    Hi, my name is Andrew and Im addicted to roasting

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi, my name is Andrew and Im addicted to coffee, and in particular roasting..

    Its been over a month since I purchased my last bag of roasted beans, but today I had a relapse...

    I inadvertently ran out of roasted beans and had to go to my dealer for a bag of Brown.....

    I felt ashamed and embarrassed, but once I walked in and smelt my dealer roasting... I started to lose it. I rushed up to the counter, whispered quietly my desire, payed my $$$$ and ran out...

    I pretty much ran all the way home, then realized I had driven to the shop... :o

    Once home I opened the bag dialed in the grinder and fired off a few shots..... Initally I was giddy with the beautiful aroma, and the syrupy pour, but after the intial high I tasted the demon and realized it wasnt what I was after...

    It wasnt my own....

    So I fired up my I-Roaster from my dealer ( thanks to Jack from Sorrentina* :) ) ...

    And roasted a batch (or 3) ..... Now for the wait and the horror of lookingin the cupboard and waiting..

    ...waiting for my next hit of my own glorious roasted beans* :D*

    hehe

    Actually I find some of the more acidic/fruity beans are palatable even in just a few (3-6) hours.. a typical Kenyan seemed ok.

    Depends on what youre roasting, I wouldnt roll the dice on the Monsooned Malabar that early ;)

    I had roasted up some malabar gold and had it on the same day as an espresso and flat white, I thought it tasted quite good!

    Cheers

    be impatient with your roasts and trying them I dare you

    plenty of beany goodness to be had on the same day with many beans ive found (either from curiosity or running out and having no choice... I had a laugh)

    Yep, that is usually my problem, out of roasted beans and need some coffee! Also, worth trying the same beans every day from early on to 3 weeks plus, its amazing how the flavours change and develop in some beans.

    Cheers

    Artman,

    To be honest MMG was one of the beans I roasted many times before I got something good but it is amazing at its best.

    Im curious what your typical profile is to compare notes :)

    If you wouldnt mind, what roaster and R1C/R2C/dump time/temp?

    PS Ive read most of the MM threads, from what I saw usually the trend was slow/prolonged roast

    Hi insomnispresso

    I use a corretto to roast, and the profile is below.* The profiles dont change too much between beans, they are all quite similar.* I normally get a slower rate of temp increase post first crack, but I just realised my JPGs havent been saving since I upgraded to Roast Monitor 2.39, must check it out, obviously a setting somewhere, and I havent got JPG profiles of other roasts of the IMMG.

    Cheers

    Hi artman, what heat gun do you use with the corretto? Is it a covered corretto system? I find some days I get a smooth-ish rate of temperature/profile and other days are a struggle.

    Thanks Artman, I see you have a 13.5min R1C and 18.5 R1C - I typically dont do durations like this (hottop) but youve inspired me to have a go at a similar roast with whats left of my malabar!! XD

    Probably this is the case because mostly I roast very light for espresso to maintain acidity, though I havent done a lot of experimentation with longer roasts.. my assumption is that acidity would definately be muted but on the malabar obv its not a concern. Any comments? Further wisdom? =)
