Topic: Roasted Coffee Beans that are Accurately Roasted and (39 lines)
1) From: Jamie Dolan
HI;
When looking at coffee I have roasted, I never feel like I am able to
accurately judge where the roast is at, and I would like to be able
to.  I look at the photos on the SM site.  But based on computer
photos it is really hard for me to tell the difference between City,
Full City, and City Plus.  I just feel like I am always guessing
exactly where I am at.  From the point where I start getting into
first crack to up around second crack, well that whole area just gets
confusing as to what roast it is.
Maybe I am going about this wrong, and I need to try and measure my
temperature more accurately and be able to know where my roast is at
based upon the temperature in the RK?
My thought of the moment was; Does SM or if not someone else, sell
some roasted coffee that is roasted to different levels that are
accurately labeled?  What I am asking is if you know of how I could
buy A bag of something roasted to city, then one roasted to City Plus,
etc.  Then keep some beans from each batch as a reference point.
This sounds like it would be useful to me, but maybe I am thinking
about judging where my roast is at the wrong way?  If this is a good
way to do it, where / who would be a good source to get some roasted
coffee from that  I can feel is accurately labeled as to roast, is
this something SM does?
Thanks for your patience.  I was talking to my brother on the phone
last night about coffee I had roasted, and realized once again that I
was not able to accurately describe what roast level the Columbian was
at that I was telling him about.
