Topic: Fabulous Friday! Behmor roast & visit from Eddie Dove (21 msgs / 372 lines)
1) From: Scott Miller
Just did my first roast with the Behmor ... 8 oz. of Java Estate (not going
to try a monsooned bean just yet). I used the "C" program and P3 profile.
Also added a minute & 15 seconds time. Hit the power button at the first
sound of a second crack, pulled the basket and manually cooled the beans. A
fantastic looking roast. I did the roast indoors and saw no smoke until I
opened the door of the roaster.
About 30 minutes after I completed the roast, Eddie Dove, wife Camille, and
son Wyatt (the bean muncher) stopped at my shop for a visit. We drank
coffee, chatted, ate, and had a nice time. They are on their way up to VA
for the holiday. It was great to see another list member although we didn't
have enough time to play further with the new roaster.
Pics are forthcoming....
cheers,
Scott

Eddie will have to give you more exact info on that; I know they mentioned
the eastern area, near the coast.
cheers,

You weren't deterred by the manual's statement that doing what you describe could
harm the electronics or by the SM tip sheet statement that the cooling cycle works
well so let it do its thing?

Absolutely not. Facts have never deterred me from forming my own misguided
opinions.
Rules? Yea, yea. Sure, I like 'em. Just don't do that great a job at
following them.
cheers,
Scott

I would not suggest opening the door immediately after the roast cycle
ends and the cooling starts, especially with a bean with lots of
chaff!

Cut the power so the blower doesn't turn your kitchen into a mess.

We made it to the Eastern Shore of Virginia (Exmore) late last night.  This morning, I brewed some of the expertly-roasted precursors to exquisite elixir that we purchased from Scott; the Brazil Cerrado was a big hit this morning!  Nice rustic fruit in silky-bodied chocolate ... oooh!
Stopping by to see Scott at his Ogeechee River Coffee Company was a fantastic way to start this vacation; I feel like we stopped in to visit with family.  Scott was so welcoming and Lisa's brilliant personality obviated the need for interior lighting!  I got a tour of the shop, which is beautiful, a fine double espresso pulled by Scott himself, a great lunch and two thermoses full of a delightful Ethiopia Kafu for the second half of the trip.  If any of you are ever in the Savannah, Georgia or surrounding areas, you must stop by and visit.  Buy some of his roasted coffees as they are excellent!  We bought four bags of Scott's coffees to supplement what we brought with us.  And, in case you missed it, here is the link to the article that was recently written about him and his coffee shop: http://www.statesboroherald.com/news/article/5614/We did get a couple of pictures and I hope to get them posted soon.  Next time we will have to make time to be able to do some roasting too.
Jason, or anyone else in this area, send me an email off-list; it would be great to visit with some other folks while in this neck of the woods.  Tomorrow we will be heading up to Maryland for a bit.
Scott, thank you again and please tell Lisa the same!
Eddie

Eddie,
Glad to hear you made it safely. It was great to see you and your family.
Lisa did not work today, but I did see her as I was running errands. In the
course of 5 minutes, she must have said 3 times how cute Wyatt (bean
muncher) was. Ya'll are welcome anytime, as are any listers who find
themselves in southeast GA.
And, if anyone needs an excuse to visit this part of the world. The Savannah
Music Festival at the end of March is a really fun event for live music
lovers:http://www.savannahmusicfestival.orgMany of the top acts sell out quickly, so I already have tickets to 7
concerts.
cheers,
Scott

Awww... go ahead and roast the monsooned - there is no chance those big
beans will fall thru the drum openings!

Thanks for posting the picture Eddie. I seem to have lapsed in my effort to
put mine up anywhere.
When my website goes live next week, I hope to remedy that.
cheers,

Eddie,
What kind of roaster is that behind you in the photo?

Brian,
Per Scott, it is an Ambex 10K (YM-10 model, I think) roaster.  It is a
beautiful, bright yellow roaster that goes perfectly with the coffee shop.

Ummm.... further back in time, if you wanted coffee, you roasted it!  
Having pre-ground pre-packaged pre-stale coffee would have seemed  
"slightly absurd".

Not Eddie, but I do own the roaster... Ambex YM10K
It's not as flexible as something like a Probat, but not as pricey either.
With practice it does produce excellent roasts. I have data logging with 2
temp probes, so profiling is pretty easy.
cheers,
Scott
