To roast beans for the coffee machine itself

The fresher the coffee beans, the tastier the coffee. So what would be better than to roast the beans at home? We explain how you can roast coffee at home and introduce a coffee maker that will do the job for you, according to the manufacturer.

Even beans roast

Coffee beans can be easily roasted in the pan or in the oven. Make sure that all coffee beans touch the bottom of the pan or tin so that they are evenly roasted. We explain how it works:

Roast in the pan

Heat a pan to 180-190 degrees and evenly distribute the green beans. Roast the beans with constant stirring for about 20 minutes. Next time, try out more or less time to find your personal favorite roast. The longer you roast the beans, the stronger and more aromatic the coffee tastes. The less roasted the beans are, the softer the coffee is in taste.

Roast in the oven

Preheat the oven to 180 to 190 degrees, spread the coffee beans evenly on a tray and push it into the oven. After 10 minutes, turn the coffee beans. Roast the beans for about 20 minutes - depending on your personal taste.

Advantages of self-roasting

  • You can find your own favorite roast.
  • Freshly roasted coffee beans will give your coffee a very special touch.
  • Enjoy the wonderful smell of coffee in your apartment when you roast the beans!

The coffee maker that roasts: Bonaverde

This innovation from Germany is not yet on the market, but has been planned since the beginning of 2014 (or longer?). The visually unappealing coffee maker should be fed with green beans, which are then roasted in a container of the machine. You can observe the process through a small glass window. A grinder then grinds the roasted beans and fresh coffee drips down into the glass coffee pot, which is very reminiscent of a filter coffee machine. The coffee maker can be pre-ordered for 399 euros (instead of 499 according to the manufacturer) on the website of the company. In itself, the project seems to be a very advanced of its kind with big plans for the future like roasting curves that you can share with family and friends. The first products are to be shipped in the summer of 2015. In July 2014, there was talk of autumn 2014. The video demo is an unprofessional video of a Chinese at a coffee fair - the manufacturers are German !? Until the product is on the market, it seems to me personally more useful and safer to roast the beans at home.
