Topic: new Behmor, Columbia Jardin profile, new to list, (4 msgs / 190 lines)
1) From: Steve Simpson
Does anyone have a Behmor profile to use for the Columbia Antioquia 
Jardin Cerulean Warbler?
I just received my new Behmor.  I've taken it out of the box but so far 
that's it.  I haven't read the manual or
played with it yet.  But I'm also out of roasted Columbia and want to 
roast some up Wednesday night.
So rather than start experimenting maybe someone can tell me a good 
profile to start with for that bean.  Up until now I've been roasting
with a hot air popper which has been roasting fine.  But the popper 
roasts SO fast!  I have no clue what to use as a temp/time profile yet. 
Of course reading the manual will be a start but that won't be until 
tomorrow night.
BTW, to the Behmor software guy - you should look into having a way to 
export and import profiles in some standard format.  Select some rows
and export them to a separate file.  People could then post them, email 
them, etc.  Maybe export using a standard format like a comma delimited 
format (excel
spreadsheet) that people could use outside the app.
BTW, the name Cerulean Warbler cracks me up everytime I read the word 
Cerulean.  It sounds like the name of some alien race.  "Captain, 
there's a Cerulean
warship off our starboard bow!!!"

Steve,
my opinion may differ from others...some of that is taste differences, and some may be individual voltage and machine differences. But I'd recommend first running a cleaning cycle at 1/2 lb P1.
Later when you are ready to roast, measure out a 1/2 lb...put it in the drum and hit 1/2 lb, P1. Let it go...when you are down to about 3 min pay close attention. When first crack goes (not just an outlier)...usually about 2 min to go...let it go 2 min total after that and stop. You may have to add time...or you may have to stop just short of the counter and hit cool. See what the machine was designed to do...it'll give you a city, maybe city plus (because of coasting) roast which is beautiful  for that sweet bean.
Let us know what you do and how it works out.
This has become my favored way for most beans. 2-3 min after start of first crack to give C or C+. Rarely do I go to FC.

The term "Cerulean" has some association with the color blue. My daughter,
Edith, had some acrylics in her art studio (half the downstairs) which she
loaded in a U-Haul and trucked out to Burbank last century. Cerulean Blue
was one of the colors that Pop got her from Meininger's.
I teased Meiningers that it should have been "Cerulean Green," for the price
of it.
The Cerulean Warbler is a little bird approaching extinction. Their habitat
loses out to the "Burn and Conquer" realty development imbeciles. The Saint
Pete's Creakies have money, so the birds will lose out.
Could be a huge problem for coffee land use, too.
"You make *how* much money growing - Humph - coffee on this agricultural
land?"
"We'll build a whole retirement community, with barracks and an infirmary
for the Creakies- You'll be Rich!"
