Huky Roast Share & Learn w/ SM's Majirani Espresso Blend
« on: August 01, 2016, 08:14:54 PM »
Saw this in an email today and thought it would be fun to have a group roast/share/learn/experiment/ etc. to spice up the summer doldrums.

Beans available here:

https://www.sweetmarias.com/product/sweet-marias-majirani-african-blend-5187

SM always sources quality African beans; and no doubt they have created a great blend.

Some of the venues we've used for competition are moving/expanding/busy/etc. so I thought we could do something without the hassle of sending roasts in the middle of the summer.

Folks, this is not about who has the best espresso roast; rather trying to improve our own by learning from our members or trying something new.

No judging and everyone's welcome to join in and have some fun.

For those that want to, can we do exchanges?  8) Peer review has helped me hone in on my roasting style. I still have a lot more to learn as a roaster, but every exchange I've done has had some great feedback. Nice way to get outside of that bubble

Great idea Hank  :)
The description sounds incredible. Exchanges sound great too! I'll probably attempt to tone down the brightness a tiny bit by stretching out the finish a little bit more than what most people like these days. Might be nice to swap with someone who likes a brigthter shot as a good contrast or even to blend.

I'm going to attempt your profile, after running mine. I don't have anything specific except "low and slow for spro". Full City roast is recommended and we should all try one at least for comparison, and I'll throw in a drip roast as well.

I'll be able to run 7 roasts out of my #5, using 324g

Full City- my interpretation of Full City is roughly 3 minutes of development time-- does that sound like it's in the ballpark? Finish temp may be a more universal indicator- around 417-420F/214-215.5C?

My impression or recollection of Full City or Full City+ is just before 2C or the the very first pops of 2C.

I rarely roast to 2C, and there is nothing written in stone; SM has defined some of these roast levels in the past. Artisan roasters seem to have abandoned these terms in favor of descriptors; which makes a lot of sense.

https://legacy.sweetmarias.com/library/content/using-sight-determine-degree-roast

More likely one is able to achieve the FC or FC+ level of development using different individual methods/profiles. "One size does not fit all"

We don't have to follow any specific guidelines, who knows someone might have a profile that tastes fantastic and is unusual.

Speaking for myself, I'm guilty of running the same profiles over and over.   :o

An exchange is a great idea. Please count me in.  My 5# is on its way.

edit: Maybe we could make use of Javabuzz's Roast Profile Database.

If you wanted to post the profiles on the ArtisanCoffeeAlliance website, that would be great. Once there's a few profiles, I should be able to pull some data out of the database for comparison as well.

I'd be interested in joining the Roast and Learn too. I only occassionally attempt roasting for espresso, so could be some good knowledge to gain.

A couple questions:

*Can we make this a 2-3mo event? I always had trouble keeping up with the HB roasts when they were monthly. I also think a more lengthy examination of the coffee could be beneficial.

*Will this be the official topic post? If so, I can link back to it on the ACA website.

Now to decide how many pounds to order (and if there's anything else I want to grab while I'm at it). :)

Sure that all sounds good. I'll make it a sticky and we can keep adding for a couple months or until we get tired of it  :D
I only ordered 2 pounds but I'm sure I'll go back and get some more once I've tasted it. Seems like SM blends tend to be availabe a lot longer than single origins.
