    I blended before roasting, and it seems pretty evenly roasted inspite of using 3 different beans!

    Think you might find that the Robusta is going to be under-roasted though mate, even if the colour appears to be similar. Always best to roast Robusta on its own to ensure it gets what it deserves...

      Next time I might roast 117 grams of robusta on its own, and the roast brazil, guatemala and burundi to blend. To get a 10 % robusta blend, I think I'll roast about 500 gr of the other beans and bin the rest of the robusta...

        I keep a Popper to use for just roasting the smaller quantities of Robusta.
        Usually take it to the start of Rolling 2nd-Crack and then set it aside for 10-14 days...
        Works out well for me as I usually roast my Arabica beans/blends on a fortnightly basis.

          Great idea! Maybe I'll have a go in the oven with a small batch of robusta next time.

            Probably do better using a small frying pan while stirring with a wooden spoon...
