Re: Why you do it

... eat or drink. Few of us are equipped to deal with things even slightly "higher up'' the food chain. Buying green coffee beans, roasting and blending them, is a relatively easy way to become more involved with what we drink. We certainly cannot easily take the vertical integration much further; ...

Re: Liquid Amber Taste Question

Can't add anything but my own experience. The Liquid Amber blend is in my regular rotation. I usually end my roast (SR500) after 2nd crack has been in full roll for about 30 seconds. I routinely find it has a great mouth-feel with a sharp bittersweet taste and some nice citrus twang to it.

Re: Filipino Coffee -- Kapeng Barako

... great. Or robusta, which I have noticed has not been around for a while either. (I use it for espresso and also as a component in an iced coffee blend that stands up to milk or cream)

As in really really good.

Roasted to 2nd crack.
Roasting in a Nesco, I did the smaller sized batch.

Agree! This is probably my all-time favorite espresso blend. Roasted in an SR500, ending the roast after about one minute of 2nd crack rolling.

Re: It's Moka Kadir all over again

Presumably you have the 2014 edition of this blend, which I haven't tasted yet. But despite some variations from batch to batch, one thing has held constant for me: it needs a whiff of second crack to really let the beast out. Lighter roasts have ...

Re: It's Moka Kadir all over again

Would be interested to hear from more people about this blend. I just got a few pounds in addition to a few others. This takes longer to roast than my other beans. I'm using a Nesco..had to go a 1-3 minutes longer than my usual roasting times. This blend ...

Taming the Ben10 monster popper (new to roasting)

... from a specialty coffee place to compare colours and consistency of roast to, so i'm not judging the below results blind. The store roast is a blend and there's a bit of variability in roast levels, but not much, but I don't know more beyond that. Full burn cycle - attempt #1: ambient temp ...

Re: Evenness of roast with an espresso blend?

some of this is equipment based, but it is possible to get a more even roast color level in a green blend. The best approach is with a slightly longer drying stage in order to normalize more of the beans so they charge into the the 1st Crack more in unison. Pushing into the ...

Evenness of roast with an espresso blend?

I'm curious what other roasters see when they roast espresso blends. Although I can get a "generally" "the same" level of roast for most of the beans in a blend (say, 3 or 4 different origins together), the fact is there are differences ...
