Roasting is the action of exposing coffee to high heat in order to release all its aromas and flavors.
Discovered by the Ethiopians in the 14th century, this technique has been constantly improved over the centuries to bring out the coffee's full flavor.
And while technological advances have made it possible to automate much of the process, only a human, using their senses and experience, can determine the perfect level of roast.
Some roasters use additional ingredients during preparation, such as butter or sugar, to add an extra touch to the coffee.
Also the temperature and duration of roasting will play a major role in the flavors of the coffee.
Obviously the techniques, ingredients and intensity of roasting are specific to each roaster and all this alchemy brings a unique touch to each coffee, like a sort of signature.
