Searching profiles on R.W

Is there a way to search on roast.world besides what appears to be user search? I’m trying to see if I can search, for example, for other people’s roast profiles where they did sample roasts using 150g. It is unclear to me what is the result I’m getting when I put in 150 in the search box when I’m in “User” portion of R.W as all I see are 7 user profiles pop up with 0 roasts. If this type of search is possible please let me know how.

The search engine is definitely something I think would benefit from some new features.
For example :

  • searching by roast weight (i.e search 500g roasts)
  • searching by charge temp
  • searching by roast total time
  • etc.

This would allow finding and comparing roasts much easier. Consequently, it would make it easier to discover people who roast in a similar way and enhance the community sharing aspect.

To me, this sounds like we should expose a “Find Roasts” option similar to that of find beans. I’ll bring this up at our weekly meeting to get some feedback and see if it’s something that can is possible

@derrxb It would be great to be able to search various attributes of a roast profile, eg; roast profile description (filter, espresso etc) green bean origin, batch size, exit temp etc. I also find the community.roast.world and roast.world separation disjointed and no so intuitive to navigate. I love the ability to look at and share profiles. Perhaps roast profiles should have it’s own forum category? It would also be great to encourage people to add cupping/tasting notes to their roast profiles. Sharing knowledge and everyone’s own experiences will only elevate the community as a whole and get us all roasting better coffee!

You can share profiles from R.W by copy pasting the link into community.roast.world. The community forum is run on a free (if self-hosted) open source platform software called Discourse so it has to run separately from R.W which I believe is built in-house. Discourse needs its own sub-domain.
