Savoir faire
Roasting coffee is a very delicate operation. It transforms the chemical and physical properties of green coffee beans into roasted coffee products. The roasting process is basic to producing a savory cup of coffee.

When roasted, the green coffee bean expands to nearly double its original size, changing in color and density. As the bean absorbs heat, the color shifts to yellow, then to a light "cinnamon" brown, and then to a rich dark brown color. When the temperature reaches 200° C, the beans will crack like popcorn exploding in the heat and oils appear on the surface of the bean. In general, the more oils there are the more flavors coffee will have. There are two moments of "explosion", which are used as indicators for the reached level of roast. The roasted beans will continue to darken and to release oils until they are removed from the heat source. The know-how of

Cafés BEN YEDDER plays on the mixture of different varieties and the time-heat balance!
