I am wanting to try several roast types..example... I would like to do a DARK roast, not too bitter, or a dark French roast...something good for an eye opener in the morning. Also something a little lighter but NOT a light roast, maybe something that a flavor could be added to (BTW, WHEN would flavors be added to beans?) I want to roast things that I personally like, and adjust for markets...I love my coffee "strong enough to stand a spoon in ", and know that isn't what everyone likes! But want strong. Total newbie to this roasting plan...

Hello Anna!

I use the Wiki coffee roasting page.  Shows pictures, roast temps and what the bring out in the cup.  This made roasting very simple to me.  Another good way is to also read up on the green beans you are buying and see if they appeal to your tastebuds.  

Sumatra's are great green's for dark roasts.  Ethiopians are great for light roasts.  Brazil's for medium roasts are a good start too.  Here's some stuff to get you started.  BTW. What roaster are you using?

Good green in Canada is Greenbeanery.ca.  I personally am importing from the U.S for higher grade coffee but they have great offerings!

Hope this helps.
