Topic: Oil development photos - Just roasted, 48 hours, 5 days (11 msgs / 262 lines)
1) From: Eddie Dove
Stu,
I can't get a really good look at the beans (my monitor with small photos),
but FWIW I have had coffee for 3 weeks (forgot about it) that never
developed that much oil.  I don't what kind of coffee that is you have
roasted, but from what I can see, a lot of the beens appear to be well into
2nd crack.  Again, it may be my monitor, but even the first photo, while not
having any oil drops, seems to have a sheen to them which indicates the
presence of oil.  I did not notice any divots though ...

Divots would come from heating too fast, not necessarily for "too
long", wouldn't they?
Decaf coffee shows oil quicker and with less roast level than regular.
 Was it a decaf roast?

Short answer, no. Longer answer my "darkest" roasts will have a few droplets
of oil after many days rest.

I took several photos of beans roasted in my UBM.
 
After 5 days, the beans are almost entirely covered with oil.
 
As you can see in the first photo, the fresh roast is dry (oil-free).
 
FWIW.
 
Do you see the same?

Yes.  I was just offering an additional observation for Stu's consideration.

Poppers seem to uniquely cause hot spots on beans, and tiny circular disks
can fly out of the popper.  When you inspect the roasted beans, you'll see
p[ock marks where the disks came from.  These are frequently called divots.
Or you could follow me around the golf course, and more often,through the
woods...

Yea, and my divots always went farther than my golf ball; which is why I
sold my clubs.

My father and brother are avid/excellent golfers ... me, not so much!  I
play once or twice a year.  My father asked if I wanted a better set of golf
clubs as a gift and I just l looked at him incredulously and asked, "And
what difference would that make in my hands?"  He agreed.
I think the divot thing got covered ...

Brett,
Thanks for the reply.  The reason I asked is because I roasted ??(for the
life of me I can't remember what bean, I'm drinking it right now and it is
delicious, but ...) and for the first time in my short career I had some
beans that almost looked like they opened up; sorta like little
hemispheres.  Thought that "divot" would be a good description.
I'm using HG/BM and except that it was a little colder in the garage,
everything else about the roast was the same.
