90% of my roasts, even light City roasts, have an underlying burnt/acrid taste. What gives?!

While I personally do not roast like the this, MANY of my commercial roasting friends have begun experimenting with a an S-Curve i.e. slowing the roast down in the early development stage and creating more thorough pressure in the drum thus developing the interior and exterior of the coffee before first crack. This may allow you to accelerate through first crack to your desirable drop temp and roast degree without the underdeveloped taste you're experiencing.


This is interesting as I just recently played around with a nice Kenya doing exactly as you describe with slowing down the beginning leg of development and allowing a fairly swift run through final phase after first crack. I expected there to be a pronounced acidity and lack of sweetness but got just the opposite, a wine-like rich acidity, full body and no lack of sweetness. Plus, complexity increased quite a bit as there were various notes that I hadn't experienced before trying this.

I'd love to see some printouts of this type of curve! I cant really picture it and it goes against everything I've read so far. For what its worth, I've had some luck lately with using a more hands off approach, letting the beans "coast" through to FC.
