Im not sure if I qualify for the "lovely CSer" description but if it was my choice, Id go the Gene Cafe! Without downplaying the Pullman or Jetblack contribution, the GeneCafe is a more valuable prize and roasting is definitely something worth getting involved in.Originally Posted by 2B3E2C37363A5F0 link=1260960964/0#0 date=1260960964
The trick with roasting is to prepare ahead so the beans have rested for long enough once you have finished your current beans.
But ... also try your beans at various times after roasting to find out what your optimum rest time is.
Congrats to you and the other prize winners.
