I'm looking to hire someone to teach/help me to find the best roast profile for the 3 types of coffee that grow on my farm in nicaragua. I live in LA, but but could go anywhere in so cal with my Behmor for a roasting lesson. Please contact me if you're in

When your wife thinks 30 grams for a 6 cup setting is strong, you learn to drink muddy water when you are making coffee for both of you.

I use a rule of thumb of 60 grams per liter. 8 cups (1 liter, 32 oz) = 60 grams, 6 cups (3/4 liter, 24 oz) = 45 grams. 10 cups = 75 grams 12 cups = 90 grams

OldMan41, depends what is "a pot"... usually is more accurate to specify the brew ratio, instead grams of coffee. The most usual is 1:15, thus 40 grams for 600 ml of water. If the 100 grams are for one liter pot, then we are talking about 1:10 ratio.

JBM Roast profile
Can anyone direct me to where I can find a good roasting profile for JBM??
I have finally saved up enough $ to buy a roaster. {KN-8828P-2}
I ruined 10 lbs of Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee years ago in a Nesco roaster.
I vowed to not do that again till I got one of your Hottop's.
I've been to Jamaica & had jbm there.
I've bought already roasted med and dark jbm and enjoyed it.
I've searched online for answers but find very little precise info.
Most say " I did this & you should experiment".
I can't afford experimenting without more details to minimize waist!
Please help how you can.
Dave & Becky in Ohio...
I roasted two pounds I got from BCT (one to practice on, one two give away) to give as a gift to a special friend. I also tried to get good info on them before roasting, even emailed BCT but other than several saying it was money pissed away and don't roast them light, that was about all the info I could find. I also have to say, I didn't see anything about them that made me think they were worth anywhere near the $40 a pound I paid.

I ended up using the same profile I use for one of my Brazilian espresso beans, which was about six degrees short of SC. I tried one sample a few snaps into the SC and didn't care for it. Stopping short of SC still left some flavor and still had the dark chocolate flavor it seems they are supposed to have.
Thank you for that. My attempts felt like half way there. Still smelled better than most I'd roasted. Tasted better than most too! But was no where near roasted JBM by GSC tasted.
10lbs!!! Could not figure it out with a air roaster. 18 to 22 mins. No temp control or precise time control.
I've spent soo much $ on this and truck repairs. I have savings left.
Need to sell something. I repair PTAC's washers, dryers... {hobby}
But I don't get them often. Not as often as I need $$$.
Well! When I get some doe, yuk yuk. I will share my attempts with JBM.
I also use an air roaster but mine is capable of full PID control so I can dial in exactly what I want. I took mine to light (white) beans in four minutes and to the first of mallard (light toast) @ 6:20 minutes and to a steady roll of FC (not the first snaps) @ 9:45. I finished the roast in 12:15 @ 438F. SC in mine was 443F with those beans.

I have never drank JBM, other than those I used to test with and get an idea of how I wanted to roast them so I don't have a clue what they are supposed to taste like. I also don't have clue how those I roasted for my friend turned out. The day I put them in the mail, he was diagnosed with a very advanced stage of cancer and died 10 days later, before he had a chance to try them.
Dam! Sorry for your loss!

Hey old man, where you born in 1941??
No oil on my beans...
Nope! That's was my age when my son & I started road course racing.
Can't afford it anymore. [the avatar is a clue]

Gooooood nyborg, man!
(I think, memory isn't what it used to be)
...Heavy Metal, don't remember the year; musta been early/mid 70's?
