    Must have been the day for it
    750g Ethiopian Biftu with a faster ramp and dropped just before second crack, and 350g Yirgacheffe for filter (off camping this week with the aeropress!) dropped at 213°. Tried straight out of the roaster, and already tasting great!

    Just popped on a monsooned Malabar aa ... 300g on p4c on the Behmor. Haven't really used this roast profile much, but it took a lot of energy into first crack, which then rolled straight into second crack. The beans have come out a lot darker than I am used to seeing, quit oily. Hit cooling at a rolling second crack with 4 min still on the clock. Definitely an outdoor roasting bean - heaps of smoke.

    Moisture loss was 16.2%

    Time for some Yemen...

    Well, in a blend with some very nice Indonesian beans.

    Took this quite slowly into the first few snaps of 2nd-Crack, just as copious volumes of blue smoke started to discharge from the Corretto. Quickly dumped and cooled and tasted a few brown beans - Yum...

    Copy of profile below with the usual photos included. The 'wonky' trace after 1st-Crack is purely down to my lousy hand control of the heatgun. Should still be alright I hope.

    Green Weight... 650g
    Roasted Weight... 550g
    Moisture Loss... 15.38%

    Ethiopian Ghimbi - Indonesian Sulawesi Torajah

    Another roast today, for our son who has recently completed a several week tour....

    Decided that an Ethiopian/Indo blend would be the go, so got hurriedly organised to get this one done.

    Basically, a similar profile to the Yemen/Indo blend above and once again pulled and cooled just as the blue smoke and a couple of 2nd-Crack snaps could be heard. Should be a good'n...
    Profile attached but no photos this time I'm sorry - Forgot the camera when setting up...

    Ethiopia Ghimbi... 400g
    Indonesia Sulawesi Torajah... 250g
    Roasted Weight... 550g
    Moisture loss... 15.38%

    Going the "Baggins Blend" this time … ie all the bits left behind in various Bag Ends!
    So this one from memory has some Eth Sidamo, Thai Chiang Mai and Indo Blu Batak, 750g all roasted together with a faster ramp to just before second crack…
    Just tried as an aeropress (though not really roasted with filter in mind) and had some nice vanilla and red fruit aromatics - looking forward to the espressos when the last of the Biftu works through the grinder … ahhhhh the Biftu! Amazing bean…

    Happy roastings

    Was that a 50/50 ratio Mal? Got some Yemen here - and wondering if I'm game enough to blend!

    G'day Matt...

    Same ratio as for the Ghimbi blend above mate. Seems to work really well for these varieties...

    I can really vouch for the Yemen/Sulawesi blend, an absolute ripper.
    Will ask my son what he thinks of the Ghimbi blend in a few days time.

    Nice. I'll give it a shot - Yemen with some Indo … don't know if I've got any Sulawesi Blue left, but the Blue Batak is fairly similar from what I've tasted, so might try that…

    And my current Baggins blend is great! Super sweet chocolate… mmmmmm… don't you just love those un-repeatable stumble across blends!

    Following Mal's recommendation, a small 225 Yemen and 125 Indo Blu Batak, roasted gently and dropped at 221° - a little earlier than usual but just getting the first snaps of the Yemen.
    Might sample through the Lido tomorrow - just to check it hasn't gone off!
    Cheers Matt

    The Yemen/BeanBay was great - huge choc bomb
    Big roasting day after the great Millthorpe Anzac march… 3 back to back 750g batches. Two blends (Yunan/PNG Org/TanzMac and a PNG Org/Gambella) and a Brasil Yellow Bourbon. Then blended the Mocha Java-ish and Brasil for a smooth chocolate espresso surprise!

    Have a great weekend!
    Cheers Matt

    Bolivia 8 Estrellas, Mexico Terruno Co-Op Nayarita Blend

    Roast again today...

