Re roasting underdeveloped coffee beans
Nomu-Bry
Hello, this is my first time roasting coffee so I got 2 underdeveloped (100 gr each) coffee and I was wondering "Is there any way to safe this batch?" I read some of the post about re-roasting coffee beans but idk much about the details. Should I put the bean in the same degrees as when they out? And should I just be roasting them in the length of time that is left? For example I was planning to roast them for 09:30 in total but they were out at 06:30. Should I just roast them at same degrees they are out (190 degree c for example) and roast them for 3 min? I really appreciate any input. Thanks

I did this once, don't remember much but I roasted using color, stopped before it was too dark. It was better then the under developed beans I had but not anything like it probably should have been.

Then I guess it should be an interesting taste huh..? Now I got interested on how it tasted Grin

The original roast was not drinkable so nothing to loose. I remember it was a little bland but I was able to drink it. It was just ok, I don't recommend this unless you have to do it. I might have tossed the beans if not for the re-roast.

I've done it too when first learning. It was better than throwing the coffee away as it did become drinkable. Seems to be the consensus.
