    Three-way super smooth blend

    Start by roasting India Elephant Hills AA, Panama Rati Hartman Black Honey and Ethopia Limmu, all to a few seconds after FC (separately).
    Now find the Niche Zero grind setting for each (the setting at which 18g gives a pour of around 25 secs and 28g on a Breville DB). I get 17, 17, 18 respectively.
    Now take 6.1g of each and grind together on a Niche Zero setting of 17.
    Tamp nice and hard and level, the Breville DB went 28 seconds for 20g (a little more constipated than usual).
    Shot poured directly into microwaved milk plus sugar as I normally have it.

    Produced the smoothest cuppa I've ever tasted...

    Thanks for sharing, what roaster did you use?

    I have the Behmor 1600 plus. I routinely roast 400g with it, all the talk you see about how you shouldn't do more than 250-300 I think applies more to the 110 volt version...

    The Behmor I have with the upgraded 1600 Plus front panel now easily roasts 400gm. I even have to knock time off the standard profiles on occasion. I use 430gm quite often on the 400gm setting depending on which bean i'm roasting. Just be sure to strictly follow the maintenance instructions with cleaning and doing a "dry roast" every 5 roasts as per instructions.

    Utilise the Rosetta Stone timing feature at the start of first crack by pressing "C" to reset timer to the programmed first to second crack theoretical standard interval.

    Yes I use 'C' all the time when roasting bigger batches. The inbuilt 'max timer' that makes it hard to do large batches is easily circumvented by pressing 'C' each time the time gets low, even after '+' has stopped working. Also after using the machine for about 8 months, roasting for four people (about 2.5kg per week), I have yet to do a 'dry roast'. Every few months I wipe the inside of the roaster with a cloth that has a bit of methylated spirits on it, takes two minutes. Looks like new.

    Refer this link and scroll down to "Key Maintenance" - https://behmor.com/knowledge-base/be...k-start-guide/

    The longer you leave cleaning and not doing dry roasts, the more oil build up you'll have and the harder it will be to remove later as it gets baked on (in places you can't see too).

    Behmor state that this can have an impact on performance.

    They also recommend a non-toxic cleaner like Simple Green which you can get from Bunnings - https://www.bunnings.com.au/simple-g...eaner_p4470387

    Aside from the toxicity issue with using Metho, if you dry burn after using Simple Green there won't be any flavor taint.
