OK, using drip the Behmor got the job done. Since we got our new espresso setup (Rocket Giotto and Mazzer Mini Electronic) I have become less and less satisfied with my roasts. We rest the coffees a minimum of 5 days, we have the machine grinder set up right, Etc. The beans have been taken care of but the are a little old 12-15 months. Today I received a new, smaller order of beans. I have about 5 pounds or dreg beans remaining. Some of which I want to use to refine my roasting. I suspect I need a better roasting location. I suspect that the plug is under powered. I have already talked to my electrician about this one. I had considered ordering a commercial roaster but that is just cost prohibitive at this point.
My roasting needs help. How do I learn to improve my roasting? Are there any good mods I need to investigate? Is there a way to manually control the heat, rotation speed and fans?
