Three way

... where I grew up, a three-way is spaghetti topped with Cincinnati-style chili and grated American cheese. Meager fare. My three-way coffee blend is more intriguing. Consider: an east-African roasted light, an Indonesian roasted to City (light to me means cooling just before the end of first ...

Re: I have met the beans

... that you started roasting again! I hope that continues to be the case. I'm glad you enjoyed my offerings, and sorry you never got that espresso blend quite where you wanted it. Thanks for naming it after me -- what an honor! Martin, that was something -- managing to disappear a contribution ...

Re: Evaluating Roasts vs. Cupping

... mug (made by a friend) that I fill half way with cold water. Into the microwave for a minute. Meanwhile, fine-grind 14g of light/dark roast blend (Gesha or Yirg for the light, Sumatra or Java or Guat or Rwanda for the dark), and pull a double shot on the Silvia. Pour the double into the ...

Re: Evaluating Roasts vs. Cupping

... quieter perhaps, but not as an empty refrain or dull fade. Tomorrow short about 15 grams, may work up another sort of variation, this on an old blending theme, gesha plus java, kind of like a mocha java at several removes. Getting back to evaluation, what's obvious is there's no substitute for ...

Re: Evaluating Roasts vs. Cupping

... of a coffee are before I buy it. Second, I rarely drink single origin coffees. I have found that the contrasts and harmonies that emerge from blending make two beans complement each other to a degree that neither can achieve on its own. I am a long-time SM UHR now (10+ years), would never ...

A note on the light/dark blends

... New Things and Wrong Way Down a One-Way Street threads. I should have mentioned this in both but didn't. My apologies. I have found both the Gesha blend and the light African/dark other blends to be very drinkable in the first 24 hours after the roast, but they really don't peak until at least ...

Re: Roasting Different Types of Green Beans Together

To answer this question from way back, I will offer that the coffees that were blended post roast were roasted to the same profile, but rather they were roasted to what would be considered the "ideal" roast for that particular coffee. This is the main ...

Wrong way on a one-way street

... 100g - light roast, I mean, going to COOL before first-crack finishes on my SR700. Then I full-city roast some Sumatra Toba Tabak Peaberry and I BLEND the Gesha and the Sumatra. I mean, like, couldn't you GO STRAIGHT TO JAIL, DO NOT PASS GO, DO NOT COLLECT $200 for blending Gesha? So I compound ...

Trying new things

Haven't been here for a couple of months, but have been trying some new things that appear to have legs. In the past, I've always blended different beans together prior to roasting, mostly out of sheer laziness. Thought it was time to try something different, so here's what I've stumbled ...

Re: 2015 Yemens

... special, in the Ismaili fashion with moderate fruit notes, which makes me prefer it straight, where the Sharasi, eg., was IMO so well suited to blending (not that it wasn't nice neat as well). I'm calling my batch a C+, and probably will take it a little darker next time, as I was worried about ...
