Re: Back to East Africa

egv - I always feel a twinge of regret when I have to blend a great bean like the Tegu. Instead I usually choose a brewing method that will fit my stash. I am sadly out of the Tegu, but roasted up some of the new Gatomboya today as a consololation. Best of luck in your venture!

Re: Light roasts on a SR500

... a more "espresso-like" drink. Kenya to me is bright and berry-fruity more than full-bodied and rich. I use Kenya in one of my espresso blends - but only 7% of the blend is Kenya. I'm in fact not a big fan of single origin espressos, because the extraction process quickly identifies ...

Re: Gesha in the SR700

... an almost honeyed roast with dry processed Yirga Cheffe and Sumatra peaberry on Tuesday. The gesha does not have the depth and richness of that blend, but the high notes in it are HIGH. If the Yirga/Sumatra blend is the first verses of the national anthem, this is "the land of the free." ...

Re: Screen-bottom popper solution (Presto Poplite)

... at 230g of roasted beans, which fills a quart jar about 3/4 full. For me, (because I try to always have more than one kind of roasted beans to blend together) roasting about twice a week with a 3-cup sifter seems to work pretty well. (I make a pot of coffee with 50g of beans every morning.) ...

Not an SO, but really, really tasty.

Re: Roasting Robusta

... peat. I actually enjoyed it as a SO in a press pot but the caffeine amount was too much. I used the remainder as a 5% addition to espresso blends. Added nice crema and didn't dominate the tastes/flavors/nuances. http://kaapiroyalecoffee.com/tag/sethuraman-estate/

Re: Roasting Robusta

... on that and try again in a couple of days. :) Also made a 26 g to 400 g cup in the Clever. This was not too bad actually. I've got a blend loaded in the Clever we'll try next. 7 g Robusta, 10 g Caturra & 9 g Yirgacheffe. Edit: Didn't add anything positive to the cup. :(

Re: Roasting Robusta

... an hour, then turned all dark. I intend to taste this pure with my espresso machine and then my Clever. I have just started experimenting with blending different beans and roast levels so these very dark roasted Robustas should be fun mixing with my other beans I have on hand right now. (Nicaragua ...
