Hi small child in a big brain body,  I do understand all or most of your =

e underground wisdomness and alchemy you are talking about, I was still thi=
nking before reading your post that the name, brand and kind of machine you=
 use to brew the "magic soup" was also important.  I am used to roast acc=

the juice.   Amn't I right or wrong.   Denis

Objet: [Homeroast] Questions on the use of the Behmor

Before I start, I am searching the archives as we speak for answers.  But
being a small child in a big body I cannot help but ask a few questions
along the way.
I just received a Behmor and did a couple of roasts with it last night on
P1.  I did a taste test on one of them this morning and the promise of what
to come has me salivating for the coming week.  However, I was hoping that
some of you that have advanced usage of this machine might steer me towards
a quicker success with a couple of particular beans.
The two coffees in particular that I am wanting to zero in pretty quickly
are the DP Harar and most especially the Guatamala San Jose Ocana.  I got
the Guat pretty close in a popper a couple of times and was wowed with the
the flavor and depth that was lurking in there.  I am hopeful that I can
tone down the brash nature of the air roasts and focus on the wonderful
flavors that are inside that bean.
What I am wanting to ask is what profiles, adjustments, and rest periods
others have found best with these two.  My voltage is fine under load here
so there is no nead to worry about adjusting times of roasts.  I want to
take the Harar to a well done C+, and the San Jose Ocana to a FC with a bit
of stretch towards FC+.  The one time I really felt I nailed it I found a
wonderful smooth flavor with a hint of chocolate on the inital taste, with a
fruity and smooth aftertaste.  I use that word smooth alot.  Perhaps that is
a part of what I am looking for.  A transition of flavors that does not
owerwhelm quickly, but rather, sneaks up on you.
With the Harar, I want to get that potent aftertaste down to a science if I
can.  My friends have had some that I got close to right with the popper,
and they were all amazed with the sweet candy like finish.  So was I.
So if you don't mind taking a minute to share your thoughts, or have a
direction you can point me, I would certainly appreciate it.  I am drinking
some 12 hour old DP Korate this morning as I mentioned earlier and it has me
very enthusiastic for knowledge with my new tool.
