I know this thread is about roasters, but I'd like to register my confusion as to why more people aren't home roasting. It's not rocket science or that time consuming. I've been roasting in a whirly pop a pound at a time for about a year now, judging my roasts by sight and smell. Of all the beans I've roasted I think there are only 3 I would not buy again. Each roast is an adventure.

That being said I've been getting my green beans from the Green Coffee Company in Alberta. I notice they have my all time favourite back in stock. It will definitely be on my next order.

Folks say making espresso at home is new hobby; I'd that home roasting can be an additional hobby ... and, like espresso, it is possible to dive very deep :oops:.

However, like coffee - and unlike espresso - it isn't necessary to dive very deep into roasting to get tasty results 8).

Maybe once pulling Godshots back to back becomes trivial Ill consider adding the hobby of roasting.

On a bit of a Madawaska run.

Between order and chaos there is espresso.
Semper discens.

Anyone have any experience with Escarpment Coffee sold through IDrinkcoffee.com? I think they're based out of Milton, ON. I was thinking of going with their Tier 3 subscription.

The Yellow, Blue and Red can be good if you like more classic ristretto style shots and you are good with temperature. They really need to be pulled at 192-194F at around 1:1.5

Hiya,

I am having a hard time getting my usual roasters to do light roast, i.e first crack, matte brown colour of beans with no oils as i usually prefer natural coffees that tend to have fruit acid prominent. I usually do cortados so the milk rounds off and you get a very delicious coffee. In any case even the roasters that do their "light" roast for ethiopian ardi have switched to medium. So here i am looking for recommendation for fruit bombs, or sweet and acidic coffees. I usually go for s.o coffees but will take any recommendation and roasters. Last few threads detour shows up so i may give them a go. I have done idc coffee and i found the roast to not be even and the coffees to be more traditional chocolately coffee than the light roasted fruity ones.

Cheers
