Re: Behmor with 1/4 pound

... roast 5.15 oz./145 grams, rest 36 - 48 hours. Same-same, 12 years now. I just got 5# of Ethiopiques, and 4# of an Arruuuugas-wannabe blend (2# Brazil DP Pedra Branca, 1# Tanz. Mebeya Thado, 1# Rwanda Nyamasheke Nyungwe)... both C+/FC types. I'm going to start with Ethiopiques because I know ...

Re: Critiques and comments on first roast, plz?

... it is removed, which results in a fruitier tasting end product- it can be great, or it can be a trip to Funkytown. But also as important, the Brazilian beans tend to be grown at lower elevation and softer, which results in their ease of picking up charcoaly characteristics upon roasting. I ...

Re: Critiques and comments on first roast, plz?

There's been a lot of beans under the bridge since my last post, but I'll try to be brief. I finished out the last of the Brazilian with three batches roasted in one sitting, and each roasted 15-seconds longer than the previous. I failed to get all the way to "burnt" before ...

Re: SR500 how uneven is my roast

... it's not a gauge of quality in itself. Of all the coffees I've roasted the most beautifully even looking one may have been a batch of dry-process Brazil Cerrado that always colored up with almost military precision, but the drinking experience was not at all memorable flavor-wise.

Re: Critiques and comments on first roast, plz?

... probably will take your advice in due course, but in the interest of science (snicker) , I think I will continue aiming for darker roasts with the Brazilians until the improvement tapers off or reverses. It might cost me a few ounces of beans but at this point I feel the need to educate myself ...

Re: Critiques and comments on first roast, plz?

... grind per cup of coffee. Or how all these new components affect the steeping time in my French press. Not to mention, do I even like Brazilian coffee? I didn't expressly buy Brazilian, I just bought the sampler pack, and I rolled the dice and tried the Brazilian first. For the third ...

Re: Critiques and comments on first roast, plz?

... Mike, I can't wait to hear how you like them. They look pretty good to me. Try a cup, and try it again in another day or two, since I keep reading Brazils benefit from a rest. Its hard to tell from the picture due to monitor and camera calibrations etc., but I'm guessing you're somewhere in the ...

Critiques and comments on first roast, plz?

... now in "Using Air Roasters" to solicit your critiques of my result, as well as advice on how to improve. I started with two ounces of Brazil Fazenda do Sertao. I tested with three ounces but there was too little movement of the beans to suit me so I switched it off and cut back. I ...

Re: Hello from Southern California (Riverside)

... already have so many beans on hand because there's more I want to try! Okay, disclaimers having been said here's a couple I've been enjoying. Brazil Santa Ines Yellow Bourbon- I'm calling this pulp natural process "the comfort food of coffee". It's mild but flavorful, and so balanced, ...

Re: absolutely chuffed about home roasting!

... and add copies any old pictures, documents you might have to my files. As far as the coffee density I know the lower grown beans like Brazils are softer and not as dense to begin with. And all beans expand quite a bit when they are roasted to the lighter levels. I don't know what they ...
