Roast these Colombian Supremo green coffee beans to your specifications for a delicious custom coffee. Supremo denotes the highest grade of Colombian coffee - the largest, most even beans. These are green, unroasted coffee beans. They produce a rich, full-bodied brew with medium acidity.
How to Roast Coffee Beans
To roast at home we recommend using a crank style popcorn maker. You can also use a heavy frying pan or a cast iron skillet.
1: Start by heating the frying pan or roaster on the stovetop to a medium setting, or until temperature reaches about 475 F. Add up to 8 oz. of green coffee beans and close the lid and begin turning the crank (or stirring) constantly.
2: Continue stirring. Beans must be agitated constantly for an even roast. At a minimum, beans must be stirred every 30 seconds. In 4- 7 minutes the beans will start to make crackling sounds. At this time coffee smelling smoke will start to appear. If you have a fan hood, turn it on now, or open the window.
3: About a minute after the first crack check the beans color frequently (once a minute) until the beans have reached the desired roast color.
4: Once the beans are roasted to your satisfaction, immediately remove from heat and pour into a large metal colander to cool. Toss or stir the beans to remove excess chaff and speed the cooling process.
