Topic: Donkey Roast W/ Caffe Rosto? (3 msgs / 49 lines)
1) From: Ken Schillinger
OK, I've finally ordered coffee that looks to require the small mesh drum for a Behmor, which I don't have. I don't really want to splurge for one right now either. One of the coffees I just received (thanks Tom and Maria for your shipping special) is Donkey Blend. The way I see things is that I can either order a new drum now and waste money on separate shipping, wait for the next time I order and get the small grid drum, or I can try to roast the Donkey in my Caffe Rosto. I have never had real good results going for an espresso roast with the Caffe Rosto (I don't have a variac, but do have good line voltage) leaving me a bit dubious.  One of the big questions is; does Monkey Blend has a lot of chaff? If not I may be able to roast it ok.
Thanks in advance, Ken.

Wait, Monkey or Donkey?
I don't remember the Monkey blend having excessively much or little, but I
will probably be corrected.
Decafs like the Donkey blend tend to have very little chaff.  In the iR2 tip
sheet, SM even recommends leaving chaff from the previous roast in the
collector.

Thanks for the info Jeff. I am talking about Donkey blend.
For me, less chaff is a good thing when roasting in a CR. I find that if 
there is a lot of chaff it collects in the internal filter and slows the 
flow (air). If that happens, the beans set on the metal of the roasting 
chamber and get little scorched spots on them.
