Morning Ed, I haven't done any green coffee hoarding yet but am hoping the supplies don't end up like the toilet paper isles!

Direct Fire Roasting??
texh
hey all...
so i saw a online video of direct fire roasting and the end result was pretty even so i thought why not try it..
i have a netting basket in which i added around 60gm of colombian supremo and used stove top as my fire source.. agigtated the beans by shaking the basket continously.. the roast took around 6:30mins, 1Crack at 4:15mins lasted around a min and when first crack ended after 15-20secs i took it off the fire and cooled it..
overall result was kind of even i think it seems more even then wok roast.. anywho i have posted the pics here, please check it out and comment/advice..
btw the pics are 5% lighter in colour to orignal bean colour..

used this as my utensil

I bet it tastes fantastic! Sometimes we focus too much on evenness of roast. Once you get used to roasting a certain coffee, try a melange of three roasts, one very light, one medium, and one dark (by dark, I never mean black, I mean before 2nd crack is completed).

Coffees that will open up and give up the flavors they're capable of at a 6:30 finish are very rare. I remember certain Guats and Costas in the early 90's that would explode with flavor with a short 6 min roast but I haven't seen any like that for quite a while. Aim for 4 to 5 min to yellow, another 4 to 5 to 1C, then finishing a light roast 1 to 1.5 minutes later, or if going towards a Vienna, get there at 2-2.5 later. I'm sure you will notice a dramatic improvement in complexity and low notes and total elimination of the instant coffee nasties.
