    Tapachula El Tacana

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Anyone roasted this one yet? Did a 500g batch today and as per Andys description, I took it a little darker than normal (a minute into SC on a slow gradient). Pulled as rolling SC was audible and smoke visible.

    The roast looks pretty good, but even into SC its still only around CS 9. Not as dark as i was expecting. Will post some cupping notes in a couple of days.

    FC 10:00 -12:00 188-198deg
    SC 17:00 211deg
    Pulled 18:00 214deg.

    Ahhh.. found this roasting thread for the Mexican. Say, do you normally get FC at 190C and SC at 211 for your other beans?

    I normally get FC between 198 to 207C for most of my other beans but the Mexican I got FC at 190C and Im wondering if my DMM Temp probe is off... Why Im suspecting my probe is because my original probe died and I got a replacement probe from jaycar but the connectors werent the same so I had to re-wire the probe onto the right connectors.
    The other part of the equation is I have a preference for African beans (and Yemen) so the african are disproportionately high in my green stash which means 4 out of 5 roasts Ill do is african (or Yemen).

    Yep...since I changed breadmakers my readings have been consistently 5-10deg lower (FC around 190). Im guessing the shape of the bucket and my probe position are the main causes, so I think your probe is probably the issue as you say.
