Favorite Beans

... have been the most consistent lately. Up front, I must admit that I don't do Indonesian or island beans. A couple of years ago, I would've said Kenya and Ethiopia without hesitation. Neither of those two have delivered consistently since. What has delivered for me during the last year has been ...

Re: Will the 1600+ do darker roasts well?

... to try the P1 setting. I usually use P3 D and max time. One thing I have noticed is no matter what I do I don't like how African coffees come out. Kenyan is the exception but Ethiopia and Yemen are way too bitter. I seem to like them when I have tried professional roasters but not my own. Does ...

New Old Dog...

... father's shops. Although the latter are at least tolerable, if they would only politely give up on calling everything by some generic name. Kenya? Ethiopia? Columbia? Pretty big places, those. Oh, well. Enough. We don't rant, don't insist, and don't harass the poor shopkeepers trying to ...

Choosing a Roaster-HamiltonBeach Popaire 2

... Maria's. Thanks for being there! Just found a used Hamilton Beach PopAire 2 at Saver's for $3.99. Cleaned it up and was able to roast 3 batches of Kenya AB to full city plus roast in 5 minutes. It worked great. It is listed as 1050 watts, but it sure has a lot of power to roast 115 grams (4 oz) ...

Re: Hot Top Program

... and Revel. When I get a chance, I'll post my roasting results with beans from my inventory, including: Ethiopia Yirga Cheffe Teklu Chele'lektu; Kenya Nyeri Tambaya AA (possibly my last experiment with Kenyan coffee; I haven't cared for roasts by a good commercial roaster of Kenyan coffees - ...

Re: Learning the Behmor 1600

So my Behmor arrived two days ago, and I've now performed two 1/4 lb roasts, both using Kenyan coffee, and using A and P1. The first batch, I set the timer to 1.30 at the start of 1C, and 1C had just finished when it entered the cooling cycle, but as you suggested, ...

Tanzanian Bergfrieden

... Ramp it up differently? Am I totally getting this one wrong? In reference, for the last couple years, the far majority of what I buy is from SM's Kenyan Nyeri selections & Eth YG offerings, with a bit of Guatemalan Huehuetenango or Acatenango thrown in for my few recipients that still want ...

micro blend/micro roast/micro brew

This is a sort of update on the Kenya is back thread, but then again, it's not. It contains one contrarian idea. First off, the ground rules. I roast in 100g batches (micro), and i roast in a FreshRoast SR500. Why anyone thinks there is a ...

Re: Undeveloped flavor

... 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 the ramp goes ...
