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! Dan K
This is a multi-part message in MIME format. I think you said the same thing twice. But usually a slower ramp up to = first crack is more desirable than a rapid rise.
Dan, You are in for a treat with the Colombia Organic Narino - San Lorenzo. Great coffee! Eddie -- Vita non est vivere sed valere vita est Roasting Blog and Profiles for the Gene Cafehttp://southcoastcoffeeroaster.blogspot.com/On 8/2/07, Barry Luterman wrote: <Snip>
This is a multi-part message in MIME format. Unless the ramp to 1st is too slow (flattens the cup) then it's desirable to be more rapid:-) Pacific Northwest Gathering VI http:// www.mcKonaKoffee.com">http://home.comcast.net/~mckona/PNWGVI.htmKona Kurmudgeon miKe mcKoffeehttp:// www.mcKonaKoffee.com URL to Rosto mods, FrankenFormer, some recipes etc: http://www.mckoffee.com/Ultimately the quest for Koffee Nirvana is a solitary path.

This is a multi-part message in MIME format. 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. On 8/3/07, Tom Ulmer wrote: <Snip>
