Sonofresco Roasting Profile - Kenya Extended Drying Time

Hello, I purchased a Sonofresco ADR control (roasting profile control) and I'm learning how to use it. I read the Sweet Maria's article on roasting Kenyas http://www.sweetmarias.com/library/node/9248 and I'm trying to translate that into a saved roast profile. The article says One of the keys to ...

Re: Scientist with a Roaster...

Question for Old Seed as you use a HotTop. ...With 250gr. of WP Kenya dropped at 220 degrees (day time temp ~ 85 degrees) and reaching 1st Crack at 10:30 (380 degrees), does that sound like I may have a problem with heating element? If it does I guess it's ...

Re: Scientist with a Roaster...

... it. Heater coil looks good but it or board could have arrived defective. Haven't had problem roasting Ethiopian Dry Processed (DP). Just the Kenyas, both AA and Peaberry. Best guess at this point, ...because lower drop temps seem to come out better than higher drop temps and shorter roast ...

Re: Scientist with a Roaster...

Hi Jim -- I've used a Hottop B since early 2008, many pounds of Ethiopian & Kenyan beans, occasionally disappointing, never "green/flat." Usually follow the default profile -- load at 167F when the beeps start, aim for 1C to commence after 13 minutes ...

Re: Scientist with a Roaster...

... In fact it suggest the somewhat "green/flat" taste (keep in mind my coffee vocab. is quite limited at this point) I'm getting in the new Kenya AA and Peaberry might be improved on if I drop at lower temps ('building a temp. gradient earlier on') even though it will lengthen total roast ...

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 ...
