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 ...

I have enjoyed the beans

Y'know, Jim, the decafs SM carries are nothing much like the decafs you can buy in the store. Just something to keep in mind should time and tides further encroach upon your enjoyment of the Holy Beverage. (and I'm going to let that ...

Re: SR500 owners - get in here!

... OK with small batch roasts - roughly quarter pound - then it's an excellent starter unit. I usually do three roasts one after another, regular/decaf/espresso, and with adjustable fan, timer and heating, coupled with a chamber you can see into, I'm quite pleased with the SR500. Also, although ...

Re: Hello

I haven't roasted so very much decaf, with the last batch being about a year ago. Not unhappy with the coffees - my tasting notes are peppered with "have to keep reminding myself this is a decaf" - but I just don't drink coffee ...

Re: Hello

Hi Dave.....do you perchance use P1 on decaf beans in your Behmor as well? Thanks from a fellow Tarheel.... Barbara I may have used P2 or P3 for the 2 pounds of decaf that I bought and roasted for a family member. I was told it was good. Those ...
