Topic: OT Spam names for coffee blends (9 msgs / 226 lines)
1) From: Tom & Maria - Sweet Maria's Coffee
Maybe a new theme for our Workshop espresso blend names.
New Workshop Espresso Blend: nxu3en u9de95hi
I could see the next one as "My Passport Was Stolen" blend
Then "23 Mil. USD Nigeria Bank Account"
Later, "A friend on Facebook is Looking for You"
Have any of you received spam lately where they simply ask you to 
send your name, address and credit card number with CVV and 
expiration? I have seen a few. You have to admire their "back to 
basics" tact.

I've not see that, but I don't read my SPAM that carefully, I just
look at it long enough to make sure it isn't a legit message.
The sad thing is that there are people that will fall for it and hand
over there information.
I will need to order again within the next month, I'm down to the last
5 pounds out of the 38 pounds we got at Christmas from you.
Is there anything I can do with the Behmor to get darker roasts other
than reducing the batch size?  I asked about this a while back and
reducing batch size seemed to be the main suggestion.  I use B, P2.
Last roast I did was New Classic Espresso, 15 ounces, 75 degree + room
temp, added the maximum time allowed to the behmor timer and still
ended up with maybe a FC.  Even though it is a lot warmer in the
garage now than when I was roasting a few months ago, I have to keep
reducing my batch size if I want a darker roast.  I had assumed that
some of my roast times were a bit long because of the colder temps I
was roasting in, but at 75+ degrees, that obviously isn't the problem.
 We use all our coffee for espresso, so normally want it a little
darker, FC+ range.  We use about a pound every 5 days and I really
have to do 2 smaller batches if I want to get it to the FC+ range,
which gets a bit annoying and time consuming.  When we got the Behmor
from you at Christmas, running the roast to the full default time
(without adding any time) was often FC+, adding much to the timer and
it would have been burnt to a crisp.  I clean the inside with simple
green every few roasts and burn it out every few roasts also.
Any ideas?  I wouldn't think a roaster should be wearing out after
roasting under 40 pounds of coffee.
Thanks;
Jamie

"Is there anything I can do with the Behmor to get darker roasts other

Yes, do a preheat of the roaster with beans in the drum.  Select the 1  
lb setting, P1 and just hit start.
Wait two minutes. If you try to preheat for too long the roaster can't  
be restarted, so make sure and just do a two minute warmup.
Turn the roaster off.
Now restart the roaster on 1 lb, P4, D and hit the plus button to max.  
time.
This should yield a darker roast even with a full pound of coffee.

Since you normally roast into second crack you are creating an  
environment in the roaster that does indeed degrade an important  
sensor that regulates temperature.  This sensor can be replaced with a  
little patience and a few tools.  Contact Behmor for a replacement  
sensor and instructions.
My advice would be to do the preheat of two minutes and use a  
different profile.  P2 is not the best profile for dark roasting.  P4  
is actually better because you can put more time on the clock.
So, alter your routine, try the preheat and replace the sensor if you  
want to get back to the way it used to perform.
One last piece of advice, check your voltage.  Make sure you do not  
have the roaster plugged in to the same circuit as a fridge, washer/ 
dryer, etc.  and of course, don't use power strips or extension cords.

I thought "nxu3en u9de95hi" might be R2D2
(Ben is really into star wars, so I can't help the references)

I'm just trying to imagine what said Workshop coffee might be like. The mind
boggles...
