Re: SR500 owners - get in here!

... crack in about 2.45' (and that's with an extension chord, roasting the garage) and achieved a Vienna looking roast (lots of oil sheen) with a Brazil DP PB. So, obviously, that seems to be way too fast, though the beans were roasted really evenly looking. I also did a Rwanda with a little more ...

Re: Kenya is BACK in espresso

... week, that means I've done about nine roasts. Except for two dark roasts of Colombian, they've all been variations on the same theme: Guatemala or Brazil for a neutral base, Sumatra or Java for big-body base, Ethiopian for sweetness and grace, and then Kenya for rich fruit. It's not just the blend ...

Re: tips for good blending?

... as a balanced coffee. Personally, I like a balance of body, fruit, and acidity in espresso, with nice, bright flavor. So I use a neutral base like Brazil or Guatemala, then add a heavy-bodied coffee for richness (Java or Sumatra, for example), a fruit/floral coffee for "sparkle", and ...

Re: Kenya is BACK in espresso

... As expected, the Kenya adds some liveliness to both bouquet and flavor, and I can see a run of these, subbing Sumatra (S) for the Java (J) and Brazil (B) for the Guatemala (G), and also varying the amounts of Kenya relative to S/J and B/G. In short, this is more like landing on a new continent ...

Kenya is BACK in espresso

Back in my iRoast days, I made a four-bean blend of espresso with Brazil, Sumatra, Ethiopia, and Kenya. Then my iRoast burned itself out - fluid bed roasters always do - and replaced it with a Behmor. I have to be honest - I never got on top of the Behmor, ...

Re: QUEST M3 after 75 BATCHES

... I have got my experience down to a routine. I have solidified on 150gram charge size. I prefer larger beans - I like the Kenyans and a small lot Brazilian. Also like the Esmeralda, but only roasted one pound total. Have not been able to perfect roasting any Ethiopians. I stripped the machine ...

Re: Hottop and roasting outside

... but still way too much snow on the ground outside of the roasting area. Still I managed to get in 4 - half pound roasts of Guatemalan, Sumatran, Brazilian and Rwandan beans Hottop is silhouetted but was the only way to get the snow photoed. Porch overhang protects the roasting area from melting ...

... I decided my housemate's tastes were not the same as mine; he preferred Yemeni and Guatemalan origins where I was taken by Sumatrans and a fruity Brazil that never showed up on the SM lists again. Meanwhile I've discovered Ethiopians and Kenyans, and gotten some Yemenis that I adored. So who can ...