    This time, thought I would blend the two bean varieties gifted to me a little while ago. Namely, the Bolivia 8 Estrellas and the Mexico Terruno Co-Op Nayarita (the huge cocoa bomb).
    Took the roast quite gently until just before the first snaps of 2nd-Crack would be heard and then pulled and immediately cooled. Lovely aromas on the approach to 2nd so now just have to wait for a few days to sample the wonderful delights awaiting me...

    Profile and photos of the completed roast attached below.
    Blend ratio (Green weight)...
    Mexico Terruno Co-Op Nayarita... 400g
    Bolivia 8 Estrellas... 250g
    Roasted weight... 544g
    Moisture loss... 16.31%

    My son and his girlfriend are really enjoying the Ghimbi/Sulawesi blend, and she's a CoffeeSnob too from Brazil and knows her coffee. So, all good...

    A roast from Thursday (Columbia Jacoba - baseline profile - courtesy of a generous Canberra benefactor ) and today (Indo Blu Bianca - an experiment taking it just into second crack to try and mellow some of the lemon sherbert zing!)…

    Tried the Columbia through the Lido today as a double ris - very smooth, darker caramel with good acidity retained. Looking forward to seeing it develop.

    20150430-ColumbiaLaJacoba.jpg 20150502-Indo-Blu-Bianca.jpg

    Enjoying the split blends from last time currently - the PNG Natural / Gambella is lovely

    Happy roasting!

    I didn't really like them as a single origin, but they are absolutely phenomenal as a base bean. Maybe i just didn't roast them quite right as an SO. I've currently got a 50:50 blend of Venezuela:China in the grinder which I'm loving.

    Yemen Ismaili with Indo. Sulawesi Torajah Blend

    The cooler weather has me hankering for some more Yemen so back to my favourite Mocha blend again...

    No photos this time as the beans look much the same as earlier Yemen/Indo blend batches but have included the profile.

    This time, I reverted to my preferred Yemen/Indo Profile as the previous 'quicker' profile didn't produce quite the same results as past batches. Stopped the roast at the first couple of snaps of 2nd-Crack. Will be checking in a couple of days as I'm almost out of my last roast batch.

    Yemen Ismaili... 400g
    Indonesia Sulawesi Torajah... 250g
    Roasted Weight... 550g
    Moisture Loss... 15.4%

    The Yemen does seem to respond well to a nice gentle profile

    For sure Matt....

    Last time I thought, just for fun, I'll try a slightly steeper ramp to 1st-Crack as I hadn't roasted the Yemen that way before - You don't know if you don't go there ... Well, while that batch was good, it didn't quite have the richness and wasn't as well balanced when using the gentler profile. In a few words - Not doing that again...

    Had a similar experience with the Maui Mokka - nailed it first time with my baseline profile by accident, and thought it might get more fruit with a faster ramp - just lost body and richness… but as you say - don't know till you try!

    Back to the wonderful, rich complexity that I'm used to from this almost legendary combo... Gotta love Yemen/Indo blends...

    Two pre-blend 750g roasts.
    A Yunan/Waghi/Yirg and a Columbia Inza/Indo Blue Bianca blend, both standard profiles…

    Happy roasting!

    No roasts this week...

    Our eldest young'n shouted me a 500g bag of Andy's finest Yemen... Yum.

    Certainly looking out for this one and a huge thanks out to KennyM... (and Andy of course).

    Peru Ceja de Selva Estate - Monsooin Malabar

    It's been so long since my last roast, I'd almost forgotten the routine...

    Anyway... Decided to roast the last of my much favoured Peru CdS with a small amount of MM for added body and earthiness.
    Used a gentle profile up to 1st-Crack coupled with a short ramp up to before 2nd-Crack; pulled and cooled just as the first wisps of blue smoke started to appear.

    Photos and profile attached below...

