    On my recent trip to Hong Kong at the beginning of December 2017, I met up with the former World Barista Champion, Chan Chak Sum, who truly impressed me with 3 versions of his intricate works of Latte Art I've seen to date; it took around a minute or so to produce, but well worth the wait, with such smooth micro foam to savour gently down; enjoy: ...

    Just arrived back from Chicago, and was thrilled to find a decent café and coffee roaster: Intelligentsia Coffeebar

    I made it a regular stop during my 10 days there, and the Black Cat Organic Espresso served was bright, sweet, and dark, and cut through milk perfectly!

    Depends on the definition of "normally".

    For instance, Scott Rao, in his book "The Coffee Roaster's Companion" on page 40 says:

    Classic drum roasters: 10 to 16 minutes
    Indirectly heated drum roasters and roasters with perforated drums: 9 to 15 minutes
    Fluid-bed roasters: 7 to 11 minutes

    Klaus Fricke in his book Kaffeerösten zu Hause, page 87, compares slow roasters (12-20 minutes up to 30 minutes) to fast roaster methods (3 to 15 minutes).

    Kenneth Davids, in his "Home Coffee Roasting" book:

    "Don't be fooled by the illusion that there is some absolute 'right' time for a good roast. Some small fluid-bed machines do a splendid roast in three or four minutes."
