I would like to hear more about how you roast, and what you like. do you do any blends that really work well?
Sorry I some how missed this.
So I am a completely amateur roaster. I have 2 roaster currently my first roaster the iRoast 2 and my current go to roaster the Behmor 1600. I tend to like lighter roasts so the limitations of the Behmor don’t bother me too much. I love being able to roast a pond at a time. Since that is a weeks worth of coffee in our house. If I get the urge for a dark roast I will pull out the iRoast.
Personally I tend to like the African beans wet processed Ethiopian is my go to right now. However about a year ago I was on a big Java kick.
I tend to roast right up to the second crack and not past it.
I have Bonavita for every day brewing and a Aeropress for the weekends when I have time to make coffee one cup at a time.
I have never tried to make a blend that is a level I have not gotten to yet,
My new toy I have ordered but not gotten yet is a OE Lido Grinder. To date I have used a electric blurr grinder and it is the week link for me.
All of this said some tips on getting started with blends would be appreciated. Roasting is a hobby I have had for over 10 years when I started my wife thought it would be a faze now she has a hard time drinking coffee out. I enjoy learning and trying new things.
Life is short drink good coffee.
