I just started roasting a week ago with a FreshRoast and Sweet Maria's
Espresso Bean Sampler. After getting over under-roasting, and then
over-roasting, I seem to be getting good results with a problem. I have
gone from less crema than I would like, with roasted beans, to too much
crema with home-roasted beans. I'm not exactly sure how to control crema
(other than less robusta), but this seems extreme. Also, it is a bit less
bitter than I would like. I have tried varying grind and tamp, but the
only result is weak espresso.
I can't really try it any way but espresso, we have several espresso
machines but no drip or other coffee makers.
