anomad's Behmor Adventure

... works. I never started a fire with my air roaster, so I threw in some beans and let er rip. My first pound was a Nicaraguan that came with the espresso sampler I ordered with the machine (from Sweet Marias naturally). ¼ pound I roasted on P1 (there are 5 preset ...

Re: SR700

... some store bought. But the shipment got to me today and I roasted this evening! It was difficult to make a decision on the bean but I bought the Nicaragua La Bastilla Estate El Penon. My wife had complained about my earlier attempts of roasting - that they were too dark so I tried to lighten ...

Re: Roasting El Salvador

... time period. What sort of drum roaster are you using and what is the weight of beans at the start of the roast? I'll be doing two 4 lb. roasts (Nicaraguan Cattura and a Guatemala Antigua La Flor) tomorrow on my BBQ roaster. (for Christmas gifts) If I preheat to 600 or 700 degrees before loading ...

Re: Roasting Robusta

... blending different beans and roast levels so these very dark roasted Robustas should be fun mixing with my other beans I have on hand right now. (Nicaragua Caturra & Pacamara, Ethiopia Yirgacheffe and Guatemala San Jorge) Are these typical results? Any thoughts or advice for the future roasts ...

Nicaragua Acopio Suyatal vs. La Laguna

Has anyone used the current Nicaragua LA Laguna as an espresso base? Suyatal was dynamite in previous years. I'm also wondering if Suyatal will be offered on SM's anytime soon. The description on Shrub is very intriguing, and peaked my ...
