I've been having alot of trouble getting good flavors from my turbo roaster roasts. I have the 1 inch spacer and a GG oven. I roast 10oz at a time, get to first crack around 10 minutes and second around 15 minutes. My coffee just taste bad 8(
I usually set the dial at 400 degrees. The roast appear even.

What roast profiles do you suggest? is 15 minutes to quick of a roast for 10ounces?


Any suggestions appreciated.

It takes awhile to get familiar with a roaster -- if you are getting to 1c at 10 mins, then I would crank it up to the max about 1 min after 1c starts.

BlueMoon,

Thank you for the response.

How much coffee do you roast at a time?
What does your roast profile look like?  (temperature settings etc.)

I get to seconds crack no problem, but the coffee has no flavor.

Any info appreciated.

I actually purchased a used behmor and my coffee taste alot better from the behmor, but I miss using my SCCO!

Thank you

I try to mimic other roast profiles that I have read about.  Here is my general approach:
5 mins drying time at 300F
each min after raise temp about 20F which gets me to first crack at about 9 1/2 mins.  at that point I try to stretch out the roast so drop the temp a bit.  I like my roasts at C, C+ so try to coax 2- 2 1/2 mins before I drop them


Here are the MET temps during two recent roasts:
mins 1-5: 300F
min 6: 329
min 7: 356
min 8: 383
min 9: 401
Roast 1 FC at 9:48
drop at 11:48

Roast 2 FC at 9:49
drop at 13:48 - start of second crack

hope this helps- I love the SC/TO  I do think you have some control over the temp (I have the newer supentown digital convection top which replaced my older analog one)
