I have been trying Scott Rao Hario V60 pourover this week. 1:17 and blooming with 2 parts water the first 45 seconds then splitting the rest into 2 pours. A little stirring is included. We like it.

My brew ratio is 1:17 (exactly 59.5 g/L). That's roughly 8.5g per 5-oz cup.

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

Narrowing down the flat taste

I posed this question to my manufacturer of my roaster but I did not hear back. Perhaps someone here has had the same issue. I have been roasting 10 years and I am using the Showtime Rotisserie Oven style roaster. All of my coffee tastes the same, despite different origins. Itís flat or dull with little (whole bean) smell. Iíve narrowed it down to the roaster or my cooling method. Iíve cleaned the roaster throughly(and all brewing equipment). My cooling method is 2 shop vacs-one sucks hot air away and another blows ambient air around to agitate the beans, all in a perforated and covered stainless steel pail. My roast profile isnít exciting, straight to 435 and i do preheat the roaster. Does anyone have suggestions on what to do next?
435F(224C) tell me your roast last more than 12-15 minutes, right ?
This temperature alone, combined with slow rotating speed of a rotiserie oven, 4 RPM typically, are the main culprits.
You should aim at least 450, ideally 480 inside oven (air) temperature, and at least 10 RPM, ideally 30-60 rotation speed, in order to have the prerequisites to start tweaking the optimal machine load, that produce FC in the 8-12 minutes ballpark.
Is 435 a machine limit or other reason ?
Machine is modified to spin 9rpm, although visually, it spins much faster than that. 435 is PID via manufacturer. I do have a thermometer inside the oven. I will see if I can modify the PID to increase the heat.

My gene cafe spins slower, but gets hotter. Is that why the results are better in it?
Gene spins exactly 10 RPM, but has a lot of paddle ... much more efficient to turn beans than a typical oven/barbecue drum.

And yes, Gene is a lot hotter, at least 300 C / 570 F exhaust of hot air element.
Thanks. Behmore Jake couldn't be released any sooner for me!!
