Re: Random Blends

... I planned. The latter have run mainly to variants of the Mokha-Java plan, sometimes with "original design" Yemen and Java beans, but DP Ethiopians are common alternates, and I probably use Sumatra, or other wet-hulled Indonesians more often than the classic Java component. Or even a ...

Jim Seven ponders Nespresso

Interesting look at what Nespresso is doing from James Hoffman.
They have a business model where they can buy whatever coffee they want, because their selling it at high prices. They’re selling their Ethiopian coffee at £53.23 per kilo (delivered of course…).

Re: Behmor 1600 Plus Drum Rotation

I roasted two one pound batches this morning, an Ethiopian and a Guatemalan, and used the default P1 setting. At the beginning of first crack I dropped down to P2 heat and finished the roasts there. I think the 8 rpm roast drum speed works very well ...

An Ecdote of Three Drums

... a lot better than either of the others at passing the chaff out. But it's miserable for some of my favorite "exotic" origins, mostly DP Ethiopia and Yemen, with many tiny beans. Last night I roasted the last of the Konga, and shook out 10g from a 230g pre-shake batch. And in my experience, ...

Re: anomad's Behmor Adventure

With the latest batch of Ethiopian beans in the pantry I am getting a rolling second crack. Which is a terrible thing to do to a coffee bean. (Full pound, P1 the full blast profile)

Tonight I am going to back off to a half pound and try one of the slower curves like P3 or P4.

Jimbean says hello from Maple Valley Washington (Seattle)

... work but take a little more attention as the rubber cannot be replaced (YET) If you are interested, let the questions fly. My favorite bean is the Ethiopian dry processed beans. When I roast I always try to roast just into second crack and let the Gene coast home. Roast on!! :D

Re: SR500 - IMHO, don't!

... aren't an issue for me, so I can't address their longevity or lack thereof. 1. I have not tried to roast any peaberries, but I have roasted some Ethiopian Yirgacheffe beans that were quite small (though with the usual coffee bean shape). I didn't have any problems with beans getting into the ...

Re: Will the 1600+ do darker roasts well?

... soon. This approach in only 75% successful. I'm currently exploring if the bean origin is critical. My notes suggest that Columbia is almost 100%; Ethiopia 90%. I've tried Donkey Blend, Expresso #33, & others, but either the bean isn't right for Starbucksey or I screwed up. One more thing. ...

anomad's Behmor Adventure

... I did things with the FreshRoast. (note, the P3 developed more character after resting a few days) February 5th 2015 I’ve gone through a pound of Ethiopian Blend that came with the espresso sampler now. Again trying the P1 and P3 roasting profiles both roasted through first crack and a few more ...

Re: Big "Thanks" to SM for the 8lb sampler

Wow! You got a great sampler. I just ordered the Rwanda Gitesi and really enjoy the Bourbon coffee beans. Also, the Ethiopians are favorites. You can't go wrong with any of those beans. I would roast the Gitesi first, but all are worthy choices. Thank you for responding. I let my ...
