14.375 oz of Colombia Viota Excelso FC - FC+. Roasted beans are resting in a glass mixing bowl de-gassing, and will be ready to brew on Tuesday AM

Of interest, started with a total weight of 17.5 oz of green beans. End results was 14.375 oz of roasted beans.

After each roasting session and while the beans were warm, I popped a couple in my mouth here and there to chew on them. They produced a nice sweet honey essence, with a very lite caramel note in the background...

Thanks, it's nice to have a coffee roasting thread to share information with other home roasters. Had to clean the Behmor yesterday and I see there is some other maintenance to be done like cleaning the fans. I'm going to roast a batch of Yemen Mokha and then a batch of Java to create a Mokha Java blend later today. Not sure what the mix ratio is, but I will start at 50/50 and go from there.

I usually go with the 50/50 for my Mokha Java

My last order was from Burman, 5lbs of Brazilian Bob-O-Link and 5lbs of Indonesian Balinese. I see both are currently out of stock, but they have other varieties of each of those.

The half pound of Columbiam Supreme they sent wasn't too bad either.

Burman's is a great source for green coffee. There's so many options; what do you normally drink? What will you be roasting them with?

I don't normally drink one kind. I usually get a sampler or randomly pick some.

Other than looking at my order history from last time, I couldn't tell ya what I had.

I normally order from them or Sweet Maria's.

Check out either of the Papau New Guinea coffees if you like a darker roast and chocolaty cup.
The Mexican Terruño Nayarita is a great medium bodied coffee.
Guatemala Hue Hue is usually a good full bodied coffee, try their Guatemala Huehuetenango Finca Injertal or the La Esperanza.
And you can never go wrong with an Ethiopian Yirgacheffe

Let us know what you order

Depends on if I get off my lazy butt and roast it up. Typically I can go through 12oz of beans in 7-10 days.
