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 ...

Re: And the winner is...

... officially in the gift-to-self range, a more reasonable expenditure that our loving partners may allow. This machine looks like a cross between a blender and a Mr. Coffee, with a glass chamber in the middle. Three controls: heat (low/med/high), fan speed (+/- 10%), and time. You control everything, ...

Introductions and Getting Started

... beans to get a feel for the rig. It took me three tries to get beans that were acceptable for brewing, which I had today. I started with Donkey Blend Decaf, with the rationale being that I wanted to try several samples at different settings. Good stuff. I roasted again tonight so I could try ...

Re: New Gene Cafe user

... it doesn't take as much attention as the air popper and I can roast much more coffee per batch. My current favorite roast is using Liquid Amber blend and starting the roast at 482 degrees. When first crack hits at about 11 minutes in I reduce the temperate to 462 and let it go about a minute ...

Re: Light roasts on a SR500

... completion gets you nothing. I try to get through first crack as quickly as possible to even the roast up. This approach works for me with both blends and single origin beans. What I learned by moving to the SR700 - which is the identical roaster with a computer-connected digital controller ...

Re: HELP! Just harvested my 1st plant- need help processing

... variety is really out there. Mass market, retail coffee companies are usually trying to hit something replicable. They do this a number of ways—by blending, by roast level, roast style. They are not shooting for variety within a given brand. Over roasting is one way to achieve this. Just roast ...

Re: I have met the beans

... I've had some Brazils I really liked, and some others that were kinda boring... still good, these passed SM's cupping, but they really encouraged blending, y'know? This morning's cup was a light C+ roast of the Kirinyaga Kii AB, which to my surprise is still on the list. It's a strange thing, ...

And the winner is...

... better. As a long-time roaster, I've developed old favorites. I have eight favorite beans that I've configured into an almost infinite number of blends. But because each blend is a little different, each of them demands a slightly different roast profile. For example, when I use Brazilian as ...
