https://vimeo.com/412958197
  1. First crack, how to log it and what development time means
  2. How to log Colour change and why you might do this
  3. How to log FC end and why you might do this
  4. How to use DTR to quickly dial in the level for a new shipment of beans with a familiar profile

Profile tutorials and coaching 25-29 May 2020

Our schedule has been disrupted during the week 25-29 May. During this week we have been concentrating on coaching participants with profiles they are creating. We have also had some technical issues with recording sessions, so we have moved this week's topics into next week to ensure they are captured.

  1. What is turning point and why does the Kaffelogic not have it
  2. How the start is controlled
    - preheat power,
    - roast required power,
    - min desired rate of rise
  3. How does environmental temperature affect the start
Week 7 Using zones to control roast defects Monday 8, Wednesday 10, Thursday 11 June 2020

Yes it is. If at any time it seems to be going over your head there is always the following day set aside for Q&A, but the intention is for it to be suitable for everyone.

I maybe asking some ignorant questions here, so bear with me.

Please advise what time would these workshop series be on and what app is being used for the workshop - Zoom? Would the details of the workshop meeting be advised later?

Plus, would this be a Recorded Video Series?
So that those of us that may miss some / all of the series can watch it later.

Thank you for providing this and your patience.

Thanks again for the first workshop! Is it possible to list the URLs for the recorded sessions all in one master list of some sort for easy reference?

Very insightful into understanding the roast profile a bit better, and the relation between probe temp and bean temp. What was good, was understanding how important the drying phase is in setting the foundation for the next phases.
