    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    OK~~I found 300g of kenya A bean that i bought last year. I want to finsih them now. This time i want to roast it for syphon not espresso. Does anyone has any suggestion about the roasting profile? I reckon Ill roast this bean as the way i used to, except ill stop the roast @ rolling FC. How does it sound?

    Re: Syphon roast

    Hi Tony,

    had a Kenyan of some sort at St Ali in a Syphon which was very light (similar to what you are talking about. Toshi was using around 24g/150ml ground very course and only steeped for 40-45 seconds. Was fairly good in the cup but the flavour was a little under developed too as it was only 2 days post roast.

    Personal preference is to roast just on the first snaps of SC or just before, but maybe I should try a roast like this too.

    I would have to agree, this is certainly the roast level I enjoy best in my early learning days with this process.

    Re: Syphon roast

    I tried my espresso roast on a syphon the other day (First snip of SC), it tasted quite strong. And i think the body is over power other flavours. And this time i want to have a bit more acid in my coffee. Thats why i want to roast it light

    Re: Syphon roast

    Comes down also to not all bean types suit Syphon. Any of the heavier espresso bean types or bold beans are not good Syphon ones. That being said I quite like Wahgi or the Aussie 478 roasted light for a rich full flavour in the cup.

    Preference is like you say higher acid, light spices more fruity flavours for my palate (never tried your Kenyan BTW)

    Re: Syphon roast

    Im interested in Tonys original suggestion.

    Surely someone can advise on pulling a roast as early as RFC or just after. I havent been that game to try it yet. Just need a little more encouragement.

    Re: Syphon roast

    A hot tip I got passed on is to try to aim to get to FC under 10 mins (on a corretto), dont go anywhere near SC. Personally if youre gonna bother roasting for syphon or most other filter types of coffee, I dont see the point in roasting into SC (generally). If you want caramelised beans, just use the generic and keep em for the spro machine. If you really want to highlight the acidity and taste all the bean has to offer, dont burn it away, experiment pulling it half way to SC.
