Re: SR500 how uneven is my roast

... roast up. The description for the wet-processed Flores Wae Rebo says it roasts evenly, but that's in the same sentence comparing it to semi-washed Sumatra coffees, which give you some of the most uneven looking roasts you'll ever get when you roast at the lighter levels. (But they end up being ...

In praise of Gunung Gayo

I see that a new batch of Wet processed Sumatra Gunung Gayo was added to the new arrivals list. I still have some from the first batch, which went out of stock very fast, and I think it is fantastic! ...

Re: Hello

... good sometimes but I don't think I know what I'm doing with it yet. I got almost a pound of that left so I get a few more tries though. I love Sumatra coffees, especially at the lighter roast levels. Haven't had a Costa Rica that I found memorable, but I will keep looking- in memory of the ...

... panel, but that upgrade will be coming soon. I like just about everything I have roasted with the exception of the island coffees - Costa RIca, Sumatra, etc. There is just an earthy / volcanic flavor I can't get past. I have two brewing setups - one for work and one for home. At work I have ...

Re: Screen-bottom popper solution (Presto Poplite)

... like continuous cranking does give a more even looking (but not necessarily better tasting) roast. One of my favorite roasts so far has been a Sumatra Mandheling that is all over the place in appearance, but has been a sublime blender and supremely aromatic. I'm considering a motor and pulleys ...

Re: Roasting outside in wind

I feel your pain butch. I was mad at myself a few weeks back for getting a small roast of wet process Gunung Gayo Sumatran too dark- for no better reason than I was listening for snaps when I should have been watching the color and time more carefully. What kind of coffee was it, ...

Re: The Corny Coffee Joke Thread

Why is being a harsh critic of Sumatran coffee like being in the junkyard business?

You diss Mandheling all the time.

Re: Ultraviolet

... better. Looking specifically for the "glow" is helpful with some lots as you can see a real outlier in some. Not helpful too much with Sumatran's as they all glow :lol: .... so my take is it helps in the sorting process .. you can do a better job with it than without it if you are willing ...

Re: Middle ground between home and commercial roasting?

... Thanks for this HGBM suggestion Ira. I just tried this and it was super easy and the beans are very uniform, especially since they were decaf. (Sumatra) I didn't weigh the roast I just poured enough to cover the bottom with the paddle spinning, maybe 1/4 lb? Can you really roast a whole lb this ...
