Topic: Consistent batch to batch? (2 msgs / 62 lines)
1) From: miKe mcKoffee
I've been asked how consistent does the USRC roast. Just did two 8# Brazil
Moreninha Formosa batches running automated control targeting 17:00. (Both
batches for Ohana) Roast one 17:03, roast two 17:05. Man pay all that extra
money and can't even hit the target roast temp/time to the second:-) For the
record you MUST have the profile's every segment heat and fan values fully
developed manually BEFORE attempting to use it automated or it can go very
haywire. But once dialed in dead on the money, or at least pretty dang
close! Not near as sophisticated and simple to use as the type of control
CCR HT uses.
Typed while 7.3# El Sal' PN "doing it's thing". (1# post roast for shelf
rest for Ohana...) I've tweaked some of the Ohana element profiles to
further accentuate the top end which also enabled using the same profile for
"general roast" shelf coffee. Basically it'll work well as an SO with due
diligence controlling your shot parameters and also work well for other
brewing methods. Misty Valley up next for Ohana then Kochere and MM and Aged
Sum'...
Back to work...

2) From: Edward Bourgeois
MiKe  Been wondering what you've learned about customer preferences.
What origins and types of drinks are most popular? Is there a
difference in what is ordered at different times of the day or
different weather conditions? Any other interesting observations?
