What's in Your Roaster This Week?
DavidG
Picked up an original WearEver Popcorn Pumper. Add thermometer; add Costa Rica La Rosa SHB; take her for the first spin. At the tail of 1C the 'stat kicked in and shut her down (hack that later). Cup was unexpectedly fruity and balanced. I'll do that again.

Organic Bali Blue Krishna. Roasted last nite to C+. Supposed to taste like blueberries. Does not have that blueberry smell like Korate did.....I'll hafta wait and see how it tastes. Beans are smooth looking and smell really nice.

I roasted some of our local green Bean Bay offering in AU

600 gr of Sumatra Mandheling Mystic TP to rolling second crack CS 8/9


How do I explain a feeling & resulting action
Its one of those coffees that you enjoy so much that you forget you have finished it but continually pick up an empty cup to sip again

Mouth feel is silky smooth
Flavours are a mild mix of sweet berry
with a mild but balanced chocolate after-taste

If roasted a little darker others that have roasted the same bean say they get a caramel flavour

Was not too thrilled with the way this one turned out so I roasted a 2nd batch. This time a full 30 seconds into C2. Smells good after roast.....we'll see...
Anybody else roasting this and care to share their thoughts on it?

Yes
After first crack, if you don't roast it slow into second crack by approx 6 min it will have a sour taste

2nd crack was more like 3 mins after 1st. How did you figure that out? Did you go through a few batches of this stuff??
Did you get any blueberry notes?

Yes went through a couple of batches before I nailed it
I got some mild berry notes after an 8 day degas

Try this
As a rule of thumb for roast depth, think... lemons, berries, caramel, chocolate, charcoal... in that order of roast depth.

So the flavour profile will be determined by the your roast colour depth

I hope that makes sense

tasting the 2nd batch now. It tastes burnt. That was 30 sec into C2. Tricky little coffee. I only had a pound so that's the end of my Blue Krishna experience.
In terms of favor relating to roast profile. How do you determine profile based on the flavor you are seeking? I know thats a complicated question, but do you have a general version for dummies?:)

My roast profile is FC at 9min 30 sec and SC at 16 min that includes 30 seconds into SC
However many variables including the type of roaster can determine a roast profile
How many days do you let the coffee degas B/4 consuming
Do you store your beans in one way valve bags

I degass in one way valve canisters for about 48 hrs for most coffees. I have noticed that some dont get good until 5 days or so...

I'm kinda lazy I guess in that I use the same roast profile across the board and dont know enough to adjust for different coffees.

Ahhh... Home roasting is very satisfying
welcome to the (fun) variables of coffee roasting!

Wow KK, that was actually very informative. I have been relying on the preset profiles of the Behmor. Now that I'm building my BBQ roaster I need to develop my own. My wife and I have noticed a sour taste when my roaster doesn't quite get the beans into SC. We don't like sour coffee. I have wondered why it tastes sour. I knew it wasn't roasted long for our taste, but I hadn't considered the length of roast between cracks. I figured it just needed to get to SC period. Thanks for that info!

That Koffee Kosmo, what a guy! There's a bit to learn from everyone and KK is all over sharing what he knows.

A tippa the mug to KK.

I cant take all the credit
Quite a lot of my replies have a high percentage of personal experience and the rest from others that have advised me

Today it's a bit of Sumatra Lintong Special Prep, roasted to FC+.

After that I will do up a small batch of Brasil Serra Negra - Mtn Water Decaf. This is a bean that I am pretty impressed with; does a really nice decaf.

Oh, and a large pot of tomatoes from the backyard on their way to becoming some nice red sauce.

Thanks for the advice about slowing down the time between 1st and 2nd C, KK. I have been looking for the appropriate excuse to a Gene roaster and I think that you provided it. Now to get my credit card balances down to pay for it ---then I will really be in COFFEE HEAVEN. Thanks a lot for your dedicated posting to teach us. THIS IS FUN Shock Grin

Clifford, you will love the Gene Cafe. It is quite easy to drop the heat and extend the roast between 1st and 2nd.

Yummy coffee comes out of the GC.

John:

Are you still waiting approx 90 seconds after first crack to begin cool cycle? I know you play a lot by ear and ad lib but generally.....
Thanks

I over roasted a batch of Panama Boquette Carmen Estate. It is almost black and oily. I brewed a cup of it. Yet it does not taste that bad, though there is a slightly burned taste. I will use it up as a minor component in other blends to see what the effect is. This may give me the courage to let some of the others go to 2nd crack. I have been stopping mine at the end of first. Has this happened to anyone elsr. It looks like a Vienna roast; not all the way to French.
