    A Great Mistake

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I recently roasted some beans and it came to the last roast, usually have 3 or 4 varieties of beans and roast 250g each time and that does my wife and I a few weeks.

    Well, I came to the last roast and only put in 100g of beans, was interrupted, came back to the roaster which had been on for 3 minutes, turned it off and put the rest of beans in (150g) and started the roaster again, well I thought, it could be a disaster or it could be a unique experience. Well, to my surprise, after the little over a week to de-gas I tasted the coffee (which has a two tone look because of the weird roasting time slots) and to my surprise it was absolutely fantastic in both taste and texture. A smooth nutty flavour with raisen overtones. Great mistakes can be made.

    Oh yes, for those who like to know, I use a Cafe Gene and it paid for itself twice by now, and the beans were from Papua New Guinea.

    Good work! That's why it is always good idea to try even when you think it isn't going to be good.
