Topic: Coffee ROASTING List?+pleased with Diamante? (2 msgs / 38 lines)
1) From: hlhurd
John ,
I've roasted the Diamante twice, once in Rosto 9.5 min, once in HWG set on
7.  I was trying for & achieved City roast both times, first crack but not
beyond.  Rested 24 hrs.  Flavor noted as OK but I see from my roasting log
that I haven't roasted it again since Aug. 2, which means I didn't really
like it.  I will roast some more Diamante to full city & let you know if its
better.  What degree of roast have you already tried?  I usually like the
Costa Ricans. I've roasted Meil several times since then.  My current
favorites are the Nicaraguan Segovia and Kenya Karumandi.

"So lets talk beans here. I got some Costa Rican Auction Lot 02 -
Diamante Tarrazu in the place of the Meil that I had ordered (and they
ran out before filling my order) and I've gone through 4 roasts and
still can't find the sweet spot. It is grassy after 24 hours, and
flatter than my budget after 3 days. Now I'll add that CRLM is among my
favorite beans - but Diamante is Latin for "nightmare."  Anyone pleased
with their Diamante?"

Holly,
  
 On the HotTop I;ve tried 4,5, and 6 settings.  I've tried stopping the
roast at the very first snaps of 2nd crack to a rolling second crack.&
none of them have produced a pleasant cup.
