I'm currently roasting for esspreso.  I recently got a Cona Vac Pot but there's really no wow factor so far so my question is.  Is there a specific profile or roast level that might give me more suitable results ?

It may be a question of roast level rather than profile. Since vac pot coffee is more about clarity and definition of flavor layers, if your current roasts are on the darker side, you're leaving less of the bean flavor (and more of the roast flavor) to discern in a vac pot. I'd say try roasting City or City+ for vac, if you've been roasting darker.

Thanks for your reply GVDub... So based on this information, what coffee/region suits itself better for the kind of roast level necessary for a good cup of drip coffee?

If you’re looking for good flavor for drip I would recommend a bean with some fruity tones to offer in a light roast.  I have only roasted JBM so far with my Behmor but a light roast IMO is always ideal for drip. GVDub is right, darker roasts just burns the taste away.   Try Harrar.  If you’re willing to buy JBM a C-C+ gives you amazing milk chocolate tones both with drip as well as espresso.  Add cinnamon and rum and you got a true JBM beverage! :D

Awesome ... I do have some green JBM at home.  How many days of rest do you think I need for a C, C+. roast for it to be good in my Cona?

With Behmor roasts, I find a little more rest is better. I would say 3 days minimum.

Give it 3 days. 2 Days you will still taste the outgasing.  C+ I find is perfect.  FC will taste more like dark chocolate.   :)

I have been roasting in the Behmor 1600 for about a year. For some reason my roasts were coming out tasting burnt or flat. Actually non drinkable. I have done a lot of reading and I notice that much of the advice online, including this site, is written by espresso drinkers--and geared toward roasting the bean for espresso. Well, I use a Chemex each morning and I find that P1 and P2 were not getting me where I could get a drinkable cup, so I experimented a little. I tried 10oz, set at the 1 lb setting, and hit P5. This roast was much more mellow, drip-appropriate, and actually delicious. It needs at least 2-3 days to degass properly but even 24 hours later was great. I think P1 and even P2, at least on my machine are too powerful, hot, and just like a blow torch on the beans. Incidentally, I roast Colombian and sometimes Mexican Chiapas. For drip lovers we have to be aware that most of the comments on these coffee forums regarding home roasting are from espresso folks and their advice on roasting may not be appropriate for drip brews.

Personally I like trying a few different levels on a roast to see what I think is best for the bean. I tend to buy my beans in larger quantities, most of them at least 5 lbs at a time, so I get a chance to experiment. I do normally start light (I aim for a City - City+ on the first roast) and then push it a little darker next time. On the 3rd roast or so I get the idea on where the bean works the best and roast to that. Some regions I enjoy darker than others. I only roast for drip, thought that doesn't mean that suggestions for roasting from people who drink exclusively espresso are wrong, they're also trying to get a great cup. If these boards have taught me anything, it's that coffee is a highly personal experience. Everyones tastes and what they taste are unique. The whole point isn't brewing an ideal cup of coffee, it's brewing what you think is the best cup of coffee. Take suggestions, experiment and see where you end up.
