WHAT IS THE COFFEE ROASTING INSTITUTE?
The Coffee Roasting Institute is a collaboration between Bald Guy Brew Coffee Roasting Company and The San Franciscan Roaster Company. With over 60 years of combined industry experience, CRI offers individuals an opportunity to enroll in coffee roasting classes designed by roasters, for roasters. We offer coffee roasting classes at Bald Guy Brew Roasting Company in Boone, North Carolina.
Classes are designed to maximize student roasting time on one of our six San Franciscan Roasters. With a one to six instructor to student ratio, the Coffee Roasting Institute offers students an opportunity to develop the necessary skills to successfully operate a coffee roasting business.
WHAT IS OFFERED AT THE COFFEE ROASTING INSTITUTE - BLUE RIDGE CAMPUS?
We believe that coffee roasting should be an interactive experience, not taught through slideshows or lectures. Rather than offering a cookie-cutter approach to roasting, we can tailor courses to meet your educational objectives. Our "build a box" approach allows you to decide which building blocks best meet your needs so that you can roast with confidence.
We also offer Black Coffee Business Consulting for those interested in starting their own coffee roasting company. We are here to help accelerate the launch of your business in the specialty coffee industry by avoiding common pitfalls associated with entrepreneurial startups.
OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU:
At the Coffee Roasting Institute of the Blue Ridge Campus, we are committed to meet the need of individuals pursuing a career in the specialty coffee industry. Our goal is that new roasters will be able to competently roast and confidently evaluate specialty coffee by the end of class.
