I read somewhere that higher elevations have faster roast time and require somewhat lower temperatures. air is thin and has less Oxygen

Yes, 1st off, you must use only Panama Esmeralda Geisha beans and be sure to only roast on Saturdays. Actually, this isn't completely true. Please post in all about roasters forum. Thx!

I’m at 9,000 feet elevation, is there any special adjustments that need to be made to roast using an SR 540 at this elevation?

Grading green beans
pelpa666
Hi all

Do any of you grade / size your green beans ?

do you have a diy way of doing this other than buying the expensive machines?

I am removing small/broken beans using a drum made from wire mesh, 5x5 square grid, with 1 mm wire, thus 4x4 square openings, which equates to about 12 grade.
20 RPM rotation speed, 300 grams a batch.
Is not a custom build, actually is a Deichmann Roestmeister, used as grader too Grin

I took a roasting class years ago at Boot Coffee and they also teach coffee grading. What they taught was that its a hand process. To grade beans the pull a preset quantity of beans then pour them out on a table. Then they count defects. even the highest grades are allowed a few bad beans. This was only for quality not bean size. The class to really learn this is the C Grader class.
