1 lb roasted lasts a week. I can taste the flavor increase to peak, then drop after. Still very good, but interesting to follow the wave of flavor rise and fall.

I seem to have lost any roasting touch I thought I had. Very frustrated to be wasting time and money. I’m hoping someone can provide some insight on roasting at high altitude. I’m at 4400ft. Thank

Need advice on Kenya AA roasting
Bruce Ross
I have a Behmor 1600+ unit and a FreshRoast hot air roaster. I began home roasting when Starbucks discontinued my beloved Kenya coffee beans. I loved the earthy-sweetness of their Kenya. My problem is that after roasting 10# of Kenya beans (1/4 to 1 # batches) I still cannot get either taste from various auto and manual profiles. Anybody have a good roasting technique to share? PS - I carefully track elapsed time, wall temperature (wirh "B" sensor), and bean temp (using a calibrated laser IR thermometer).
I am nearly 70 years old and bought 1# of Kenya per week (for about 3 decades) until the fools at Starbucks stopped selling it.

Bruce - I actually have no Behmor experience so I'm no help but wanted to say welcome to the forum and the line quoted above made me truly laugh!

I am 61 and am in a similar situation - idiots at Starbucks quit selling several of my faves ( kenya included ) so I started roasting my own - and I wish I had started years ago...
