  • Oil on bean surface

    I find that if I end up even with a little bit of oil on the surface that I find the roast way too dark, even a slight big of oil and I don't really want yo drink the coffee.

    Is this normal?

    Just posted something in the beanbay May release thread touching on this. I am fairly new to the roasting game but I found with the Malawi beans (based on Andy's advice to roast to CS10) that when I roasted these to the start of second crack where some oil spots came to surface after a few days, the results were amazing. A lighter roast with no oil spots was nowhere near as enjoyable to my tastes, whereas I found the opposite to be true with the PNG Wahgi I have also been playing around with. I can only assume this is very bean (and personal preference) specific...
