How to Roast Coffee Beans in the Oven
If you’re wanting to give your coffee a more flavorful, robust taste, roasting your beans at home is a great way to achieve this. Here’s a step by step guide on how to roast your own coffee beans in the oven.
Things You’ll Need
- Unroasted coffee beans
- Baking sheet
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- Oven mitts
- Cooling rack
Step 1: Heat Your Oven
Preheat your oven to 400°F. Avoid using temperatures over 475°F as this can lead to burning the beans.
Step 2: Add the Beans
On a large baking sheet, spread the beans out in a single layer. Drizzle the beans with olive oil and stir them to ensure they’re evenly coated.
Step 3: Roast the Beans
Place the baking sheet in the oven, and leave the beans to roast for 10-11 minutes. After the time is up, take the baking sheet out of the oven and stir the beans to evenly distribute the heat.
Step 4: Cool Down
Once the beans have finished roasting, lay them out on a large cooling rack so they can cool down.
Step 5: Store Your Coffee
Make sure the beans are completely cooled before you store them in an airtight container. This will help to preserve their flavor and aroma.
Now you can use your freshly-roasted beans in your daily cup of coffee. Enjoy!
