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

Hello from Berkeley, California
Tjames
Iíve been roasting on/off for a while but mostly unsuccessfully with a cast iron, heat gun, or some combo of both. Iím building a custom roaster on a budget for small batches. Itís still in the drafting phase but Iím looking at an insulated metal box design with PID controlled heating element, air recirculation fan, small steel rotisserie drum, and a couple thermocouples hooked up to Artisan to provide profile data. Still unsure of which heating element to use, a standard stove coil is all I am thinking.

I joined the forum to look for ideas and learn more about what makes a good roaster. Thanks for having me.

I recommend you too look instead to a turbo oven lid based build, like SCTO or KKTO.
Simpler to build than an oven/drum assembly, and better heat circulation.
Cheaper... also, simpler to measure bean temp.
