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

Cleaning the roast chamber on a Gene Cafe
Mark McCornack
Hi folks. Another question I have for Gene Cafe users (this should be a fairly simple one).
I have a machine thatís been in service for a good long while, and Iím looking for the best method to clean off the baked on coffee bean oils that have clung to the inside of the glass over the years. I know there are some aggressive solvents out there, but as coffee slated for consumption will be in the drum after cleaning, Iím reluctant to just use anything. Also reluctant to ruin good coffee, or my own internal organs in the aftermath by using the wrong stuff.
So whatís the word on the street for the best stuff to use to de-soot my old roast chamber? Anybody got a favorite or advice?
Regards...Mark

My turbo oven roaster has a glass top. I use simple green/scotch brite pad and scrape most of it off with a straight edge razor.

No need for an aggressive solvent, using the usual kitchen dish cleaner Axion, to clean the same glass lid as JackH.

Because it is dish/food safe, I assume it is also safe for cleaning the roaster glass parts...
However, a turbo oven lid has no direct contact with the beans, so take it accordingly...
