    I've never done it.
    How far did you take them in the roast initially?
    Does not sound too far if they still smell green.
    Try it. Let us know how you make out.

    I kept getting discrated distracted while roasting them so I thought I heard second crack but I'm not sure. I'm still new to this...this is only my third roast and my first one outside.

    I aksed my finacee to smell them and she said she doens't think they smell green....maybe I'll grind some up...but I was using these to send in a bomb so I'd feel bad using them haha

    My first roast was under-roasted. It is pretty obvious even upon grinding, green beans just don't grind the same. And they DEFINITELY don't taste the same. Sort of like if you tore some bark off of a tree and chopped it up and brewed it.

    Re-roasting doesn't work in my experience. On the other hand, if you went past 1st crack & stopped short of 2nd, the beans are probably fine for brewing and you might even be surprised. It's common for people new to roasting to take a roast into 2nd crack, but many people who have been roasting for a while never take the roast that far.

    I'd say give the beans a try.

    If you want just shy of 2nd crack, then grind and brew. See whether it's good or garbage. Usually when guys first start out they'll under-roast and then over-roast. All part of the learing curve. When you nail it, you'll know.

    Sorry I didnt see this earlier Kevin. I've done it and it works fine. Maybe not exactly the same taste as if you would have got it right in the first place, but pretty close. The few times I have done it were wthing 3-4 days of the original roast

    You can. We don't. Nor do we recommend.

    I have done it myself but have always re-roasted immediately. I now truly know what baked coffee tastes like, it is still better than most coffee you buy.

    I reroasted a pound of coffee once; the power cut off and, by the time things fired back up, the beans in process had cooled down.

    Conclusion: twice-baked potatoes have more merit than twice-roasted coffee beans. They ended up tasting flat.
