Roast Level Chart - 7 swatches to guide roasting

Ever notice that nobody agrees on the designations for roasting levels? Confused by "City++" and "Euro Roast" and all the crazy names? This simple color chart shows the popular roast levels from Blonde (Cinnamon) through French Roast, with the most common names and approximate comparable temperatures commercial roasters use. On the backside are photos of roasts in their appropriate color with text about the flavor notes that accompany each stage.

This chart is what we use, and is one of our most popular home roasting items. Get one today! Shipping is fixed at $.50 per chart so we can send it in a small box; the Post Office loves to lose them if we send them flat like we used to :-(

We cannot ship this item to Canada by itself, sorry, the shipping is more than the item cost! We can send it if it is part of a larger order only.

  1. 5 Star Review Great quick reference

    Great quick reference to judge roast levels on the fly by color.

  2. 5 Star Review Simple and unambiguous

    I have one of these with 14 levels on it and beans (from another place), and I must say this guide is much nicer to use. It's a lot more obvious where your roast is with a smaller set of colors, and the solid color design is also really helpful. Keep it simple!

The Araku Valley of India

India's coffee tradition goes back 400 years or more, when a variety called Kent was first established in the Southern Hills. Arabicas predominated until the blight of 1870, when growers needed to hybridize to resistant varieties. The resultant strains had genes from Liberica and other unique, resistant species.
