1) From: Jerry Dwek
Dear All.
 
I am not only new to this list but new to home roasting.  My friend lent me a cafe roasto which I used for a few days and found it very enjoyable.  My own I-roast-2 comes tomorrow and I already have some liquid amber as well as the italian expresso blends iin green beans to have fun with.  I also purchased the sampler so i guess I will be having alot of different kinds of coffee!
Can anyone direct me to a thread with some of yourown recipes or roasting curves for the blends I mentioned?..It woulod be very helpful to have a starting point.  I assume the pres curves the hearthware comes with will also be a good start>
Thanks
Jerry

Welcome.
To start with, read Tom's tips sheet for the Iroast. If you can, weigh your
greens so that the roasting mass stays constant. Then start with the preset
programs. I actually found I had to keep track of the temperatures at 30
second intervals and compared what iroast temp to that from a probe threade=
d
into the roast chamber. Once you get an idea of how your roaster works you
can adjust the profiles to suit your needs. I'm currently using a profile
that goes 5, 5, and 2 I'll hit the very beginning of second by
the end of stage 2. So for FC I tend to stop near the end of stage 2 and fo=
r
vienna I take it a little bit further.
 Have fun
