I too want to make a coffee extraction with beans, so quick question re: shiny coffee beans. I am hoping @therabidweasel can shine some light. I understand about why they have visible oil on the surface (usually darker roasts where the moisture has been reduced and then the oil comes to the surface) but what would be best to choose for a non-bitter coffee vape (bean/roast). Plus we avoid oil-based flavorings in general, so is bad idea? …or could a majority of that oil be removed to avoid that bit being in the extraction?
I love dark coffee …drinking some Green Mountain Double Diamond right now, but I’ve had some bad coffee vapes (way too strong to enjoy for long). I also know higher roasting can reduce acidity which might be important in vape chemistry (Maillard reaction).
I thought this would be perfect for my VaporBase sample. So how many beans per 10 ml? Might do a medium roast and a dark hmm maybe a Kona or Blue Mountain. A nice medium roasted Kona is sounding good right now… but a dark roast sounds smarter extraction-wise (acidity) @Maureeenie? Any advice?
