Re: Critiques and comments on first roast, plz?

... Mike, I can't wait to hear how you like them. They look pretty good to me. Try a cup, and try it again in another day or two, since I keep reading Brazils benefit from a rest. Its hard to tell from the picture due to monitor and camera calibrations etc., but I'm guessing you're somewhere in the ...

Critiques and comments on first roast, plz?

... now in "Using Air Roasters" to solicit your critiques of my result, as well as advice on how to improve. I started with two ounces of Brazil Fazenda do Sertao. I tested with three ounces but there was too little movement of the beans to suit me so I switched it off and cut back. I ...

Re: Hello from Southern California (Riverside)

... already have so many beans on hand because there's more I want to try! Okay, disclaimers having been said here's a couple I've been enjoying. Brazil Santa Ines Yellow Bourbon- I'm calling this pulp natural process "the comfort food of coffee". It's mild but flavorful, and so balanced, ...

Re: absolutely chuffed about home roasting!

... and add copies any old pictures, documents you might have to my files. As far as the coffee density I know the lower grown beans like Brazils are softer and not as dense to begin with. And all beans expand quite a bit when they are roasted to the lighter levels. I don't know what they ...

Re: Please introduce your homebuilt or modified roaster

... today, I had to try it out! I roasted some no-name Guatemala Antigua that I had been using to test the blowing assembly, and then some of the Brazilian Yellow Bourbon I got 5 pounds of last week (and am loving). Initial impressions: Version 1.0 had barely adequate air power. I could really ...

Re: Advice on Blending a Too Intense Roast

... all that fruitiness is mainly wasted there for me and I find I like it best in an iced coffee. As far as blending I like it blended with a mellow Brazilian or Sumatran. Nothing too complex because I think the Adabo Sulula is already so complex. So that was was my first experience with a dry process ...

Re: Special case blending...

... Espresso is the opposite of both slow brew and water volume. That said, I completely agree with Martin on Guats as espresso base. I stopped using Brazils several years back when Tom's Guats began to overshadow the Brazils.

Re: Moka java blends

... wet-processed lots with plenty of fruitiness. For the base I've found a wide range of things work well, from Java to most wet-hulled Indos, many Brazilian lots, etc. Looking back, I see I haven't really expanded all that much on the Mokha-Java notes in the old Blending Basics article. Which reminds ...

Re: Yemen Mokha Sharasi roasted in Behmor 1600 Plus

... I roast it I will try it as you recommend, on P1 with a kickstart. I've been drinking everything neat since I started roasting, except for the Brazil Tres Vizinhos. Those peaberries came out a little on the bland side for my taste, but blended 40/60 with the Guatemala Finca Rosma, it was outstanding. ...

Re: Increased smoke with Behmor 1600

... the cooling cycle. If you don't see the coils glowing inside the cover, repair or replace them as Ira said. FYI, I just roasted 1/2 pound of SM's Brazil Tres Vizinhos Peaberry yesterday, and there was a lot more smoke coming out of the roaster exhaust, before first crack started, than I have seen ...