    Peru CdS... 480g
    Monsoon Mlbr... 170g
    Roasted Weight... 556g
    Moisture Loss... 14.46%

    This combo is an absolute ripper in the cup...
    Beautiful aroma while grinding, very rich, dark red and gloopy pour as a ristretto.
    Plenty of body thanks to the MM, coupled with a lovely soft spiciness and a balanced citrusy acidity that tingles slightly on the tongue, and then a lovely extended cocoa finish that is detectable for a half-an-hour or more.
    Very, very more-ish indeed...

    Well, had a church blokes weekend away (around 75 guys) and put my hand up for an informal cafe
    Around 60 cups later, mainly F/W's but with a few doubles riz's thrown in and some aeropress samplers, seemed to have lots of happy campers. Even had a few leftover beans to sample at home!
    Roasted three batches - a slow roasted Brazil + Columbia then combined with a faster roasted PNG Organic + Eth Biftu gave an amazing chocolate bomb with a hint of fruit for espresso. And then a filter roasted Kenya (350g batch) roasted to 215°…
    Great weekend overall!
    Cheers Matt

    Coffee-Roast Sunday for me today...

    Two batches this time; one for me and one for our eldest son...
    Our son's coffee was a PNG/Ethiopia blend that makes for a very tasty espresso, and mine was a PNG/Ethiopia blend too but slightly different and not tried before; should be good though...
    As is my preference these days, both batches were gentle profiles; the first just to the first few snaps of 2nd-Crack and the second just before 2nd-Crack at the very start of blue smoke emission. Profiles for both batches appear below but no photos I'm sorry...

    1st Batch:
    PNG Wahgi Peaberry... 400g
    Ethiopia Ghimbi... 250g
    Roasted Weight... 542g
    Moisture Loss... 16.62%

    2nd Batch:
    PNG Wahgi AA... 400g
    Ethiopia Biftu Gesha... 250g
    Roasted Weight... 546g
    Moisture Loss... 16.0%

    Tanna island

    Today I am drinking Tanna Island coffee roasted 6 days ago in my popper. I bought the greens from Andy during the Vanuatu Tanna Island - Disaster Fundraiser.


    I believe that it is as nice as any coffee that has recently passed my lips.

    Couldn't wait any longer for this one to keep on developing and degassing...

    In a nutshell, it is a ripper. Lovely berry notes, with cocoa contributed by the Biftu Gesha coupled with additional stone fruit piquancy and sweetness from the Wahgi AA. Altogether, it is simply a rich, complex and beautiful cuppa that begs one to keep on wanting more. Glad I experimented with this simple combo...

    Hi all

    My wife and I really are fans of PNG Wahgi :-)
    This week though I roasted 1.3 kg of my PNG Kona Ka from Feb 2011 to finish it off. Nice sweetness with some cocoa. Works well as a ristretto or a machiato.

    Wow!!!

    This is turning into an absolute fruit bomb of a coffee . For me at least, it has turned out to be one of the most delightful blends I have tried in a long while, and it is so simple. Nothing wrong with simple of course...

    Hard to break away from my preference for East African/Indonesia combinations...

    Another one today, this time comprising Ethiopia Gambella Naturals and Sulawesi RK Torajah. Both are beaut on their own but really hit the spot for me when blended. Taken to the first few snaps of 2nd-Crack via the usual gentle profile (copied below) and then immediately cooled. Just need to wait a few days now - Not easy...

    Ethiopia Gambella Naturals... 400g
    Sulawesi RK Torojah... 250g
    Roasted Weight... 554g
    Moisture Loss... 14.77%

    A Bandit Blend, slower roasted to try get rid of some cold-weather sourness (with wind chill it was -3 when I roasted last night!) and a small batch of Yemen… MMMmmmm

    Interesting factoid - first crack and second crack both happened 3-4° earlier than usual in the extreme cold - makes it hard to match a profile!

    Yes mate...

    A bit of a nuisance alright.
    The only way to effectively get around the problem would be to use an RTD Probe with a compatible interface for data logging. Not cheap unfortunately unless you enjoy playing around with micro-controllers, etc...

