Topic: Post Roast Bean Munch ---> was Re: +finally, my first roast (3 msgs / 69 lines)
1) From: Eddie Dove
Almost without exception, I throw a few beans in my mouth for munching after
every roast.  For coffees with which I am familiar, I can tell whether or
not I nailed the roast the way I wanted it and for coffees that are new to
me, I can pretty much tell how the the coffee is going to taste.
Last weekend I found some Panama La Esmeralda Gesha in my stash; I thought I
had already roasted it.  While the beans were still in the cooling basket, I
threw a few into my mouth.  I could tell immediately that the coffee was
going to be very much fruited, but crisp, clean fruit, not candied fruit
like some of the Ethiopians ... if that makes sense.  Indulging in the
coffee this week proved that perception to be correct.
Give it a try ...
Respectfully,
Eddie

I too almost always munch a few. My kids think it is hilarious. I think I am
starting to be able to tell how the roast turned out by doing it. When I
first started roasting it was just an automatic impulse to grab a couple and
throw them in my mouth, and I have just continued it almost without
exception since. I generally don't swallow the "grounds" though.

I find the first few crunches interesting; then it’s like I’m eating wood,
and often spit it out.  What is the “standard method” for bean tasting?
