Re: Home Rosting Expectations

... to brew. The variety from the different origins is wonderful. We rotate Ethiopian, Central American, Sumatran, and Rwandan, sometimes creating blends. My wife and I recently went to an expensive local coffee shop and discovered that our coffee is just as good or better than what they were selling. ...

Recs for Behmor roasting Workshop#31 or New Classic?

Hi everyone,

Still not a 'master' with my Behmor 1600 by any means.

Anyone have recommendations for how to roast either SM Espresso Workshop #31 or New Classic Espresso Blend?

Usually do 1/2 lb roasts at a time...

Thanks!

Re: Ethiopia Espresso Questions

... there on the offerings summary page. But you still have to scan carefully, as there are lots included in that category that are good blending components, but not so good as a straight or SO cup. Thought tastes do differ, and my mad friend Jim used to pull straight shots of robusta ...

Re: Donkey Blend Question

Super!
Thanks Aaron.
I will give it a go.
I roasted again tonight, but went with a SO espresso out of my sampler pack. I went just a wee more than a smidge and probably went just a little too much. It appears it worked out.

Take care.
Dennis.

Re: Donkey Blend Question

Hi Dennis, Congrats on starting out homeroasting with the tried and true Whirley Pop! There are different beans in there and that does account for the disparity in roast tone and degree you see there but it is ideal and possible to even these out. I find that being gentle with the heat rampup helps ...

Donkey Blend Question

Hello. I am a rookie. I roasted a few small batches of the Donkey Blend Decaf using a Whirley Popper. How does this look? Any recommendations? It tastes good. There appears to be two distinct colors of beans; light brown and dark brown. Should I assume that ...

Re: And the winner is...

... ago how much coffee to load the FreshRoast with, bean circulation has been perfect and the roasts are as even as they can be. Different beans in a blend may color differently. I've fine-tuned my way through two profiles so far. Fine-tuning a profile requires close supervision of the roast, taking ...

First espresso blend with Sulawesi

Did my first-ever espresso blend using Sulawesi the other night, have it in the cup right now. I haven't used Sulawesis in my blends in the past because Sulawesi has a distinctive "smoky" edge to it, where I've usually looked ...

Re: Sulawesi Bone-Bone Village

I'm an espresso drinker, but i don't drink SO espressos. IMO, they lack balance. That said, I've not usually used Sulawesi in my blends because it has a certain "smoky" edge to it. Long story short, first espresso blend with Sulawesi Bone-Bone Village in the cup right now. The ...
