Going home to do my first roast in MONTHS I hope I still remember how it is done.

Thinking for safety stainless bowl and spoon roast of MTE478 is in order to ease back into it  :)

Today I roasted 500g Yemen Sanani Mocca had trouble with hearing the cracks for the first time since I started raosting so it was a site and sell roast ;D c9..

I was quite surprised with the amount of chaff from such a small pea berry bean..

Roasted 300gm PNG Wahgi AA in the KKTO tonight.  New TO makes roasting later in the day a breeze.

Roasted 315g Laos Dong Hua Sao two days ago. Blended with a one week old Ethiopian Guna Limmu 50/50 - WONDERFUL.

Roasted 300g Java Ijen and blended with 300g Ethioipian Guna Limmu yesterday. Will cup once my other blend is finished.

Next roast will (hopefully) be Bolivian (you reading, Jeff? :P )

I hear you RM - roasting the BOL today is the most important on my list.

As I know you love the devil in the detail...........here are the params I will be using

Load temp 200 degrees C
70% initial airflow
2 min, 25 sec turning point
100% airflow after turning point
1st crack at 9mins 10 secs
Dump at 209 on first snaps of 2nd crack
Roast time 15mins 05 secs (+/- 3 secs)

Oh how I want a commercial roaster! Hopefully I can at least come remotely close to your roast with my humble home equipment and (much) smaller batch.

Richard here is what I can get from a non commercial roaster :)

I think it's pretty good but who knows really, I'm still too much of a newbie I think :)

I did the following on the weekend, well Friday and it's turned out fairly sweet with still a chocolate smell and taste.

Nicaragua La Gloria Las Brisas

Minutes    Heat  Fan   Temperature
0-8       7   4.5   180   
8-11           7.5   4.5   188   1c
11-13   7.5   4   195   
13-15   8   4   205   

I pulled it before second crack which it would have been very close to.

A tasting report on the Colombia Andes Santa Rita
 
Before I post my report
Please note that I have a preference for milk based coffee but have cupped on lots of occasions

Roasted just into second crack
Using the Syphon I found it very nice and smooth coffee
It has a fine chocolate tint with a hint of sweetness but that sweetness may have come to me from inhaling the essence, overall very delicate and this time my pallet could no pick anything else

In a milk drink, its remarkably the same but a little muted
It does not cut through the milk as some other beans do

Overall its a very delicate and pleasant in the cup

Roasted up a sample of my Syrah Blend.  Utterly powerful in the cup.  Syrupy deliciousness.

I'll add that this was through a 22g VST basket.

just finished roasting 500grm of ethiopian guna limmu , and i am a little worried that i may of took them out a tad early .
after taking a couple of other roasts a bit to far i pulled these out quicker to be on the safe side .
the temp bean mass was getting into the low 130's and that's where the last roast i did started getting a bit to smokey and i ended up with black divots in them , but these ones i just did the cleavage ( well that's what i call it ) on some of the beans was still very pale but the bean colour looks good though.
i suppose i will find out in a few days .
i am trying to get a few different beans roasted so i can taste some SO and then try some blended.

Johno,

I might have missed it, but what are you roasting in? Can you put it in your profile, as I keep reading your posts, and not sure of your method. Assuming coretto or KKTO with the volumes you're talking about??

That light colour cleavage you speak about is it leftover husk ?

a picture is worth a thousand words .
my thoughts are that i may not be reducing the heat quick enough when 1st crack starts .

That's definitely husk in the bean crevice

Nothing to worry about
However the divots are still there also a bit of tipping so you will need to experiment with heat & ramp times

Peru Ceja de Salva Estate i roasted some on the 27/5 i had a try of it yesterday morning and it was nice .
then late this arvo i got back from toowoomba  hanging  for a coffee so i decide to give the de selva another try .only have one grinder at the moment so i had to clean out the stuff that was left that the wife was using today and made myself a cup very very nice latte . meanwhile there are 2 guys travelling through sitting having burgers one has a coke the other asks for a chino in a mug so i made him one with the de selva that i had in the grinder , when they were finished they came to the counter and commented on the burgers being great and thanking the wife for making dam good burgers then the guy that had the coffee wanted to know more about it so i explained what it was showed him my roasted on date on them showed him some greens and had a chat for 5 minutes the end outcome was he said to me well that was the best cuppa i can remember ever having so what ever it is you did just keep doing it .
it just makes me feel so dam good to know they went away happy.
and that de selva i like a lot question is can i repeat the roast  again ????.
and i have at least 8 or 9 more greens to try yet .

Did something totally different this week.  My beans stash is getting low so I did a blend of some beans and roasted them.

135gm Ethiopian Gambella Sundried (The leftovers ;) )
135gm Brazil Pulped Naturals
Topped up with 230gm Java Ijen Sundried

It roasted really well and I pulled it just into RSC @ 18mins on the KKTO.  I'll leave them a few days to degas and give them ago.

Must order more beans but just not sure what to buy ;)  So much to try!!!
