Podcast #12 – Kees Kraakman – Roasting color

This season stands for educating and learning. Every episode a special guest joins Filip to talk about the different disciplines in coffee roasting. We want to bring in new influences and latest techniques of roasting coffee, so that you can learn something new every time you listen in the car, the roastery or just at home.

Today is the subject: color. With color, we can perceive a lot of information about the coffee we drink. But how do we read those colors and what machine or way of measuring is good or even the best? That is where Kees Kraakman will help us out in today’s episode. Kees Kraakman, a proud Dutchie, has his own roastery, owned multiple micro-roasteries and even has ties to Willem Boot as a student.
