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.

HGDB imitating drum-roaster profile
I like to share my HGDB (heatgun dogbowl) temperature profile.
I used HGDB method for nearly 6 months, before I build my drum roaster. I tried several roasting profiles with the HGDB method and the profile I was using in my recent roasts was aiming to imitate a drum roaster profile.
My heatgun has an electronic temperature control which allows me to adjust the blowing air temperature in 10 degrees centigrade steps.
For my particular setup,
* dogbowl has a mass of 300gr
* roasting batch is 125gr or less
* heatgun power is 2000W(max)
* airflow of the heatgun is always at maximum setting
* ambient air temperature is between 20C and 25C
And the profile for the heatgun air temperature is:
* start at 400C
* check the color of the beans (check for yellow)
* usually yellow occurs at or before 2 minutes.
* drop temperature to 200C, keep for 3 minutes
* after 3 minutes, increase temperature 30C (i.e 230C @5minutes approximately)
* repeat same after 3 minutes (260C @8minutes approximately)
* at 11 minutes make it 290C and keep it at 290C until the end of the roast.
* my manual logs show that first crack occurs somewhere after 13:30 minutes and second crack around 16 minutes.
* I usually stop before second crack using the smell/smoke (not too much smoke)
* dump the beans and cool

This profile gives a high heat at the beginning, which is similar to a preheated drum. The tasting results were usually not as bright and complicated as a drum roaster profile but satisfactory.!/KahveUNO
