Re: Undeveloped flavor

... - 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 slower) with no preheat, ...

Re: Java Sunda Pitaloka

... scores it seems to be a step nearer to traditional Indo profiles, perhaps some of the earlier Java Sunda lots. You might try one (or more) of the Sumatra lots currently listed, perhaps the Toba Batak Peaberry as the leading candidate. But look over the tasting notes - they're all, I think, unlikely ...

Re: I have met the beans

... Gave a friend some finely ground over-roasted caff and decaf for her Keurig-type machine; she brewed me a half-caf cup (old Yemen and new decaf Sumatra) that wasn't half bad. Frankly a lot better than the K-cups she uses for "espresso" from a different machine. Being used to "espresso" ...

Re: Behmor 1600-2 1/2 lb roasts or 1 1lb roast?

... but since I've become better practiced at the door trick I find I'm gravitating back to P1... though the jury's still out about some beans, so far Sumatra wet-hulled and at least some of the more unhomogenous DP Ethiopian lots prefer P3. The experiment is never really over, it seems. ;-)

Re: Sumatra coffees, mushrooms?

[...] Is this the "earthy" flavor that I see described? Does anyone else taste mushrooms? Hmm... perhaps. One of my all-time favorites is Ethiopia East Harrar. A very earthy coffee which I roast 'till 2nd crack gets rolling, and I've always associated the earthiness with a pleasant mushro...

Sumatra coffees, mushrooms?

I love drinking Sumatra coffees. I also love India Monsooned coffees, which I fins similar. I often taste a very pleasant mushroom flavor. Is this the "earthy" flavor that I see described? Does anyone else taste mushrooms?

Re: Kenya is BACK in espresso

... Wrong. The Kenya adds wonderful fruit, the Ethiopian is a half-note lower and adds its grace. Surprisingly, it's in the mods to the Guat and Sumatra or Java that the most interesting changes occur. If I bump the Guat up, I get a long bittersweet finish that the Guat brings. Think of this ...

Now My Air Crazy Popper Really Works!

... tried to learn as much as I could. As soon as we got home, I rushed to Target and bought a West Bend Air Crazy. Then to Kaladi Coffee to buy green Sumatra beans. Finally, home to give roasting a "shot"! Loved the little machine as soon as I turned it on. BUT, chaff was flying everywhere ...

Re: SR500 owners - get in here!

I just got my FreshRoast SR500 last week and I've done six batches so far, Sumatra and Harmonic Tremor from SM. The experiences of roasters on this forum has been really helpful getting started. I've started recording and using some strategies I've read here. ...

Re: Behmor - suggestions for roasting Papua New Guinea

... Guinea coffee that I've tried has been wet-processed, like most Central American coffee is, and tastes very much like a Central American coffee. Sumatran and other Indonesian coffee use "Giling Basah" processing, which gives the beans a unique taste. http://www.sweetmarias.com/library/node/8756
