We, at the Center for Coffee Research and Education, are excited to announce our partnership with the roasting company, IKAWA. Our partnership was solidified through the generous donation of an IKAWA Pro Sample Roaster. Features of the IKAWA Pro include a small batch size to fine-tune roasting with minimal waste. The addition of two IKAWA Pro Sample Roasters to our Coffee Science Laboratory means that we will be able to roast in tandem which is ideal for our research, training, and education. Two IKAWA Pros will be especially useful in our undergraduate coffee course: Coffee Processing and High-value Food Crops. We are excited for future growth opportunities between IKAWA and the Coffee Science Laboratory in the Center for Coffee Research and Education at Texas A&M University.
