... fresh coffee...thanks to SM's I've got that mastered now ;) Roasting skills: total newb and running a popper, 9 roasts so far with 6 varieties / blends Taste preference: Round, full body flavor, more chocolate than fruit.

Re: Thoughts on light roast espresso

... has come calling again. The Gatuyaini was a great find. I tried a pound based on your review, promptly ordered five more. Since I do almost all blends, it will last. I had stopped using Kenyas a few years back when the fruit went sharp and thin, but now I have this almost syrupy, wine-like Kenya ...

... were The Rules. Yeah, it got boringBoring, but we were at the high altar. I'm here to argue for light roast espresso. Right now I'm drinking a blend of one-third dry process Ethiopian, one third Kenya (thx El gran viejo), both roasted lightlightlight, one sixth Guat and one-sixth Sulawesi, ...

Re: Special case blending...

FWIW, remember that espresso already has less caffeine than regular drip coffee. More intensity of flavor does not equal more caffeine. Caffeine is a water-soluble element in coffee, so the more water and the longer the brewing time, the more caffeine in the cup. Espresso is the opposite of both slo...

Happy New Year from South Cacalacky

... just starting to get serious about roasting to get the most out of what the various beans have to offer. All these years I have gone from SM pre blends to blending my own and back again and then back again again ! For the last few years I have been blending South American/African/Indonesian beans ...

Re: Moka java blends

Re: Moka java blends

... to most wet-hulled Indos, many Brazilian lots, etc. Looking back, I see I haven't really expanded all that much on the Mokha-Java notes in the old Blending Basics article. Which reminds me - there's a wonderfully intense Harar on the list right now, and I finally roasted some a few days ago. Early ...

Re: Moka java blends

Hey Joe Thanks for the question. Mokha Java blends are traditionally made up of coffees from Yemen (Mokha) and coffees from Java. Take a look to see what we have from Yemen right now and mix that with your Java country. The Hawaiian could be good ...

Moka java blends

I picked up several of the Mokha varieties and a few pounds of the Java. I was thinking of making a Moka Java blend. Anyone have any thoughts or experience with this? I was thinking of using the Maui Mokha since I've had success in the past pulling good chocolate flavors out of ...

Re: Yemen Mokha Sharasi roasted in Behmor 1600 Plus

... he said he had tried and preferred to use a kickstart even though he's always roasting a full pound on P1 (and gets enough time without tricks). Blending can be great fun, and it helps avoid wasting the last not quite a brew batch that most roast batches seem to have, no matter what size they ...
