ROAST LIBRARY FOR IKAWA SAMPLE ROASTER

Here are a few of our favourite roast profiles that you’re welcome to try to fast-track your learning and experimentation. We’ve found it useful to have a ‘start point’ to try, then adapt from, based on your tastes and coffees you’re roasting.

Give us a shout with any feedback, or to share a profile of your own – support@ikawacoffee.com

To open these profiles, you must be using an iPad or iPhone with the IKAWA Pro app installed.

IKAWA Pro App, available to download on App Store

Note: these profiles are for the Sample Roaster only and are not compatible with the IKAWA At Home system as they are based on exhaust temperature, rather than input temperature.

NEW ADDITIONS

Here are some of the latest profiles we’ve been using:

TIM WENDELBOE

Tim Wendleboe Tamana Colombia 50g

“I have a standard profile that I use whenever I am unsure about the coffee that I am roasting. I like to keep it simple and this particular profile has worked on many different coffees from many different origins. It is made for 50g samples.”

We know of other ‘champions’ who’ve roasted on IKAWA at competitions, but don’t have many of the profiles!

IKAWA

IKAWA Natural Ethiopia Medium Roast

Developed for Natural Ethiopian coffee, 50g. This profile takes the coffee to a slightly darker roast than some people like for sample roasting, but nice curve to adapt for natural coffees.
