Topic: Oily beans (was +Roasting Times) (2 msgs / 49 lines)
1) From:
I had an interesting experience yesterday. Usually when I roast anything, I
don't get any significant amount of oil on the surface no matter how long I
roast. Sometimes the oil will appear a couple of days later.
Yesterday, I roasted some Celebes Kalossi (or whatever they call it now) and the
beans were coated with oil by the time it reached the City stage. I'm using an HWP.
This makes me wonder if the degree of oiliness varies with the type of bean.

Well, it seems my 'oily' problems were far simpler than roasting times. As I
mentioned before I rarely let the beans live more than a day. I roasted a
bunch this weekend and now they have oils on them. The real dark roast has
lost the burnt smell, too. Too bad there isn't enough to brew, it smells
great.
So now with oils on the beans, degredation becomes a factor I presume.
Also, I whirly-birded some medium lombo and brewed in a Chemex. WOW, coffee
that tastes like it smells.
