Topic: Roast time ying-yang (7 msgs / 179 lines)
1) From: Dan Kellgren
Using a stove-top hand crank popper, is it generally more desirable to use
higher temperature and shorter time or shorter time and higher temperature,
*for a lighter roast*.
Typically I roast in the 250-350 range (with a stepped profile) for 11-14
minutes depending, and I mostly roast to Full City+, just before 2nd crack.
I did a City+ roast tonight of Tom's Colombia Organic Narino - San Lorenzo
tonight, and was wondering as I was roasting if I should adjust my profile
any (temperature to time).
Thanks to the coffee gods of this list!

I think you said the same thing twice. But usually a slower ramp up to =
first crack is more desirable than a rapid rise.

Unless the ramp to 1st is too slow (flattens the cup) then it's desirable to
be more rapid:-)

Yes that will tend to bake the beans. But using a stovetop roaster the =
problem will probably be too much heat rather than not enough.

I suppose that would depend on what flavors you prefer.

Well... on 12 hours rest (yeah - I know!) WOW.  A nice city+ roast.  Very
clean; no bitterness at all.  This would be a real crowd pleaser.  What a
great cup.  Not getting much sweetness out of it yet though, but maybe the
rest time will help with that.
