  • My first roast

    Recently purchased a Behmor and this morning had my first go at roasting coffee.

    315g Peru Ceja de Selva Estate, settings were 1lb/B/P2

    1st crack at 5:00 and silent by 3:00, 2nd crack at 0:40 at which time I hit the cooling button, after 1 min of cooling I opened the door ajar.

    Turned out around CS9, basically no smoke at any stage, next time ill use 1lb/C/P2 to try avoid the heat ramp up between 1st and 2nd crack.

    Tasting notes to follow in a few days

    That is a really early first crack! On 1lb p2 c I get first crack at around 13 mins.

      I believe he means 5 minutes remaining - which sounds about right to me

          Yes times stated was the remaining duration for that program.

          Translated this means 1st crack after 15min and 2nd crack after 19:20.

          The only difference between the "B" setting and the "C" setting if you select 1lb/P2 is the duration, which goes from 20:00 to 22:30 if the manual is correct.

            Very even roast for your first try. This bean is a good starting point and this looks good from the photo.
            Good stuff

              "C" goes to 21:30 with 1lb P2 setting. But yeah - you roast looks nice!

                Some brief tasting notes...

                Balanced acidity with cocoa and caramel notes, makes a pleasant latte, a bit lacking in body, loads of crema but collapses fast.

                The mrs said it was the best piccolo she has had in a while 5 days post roast.
