Roast profiles

The prototype come pre-loaded with a default profile called "K-logic classic." This profile makes a fantastic job of most coffee varieties at a medium roast. We have recommended roast levels for the following beans available from Green Bean House:

  • Colombia Popayan Supremo 3.6
  • Congo Sopacdi 2.9
  • Indonesia Aceh Black Panther 3.4
  • India Monsoon Malabar 3.3
  • Brazil Emeraldo 3.4

We have one other roast profile available, suitable for slightly lighter espresso roasts than the classic: the Ninja profile. Make a folder called /kaffelogic/roast-profiles on a USB memory stick. Download the roast profile file and save it in that folder. Then put the USB memory stick into the roaster and press the 'profile' button. This will let you load the new profile into the machine. Adjust the level, and you are ready to roast. The coffes from Ripe in the following list are especially recommended. Some recommended levels for this profile:

  • Ethiopia Sidamo Nensebo Werka 2.7 (avail Ripe)
  • San Jose Poaquil, Guatemala 2.8 (avail Ripe)
  • Congo Sopacdi 2.8 (avail Green Bean House)
  • Kochere, Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia 2.7 (provided by Vanguard Coffee Roasters, Dunedin)

Development of additional specialised profiles is under way.

This interactive coffee taster's flavour wheel is a useful resource for those of you who are developing profiles.
