Multiple Locations -- Roasting, Behind the Scenes: Finca Pashapa
July 30, 2014
This month, explore how Counter Culture’s roasting team determines roast levels and profiles, using one coffee (Finca Pashapa from La Labor, Honduras) as a case study.

Review the history of Counter Culture’s purchasing relationship with producer Roberto Salazar and Finca Pashapa, get a general overview of the roasting process and the tools used to assure quality control for production roasts—namely, the Agtron Scale—and then taste examples of Finca Pashapa prepared at different roast levels and profiles.

Note: start time for the event at our Chicago Training Center is 3 p.m. CDT. Thanks!
