Can someone help me for using forced propane burner as my heating element. I rather want to use lpg than electric. Do you think it would work

Ground Coffee Aroma
allenb
Technically I'm supposed to call it fragrance but I don't like the word for describing the smell of ground coffee.

For quite some time after starting out roasting I would have a so-so roast and the ground aroma just out of the roaster would be less than pleasant but after a couple of days rest it would improve. The taste of the coffee would never be great no matter how long of a rest.

After a while I finally came to the realization that if my just-roasted ground coffee aroma wasn't great then the brewed coffee was never going to be great even after a proper rest period. I sometimes would be in denial after smelling a less than stellar aroma and then wondered why the so-so cup a couple of days later.

I now do a 1/2 oz test grind just out of the roaster to get a feel for how the roast came out and it's interesting how there are small differences between seemingly identical roasts of the same coffee.

I'm interested to find out from others how your ground coffee aroma rates just out of the roaster? Excellent, good, just as good as it is after resting for a couple of days?

I think I'll start checking. How does it coincide with the munch test? -Scott

For whatever reason with my taste buds, I've munched more than a few beans that I was sure would produce a killer cup but didn't pan out.

On the other hand, I've yet to find an excellent, just out of the roaster grind aroma produce anything but a great cup.

The fragrance out of the grinder is almost always most excellent for me. I love it!

Respect the bean.
