Re: I have mixed the beans, and wow!

... here at the Lazy Coffee Ranch & Cafe', I left off roasting until there was very little left in the jar. So this morning's carafe is a 1:1 blend of some well rested Opung BR supplemented by last night's FSDBV, both FC. This batch of the Opung was one of the backing-off-from-P1 experiments, ...

Re: Kenya is BACK in espresso

... for your postings! I'm an SR500 roaster for both pour-over and espresso; 2-3 double shots per day (no milk drinks). I've had very poor results blending my own espresso, so I've relied on some of my favorites from Sweet Maria's; in particular their Liquid Amber and Monkey Blend. I will, however, ...

Re: Kenya is BACK in espresso

... I'm OK just talking to myself until I start asking and answering questions... Another update, then. First off, this is by far the most interesting blend of beans I've found in my ten years of roasting. Not because it makes the single "best" coffee ever, but because it offers such a range ...

Re: SR500 owners - get in here!

... there I've been able to identify some roasting levels by color. Both Sumatra and Harmonic turned out very good. Tremor is a wonderful espresso blend, very rich and chocolaty and balanced, superb crema. My wife love's the Sumatra in press pot, FC+. Thanks again for all the views and ideas here.

Re: HotTop damaged in shipping - safe to use?

Is this an SO bean or a blend?
I have the B model and so cannot offer specific advice for the P. That said, I would make a point of following the HT USA recommendations for the first few roasts.

Re: Kenya is BACK in espresso

... Brazil for a neutral base, Sumatra or Java for big-body base, Ethiopian for sweetness and grace, and then Kenya for rich fruit. It's not just the blend that creates the final product, of course. The roast is critical. I've been ramping up through two minutes on Fan-high/Temp-low, then slowing ...

Re: Newbie Recommendation

How about Sweet Maria's Altiplano Blend?
Or are you looking for a single origin type?

Re: $25+/pound

... an Ethiopian cultivar grown in Panama? B. I am not the person to ask about Ethiopian bean comparisons. Heck I have only roasted two batches of a blend. As for the fan, I can tell you what I did but not what is best. :D For the following, note that my probes read low (360-370 at 1C). The fan is ...

Re: $25+/pound

I only have a few hundred roasts with my HT, and my first Ethiopians were my latest - the SM blend. It is very good, and at FC to FC+ has the malty/chocolate flavor that I seek for my espressos. I load at 350 on the OEM probe and keep full heat on until about a minute ...
