roasted some Indian Monsoon Malabar to the first stage of second crack during the week - and I must say its one of the most enjoyable beans I've ever roasted.  Why, because they came up a beautiful orange / red colour during the roasting process, they were evenly graded and roasted beautifully, and they came up a treat as a filter coffee only 2 days post-roast - suggesting that they will age beautifully!  

Gotta get on top of this whole rotational thing by roasting at least a week in advance of proposed consumption date, as I'm putting a good deal of my home roasts through the cafe as filter coffee - and I need to have a bit more age on them - still, I'm enjoying the process of seeing how they shape up in the cup immediately post roast - and then observing the ageing process over time


Cheers,

Pat

well I for one love it!

revisited the Venezuelan San Chrisabol today - it looked too good when I roasted it so I had to pull a few double riz's just to keep me happy!

Need to hear you feedback on the process and the cup..

I did my old trusted standby PNG :-)

This is the first time I have roasted decaf and it roasted like normal beans on the KKTO
Does anyone know as to how long to leave for degassing ?

I feel they degas pretty quickly and can be used within a couple of days, mind you I'm not as fussy when it comes to decaf

Brett

Decaf 2 days post roast It does not taste any good
I will leave it to degas about 5 days, like normal beans and see how it tastes then

And that will be tomorrow

Update on the Columbian Mountain water process decaf I roasted

This is a beautiful coffee at 5 days post roast
It does lack a little acidity, it has a lingering but mild chocolate after-taste for 20 minutes

I will roast it again

Ran myself right out of roasted beans a couple of days ago so down to the shed to roast 625g of Yirg, as usual took it to full city +, turned out well, let it degas for a full 18 hours before I broke her open, it's drinking ok but imagine it will improve over the next few days. ::)

I roasted a second batch of decaf on the KKTO again today,
The roasting process was just like normal beans

500 grams of  Columbian Mountain water process decaf

Flavour is all there, so much so that most people wouldn't know its a decaf

It's one of a few green beans that is sold by Barazi to current KKTO owners and home roasters that ring direct or visit the site

I'm never going to say no to an offer of freshly roasted coffee especially from the esteemed Mr K!

Also the mother in law is arriving on Thursday so I'm going to need all the help I can get!

Many thanks Mr K!

I did manage to squeeze out 800g of Nepali Plantec Estate yesterday while the outlaws were away but this was roasted for filter and strictly for work only, as it should be considering that the green beans cost more than the roasted ones that I buy!

Thanks again in advance for the coffee - looking forward to trying something new

Cheers, ACG

Pat the roasted beans have been posted in a 3 kg Australia Post pre paid post bag
Hope they deliver it on Friday if they are quick, if not you will see the coffee arrive on Monday

You can report on the flavour profile

many thanks to KK for sending some superlative coffee my way - I was just starting to despair about my home coffee stakes: at home with no fresh roast and looking after two kids while mum is out, and last coffee I had at the local cafe was sub-par... what to do!

Was thinking of packing the kids in the car and driving to work to get a good cup of Joe when low and behold there is a ring at the door and the postie dropped a couple of sizable bags of KK's finest!

My faith in the world has been restored and now I think its time for another cup...

Thanks KK for restoring my faith in mankind and coffee!

Cheers,

P

Its my pleasure Pat
Call me a marriage councillor  ::)

But you can thank the KKTO roaster as it's done all the work and I just watched.
Another 30 more roasts and it will hit 400

When you get to the Ethiopian @ about 10 days post roast you can blend them as they mix well together

Now I want some feedback
If the beans were sent to you as a blind test would you have thought that they were professionally roasted ? or an obvious home roaster job

Exactly "if there's any left" !!!

Tomorrow I want to add a bit of Nicaragua El Limoncillo (for it's acidity) just to see what it's like.

I guess when you don't have time to read up on what you're doing, just jump in and start.
