Re: Undeveloped flavor

... low line voltage lately -- 115 - 117V under load -- and find my Behmor works very well with 1/4 - 3/8 lb, but no more. I get nice C+/FC roasts of Guatemalan, Kenyan, Ethiopian, Sumatran beans. I roast a somewhat larger quantity (3/8 lb maybe) of Sumatran on P3 1# (yes, the 1 pound setting, so ...

Re: Hottop Profiles - P

... a roast as good as what Counterculture Coffee, to give one example, routinely produce, and have yet to obtain notably good results with the Guatemala or Panama gesha beans. That said, like you, I also have a busy life, between the love of a woman, work, travel, sport, and hobbies, so I haven't ...

Re: HotTop damaged in shipping - safe to use?

... I've been experiencing uneven roast results pretty consistently. This happens using auto or manual mode with several different beans (ethiopian, guatemalan, rwandan) and all with 230g batch size. Does anyone have any insight as to what might be causing this? These images were taken of my most ...

Re: Kenya is BACK in espresso

... times a week, that means I've done about nine roasts. Except for two dark roasts of Colombian, they've all been variations on the same theme: Guatemala or Brazil for a neutral base, Sumatra or Java for big-body base, Ethiopian for sweetness and grace, and then Kenya for rich fruit. It's not ...

Re: Newbie Recommendation

The sweetest SO beans that I've ever roasted are Guatemalan (cautionary note: I have little experience with island sourced beans so there may be something there too)

Nesco burn out

... button within the bottom panel,or a protection fuse, and 2) I used Mexican beans for the first time and they seemed a bit smaller than my usual Guatemalan. When I discover the catastrophe this morning, several beans seemed to be 'stuck' in-between the vanes of the central agitator. Could that ...

Re: tips for good blending?

... coffee. Personally, I like a balance of body, fruit, and acidity in espresso, with nice, bright flavor. So I use a neutral base like Brazil or Guatemala, then add a heavy-bodied coffee for richness (Java or Sumatra, for example), a fruit/floral coffee for "sparkle", and an acidic ...

Re: Kenya is BACK in espresso

... Kenya adds some liveliness to both bouquet and flavor, and I can see a run of these, subbing Sumatra (S) for the Java (J) and Brazil (B) for the Guatemala (G), and also varying the amounts of Kenya relative to S/J and B/G. In short, this is more like landing on a new continent than arriving in ...

Kenya is BACK in espresso

... unless, of course, I roasted its unique character out of it and replaced it with darkness. My blend of choice at present has been Brazil or Guatemala with Ethiopia and Java or Sumatra (Java is wonderful in the FreshRoast). So this morning I roasted my blend of choice but replaced a little ...

Re: Hottop and roasting outside

Air temp was 65º today but still way too much snow on the ground outside of the roasting area. Still I managed to get in 4 - half pound roasts of Guatemalan, Sumatran, Brazilian and Rwandan beans Hottop is silhouetted but was the only way to get the snow photoed. Porch overhang protects the roasting ...
