Roasting day tomorrow. I need to push some of these beans a little further along the roasting scale. I want 2 drops of oil on every fifth bean and a few with a sheen.
I need the patience to wait out first crack and the reflexes to beat crack #2 before it punches the beans' flavor right out the exhaust into the spring New London sky. I know I have it in me. Every roast is more fun than the one before it. Every time I learn something new.
Stop by and say hi if you're in for a cup and can smell a roast in the air. (image via my friend Steph via Cafepress!)
