Re: SR500 owners - get in here!

... 400 degrees, but not *too* much more, so they generally can't get cold air hot enough. Are you roasting the recommended size batch? Regular or decaf? The turbulence in the flying bean mass and partial blocking of the chaff filter as the roast progresses can both make a good bit of difference ...

Re: I have met the beans

... my graduation requirements for the botanical certificate, and mostly over-roasting coffee. Gave a friend some finely ground over-roasted caff and decaf for her Keurig-type machine; she brewed me a half-caf cup (old Yemen and new decaf Sumatra) that wasn't half bad. Frankly a lot better than the ...

Re: Screen-bottom popper solution (Presto Poplite)

... advantage you have with this over the glass chute and thermostat bypassed WBAC I started off with for a grand total of $25. I still use it for decaf and small batches.. but except for the fact I had to shake the unit.. the roasts couldn't come out any better. My Behmor doesn't do as good of ...

Sending the Cocatu to Swiss

... the Cocatu compare to the Ethiopian Shebele-Shakiso? I ordered 10lbs of the Shebele-Shakiso SWP and have to agree that it is probably the best decaf I have had to date. When I roast it I roast to FC+ in a Whirley Pop on a gas stove top. Would the Cocatu be a good candidate for SWP and how would ...

Re: I have met the beans

Mmm. You make my mouth water. And it's too late for drinking anything but decaf -- of which there is none roasted. And I've used up all my "optional" time and must go draw some bugs and flowers to meet a deadline. No roasting today! At least I have ...

Re: Undeveloped flavor

... Get a $14 on sale WB Air Crazy, bypass the thermostat and use it instead. 1/6lb at a time. On small roasts it's MUCH better... I still use it for Decaf, for example. Air bed roasts taste better to me anyway, but it takes FOREVER to do a pound or two so I like the Behmor for that. Again, I'm critical ...

Re: I have met the beans

... soon. It's certainly lovely at P1. I decided a while back to do everything at P1, but my tastes change from time to time. The latest Sumatra Decaf (peaberries -- and I did lose a few from the diamond-shaped grid) came out nicely too. Despite my not hearing any cracks until 30 seconds before ...

Re: Ethiopia Zonegediyo Kochere Yirga Cheffe

... using visual cues as well. One of the good things about the Nesco & SR500 is an excellent view of the ongoing roast. Quite often when roasting decafs I can not hear the cracks, so I roast exclusively on time & sight. Love this hobby!

Rwanda Tumba Cocatu

... This is something I couldn't second guess. However, it caused me to limit myself to half-pound roasts for the Tumba Cocatu, and a Sumatra decaf as well. That latter I just roasted -- and never heard a single crack until 15 seconds before the end, when I added 15 seconds AND started hearing ...
