    Yeah and don't forget the barefoot 10km walk through 2m of snow at -30C to school, uphill *both* ways, on the days we were lucky enough to get off from the mill and were allowed to go to school!

    Heck, even our professional football (Yes soccer!) team early on learned to play in the snow. In their season opening home game of their very first season here (Played in an open stadium.) they played in -5C temps with a -15C wind chill and a snowstorm that dropped 15cm of the white stuff.

    Some observations and not very useful tips,

    Two polystyrene cups of hot chocolate poured over the heavily frosted screen of an Orange VW Beetle - in a -25C wind chill blizzard whilst taking a break and trying to restore some feeling in the fingertips after driving through 3m high cleared snow drifts, in an attempt to improve the 1cm wide viewing slit in the windscreen which occurred partly as a result of the heat exchangers and washer bottle packing in and the wipers just making it worse, does nothing but create chocolate ice coated glass – rock hard.
    So get two more hot chocolates from the automatic machine in the servo – one to help soften the frozen choc ice as you attempt to scrape it off the windscreen and the other to drink to help stave off the onset of hypothermia.
    Meanwhile – Very minimal comfort can be taken watching truck drivers, who had also stopped at the same spot for a rest break, lighting fires under their diesel fuel tanks because the fuel had frozen. Could not wait to get outta there!
    Earlier on the same day the snow had drifted completely over the front of my Aunties two storey terraced housed (little drifting at the back) covering the roof and drifting through any gaps into the loft space so much that the roof was at risk of collapse, spent 2 freezing hours clearing the loft then most of the roof.
    It was a very memorable day.
    BTW the auto vending machine only had hot chocolate working and it was running off a generator. Everything else was closed down.

    Yemen Al-Hajj Boa'an with Indonesia Sulawesi Blue.

    A Yemeni blend of a different type this time...

    Not up there with the Ismaili but still very nice in the cup.
    The gradient average for this batch was held to ~12.0 Deg.C/Minute up towards 1st-Crack.
    As per most of my roasts, took this to the cusp of 2nd-Crack then immediately dumped and cooled.
    Beautiful aromas coming off the cooler while this was happening.

    Should be a good'n so looking forward to some lovely brews in a little while.
    Blend info below with profile and post-roast photos attached.

    Blend Details:
    Yemen Al-Hajj Boa'an... 500g
    Indonesia Sulawesi Blue... 250g
    Roasted Weight... 642g
    Moisture Loss... 14.4%

    This was a pre-roast blend of Burundi Yandaro, Peru Chirinos San Ignacio and Guatemala Los Pinos. It seemed to roast up pretty nicely so Iím looking forward to trying it. Hopefully itíll be a good all rounder.

    Every now and then Iím surprised by something that turns out differently to how I expected. I was hoping to roast this blend mostly for espresso to go with my morning cappuccino, but as the Burundi and Guatemalan are getting a bit old I was careful not to over do it in the roaster. It can be easy to go too far in the Behmor and end up with something dark and bitter or baked. So I didnít push too far past first crack and when it came out I was fairly happy that Iíd probably got it about right.
    I tried it over the weekend in my morning coffee and was surprised to find it was really bright, sweet and fruity. I can handle a bit of brightness in a milk coffee, but this was too much even for me. So I wondered if would be better for soft brew and I took it to work yesterday to use in the drip filter machine. I wasnít disappointed as it turned out to be delicious!! Sweet, fruity and nicely balanced. So thatís where itíll stay and be put to good use. Iím only using an old Breville Aroma (although I use paper filters, pre heated water and a manual bloom), i can only imagine how good it would be in a really good brewer like the Brazen or Precision Brewer.
    So there you go, a good result in the end, just not the one I was expecting.

    This one has indeed turned out to be extremely nice in the cup.
    Overall, dominated by a raison/muscatel fruit acidity that has huge body and gobs of lovely rich dark chocolate.
    Finish is not huge but still there after about five minutes.

    Going to be fun to finish roasting the rest of this bean off with the Sualwesi Blue...

    Behmor 1600 Plus / Peru Ceja de Selva A

    Did two roasts over the weekend (well 3 actually but the first was a dud, way underdone!) of Peru Ceja de Selva A. Still a total newbie, maybe 15 roasts of which about 4 have been decent, but starting to get a feel for sounds/smells of some stages of the roast.

    Roast 1 - 225 grams of Peru Ceja de Selva A, 200 gram setting P2, first crack 6:30, after RC around 8:30 dropped heat to 50%, cooled with door open at about 12:30
    Roast 2 - 225 grams of Peru Ceja de Selva A, 200 gram setting P1, first crack 6:30, after RC around 8:30 dropped heat to 50%, cooled with door open at about 12:30

    Final weights were 194.4 grams (13.6% weight loss) and 193.8 grams (13.9% weight loss).

