I'm getting ready to do my first roasting, but which beans should I look for that might be a little forgiving for a first-timer?

I would suggest a good Central or South American coffee. Try a Guatemala Antigua, Nicaraguan,Panama Boquette or a Columbia Supremo. I think you should try a few different beans too, not just one or two and decide you don't like it, because you might find a variety that you really like and is easy to roast to your liking too!

Remeber to keep it fun! :D

What taste are you looking for?

Ethiopian Harrar med roasted to just into second crack makes for a great french press and the Harrar I've roasted doesn't need to rest. It's blueberry finish is incredible.

Sulawesi Kolossi is another bean I really like. Med roasted it's nutty and sweet.

Yeman Matari med to dark roasted makes for a strong, chocolately, well rounded cup.
