How long do you REST your roast ?

Until it's gone. No seriously, that is the correct answer right? With our rotation in the home its likely 7-21 days. If I think if it would go out beyond that we give the excess to local family. We usually have four of roasts to rotate. Average is 4 days per pound. So just after a roast we likely have...

Hello Peter, Thank you so much for your reply! So now I am finally onto something! Raising the temperature definitely knocked down some of the acidity. I am now playing the the grind. Taste much better....however, right now I am using from "gourmet coffee.net" "Jamaica Blue Mountain Reserve". Which according to the web site says, "With a silky, chocolate undertone...

Regrind technique for light roast espresso - sweeter, less grassy & earthy. Fewer fines?

This is exactly what I am thinking. Obviously this is not nearly as elegant or simple, but it's also a $700 set up vs a 3k+ setup. I'm torn between a Titus / Titus modified Versalab or a MAΧ for my end game grinder, not sure which would be better as I have no personal experience with either.

I was given a roaster... W600

You're 2 cents are welcomed and I agree with what you're saying. I certainly do have an opportunity to learn from him.

Regrind technique for light roast espresso - sweeter, less grassy & earthy. Fewer fines?

Isn't the re-grind technique essentially the way a Versalab grinder works out of the box? The conical burr does the inital very rough grinding and then the flat burr does the final grinding to the size to be combined? edit to add: and then again, that would make sense of the Versalab claim that the dual burr system is actually...

I am really glad and happy that all of you were given information and that you are obviously in contact with Hayden all the time (Peter_SVK certainly is).
