Today's coffee roast

Today I roasted the Colombia "Platos Fuertes de Huila" MicroLot Mix. The first crack started just after 13 minutes and lasted for quite a while. I was checking the temperature at around 15 minutes, I couldn't get a quick enough read so I decided to pull the beans off. I wanted a City+ roast and was afraid if I left it on much longer it would be to late. City+ comes in around 435 degrees, I need to get a faster read thermometer.

  1. Every time I read your post, I can smell the coffee. Wish I could have a cuppa with you.

  2. Most people don't know it but roasting coffee does not smell good. Especially if you like dark roast, the smoke is nasty.
