Subject: I'm gettin' good at this roasting thing..
yrs.) I'm using the the I-Roast1. It's becoming more intuitive. I
follow the guidelines (cracks, temps), but temper them with the
experience gained in doing this over and over (cracks, color). I can
say I get a reasonably consistent cup of coffee. My tastes have
changed somewhat as well. I preferred the funkiest of coffees like
Monsoon M, or Ethiopians. I still like generic Honduran as my staple.
Specifically, Honduran cala. Its got body and it's chocolatey. I
still don't get the other Central Americans like Guatamalan ( I can
taste the water as an after taste). I use Sumatra M, Ethipian HH,
Honduran Coarene, Nicaragua, Brasil MC (too bland). OK I'm still
bouncing around a bit. Cheers
