    Current Crop Roasting Shop Kicks Off Coffee Home Roasting and Cupping Classes
    Offering a one-of-a-kind destination for specialty coffee beans and home roasting
    NEW ORLEANS (March 14, 2023) –The first coffee roasting shop to come to New Orleans, Current Crop Roasting Shop, is now offering customers a chance to learn more about the art and science of home coffee roasting through roasting and cupping classes.
    This March, Current Crop Roasting Shop is pleased to offer an array of classes featuring an Introduction to Roasting centered around fresh roasts along with an Introduction to Cupping Basics.
    “A lot of people get intimidated when it comes to making coffee from scratch,” says Campaign Director of Product and Programming at Current Crop Roasting Shop, Catherine Mansell. “It’s not as hard as some may think, and it’s fun to add your own twist and customizations through the art of home roasting.”
    The ultimate goal of coffee roasting is to achieve the right balance between the origin character of the bean and the roast character you bring to it. In Current Crop’s Intro to Roasting Class, a coffee specialist will go over general roast levels and how to achieve those roast levels with a fresh roast air roaster. 
    Fresh Roasts are great to start off with when learning how to roast. The clear chamber allows one to see the beans going through the roast levels, hear the first and second cracks, and smell how the roast levels affect the beans.
