  • Help me roast correctly

    Hi all,
    I'm after some tips of how to make my roasts better and more tailored to the beans I have.
    I've just received some Yemen Mocha Ismaili and it's by far the most expensive green beans I've ever bought. So I'm a little worried that my roasting techniques will ruin it.

    I have the Behmor and at the moment I just use the same settings (that I got off here) for everything.

    I put 200g of green beans into the basket, hit '1/2' for half a pound of beans, then 'B' and then 'p2'
    Now apart from the weight measurement I have no idea what the other settings really do. I listen for second crack and then hit 'cool'. If it's cold I add more time until second crack.

    So, does anyone have any tips on how best to get the most from my new beans?

    Thanks

    Not taking the Yemen to second crack will probably give you better results in the cup. Yemen coffee bean size range is a bit wide making over roasting easy on the Behmor. What is your usual brew method?

      Hi ooby and welcome to posting.

      Don't take advice from someone who hasn't roasted this bean. Read this instead:

      You could also type it into the search bar at the top of the page and see what other references you come up with.

      Have a look in Matt's excellent thread here too :

        Oh I forgot to add that I have roasted all types of coffee from Yemen on my modded Behmor. I like the Ismaili but my favorite Yemen coffee is the Red Cherry Marqaha. A bit pricey but well worth it.

          Thanks for the reply. I'm not sure by what you mean with 'usual brew method'?
          I have a Rancilio grinder and Silva v3 machine - is that what you mean

              In your case it is espresso. That is also my usual brew method. Yemen coffee makes excellent espresso. Another tip you might find useful when roasting Yemen coffee on a Behmor, give the loaded roasting drum a good shake over the sink to get rid of the small broken bits if there is any. They can get stuck on the drum mesh and turn into charcoal during the roasting process. At best it will fall off and end up in the chaff tray. Before my mods, I too used P2 profile on the Behmor for the 4 different type of Yemen coffee that I have roasted.
