Re: Homeroasting pros & cons & cons & pros

... is better than anything I've ever bought. And how it opens your eyes when you taste coffees with different flavors! I had a friend who lived in Bolivia. He said that some banannas there taste like strawberry/bananna. I've never had those banannas, but I can have the equivalant in coffee; only ...

Extending initial roast and first crack for City+ on Behmor?

... Stone helpful but not curative. My results have been somewhat fruity, but uniformly very thin. So far, I've used beans from Brazil, Guatemala, Bolivia, and Peru, and the results are the same, so I think the primary culprit is user error. First, in terms of getting a fuller fruity roast, is ...

Re: Ikea Hack Drum Roaster for Grill

... roasted a half pound tonight. First time ever. Frenched it. A little darker than I wanted. I cupped some via my Aeropress, and it was damn smooth. Bolivian. The bad news. Two hours getting the roaster going. The open end didn't work at all. Beans bouncing all over the place. At 60 RPM, the beans ...

Re: Can green beans "dehydrate" before roasting?

I haven't roasted the rest of the Bolivia #1738 yet, but I did have some of the El Salvador Majahual Tablon La Montana from my previous roasting (my notes show that I'm roasting half a pouch of beans -- around 180-200 gms -- every five days). ...

Re: Bolivia Buena Vista Organic #

I roasted another pound of this coffee and now am enjoying my first pot 3.5 days after roasting. This time I roasted longer, to a weight loss of 15.6%. A few earlybirds had gotten to second crack but not many at all. This coffee seems to spend a longer amount of time than most in first crack and tak...

My Beans from a Nesco

Hi all, Well, I took photos of Bolivian Buena Vista and Ecuadorian Zamora beans I had roasted (attached). I'm not even sure what level of roast they are. The photos came out good and true, but on this computer they are way too blue and cool, ...

Re: Bolivia Buena Vista Organic #

Samseven, I've not been a big fan of south American coffees in the past but I tried some of the offers from here and have been pleasantly surprised by a few of the Columbian, the ones I tried are not on the list now but they had more characteristics of good central Americans. It's been hit and miss,...

Re: Bolivia Buena Vista Organic #

... It is a nice coffee, but after a while, drinking just one coffee can lose its appeal. I guess I'm game for something new, and will sample the bolivian and columbian coffees. I purchased bolivian one time a few years ago, and it was a nice coffee, without any "overwhelming" qualities. ...
