Re: pan roaster section

... I, too, try to hit certain markers at certain times. Recently, I went to a cupping at Temple Coffee, one of my local microroasters. I took along 2 Kenyans that I had roasted to city/city+. The in house roaster was excited and asked if we could cup my coffees. "H... Yeah! :o " He gave ...

Re: Just saying hi

... definitely check that out! PanRoast, I roasted my first two batches this week and I couldn't believe how easy and tasty it was. I used the new Kenyan Nyeri Tambaya and its tasted like fruit punch so far. I am hoping its not beginner's luck! I can't wait to see how day 2 after roast tastes tomorrow. ...

Scientist with a Roaster...

... novice roaster. I know once I catch up with the basics they will become clearer. As an example the two recent articles on roasting DP Brazil, and Kenya beans. Very interesting and I'm looking forward to implementing those ideas on some recently acquired DP Ethiopian & Kenya beans. But from ...

Re: I have met the beans

... remember fondly the small bag I almost didn't get before it was too late. Oh, here's another next-year-lot: I have some of the previous crop of Kenya Kirinyaga Kii AB and it's quite nice - lacks those screaming bright notes that have put me off of high-scoring (and pricier) Kenyas the last couple ...

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
