Topic: [OT] Roasting Nuts (10 msgs / 276 lines)
1) From: Yakster
I tried out roasting raw almonds in the Behmor tonight, a splendid success.
Set the Behmor for 1/4# P1 profile and subtracted time until the roast time
was 7:30.  The first crack of the almonds hit at 7:00 and I pulled them
while they were still warm and took them inside for the Wife and I to
enjoy.  I ended up over-indulging, they were so good, no oil or salt needed.
Back out in the garage again roasting Espresso Workshop #8 - Waw, Bukan
Main!, it's in the cooling cycle now, cooling down from a P4 profile taken
to FC.

That's interesting Chris.  I never thought about using nuts.
If you don't mind, post your thoughts on Workshop #8.  I've got my karma
back, and am pulling great shots again.  I even had good success with Treble
Response, which I was having a lot of difficulty before.  But ... I still
can't seem to get #8 right as far as shot taste goes.  It might just be my
flavor sensors, but I would like to see others' feedback on this blend.

Just for the record, I have successfully done the following in my Behmor:
Coffee
Cocoa
Hazelnuts
Almonds
Pop corn (what's good for the goose....)
Pumpkin seeds
Crickets
Meal worms
The only thing to not work too well are cocoa nibs and sunflower 
seeds.  Both are just too small or uneven, even with the small grid 
cylinder and I lose over 1/2.

John,
The Meal worms must really give your coffee that distinct flavour the rest
of us miss in our batches :)
For almonds and other nuts what profiles and times do others suggest other
than what Chris has mentioned he uses?

Here's some links on roasting nuts on Coffee Geek.  The thread on HG/DB
roasting nuts indicate that it's pretty similar to coffee, and I think you
get the same benefits, the raw nuts keep longer and the taste of really
freshly roasted nuts is dramatically better then stale roasted nuts (I guess
that's why they package roasted nuts with nitrogen).  I'll probably work in
regular roasts of almonds in the future.  I think I'll reserve my large grid
drum for nuts as I end up using my small grid drum for just about every
coffee roast.
John, I would imagine that popcorn would be a very short roast.  When I was
roasting popcorn and then coffee over a campfire, the popcorn was a snap,
just taking a couple of minutes, but my arm got pretty sore when getting a
good ten minute roast of coffee over the fire.  What kind of alchemy uses
roasted crickets and meal worms?  (honestly, I have to admit having eaten
chocolate covered crickets, meal worms, and ants in the past so I can
probably guess)

Greg,
I'll try to remember to post my findings.  This is the first time I've
roasted a Workshop blend, so I'm excited to see what I got out of this
bean.  I roasted up half of the one pound that I bought and froze half of
the roasted beans so that I can extend the time to enjoy this.  Most of my
espresso play is at night and on the weekends and I'm guessing I won't get
into this bean until mid-week to give it some rest.

First time I roasted a workshop blend I bought a pound of roasted as well. I
tried to roast my pound to match Sweet Maria's beans. Gave me a standard, so
to speak.
Along those lines, I think it might be useful to have a collection of beans
roasted to different levels. A couple ounces each of grades from cinnamon to
Full City + might be useful to help visually standardize roasting levels
especially for beginners. Having known roast levels in hand is much better
than comparing beans to pictures.

I thought this was addressed to us. I'll admit I'm a roasting nut...
