Re: Donkey Blend Question

... 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 when roasting decaf coffees. This doesn't mean roast so slow that everything stalls out though. I would try to increase your roast time by a minute or so by slowing ...

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 ...

Introductions and Getting Started

... 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 them ...

Too quiet...

... yesterday to see if I'd missed anything and there was nothing there to miss. I was putting in a new order, mostly because I was nearly out of decaf. I also ordered five pounds of the latest Brazil, so I'd be able to roast several large batches to share over the holidays, instead of trying ...

Re: Ethiopia Shebele-Shakiso SWP Decaf

Mine looks nuked, without any sheen, but it tastes good and I take it just past 1st crack. It's the taste that matters! :lol:

Re: Ethiopia Shebele-Shakiso SWP Decaf

Decaf has little or no chaff as a result of the decaffeination process. I'd agree that it's a bit ugly looking roasted, at least compared to its sexier caffeinated siblings. Roast color is not as reliable of an indicator of ...

Roaster (SR500) starting to fade?

... it is taking longer to get to first crack -- than a year ago. My roaster in only about 1 1/2 years with perhaps 100 roasts. I roast a range of 80% decaf beans at C+ to FC+ (no Vienna or beyond). I don't have any mods to the roaster so I can't post good numbers except to say that it seems to take ...

Re: Ethiopia Shebele-Shakiso SWP Decaf

I think I bought a pound of this a few months ago. It's the only decaf I've roasted. No chaff and it's ugly as heck and really dried out looking after the roast (air popper) but it tastes pretty good. Are you finding the same in terms of looks?

Re: Scientist with a Roaster...

Aside from decafs and a few generally odd lots (monsooned, eg., and probably the aged coffee, though I don't recall that so clearly), I've found that "peak yellow" is tolerably consistent and easy enough to observe. The ...
