Going, going..... almost gone!!!!

... every Ethiopian arrival that SM's had to offer. That was a major task and one that dipped deep into the wallet. Mostly enjoy the Ethiopian's as a blending component in my espresso.

Re: "Ideal" roast

... a batch, a person is always choosing which things to give up. Some people have taken to roasting the same bean type in different ways, and then blending them together to get around the problem.

Behmor drum speed

... with acidity. The slower drum speed produced a flatter but more developed and sweeter cup. Someone commented that they would have liked to taste a blend of the two since they complemented each other.

I have enjoyed the beans

... has some real issues when same-source lots recur year after year.) Well, I've been typing so long I've finished the morning's short cup - a 2+:1 blend of what remained of the Sharasi with enough Malabar added to bring it up to brew weight.

SweetMarias Altiplano Blend & Behmore 1600

Has anyone had success roasting SweetMarias Altiplano Blend in a Behmore 1600?
I was just wondering what settings to put a blend on: P1 A, P2 B, P3 C, or P4 D?
Thanks.

A Monsoon in Brazil

Re: I have met the beans

... been a bit too assertive, but that's its nature IME. Not my favorite Yemen for drinking straight, but it shines as the Mokha in a Mokha-Java style blend, and... you can see where this is going, can't you?
