    Mulch... of half-roasted beans

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Time to fess up. After waiting a few months since my last attempt at roasting for my frustration to wear off, my attempt this time is too mild.

    Im on my second lengthy interrupted load today... admittedly without my DMM which Ive loaned to another CSer.

    Trying to be zen just aint workin for me!

    Creating extra expensive mulch for my garden.

    :-[ It helps if the heat gun is on 500*C, not 300, as my husband rightly observed.

    His first roast has turned out perfectly. :-[ *PNG Wahgi, here we come :)
    (fess up No. 2 - my 1.2kg of PNG is now in the garden, I can hear the outcry from devoted CSers all the way over here).

    I think weve worked out that hes gonna be the roaster in our family. Ill just stick to the fine art of nuancing the already roasted coffee into the cup.

    I have now completed 4 roasts and sort of screwed up 3 of them! ::) The first three were drinkable but pushing CS 11>12. From what I have experienced it doesnt seem to matter too much what kind of bean you roast when they become that fried, they all seem to taste quite similar. :D My last roast was more successful, Brazilian Santos to around CS 8.5ish. I could actually start tasting a whole bunch of new and different flavours coming through.

    Keeping a much better eye on the color of the beans, not even so much timing after first crack.

    Nah... I prefer advertising them as "full bodied, smoke roasted" * *8-)

    I can now laugh at my first post, as I no longer bake my Zen roasts, and have Zen roasted many successful batches since.

    I can now fess up to my first over-roast this week (nooooo, it didnt reach CS12!) because Id forgotten that for the last roast I did Id lowered the heatgun tripod by 5mm. Its going to join the first lot which still have not decomposed but are decently buried by loads of grass compost.
