    Indian Mysore Roasting Times

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all.

    I am on about my 10th roast now using a Crazy Popper and a Green Bay starter pack. I have noticed the Indian Mysore Nuggets seem to take a lot longer than the other beans (nicuraguan high grown) and hence Im tending to cut short - after 15 minutes or so (it is still cold outside) I get nervous and switch off.

    I havent got my member card yet so dont know the rating but they are nearly as dark as the Brown beans I got in my other sample pack. So far they taste ok - just wondering whether this bean is better as a dark roast and if I should try running into second crack. ??

    15 minutes for a Crazy Popper is slow if you havent modified it.

    I recommend you try running to no more than 20 seconds into second to at least see if you prefer the taste that way.

    I did a Mysore batch a month ago but only took it to just on SC.
    It was my first roast of Mysore and I dont have any more.

    Yes it seems slow compared to what I have read on the forum, and I guess thats a good thing. :-/

    I havent modded anything but have only reasted so far in winter. Ive found that I need to cover the chimney if I want to bring on the first crack. I havent got a thermometer and have been worried about getting "slow baked" beans so generally after 8 or so minutes I cover up the chimney to get things moving. Once the popping stops I take the cover off and let it run, but have found it hard to get to second crack or to get really dark coulour at all with these beans.

    The other beans I ran for around 15 minutes and got to the point of nearly burning, but not quite - had to pick out 5 or so beans from a batch of 150 grams. Tasted good though.

    You are lucky in a way that it runs a bit cold.

    Winter in Sydney didnt slow mine that much.
    Where are you?
