Topic: Behmor P2 and Sweet Marias's Espresso Blends (3 msgs / 64 lines)
1) From: Gordon
Using the Behmor set for 1 pound and P2-B, I've been roasting 
one-half pound batches of Puro Scuro and Classic Italian Espresso 
Blends. With those settings, it takes between 10-12 minutes to get to 
first crack.
Also, the times from first crack to second with these blends range 
from about 4.5-6.5 minutes. Again, is this range normal for a blend? 
The Behmor's instruction booklet shows a range of 2:20-2:40 minutes 
for a half-pound, but this probably is for a single origin bean, and 
not a blend.
I've checked my line voltage and all seems well, with about 119 volts 
under load.
If any of you have experience using Behmor's P2, 1-pound setting with 
half-pound batches of espresso blends, I'd be grateful to get your 
comments on the above times. Are these in line with what you're 
experiencing?
Thanks for any feedback.
Gordon

I do mostly single origin roasts, usually on P2. I get times about what you
do. I've been curious about my line voltage, but haven't bothered to get a
meter out.

Gordon,
I've been roasting SM French roast blend in my Behmor but I use P1 profile
for 1lb. I roast two 1/2 lb. batches at two different levels. One a tad
longer than the other. I've found that by combining two roast levels I get
the best of both worlds, roast and origin flavors. My neighbors are from
Paris and they say that it's the best cup they have had since they left home
two years ago to work here in the USA.
I thought they were just being polite until they came over to my house, with
cash in hand, asking to buy my roasted coffee.
Hope this helps,
John in Nor Cal
