WHAT HAPPENS...

Green coffee beans are roasted with constant stirring until they ‘pop’ twice. Roasters call these sounds ‘cracks.’ Once the beans have heated to about 375° they ‘crack’ for the first time. It sounds like matchsticks breaking, a milder report than with popcorn. At this point the beans will be lightly roasted and drinkable. Continue roasting and the roast darkens. Eventually, they ‘crack’ again at a medium dark roast. Many people prefer to drink coffee that is roasted near the ‘second crack.’ Continue roasting if you like darker roasts. Roasting takes about 15-20 minutes, depending on the method used. It can produce a lot of smoke, but a lot of smiles, too. It is not uncommon for people to exclaim, when drinking their first cup of homeroasted coffee, "there's no roast like home, there's no roast like home...
