Roasted this Ethiopian Limu 5 ways trying to understand how the ROR curve matches up with the tasting. I tasted roasts 3,4,5 about 3 hours after to see how things stood, notes below.
Large Crash and too quick a roast so going to try the ‘soak’ moving forward.
Tried soak and gas dip - but curve still says ‘too hot’
Prevented major crash. but still too hot, rode p4 for too long. also, now have been told ‘first crack’ is not when you hear the first crack, but when you hear ‘successive first crack’ i guess 3 in a row with no pause is the rec from Mill City.
First time tasting coffee ~3hours after roast. This was the ‘best’ of the 3. sour into citrus to start but more nutty savory finish
This curve looked the best too me though it still crashes after 1C. maybe the ‘gas’ dip came too soon - definitely marking 1C too early so excited to try this again
Assumed it would taste the best but very hollow. started similar sour to roast 3 but nothing after that, i guess that’s maybe clean, will see in 24 hours what it tastes like. 3 hour coffee isn’t really the great!
forgot to lower power for the soak until 30 seconds later so sort of threw the timing off for the planed later gas dip.
similar to Roast 3, not really possible for my untrained palette to differentiate.
