  • Tanzanian Peaberry

    Tried roasting for the first time today with my popcorn popper.  I think Ive roasted the Tanzanian Peaberry too dark.  I thought this would be ideal from the websites I read.  The colour resembled a Full City roast, and was a couple of minutes after the second crack.

    Rather sharp, tangy but has a burnt after taste.

    Just curious how dark others like to roast this bean?

    Welcome "spoke".... [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

    Sweet Marias has some great info on a recent Tanzanian Peaberry crop so is probably a good place to start. Something to keep in mind though, is the "rest period"... Try roasting a few batches to the same level and then bagging separately. Start on one after a couple of days and then work your way through the batches as you finish each one. I think you will be quite impressed with how the character changes over time and will allow you to decide when the bean tastes best to you. An exercise well worth doing in my opinion.

    All the best

      A "couple of minutes" after second crack is a fair bit--especially with a popper, so it may be too dark. Id suggest you try taking a roast just to second crack or maybe 30 seconds in at the most.

      I got a couple of nice roasts of Kenyan done as above before I went and bought a roaster.

        Youre right...the beans did taste significantly different and much better after a day or two.  This may sound silly, but I find all this terribly exciting.  I cant wait to roast my second batch, this time I think Ill keep it lighter...LOL!!

          Not silly at all "spoke"...

          Always get excited about new roasts, new blends, new profiles, new beans, new crops.... The list never ends ;D ;D
