Re: My first roast with Air Crazy

... some different positions to slow the roast a little. You are probably right that it's not doing anything at this point. I will need to work on the decaf some more. I think I'll try an extension cord next in order to slow it down a bit.

Re: My first roast with Air Crazy

... I think that's evident by your second roast; you hit 2nd crack and a darker roast. That's not possible with an active thermostat in the Air Crazy. Decafs are a bit tougher in a popper as the cracks are kinda quieter and are masked by the popper noise. I found that when I started with the Air Crazy ...

My first roast with Air Crazy

... at 3:00. 2C at 7:00. Stopped at 8:00. Looks like a full city to full city plus. Smells much better than first batch. Third batch was El Salvador Decaf. It roasted different than the regular. 1C was less strong around 3:00, only a few soft cracks. I wasn't sure if I got 2C around 6:00 and it continued ...

Re: New decaf roaster here

... exception (Sumatras really really want to be pre-heated, I have noticed a more even roast for them.) Fortunately I have not needed to switch to decaf (yet), so I don't know if they roast differently, but for me, I am learning to roast by sight/smell/sound now, and nailing the roasts more often. ...

New decaf roaster here

... now...started with a modified Poppery, then got the Fresh Roast SR500, now happily toying with the Gene Roaster. I've recently had to switch to decaf for health reasons (yeah, sucks). In the past, I've had difficulty with uneven decaf roasts, which I thought a drum roaster would help to alleviate. ...

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 ...
