Topic: Digirosto coffee roaster (7 msgs / 90 lines)
1) From: bruce
I very recently bought a Brightway Digirosto of Ebay a month ago.  So far I 
love it.  I previously had an Iroast and enjoyed setting up profiles.  My 
main problem with the Iroast was I seldom could get a roast to last over 10 
minutes.  The average roast time with my Digirosto is 25 Minutes.  I've 
checked the manual on the Digirosto and have discovered that it is also 
possible to set roast profiles.  Has anyone tried this?  Does anyone on this 
message board have a Digirosto and can share their experience?

Bruce,
If anyone here has one, I don't recall them mentioning it, but I hope they
will speak up.
If I remember correctly, there was an individual on CG that had one and
really liked it too!

I have not heard of that roaster.  In my experience roasts over 20 minutes
flatten out the taste profile.  How much can you roast at one time?

Don't have one of these, but would recommend shortening roast time as Les
said below 20 minutes total. Ideally shoot for 13-17 minutes. Cheers!

In all sincerity, given ALL OF THE VARIABLES, would 17 minutes be considered
the upper limit? Regardless of type of roast and bean?
Respectfully,
Eddie

The Max Capacity  is around 3lbs.  I generally only need to roast 1lb at 
a  time.  In my experience the I-Roast was too bright. This one my be a 
little on the flat side  The actual roast time is around 22-24 minutes,  
I might be able to shorten it some with the programing. The cooling time 
is about 9 Minutes.  It has a bizarre water quenching system.  I've 
played around with it.  It doesn't seem to alter the flavor any.

Just giving some starting numbers for a creating a profile.... certainly
would (and have) roast at longer duration.