    Was roasting outside at night on our deck and it was cold about 18 degrees and windy. I did make a coffee from first batch drinkable but a bit bitter and sharp tasting. Will give them a few days to gas out and hopefully they turn out well.

    Keeping good records (including follow-up taste impressions) is key to being able to consistently turn out roast batches that hit the spot for you. Getting there is half the fun...

    Behmor 1600 Plus / Peru Ceja de Selva A

    Well got busy during the week, so didn't get to taste beans again until day 6 post roast, but been drinking the Peru all weekend. At days 6/7/8 making quite a nice latte, some notes of burnt caramel, bit of smokiness and some underlying choc notes. Maybe just a tad flat overall mouthfeel wise so maybe I need to try and develop them a bit slower. Some beans have a bit of oil coming out so I think I hit a nice dark roast.

    Guatemala Jacaltenango SHB with India Monsoon Malabar...

    Another simple blend this weekend...

    Have tried this combo a few times including using other Central American beans and a couple of times with Peru Ceja de Selva Estate. All of them work very well as black coffees and in milk coffees too.

    Anyway, took the batch to a couple of degrees before the start of 2nd-Crack using a slightly quicker profile than usual, and a short-ish development time. Immediately dumped and cooled as soon as the temp approached 220C (indicated). As always, loved the aromas coming off the cooler...

    Blend Details:
    Guatemala Jacaltenango SHB... 500g
    India Monsoon Malabar... 250g
    Roasted Weight... 650g
    Moisture Loss... 13.33%

    Roast profile and post-roast photos attached below...

    Eth.Gambella Ntrls with Indo.Sulawesi Blue and India El.Hills Pberry

    The above roast batch turned out to be a real beauty.
    Kind of savoury and fruity at the same time, huge body with just the right amount of acidity and a lingering sort of savoury-caramelly finish. Very intriguing and enjoyable...

    This week, heading back to an Ethiopian Blend, can never stay away for very long...
    Used a more or less standard profile for this batch which was taken to approx. 221.5C, prior to dumping into the cooler. Loads of chaff courtesy of the Gambella which one of our dogs was engaged in trying to catch before they hit the ground.
    Wonderful aroma coming from the cooler as always...

    Also carried out an annual service and maintenance routine on our Corretto hardware afterwards. Don't want it breaking down half way through a roast.

    Blend info with profile and post-roast photos attached below.

    Blend Details:
    Ethiopia Gambella Naturals... 300g
    Indonesia Sulawesi Blue... 250g
    India El.Hills Peaberry... 200g
    Roasted Weight... 645g
    Weight Loss... 14.0%

    Sounds good Mal.

    I actually roasted some Australian grown coffee last Friday. Itís a peaberry from Mointain Top Coffee. Iíve had their natural process offering before, but it was a few years ago so itís nice to be able to try some more of their coffee. Iím not sure that the roast went how I wanted it to, but it came out looking ok so who knows. Iíll give it a try in the next day or two.

    Will be interesting to read your impressions after you've had a chance to try it out.
    I know that from others who have roasted their non-peaberry beans, that the results can be be very fruity and sweet in the cup. Maybe the peaberry will be even more so...

    Did a cheeky little roast for filter, out on my front porch! Didn't even monitor temps, thought I'd just wing it!

    Just full heat, scaled it back at FC, ended it about 15 seconds into rolling first crack. It's pretty light, but I've done a few before around this depth that turned out to be absolutely stunning, and a similar bean too.

    First Gene Cafe roast tonight, bit rough as I did it blind with a quick read online before starting, I have done quite a few Behmor's roasts. This was also my first pre-blend.


    230 grams beans in (80g Peru + 80g Columbian + 35g Ethiopian Gambella + 35g Sumatra)

    Roasted outside about 20 degrees ambient temp

    240c setting on Gene Cafe and max roast time

    first crack 10 mins
    second crack 14:30?? maybe hit it not sure
    Cool 14:30, cooled for about 1 minute in roaster before dumping into tray and colander

    16% weight loss

    Tasted a shot after roast and tasted pretty good, bit sharp and acidic but some nice caramel/toffee flavours. Realised post roast I forgot to drop temperature at first crack but with the cold air outside I think the Gene Cafe was kind but could have developed the beans a bit more looking at some of the nice yellow smiles above.

    Looks good to me Ben and the profile is definitely within the ballpark for sure (going by the weight loss as well)...
    See how the flavour develops over the next few days, it should be really nice once it stabilizes.

    This has turned out to be a real surprise batch...
    It's terrific as a long black, whether out of the Brazen or using the Flair.
    Is also really nice as a Piccolo (Flair), cuts through milk very well and is just so tasty, interesting and sweet.
    Will definitely be roasting another batch up before too long...

