Roasted Ott was born because I like my coffee very fresh. I began roasting my own coffee in 2004 after I couldn't find good quality, fresh coffee at the grocery store. Within a few years, I had a following of loyal coffee drinkers, many of whom were the firefighters I worked with at Mesa Fire & Medical. In 2007 I began roasting on a Diedrich 3kg roaster that’s manually operated with gas and air valves. No computerized or automated roasting profiles here, just lots of trial and error, and recording all of the details of every roast on paper.

In 2019 I began to realize it was time for a bigger roaster that could be monitored digitally.  So, I looked long and hard for a suitable replacement.  In May I found the one, a 5 kg Diedrich IR5 that was being used by a commercial roaster in Chicago.  Dan, my BFF and better half, took a road trip with his other BFF, Dave, to Chicago, and brought it home.  Although I still don’t have a programmable automated roast system, I can keep track of all of my roasts digitally with a roast curve that is created by all of my inputs and the temperature probes.  I still have to be present to make all of the adjustments and add input as the roast progresses, but no paper.

Over the years, I have developed many profiles for all different coffees.  Most of my coffees are roasted a bit slower and longer than they would be using other roasters, yet not as dark.  This preserves the inherent flavors of each region without burning the sugars and imparting a smoky, burned, charcoal taste.  My roasting results is a cup of coffee that is smoother, less astringent, and full of flavor.

As a SCAA licensed Q Grader  through the Coffee Quality Institute, I understand the great impact that the roast has on the quality and flavor of the coffee in the cup.
