    Brazilian daeterra (sp?) and popper roasting

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hey guys,

    Just looking for some help on roasting profiles and perhaps times for brazilian daeterra.

    I have been roasting it and i find that when i let it rest and smell it again, it does smell rather burnt as opposed to that pleasant coffee smell u get when u squeeze the valve.

    any tips would be great... I have a thermometer up to 250degrees, but i dont think it is working properly so i may get a thermocouple and digital thermometer for better temp measuring...

    i have tried listening to it too, however, i hear first crack... harder for me to hear second crack or know if ive even reached it...

    thanks in advance

    oohh Daterra ... which one?

    Id say your nose is giving you a good clue if you are smelling something burnt as opposed to the pleasant coffee smell you are looking for.

    Can you provide some more info about times to FC & SC & your temps if possible? Hard to guess what might be going on without a bit more info.