    Nice looking roast Sullo, some nice fat yellow centers there, looks like they were developed well. What sort of temperature settings did you use on the Gene Cafe for that roast?

    Am still enjoying the Rati Hartmann Honey processed from CS, lovely as a single origin for our morning soy FW.
    These beans have a dip in ROR just following first crack and then they tend to take off. I had started off easing way back on the heat trying to coast them through to cooling, however more recently i've found if i approach first crack with slightly less speed, i can keep the heat on them and they don't take off any more than normal. Amazing smell roasted about 12c past FCS.

    Did the worlds biggest coffee tasting (James Hoffman) last month, made me realise how important it is when tasting to be comparing roasts rather than trying to critique a roast by itself. So I have been playing with variables on the same beans, and then tasting them over time together, definitely helps if you're trying to hone in on a profile. good fun. It makes me appreciate the benefit in using a commercial roaster where the tryer would allow for cupping samples to be taken throughout a roast, allowing for the roaster to find the potential end temperature in only 1 roast. Using the quest all i can do is pick varying end temps and compare. It's slow and I don't tend to taste much of a range of different ending temps.

    Another thing i realised after the Hoff's tasting is that my favourite coffee is definitely Kenyan, have been lucky enough to taste a few good/great Kenyans lately as filter brews, and they really do blow my socks off.

    Just to get me by for a little
    Reporting back on this one, tried V60 and Aeropress, very pleasantly surprised!

    It took a few different V60 methods to get it right as it had this strange tad bit of harshness that I couldn't figure out.. went a bit coarser and dropped to 92 degrees, and this cup is stunningly delightful. Strange phrase, but it is! And none of the cups have had any ounce of raw/greeny/grassiness/sourness which is what I was thinking would happen. Wasn't overpowering, was silky, light, sweet, with berries, was caramelly, wine-like, floral, could not pick any strangeness or taints in this cup!

    V60 is one I'd always struggled to figure out at times, the Rao method was always good, but I never really tinkered enough with grind to be honest, thinking I was always in the ballpark anyway. Using my Quamar Q50P for all my filter brews (as it's only stepped adjustments), going coarser and dropping the temp a bit was the ticket here!

    I know it's a pretty light roast, but very happy with the results!

    Sullo: I did a 250 gram roast of Colombian Volcan Galeras in the Gene Cafe last night. After talking to someone has done a bunch of Gene Cafe roasts, gave me a simple 220 degrees / 19 mins recipe. Gave it a try and cooled at 17.5 minutes, nice roast 14.5% moisture loss, will taste in the morning. Pic below;

    Simon i'm finding the lighter the roast, the longer it needs to rest. Sounds like you nailed it

    You know what, that's a good point and it didn't occur to me. It's possible that the longer rest was a big factor in the change... I think it was day 5 that I first tried it, the next few days it still had that harshness. We're at about 2 weeks now and wow...

    Hmm interesting!

    Ps. Good to have ya back round here Janus!

    Thanks mate, i still roast regularly and have been following the forum when i have time. I just struggle to find time to post with kids and a busy life..
    I picked up some nice Kenyan recently, and roasting for filter it was pretty roasty and harsh for the first week, after which it gradually improved to the point where it's a really nice balanced cup and now at 11 days it's drinking beautifully, clean with no roastiness and lovely aroma. Think i'll try extending the roast a little as it could do with a bit more sweetness. To regulate the roast time i'm mostly just adjusting the loading temp, not sure if this is the best way to do it.

    Have been brewing using a Clever Dripper which was recommended by a friend, i'm finding easy to get consistent results with.

    Yemen Ismaili with Indonesia Sumatra Mandheling Triple Sort.

    Blend Details:
    Ethiopia Gambella Naturals... 300g
    Indonesia Sulawesi Blue... 250g
    India El.Hills Peaberry... 200g
    Roasted Weight... 645g
    Weight Loss... 14.0%
    This turned out to be most enjoyable.
    Very tasty right from the get-go with lots of fruitiness, nice acidity, masses of body, a touch of umami and a long lingering chocolaty finish.

    This week though, heading back in to nearly the bottom of our bag of lovely Yemen Ismaili, turned into a Mocha Java with the addition of some newly acquired Sumatra Mandheling Triple Sort from Andy. Long time since we've enjoyed a Mandheling bean in our house so can't wait to dig in...

    Once again, a relatively gentle roast profile taken to just before 2nd-Crack starts then stopped and cooled.
    Kind of a weird profile following on after 1st-Crack though. Heat settings were maintained where they were supposed to be on the HG but during this portion of the profile, a very strong and persistent hot wind started up. May be coincidental but nothing else was out of the ordinary. Anyway, will see what happens when the beans are ready to try in a little while.

    Blend info below with copies of the Profile and Post-Roast photos attached...
