Topic: what exactly are "quakers"? (9 msgs / 143 lines)
1) From: Joe
Hello,
I'm fairly new to the coffee roasting myself and so far am really 
enjoying learning all about the bean and the process of roasting. I'm 
curious though about one thing I see mentioned on the SM site 
frequently. What exactly are quakers (and the other ones supposed to 
remove) and how does one identify them? I looked at the glossary on the 
SM site and it wasn't much help to me. I can spot ones that have a 
little bit of the bean missing, which I'm guessing might be bites and 
can also spot a few that aren't quite as roasted as others. Since I'm 
using a poppery and teaching myself how to make an even roast, I'm 
encountering quite a few that aren't as roasted so I've been hesitant on 
discarding them. Any pointers on how to identify which should be removed 
would be greatly appreciated.
Have A Great Day,
Joe

And I had just posted a crude pictorial of quakers (and maybe some that
aren't technically quakers: the recurring problem, are these defects or
just the light end of the bell curve?) from a recent roast batch of

A friend gave me some green beans he had swept up from a local auction
table. After roasting to ~ FC, they looked very much like  . both sides.  So far and forever, I won't know how they
taste. -ro

The culls are only in the last two photos.  I guess I could have been
clearer about that!
