Beautiful!

Nice even roast. City + is my guess but light is tricky. The silver skin looks the same color as the beans which is more FC+ but it also depends on the beans... They look good anyway.

Gotta give it to ya! This was a very nice poor. Very even and stripped. There is a tiger that is looking for his tail!!!

Don't know about the puck and why you are showing it to us but it is a nice picture...

Very nice Rosetta with very fine ribs! You can tell how rich and tasty it will be just by looking at it.

Thanks for all the nice words.

I must say, I was pretty happy with this roast. It was a bit of what I would call a "jungle blend" (a bit of everything I have). But at least I wrote it down this time:

4oz Brazilian Santos
4oz Tanzanian Peaberry
4oz Papa New Ginuea
1.5 oz Sumatra Mandehling

Roasted to city+ as you say (18:45, just past 2C on the Behmor).

This shot was 4 days after roast. The taste was great, but it did produce a bit too much crema (but awesome tiger striping pictures). The photo I showed above was at the end of the shot. Check out this photo of the same shot after 10 seconds. BIG crema!

By the way, this is with my Mazzer SJ grinder. I just can't seem to get shots nearly as pretty and centered with my Vario.

Which is it? City+ or "just past 2C" which is FC+?? A nice looking roast either way but it does look closer to FC+ then City+ judging by the centers. That's a nice fat pour for the Vivaldi. Lots of crema? How soon after the roast?

Actually, since I'm using a lot of very different beans and the Behmor has a rather slow cooldown, I believe some made it past 2C, other didn't. So maybe City+ / Full City is the best description.

(For those of you less familiar with roasting, you can make your own guess based on this):

4 days after roast seemed like the perfect rest this time.

Almost all gone now. On to the next batch!

I don't think I'm saving much money with this roasting. Seems everyone wants a "sample bag" when they come over. Sure makes a nice little gift though. I may just do all my Christmas shopping this way! :lol:

I would say a city roast. I recently reduced my roasting times and now I am getting some wonderful flavors that I have never experienced before. Previously I was roasting way to dark. I find that the light roast, just barely into the second crack, produces much more flavor.
