Topic: roasted beans (3 msgs / 66 lines)
1) From: Patrick S. Harper
Sometimes I get beans that turn out real concave almost like a bowl, is that
common?  If my camera had not broke I would take a picture of what I was
talking about.

Can't say that I recall noticing that particular shape, but then I don't
always look that closely.  I've got about 5 varieties roasted in my stash
right now and only the Sumatra Blue Batak has some slight cupping to the
shape (along with a few other odd shapes).  So, I looked at the green beans
of the Blue Batak and there are some that have cupped shapes in the green
state too. Maybe it was a new process type called NWP (nuclear wet process)
that's giving these beans their cupped look?  Just kiddin'...

Patrick,
I know of which you speak.  It is almost as if the bean were "deflated" to
make a bowl.  I never really wondered about it until you mentioned it.  I
guess that's because they grind up well too, but it is an interesting
question.
Do any of the veterans have any insight on this or is it part of the defect
per program?
Eddie
