A Word From The Author -
Raimond Feil

Hey there, I’m Raimond!

My journey in the world of Specialty Coffee began back in 2004 when I first stepped into the industry as a waiter. However, it didn’t take long before I positioned myself as a barista. As my passion for coffee grew, I eagerly sought out literature on the subject, only to find a limited selection available at the time. Fuelled by my growing interest, coffee transformed from a mere job to a consuming hobby.

In 2005, an exciting opportunity knocked on my door, offering me the chance to step up my game. I took on the roles of a coffee roaster and barista trainer. This shift marked a significant turn in my coffee journey, shaping my understanding of the craft. Fast forward a few years, in 2014, I co-founded Rocket Bean Roastery. For the next two years, I dedicated myself to leading production and roasting, training the personnel, steering product development, and ensuring quality control.

My extensive 12-year voyage through the world of coffee and roasting allowed me to delve deeply into the intricate art of coffee roasting. When my time at Rocket Bean Roastery drew to a close in 2016, I realized I had gathered a wealth of knowledge and experience that I wanted to share and give away. This led me to write a book on the art of coffee roasting – “Coffee Roasting Made Simple.”

Simplifying the Complex Craft of Coffee Roasting

Why “Coffee Roasting Made Simple?” And can something so complicated as coffee roasting be simplified in the first place?

I’ve often encountered coffee-related books written in a sophisticated manner, employing scientific language that may overwhelm beginners. Imagine starting to learn about roasting while simultaneously needing to grasp an entirely new language.

I personally believe in simplicity. I appreciate it when someone can break down complex subjects into easy-to-understand language, similar to how you would explain things to someone 12 years old or younger. I’m not saying this book is meant for a child, but by focusing on practicality over sophistication, it’s easier to learn any new skill, including coffee roasting. So, in writing this coffee roasting book, my primary goal was the practicality and user-friendliness of the book.

Loving this book. Raimond has packed this book full of thought-provoking material, making me take a step back and have another look at how I’m doing things.

Such a welcome addition to the collection of coffee literature.”

'Troy O'Rourke


“Reading Feil’s book reminds me of the practical, hands-on education one gets when they first start working under a veteran coffee roaster. In my estimation, it’s a valuable addition to the existing literature on coffee roasting. Veteran and aspiring roasters alike will benefit from reading this book.”

Michael Butterworth


The book is on fire! I really like your approach. I want that juiciness I’ve experienced here and there. And now that it is repeatable, it is exciting…
It’s been almost a year since I found your video on YouTube, and it has really changed my coffee career. I’ve been roasting tasty coffee ever since. It takes the guesswork out of everything, but I can still be creative with my approach and have a lot of fun.

Oke Atatah


I really enjoyed it! You have done a great job of putting together such a complicated topic in such a simple but full of important info way! I admire how exactly and mathematically you planned the roasting of all the coffees. There must be a lot of knowledge of all the variables behind, and this will be my next challenge: to plan the roast and being able to predict, and your book was really inspiring for this.”

Stefano Ciamarra


“I have read a lot about roasting… Raimond’s book is so easy to understand, and the results are very good.
