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 ...

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 ...
