Re: Roasting Different Types of Green Beans Together

... the start of first crack, and use it in my espresso blend. I have been pleasantly surprised at how GOOD this tastes: 10% Monsooned Malabar 10% Brazil 40% Sumatra 40% random blend

Re: I have met the beans

... me after about anywhere from 7 to 10 days rest with the "burping" that Martin recommends. Most Centrals that I have had along with some Brazils here at SM.... for me the peak is usually about 3-4 days after roast. However, my personal fav Guat, the Finca San Diego Buena Vista seems to ...

Questions: Brazil Minas Gerais - Jose Roberto Canato

I'm having a hard time getting Brazil Minas Gerais - Jose Roberto Canato ordered within the past couple of months to taste good. Based on the quality source of the beans, the issue is either how I'm roasting, grinding or making espresso. ...

Re: Introduction and questions

Check your voltage with a Kill A Watt. This is what I use with 119.7V. Brazils, Indonesians, naturals. 460* to 1 min after start of first crack, turn down to 455. Pull at 2:15 after first crack and cool externally. Tweak subsequent roasts as needed. Ethiopians ...

Re: "Naturally" Decaf ?

This is a variety being grown out in Brazil called Aramosa. It contains half the caffeine as standard arabica. Daterra is cultivating it. We cupped some of it on Saturday.

Re: Light roasts on a SR500

... at high temp. You have to back into them, if that makes sense. BTW, Ethiopians have always been the heart of an espresso roast for me. I use Brazilians for a "neutral" base, or shift to Guatemalans for a slightly bittersweet finish. Bittersweet in the finish extends the flavor, ...

Re: Light roasts on a SR500

I agree with you there. I've enjoyed Brazils and Ethiopian Sidama beans that I've roasted much more as SO espresso, and I've had acceptable results in the past at a full city level. Unfortunately, all I have left from my last order were the ...

Re: Light roasts on a SR500

... in a Kenya espresso, I'd add some Sumatra or Java. My basic "formula" for a Kenya drink is: washed Ethiopian, 40% Sumatra or Java, 33% Brazil or Guatemala, 20% Kenya, 7% Note that just from those six beans, there are a multitude of blends at hand. I should add that I blend before roasting, ...

Re: Ethiopia Espresso Questions

... and I like all of them. I only use blends for my espresso machine and rarely roast an SO espresso. My blends usually consist of 3 types of beans - Brazil, Ethiopia and Guatemala for example and these are listed in descending proportions. I like Ethiopian coffee so much I use it as the 2nd ingredient ...

First espresso blend with Sulawesi

... edge to it, where I've usually looked to Indonesians for "chocolate syrup" - smooth, earthy body. My typical espresso blends use Brazils or Guats for the base. I use Guats to give a slightly bitter edge to the finish, Brazils when I want smooth body. This blend used a Brazil, ...
