    The penultimate roast before (dare I say it) ********* Christmas!
    First in was 1kg of Monsooned Malabar. I have previously done this as a 900gm lot, but decided to try a kilo. It went OK.
    1st pops @ 10.15sec and rolling @10.56sec
    Dumped @ 13.27secs
    14.7% loss.

    Next in was the last of a natural Brazilian 16/18 from Andre Sanchez. At about £4.50something a kilo, this coffee has been very pleasing.
    1st pops at 11.20secs and rolling @1140sec
    Dumped at 13.40secs.
    A nice even roast, loss 15.6%

    Followed by a washed Ethiopian Yirga cheffe Gr2 from ECX and a private import.
    1st pops 11.50sec and rolling 12.11secs. The heat was turned off once rolling and roast ended at 14.35.
    Loss 15.3%

    Next was another Ethiopian, becoming a favourite, Guji Highland Estate. A small 250ha farm along with some outliers produce the lovely coffee.
    1st pops 10.53secs, rolling 11.24secs
    Ended ar 13.46secs
    Loss 14.1%

    Last was another favourite from Kenya. A high scoring 90, AB sized washed at the Ngugi Ini washing station.
    1st pops 10.10secs and quickly into a vigorous rolling @10.20secs.
    Heat turned off t about 11min and roast dumped at 12.34secs.
    Loss 12.8%

    Including the warm up (28mins) to beans loaded, and cool down and clean up etc, less than 2 hours.

    IMG_6831.jpgEspresso Blend 500g 021218.jpg

    So I've been buying quite a few greens from small batch recently - especially as they're now offering 5kg bags on some of their speciality coffee. They've recently added a pre blended espresso offering - something I would never have previously considered, but have bought a 10kg bag and am pleasantly surprised at how well it has roasted and produces a really nice milk based espresso cup.

    This was the first roast following a long drawn out annual service on the Amazon. I roast on roughly 14 day intervals. I started doing the service the first day following the last roast. If it was there, it caused hassle! But now I have done one, next years should be a walk in the park.

    Beans are looking good. Sorry to hear service was a hassle, but like you say next one will be easier.

    Last of the El Salvador red bourbon. I'm going to miss it. Enjoyed every batch even when I messed it up.

    No idea why I can't upload images. They're only 2-4mb.
