    Starbucks Roast vs our coffee forum roasters' Roast. check it out for yourself.

    Today, I wanted to roast two different types of roasts.

    One is Starbucks (charbucks) roast which i emptied the cylinder at 8 min mark, 30 second pass second crack (50% into Second crack. Italian roast).
    Forum Roasters' Roast (Med/Light Roast). at 6:30 min mark, I emptied it. 1.30 pass first crack. (between American & City Roast)

    first photo : starbucks roast. it is a lot darker than how it looks on the photo.
    Second & 3rd Photo & 5th photo : they are our roasters' roast. As you can see from 2nd and 3rd photo, I separated some defective beans to the left. as you can see, there is a lighter color for a big bean, burnt for few small beans..etc. Basically you can tell them immediately which are bad and which are good.

    But 4th photo, I also separated defective beans vs good beans, but since they are all dark, it was bit difficult to separate.

    even though I knew the starbucks roast CAN NOT BE CUPPED, but I tried to cup.
    for the starbucks roast, the flavors were....bitter, cigarette like, dark chocolate, burnt caramel....etc

    These beans are from good roast. forum roasters' roast. Med/light roast that I use for cupping.
    Today, when I roasted, intentionally, I did not sort out the defective beans. I wanted to see how defective beans would get roasted and how the cup would taste with defective beans in it.

    below lighter colored beans are "quakers". Quakers are from green cherries, not ripe red ones. These quakers are much harder and denser than ripped beans, so they would never get roasted properly nor as dark as the other good beans.
    the easiest way to tell which are quakers is that you can break the quaker beans with your fingers (of course after you roast) and when you smell the bean, it SMELLS JUST LIKE ROASTED PEANUTS!
