    Purchased from where?

    Shiny means more oil has come to the surface.

    This can be because of a darker roast or because the beans are getting old.

    Agree... Unless I know teh roaster and the type of bean / roast... Lots of OIL is not what I look for to HAVE.

    However there are the odd exceptions.. But from the usual store or coffee franchise ... Be aware!

    Time to build a Corretto petar, you get a lot better control of your roasts and can roast a lot more each session.
    I dont like oily beans as they are a sign of going into second crack a fair way and the roast will dominate the taste, I always do a lighter roast to bring out the natural characteristics of the bean.
    Enjoy your roast experience
    cheers gm :)

    Behmor Coffee Roaster
    greenman this would make sense, I just picked up some Colombian greens today, and my first batch with them was oily where as my El Salvador-my previous beans were never oily. But I did let them go a little further into its second crack. And was wondering about why, and was thinking if you let them go further into the second crack does it result in more oils extracted.
    Next roast will pull it earlier and see how they look and taste compared with the 1st batch of Colombian.

    Thanks for the help. ;)
