Re: Rwanda Rulindo

... over those cups. The lighter roast was probably more complex, certainly had more obvious fruit notes; now you've got me thinking about a melange blend, if I can ever find the right tuits to arrange that little thing...

Rwanda Rulindo

... City level with 16.5% weight loss, and with no oil at all appearing on the surface of even one bean. First taste was immediately post-roast, in a blend where I used 40% of the Rulindo. It was promising. Today I had my first pot of single-origin Rulindo. Next pound I'll take it through a few second ...

Cocatu too!

Three mornings with this fine bean, a crescendo effect, improving each day. First a little unfair, an impromptu blend with 10 grams more or less of residual Kenya Embu Gakui Peaberry, an unlikely marriage, but nothing could persuade me to discard even a single Gakui bean. No mistaking ...

When Behmors Stop, and an episode of re-roasting

... this afternoon (about 24 hours after the re-roasting). There are some odd aromatic notes that aren't exactly bad, just... odd. Overall it's a blend of a somewhat sweet, mild coffee with an edge like a darker roast. We'll see how this goes, but so far it seems good enough to get by until I ...

Re: An Ecdote of Three Drums

... out for a bit). I wouldn't worry about the "square" small grid - in the light of morning (and a lovely cup of a Konga/IP Yellow Bourbon blend) I suspect I may have made too much of the possibly greater chaff retention of the diamond. In fact the more I think about it, the more I recall ...

Re: micro blend/micro roast/micro brew

By coasting I mean reducing the heat and turning up the fan on the SR500. The more the beans move around in the air, the more quickly they lose heat.

Re: micro blend/micro roast/micro brew

Thanks for your description of your roast. I never get anywhere squinting at the graphs folks post of their roasts or pulls. What do you mean when you say you coast after first crack? I'm also intrigued by the nicer portafilter, as I thought I'd run out of things to buy for my pet Gaggia Classic.

Hello from New Zealand!

... a fit.... Perhaps if / when we move to another place... I like all sorts of coffees from lightly roasted SO's to Dark chocolately, nutty caramel blends. I haven't purchased beans I didn't like yet. Whenever I see a Geisha I haven't tried at one of the local roasters I always get some to try it ...

Re: Will the 1600+ do darker roasts well?

... successful. I'm currently exploring if the bean origin is critical. My notes suggest that Columbia is almost 100%; Ethiopia 90%. I've tried Donkey Blend, Expresso #33, & others, but either the bean isn't right for Starbucksey or I screwed up. One more thing. I disassemble & clean my Behmor ...

... with the FreshRoast. (note, the P3 developed more character after resting a few days) February 5th 2015 I’ve gone through a pound of Ethiopian Blend that came with the espresso sampler now. Again trying the P1 and P3 roasting profiles both roasted through first crack and a few more seconds. ...
