I have a question about considering optimal roast times based on charge weight and coffee bean. Obviously each bean will be different, but we might say if your total roast time is 5 minutes, that’s too fast and won’t allow for development of flavours, and if its 20 minutes its too long, and your beans are potentially baking. But when planning out a roast, how do you identify what you consider to be the best development, and total roast times?
Apart from doing a number of different tests, when considering creating a profile, what factors are you considering that are good starting points for establishing yellow (I’ve heard 4-5 minutes is good), difference between yellow and FC (I’ve heard shoot for 3 minutes) …???
I’ve been on a Behmor, but the Bullet is a different beast and need some tips! Thanks!
