  • Perfect weather for roasting.

    41°C forecast here today, perfect weather for roasting.

    Just completed a batch of 750 grams of Ethiopian Gambella Sundried, took it almost to second crack, not the most even roast I've ever done, will be interesting to see what its like in the cup.

    You can do even Gambella roasts?

    The way things are going these days, you soon won't need to use a roaster during summer. Just stick the beans in a bag and leave it on the dashboard for an hour or so.

      Nope, not this batch any way, have had them in the past, about 4 years ago, don't remember them being particularly troublesome back then.

        I'd try them in a brew first before making too many assumptions...
        Some of my most enjoyable results in the cup have been with using beans that appeared distinctly non-uniform.

          Thanks Mal, will get back with my thought when I break into them.

            One of the first beans i purchased going back years ago now and was not disappointed. I havent ordered in some time and this thread makes me want to get some to try.

              Just roasted the same bean- almost no warm up required with the outside temp!!

                Yep, I had to back the heat right off after first crack to prevent it running away.

                  I reckon this is my favourite beanbay bean and it's always been reasonably uneven looking for me.
                  And to stay on topic here's the weather round here, been like this for the past month. I've increased my batch size in the behmor to 440g (from a low of around 380 in the dry season)

                    At least you can look forward to a cool weekend mate...
                    We were greeted on our first Christmas in Pannawonica, to a week of daytime temperatures above 50C...
                    Was that ever a shock to the system after living and working in a climate that averaged 25C for most of the year.

                      Ouch.

                      39 here tomorrow, but next week I'm going to Scotland for a while. Should be a touch cooler.

                        Yep, provided the rain comes (hasn't yet).

                          It's not so much the temp, which is bad enough, but the constant humidity. If you're not used to it, it can literally drive you crazy. Then it rains... then it's hot, humid and wet haha
                          Recall I spent a week working in the Kimberley in January. Phew...

                            Yes but the good thing is there's no surprises with the weather, hot and wet for 4 months, warm and dry for 4 months and bloody hot and dry for 4 months
