Topic: Behmor profile for Ethiopian Coffees (8 msgs / 165 lines)
1) From: Seth Grandeau
I have IMV, Harar Horse and Sidamo.  What profiles on the Behmor have people
had good luck with for these coffees?  I'll be doing some roasting today and
was looking for some suggestions for a starting point.
Thanks!

Now there's a question I have some experience with!  (But just tons of experience with the IMV).  
After probably 30-40 roasts of IMV I can gladly say that my favorite profile for it is: (For City+) 453g of greens; 1lb setting; P1; let run through 20:30 and then goes into cooling cycle.  I cool with the door open and chaff tray removed.  For a Full City I start with 340g of greens with the same settings.
Really easy settings but it seemed to work the best for me.
Are you planning on using the greens for drip/press/vac or SO shots, because I also have SO 'spro profiles which are different from the profiles I use for Chemex/press.

Bryan,
Thanks for the response.  I planning on using it for drip, AP, and moka
pot.  The moka pot can be a separate batch, as I will be bringing that into
work (for our moka pot club).

I JUST roasted a batch of IMV and I'll share my numbers with you... I
will convert the numbers into durations instead of time left on the
roast.
I roasted 8 oz on P1.  1st snap of first crack and the outliers was
exactly 10 mins into the roast, with full rolling 1st crack starting
at 11 mins into the roast.  The first snaps of second crack started at
12:30 into the roast (1st crack almost went straight into 2nd, it had
just died down) and I immediately stopped it at that point, hit cool
and opened the door.
It's cooling now but at first glance it looks perfect for where I like it :)

I have used p3 without any problem. I have also experimented with p2...not always the best outcome. I roast those coffees light. So I roast the weight...like 8oz at the corresponding setting 1/2 lb. First crack usually starts around two minutes to go. Usually finishes at city perfectly. 
hope it goes well

Below are the details of my last roast of IMV:
227 grams on P2. Time set for 17 minutes. First crack started with  
6min 12sec left (or 10min 48s into roast). First crack ended with  
rought 1m 4s left. I stopped the roast with 42 seconds left. Cracks  
were not relatively mild and I am thinking of adding more time to  
start which most importantly would mean that 2nd stage would start  
later which would mean 1st crack wouldn't last as long and would also  
mean the roast would end sooner.

7) From: Seth Grandeau
So I ended up roasting 454 g of Sidamo on P4.  It took the full 24:30 to
just finish 1st crack (and I think 1st was running into 2nd, if my ear is
tuned right).  Anyway, it looks like a C+/FC roast which is what I was
shooting for.
I also did 232 g of IMV on P1.  14 min to 1st crack, 15:46 to end of 1st,
when I hit cooldown.  A very nice looking C+
And, to keep the wife happy, I did 227 g of Kona - Greenwell on P5.  1st
started at 15:37, ended at 17:19.  I gave it an extra 30 seconds and hit
cool, which should bring me to a FC or C+/FC.
All in all, a very satisfying day of roasting.  Coffee for me, the wife, the
moka pot club, and to gift to friends.  OK, maybe one more roast tomorrow...

I just had a cup of IMV on 6 days rest (I saved a little for myself and
gifted the rest to friends).  All I can say is "Wow!"  Thank you Bryan for
suggesting P1.  The blueberry flavor is fantastic.  I smelled it as soon as
the grinder started and it absolutely smacked me in the face when I took my
first sip.  Now I'm really bummed that Tom & Maria are out of stock. :(
