I think I over-roasted this Maui Mokha. I only heard one or two snaps at first crack and kept pushing it longer, but then it hit second crack all at once and started smoking. Smells a little burnt. I'm going to clean the Behmor and roast another batch.

Roasted Guatemala Xinabajul Santa Barbara on Sunday and had my first cup today and it was really good. Roasted Costa Rica Helsar Miguel Rojas last night and I changed my roaster settings after doing some research on roasting profiles. I really need to look deeper into the whys of coffee roasting, any recommendations for books on coffee roasting?

I bet your place smells heavenly. I thought about roasting my own, but my wife would kill me if I started another hobby. I do love good coffee.

No. Unfortunately not. I did at one time, but the grinder broke and I never did replace it.

I always struggle with what to buy. I don't really have a favorite yet as there are so many beans to try.

Some suggestions..?

Probably the best way to immerse yourself, is to simply purchase a sampler from one of the following:

Bodhi Leaf Trading (down this away in SoCal). You can use our coupon code of "cigar" for an extra 10% off your purchase:

http://www.bodhileafcoffee.com/colle...eves-favorites

You get 5lbs (5 one pound bags) from different regions at their choosing for you.


There is also Sweet Maria's up in Northern California for a sampler purchase:

https://www.sweetmarias.com/product/...coffee-sampler

You can choose a 4lb or 8lb sampler pack. They chose the green coffee beans and regions for you.
