Posted Sun Jan 26, 2014, 8:29pm Subject: Question for after roast finding little burnt beans
I built a drum roaster out of a toaster oven and roast outside. I been tweaking this and that to get the my speed up.
So I am to full blown fast second crack at 12:25-12:30 in, last weekend it was 16:30.
So I am hoping that my coffee is better this week, last week was a bit flatter than I hoped but not too bad, I felt I am getting there.
so now I aim to get my roast hitting full city and full city + roasts.
My question is I am roasting a pound I was hitting .78lbs at 16:30 and now with the faster I am hitting .82lbs. Is the extra weight do to the faster roast?
Everything looks great, color and aroma but I am getting 14-20 ish black burnt looking beans per pound. Most are small but a couple are about average size, and a few are broken is that common? I been picking them out, they are black in entirety and figure they would be bitter. Good thing is they stand out.
