    What's a good "learner bean" in the BeanBay?

    Time to start thinking of roasting again and if I go for it, I'll probably need some practice. What's a bean that is affordable but shouldn't be too hard to get a good roast out of? I enjoy medium/dark roast, flat white

    The Colombian Volcan Galeras is a great bean, roasts really well, nice even roast and great flavour profile.

    I found the Kenya AA to be a great starter for roasting bold espresso that would come through milk well. Easy to roast and rewarding flavours.

    I find the Peru Ceja de Selva a good one.
    Roasts pretty evenly. Can hear first and second cracks well. Not too chaffy. Tastes great.

    +1 on the Peru. Very forgiving across many different profiles.
