoughts provoking material, making me take a step back and have another look at how I'm doing things. Such a welcome addition to the collection of coffee literature."
Operational Manager @ Coffee Shots / Amsterdam Roasters - Netherlands
"I really enjoyed it! You have done a great job of putting together such a complicated topic in such a simple but full of important info way! I admire how exactly and mathematically you planned the roasting of all the coffees. There must be a lot of knowledge of all the variables behind, and this will be my next challenge: to plan the roast and being able to predict, and your book was really inspiring for this."
A pilot who is passionate about coffee - SCAE member - Home barista - UAE
"This Roasting book is an ocean of information and I guess everyone who is interested in roasting has to read the book."
A & L Kaffa - Texas, USA
"The book is on fire! I really like your approach. I want that juiciness I’ve experienced here and there. And now that it is repeatable is exciting. - It's been almost a year since I found your video on youtube and it has really changed my coffee career. I've been roasting tasty coffee ever since. It takes the guess work out of everything but I can still be creative with my approach and having a lot of fun."
