Pam is the winner of two bags of homeroasted organic Brazil beans. She will brew
them both and post her opinions to the list. They are from the same batch of
green beans but roasted differently. Even if there is no noticeable difference
between them, it will be good to have someone else's independent opinion. After
Pam posts her tasting results I will send a message to the list stating which
roast was bag 'A' and which was 'B'. I have plots of the temperature profiles of
both roasts which were done in a HotTop. One was without any intervention and
the other was modified using a variac to significantly reduce the temperature
ramp after the first crack and thus lengthen the time to the second.
The beans will be mailed tomorrow morning by USPS Priority mail.