    Hi all

    Just did today 1.1 kg of Flores Gunung Inerie and 1 kg of Java Kalistat Estate, both from March 2011.
    The aroma of the Java Kalistat during roasting, just after FC has a sweetish aroma, I can't quite pick what the aroma is like. Took both to just on SC.

    A real beauty (as always), this blend.

    Lovely rich earthiness, coupled with berry fruit high notes and a lovely dark chocolate finish.
    Plenty of body to carry the flavours all around the palate and a lovely balanced acidity that
    performs equally well as a straight espresso or through a latte. There's a reason why this
    type of blend remains high on my favourite list...

    Time for a bit of a change (in the cup)...

    Roasted another simple blend today that I have found works really well in the cup for me.
    Has great body, sweetness and acidity when taken to just the edge of 2nd-Crack (just a couple of errant snaps here and there), using the gentle profile picture below...

    Blend consists of -
    PNG Wahgi AA... 400g
    Monsoon Malabar... 250g
    Roasted Weight... 552g
    Moisture Loss... 15.1%

    Just into one of my weekend roasts.

    60/40 India MM + Eth Ghimbi. Big crema, smooth, sweet & buttery with a hint of cocoa. Fabulous as a FW. Maintaining just a hint of acidity… pretty jolly good as a double riz too!

    For those who follow my ramblings, I've used a 'cold-weather slow' baseline profile for these roasts - and it is pretty much perfect

    Also in the cupboard are some bags fo Kenya Naturals AA roasted for espresso - that'll be a change from the above!

    What is it about Mocha Java Blends being so good?!?!

    Ethiopian Sidamo/Sumantran Mandheling with milk. So so easy to drink. Great body/mouthfeel, smooth, sweet, nutty and finishing with some chocolate. It begs for more...

    Hi all

    Today I did 1.2 kg of some August 2011 Sulawesi Toarco Jaya. Have just 1.2 kg left to finish it off then. Took this to just shy of SC using the Has Garanti roaster.

    The Flores Gunung Inerie I did a few weeks ago turned out suberb. Has a nutty sweet taste. Took some to work and we had a taste runoff between french press plunger and aero press. Its the first time I had tried aero press. Now I can understand why its described as a cleaner or crisper taste. Its just that little bit smoother on the tongue but also has a bit more lift. Hard to describe and its not a big difference. If I didn't have the two cups side-by-side to compare and instead had one one day and another another day I'd be hard pressed to remember the difference. But in a blind test I think I'd be able to pick the two.

    Work person liked the pic of my 2kg HG roaster - thought it was "steam punk" :-) as its a classic beaten copper and brass one.

    Two roasts today...

    One for me and one for our eldest son (Ken)...
    First batch is a blend I've done recently which Ken rather likes, so have repeated the offering. A blend of PNG Wahgi Peaberry and Ethiopia Ghimbi. The second one, also a repeat that I particularly enjoy, is a blend of Ethiopia Gambella Naturals and Sulawesi RKT.

    Slightly different profile for each, which I have attached below including photos as per usual.

    PNG Wahgi Peaberry... 450g
    Ethiopia Ghimbi... 200g
    Roasted Weight... 548g
    Moisture Loss... 15.7%

    Behmor Coffee Roaster
    Another Roasting Sunday...

    Managed to grab some India Elephant Hills AA this week so naturally, have to try it out in one of my 'standby' blends.
    Used my standard profile for untried blends/varietals and pulled as copious volumes of Blue Smoke started to emanate from the roaster as a couple of lazy 2nd-Crack snaps could be heard as I dumped the beans into the cooler.

    Blend Details...
    India Elephant Hills AA... 300g
    Ethiopia Ghimbi... 200g
    Indonesian Sulawesi RKT... 150g
    Roasted Weight... 548g
    Moisture Loss... 15.7%
