Hottop Coffee Roaster
Roast Profiling for the KN-8828B2-K
The KN-8828B2-K gives the user a high level of manual control of the roast profile. A profile is the dynamics of how heat is the applied to green coffee. There are a nearly infinite number of variables when roasting coffee, and to a greater or lesser extent, they all affect the taste of the finished product. In order to teach you how to get the best from your Hottop Roaster we have developed this detailed document of roast profiling on the KN-8828B2-K which includes a graph of an actual roast and all the "Hows and Whys" profiling can improve your coffee. This profile is specifically aimed at bringing out the best a coffee has to offer in terms of greater sweetness and higher acidity.

While the described temperatures will be a little different than you see on the KN-8828B2-K, this profile accentuates more of the darker flavors, such as chocolaty notes, and subdues the acidity and sweetness, at the cost of a slightly flatter taste profile.
