  • First roast...Please help..

    I have some great beans (I think) ..500 grams of
    Brazil pulp Natural.
    Ethiopian Guna Limmu.
    Indian Mysore plantation
    peru ceja de selva
    My newbie pack 

    first Question! these are all in snap lock bags should they be transfered to something that breathes a bit better?

    I also have 2.5 kilos of

    Sulawesi Toarco Jaya Triple Picked
    and PNG Kone Ka Estate AA grade

    I was thinking I would start of just with a Single Origin (png Kona ke) stop just after second crack has begun..
    Think I will start with 1/2 lb .
    I generaally like the darker expresso style .

    Any tips with blending these.  I am also thinking I may need a base!! Any tips on baking times or blends with these would be unreal...Thanking you..
    Oh I have a new/second hand behmoor roaster.

    I recommend you forget about blending for now and get to learn the taste of each one on its own.

    One step at a time grasshopper.

      Have you roasted yet?

      Once you launch yourself into roasting you are unlikely to go back to buying browns.

      In the Sydney climate your green beans should be ok in plastic for a while. In a tropical climate they might sweat.

      Search for all the strings on Behmor roasters. I use a popper and mainly roast the different beans separately and then blend. Others here prefer to blend pre roast.

      The last time I did that I was using the tail ends of several bags and while trying to get the slower beans ok, others got over roasted.

      I blended this mix with other lighter roasts and it was good.

      I have all the beans you list except the first two. They are all good.

      Do you have a CoffeeSnobs membership card with the roasting colours?

      They are not available at the moment but the picture is at: http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?num=1181455276

      I usually roast to CS 7, 8 or 9. It is a personal matter of taste. Andy gives a guide to how he likes each coffee in his description. You roast it how you like it. It’s what you get in the cup that matters.

      I usually make one coffee from the fresh roast, then after letting them gas off I put them away in a zip top bag for a few days before blending.

      You need never drink stale coffee at home again.

            It sounds like you have a Behmor. I have never used P2 or P4 for any beans - mostly just P3.

            I typically roast 340 g of beans and set the Behmor for 1 pound. Here is my standard routine, which gives me great results:

            "NO extension cord, start Behmor with 1# P3 A
            Add two minutes at start of program - total time of 20:00

            Rolling first crack with about 4 minutes left (varies widely)

            Set timer for 10 seconds - when timer goes off, open door fully
            Set timer for 30 seconds - when timer goes off, close door

            Set timer for 1:30 - when timer goes off, press cool to start cycle
            Set timer for :50 - when timer goes off, press stop, open door fully

            Remove chaff tray, remove drum, close door and press cool again
            Dump beans into bean cooler, takes about 1 minute to cool fully"

              Thank you,
              Just want to verify something do you open door whilst machine is still running straight after first crack.

              And presumably dump beans whilst still in cooling cycle ..Must be hot... I imagine you use oven mits ,,

                You are correct on both points. I use some high temperature gloves that I bought for use with my Weber smoker.
