  1. Hello all, I've been roasting on the Dalian Amazon for 6 months now, really enjoying it, learning a lot and making some great roasts, but.... DECAFF, please will someone help me out with charge temperatures, ror, roast time and time to drop after fc, I've tried a few different profiles but am still getting sour notes coming through when tasted, indication under development but I cant seem to find the right balance of time and temp, any advice much appreciated. I've been told start with a high charge temp and a low charge temperature and go easy on the roast time (low and slow), I have done this but to no avail. Any amazon users with a profile I could replicate, to experiment with would be great, if at least get my roasting confidence back again. Many thanks M
  2. Hi All, have been reading intently at all the excellent information and help provided on here, now looking to jump in a bit head first and have my eye on the Dalian amazon. I plan to start roasting, take my time with learning and work towards doing some small retail sales, farmers markets etc. Plan is to get a 1-2kg roaster setup in new shed i'm building, seems to be some good reviews on the dalian from both price and useability so think this may be the best option. Can go with new but what are the chances of any second hand units being available, or does anyone recommend an alternative? thanks in advance
  3. For sale Bella Barista Dalian Amazon 1 KG Roaster Model DL-A721-SBB. Used twice only! Spotless and in perfect condition. Looking for £3000.
  4. For info. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bella-Barista-Dalian-Amazon-1kg-Coffee-Bean-Roaster-2017-DL-A721-SBB-c5/232824191460?hash=item36356739e4:g:pZcAAOSwmYtbMlIF
  5. For sale is my Dalian Amazon 1kg Electric Roaster. Started a little business with this about 2 years ago and now have a slightly bigger roaster. It does roast good coffee and is great to roast for yourself or as a start into the world of roasting. We would keep it as it really is a pretty machine, but it would be a waste sitting in our roastery. It has been well looked after, cleaned and maintained. We roasted about 8-16kg on it every week so it does have some natural wear and the odd bump and scratch. Nothing that is too obvious though or that impacts its performance. You are welcome to come and inspect it first. We fitted the modulator to control the electric supply and got a bigger flue for the exhaust. It also has the power reader plug thingy to measure your watts (which will surprise you with how up and down it is!) It comes with the original manuals. £2300 and collection from Sevenoaks, Kent. Happy to show you how it works and how we roasted on it. Could even do some well priced green beans for you if are interested. Happy to send more pics if needed.
  6. Just wondering whether we could have a thread where owners/users of the little Damian Amazon can post experiences of their roasts. You will have noted that the Amazon is a new toy for me, although I have lots of experience of roasting at-home, but based on machines with fewer manual inputs (HotTop for about 8 years followed by a Gene Cafe for the last 3, or is it 4). The Amazon has been a bit of an eye-opener and so far I have completed 4 roasts, the firs three with a Papua New Guinea bean and the fourth with a Brazil (Vale do Sol) bean. After those 4 roasts I sat sown and read the more detailed DaveC manual to try and determine why I was seeing what I was seeing (pretty short roast times and 'odd' temperatire measurements). Subjective tests of the effects of the 2 dampers (I don't have access to an air flow meter) suggest that I get fill fan flow with either one of the 2 dampers open, ie opening the second whilst the first is open has negligible effect on air flow. Closing both results in a vastly reduced flow. To me this means that I have either (a) a fairly leak tight machine where the air flow is dominated by the inlet resistance (high) (b) the ducting is limiting the airflow, ie the ducting resistance is high. I suppose I should emove the ducting to find out which it is, but that will blow chaff everywhere (and yes the tray is clear!). Anyway onto the results of the roasts (temperature/times are quoted as time bean (air) PNG 1; 0 190 (190), 2 147 (167), 4 151 (153) [sD open to 1cm], 6 164 (170), 8 176 (179), 10 186 (191), 11 192 (198) First crack at 9:15, beans dumped at just under 12, a little late, but this rot was bound for the rubbish bin as per the notes supplied with the machine. I then allowed the machine to cool completely before undertaking some back-to-back roasts PNG 2; 0 180 (196), 2 147 (167), 4 151 (153) [sD open to 1cm], 6 163 (167), 8 173 (177) 10 184 (191), 11 187 (195) First crack at 9;50, dumped at 11;50; a little over-roasted (for me) PNG 3; 0 196 (218), 2 159 (178), 4 162 (164) [sD open to 1cm], 6 172 (178), 8 184 (189) [sD open to 2cm], 10 194 (204), 11 198 (210) First crack at 9;40, dumped at 11;10; better looking roast BVdS; 0 183 (210), 2 163 (186), 4 170 (172) [sD open to 1cm], 6 180 (180), 8 192 (197) [sD open to 2cm at 7m], 9 195 (200) First crack at 8;30, dumped at 10;10; better looking roast The earlier crack for the BVdS was no unexpected based on my roasts on the GC, but each bean was cracking around 4m earlier than the GC! I do not see air temperatures getting anywhere close to the heater trip setpoint.
