A nice snowy day here. Good time to roast! The snow was very helpful for cooling beans quickly. I decided to roast each type of bean separately:
Indonesian Gr. 1, Sumatra Tabu Jamu - Full City Roast
Brazil Bob-O-Link - Vienna Roast
Brazil Fazenda Aurea - Espresso
Colombian BCT Premium Huila - Vienna Roast
I am starting to get the hang of it. I wanted to take the Colombian farther into the 2nd crack, but I couldn't see well enough thru the smoke so it got pulled a bit soon. I'm not always sure when 1st or 2nd crack actually begins so it's difficult to just count into it.
Saturday begins with sampling each type of bean as is, then mixing the roasts in different proportions. I will likely be bouncing off the walls with the amount of caffeine I am likely to have!
