roasting

A Balancing Act

 

There is something romantic and intimate about roasting these little green beans.  Opening that jute bag, knowing that these beans traveled a long way, bringing along their story, waiting to become something amazing to the senses.  It’s a big responsibility.

I realized that for me to do these beans from these little far away farms any justice, I needed to truly understand, connect and delve deep into my own senses.

There is nothing better than succeeding in capturing and coaxing out every unique flavour, yet leave very little imprint of the science of roasting that bean.  And each time it is different, just like in life, I am always seeking to find balance, if only to create a little bit more beauty and pleasure.
