Topic: Maria's Moka Kadir Blend - Rocks / First (4 msgs / 102 lines)
1) From: Greg Hammond
I have roasted MK a number of times in my Behmor. Gonna do another batch tomorrow probably. No rocks that I have found.
My advice: just do it.  The only way to roast with the Behmor [ or any roaster I know of] is to learn and understand what the machine is doing, compensate for its weaknesses as best as possible [e.g., cooling], and have fun. [And follow the cleaning instructions; they will keep your machine going longer.]
I have some wonderful SO coffees and many blends of my own making that I enjoy out of my Behmor.

Regarding rocks in greens, in one year and 95 lb I have a collection of six small stones with the largest just smaller than an average bean.  That's one per 15 lb!  All were roasted but none ground, I notice them while roasting with a Gene Cafe.  I keep them in a 1 lb SM bag and consider them an eclectic collection of rocks from around the world like no other!  They are all volcanic and vary from tan to dark brown, real chameleons really.
Lucky for me, none have met my grinder yet.

On occasion I've found a small grey/green stone, always similar 
in size to a green bean. Once found a dried pea, and had a corn 
kernel pop during roasting. They really stand out when you see 
the finished roast, nothing much to worry about. Coffee's an 
agricultural product, and I'm more concerned about the other 
food products I ingest!

RoastSuggestion
HI;
I have the Maria's Moka Kadir Blend on it's way.  I was a bit 
nervous
about the mention of rocks in it.  I don't know that I have ever 
found
rocks in my beans, I haven't as far as I remember.
Has anyone found any rocks in these beans?  How often?
I think I am going to order a backup set of burrs for the 
mazzer.
Wrecking the burrs is the worst thing that would happen isn't 
it?  It
would not cause any other damage to the grinder would it?
Between, Maria's Moka Kadir Blend, El Santo and Johnny, and New
Classic Espresso; which would be the best to use as my first 
roast in
my new Behmor?  Any advice on that first roast in the Behmor?
Thanks
Jamie

My dad used to make refried beans using the recipe he got from the old Gordo
comic strip.  I loved the tostadas, but it seemed that I was always the one
to find the rock that was in the bag of pinto beans, with my teeth.  The
rocks were always about the same size as the pinto beans before cooking.
I have heard from other coffee forums of people who have found rocks in
roasted coffee that they buy from smaller roasters, usually with their
grinder, so an inspection of coffee sometime before pouring it into the
hopper of your high-end grinder is probably warranted.
