    Re: Whats in my coffee roaster this week

    Saturday Night -
    1 x 225g Kenya Gitwe
    1 x 225g Ehtiopia Harrar Star

    Last night -

    2 x 225g Brazil Original Bourbon at different roast levels for blending attempt
    1 x 225g India Madikeri A

    roasting brew - Fat Yak Pale Ale

    Tonight -

    1 x 225g Java Blawan Estate WP1
    1 x 225g Sumatra Sipangan Bolon

    roasting beverage - Bombay Sapphire & Bitter Lemon

    These are all for friends and workmates (except the Harrar thats MINE), they dont have the most critical of palates but I think the practice is useful. As mentioned earlier in the week it was pointed out that I needed to extend time between FC and SC which I have done successfully. Overall the roasts are now much more even and smell much better as they cool. Looking forward to getting into the Harrar!

    Re: Whats in my coffee roaster this week

    Today I roasted 3 x 250 g of Ethiopian Limmu for a weekend away next week with some friends.

    These all went to rolling second crack - around CS9.

    Im still getting the hang of the shiny new Hottop, but having an absolute ball.

    Re: Whats in my coffee roaster this week

    Roasted 2 x 250g Sumatra Sipangan Bolon Grade 1 this week.
    First time i roasted this one i pulled the roast just before SC. In the cup it was really boring. Second roast, however, went like this:
    1min 45
    2min 60
    3min 75
    4min 105
    5min 126
    6min 145
    7min 160
    8min 185
    10min 191
    11 min 200
    First Crack 202
    12min 205
    13min 212
    14min 215
    15min 221 Second crack
    Pulled roast at 222

    Second day PR in a FW it was amazing! (Espresso base) Bitter sweet chocolate just punching straight through 200ml of milk. 3rd day and 4th day were just as good. 5th day flavours were not as pronounced. As an espresso it had plenty of body and a pleasently sweet, burnt chocolate aftertaste. Not much mouth feel though.

    This was exciting for me as a newbie roaster because previous roasts were coming out quite baked and flat.

    Cant wait for the next round!

    750g - Costa Rica Tarrazu "Royal"

    Taken to the cusp of Second Crack(SC) but not into it..... Not even one snap ;D

    This coffee is really unusual in that it develops an astonishing aroma within minutes of completing the roast. Really gets the juices going, now I have to wait :( ::)

    Due to a time error I was roasting beans while the Melbourne cup was running (I will catch the replay)

    Todays Roast
    600gr Sumatra Panjang Mandheling

    I still came first with a beautiful roast

    Andys description of this Sumatran bean

    Deep, rich and earthy without the funk, produces huge body and liquid chocolate type pours ooze from the group handle.
    Now to wait a few days to degas and get stuck into it *:D

    Re: Whats in my coffee roaster this week

    250g Salawesi @ rolling 2nd
    250g Ethiopian Harar just on 2nd
    250g PNG Kimel pb shy of 2nd
    250g PNG Kimel pb rolling 2nd

    I was extremely happy with the Sal as my previous experiences with anything Indonesian have not been good. The Harar was good as to be expected but the PNG got a bit out of hand...the lighter roast is not to my liking..a little bit portahouse steakish? The darker PNG on the other hand is very nice! so i ordered another 2kgs :)

    Still getting used to my hottop and probably still seasoning it i would assume? Is there a ballpark figure for seasoning?

    PNG SIGRI x 6kg

    Huge weekend of demo roasting at the AASCA WA championships, people in the industry and public have been quite intrigued with what we do with a breadmaker and a heatgun and the aroma of roasting coffee beans has been a drawcard :) ;) :D :D :D :D :D

    Hi all

    2kg Has Garanti roaster.

    Today I burnt another 1kg of Ethiopian Guji. It got away.
    The 1kg of Sumatra Mandheling Takengon Organic seemed to go OK.

    The Nicaraguan High Grown Bold from last week is nice and creamy and sweet.

    One roast of this mix
    220 gr of El Salvador SHG
    220 gr of India Mysore Nuggets

    Woot woot! My Gene Cafe arrived yesterday, so its with great pleasure to announce that 200g of PNG AA got a run last night.

    I had a laugh, I used to read these threads and shake my head at the impatience of those who couldnt wait a few days for the degas to occur.

    ...now I get it *:-[ *

    Hi all

    Last night I just did 1kg of Brazil Cafezinho Bourbon in the Has Garanti.
    All temps are from the multimeter TC probe inserted into the screw hole of the view window.

    Roast: Drop temp 160C, temp dropped to 85C but I had left the inlet flap open. FC at 9 mins and 204C. Rolling at 210C. Ended at 19 mins and 210C. I didnt hear SC but the beans cracked in the cooler so was probably just at SC or very close to. This time I managed a reasonably flat plateau from FC to SC and a good 10 mins from FC to near SC.

    Beans: look about CS10, maybe next time end a bit earlier. Nice uniform roast. Will taste mid next week.

    Mike

    On Saturday, roasted

    400gr Tanzanian Peaberry
    400gr Columbian la Piramade

    The peaberry is an incredibly small bean, about 1/2 - 2/3 the size of a normal coffee bean.

    I was a bit naughty and have opened up the bag on the tanzanian, the most wonderful floral notes, looking forward to trying it
