Topic: different beans and their ideal roast degrees (4 msgs / 88 lines)
1) From: Kevin DuPre
Hello,
Being somewhat new to this, is there a resource out
there that discusses the various varietals and their
corresponding "best" roast degree?
I'm sure that as not all beans are created equal, not
all beans are at their best at a full city roast.  I
would like to know what the typical "starting point"
roasts are considered ideal, but none of the
literature I've seen so far talks about this.
I roasted some Indian Monsooned Malabar last night in
a Fresh Roast for use unblended (I did the same over a
week ago for use in an espresso blend).  Once second
crack started it took over a minute in that condition
to reach a full city - but my question is, is full
city right for that bean, or is its optimum flavor at
something less?  And if that is the case where might I
find a resource that will show this for other beans as
well.
Thanks in advance,
Kevin

 I doubt that is any better resource for that
information than Tom's comments on the SM website,
unless it's the SM list archives with all of our
comments on that very subject. Then start your own log
and send in your discoveries!  Have fun,
Charlie

I started with Tom';s recommendations but soon found I like a less 
bright coffee so I now take tom's recommendations and roast a little 
past it.  The thing to remember is that you are in this to please your 
own, or those you roast for, tastes.  You can take our experiences as 
just a clue as to what might work for you.  The only way to find out 
what you like is to experiment.
