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, ...

Re: old coffee instructions/recipes

Add "a piece of butter the size of a nut." Would that be a filbert, Brazil nut, or coconut? :shock:

Re: I have met the beans

... ¾". Next time I'll have to try it "on end", that's 1¼". And I know I have some scrap 2x4 somewhere around... I've had some Brazils I really liked, and some others that were kinda boring... still good, these passed SM's cupping, but they really encouraged blending, y'know? ...

Too quiet...

... there was nothing there to miss. I was putting in a new order, mostly because I was nearly out of decaf. I also ordered five pounds of the latest Brazil, so I'd be able to roast several large batches to share over the holidays, instead of trying to figure out who to give what small quantities ...

And the winner is...

... number of blends. But because each blend is a little different, each of them demands a slightly different roast profile. For example, when I use Brazilian as my base, I'm going for a smooth-bodied cup (I only do espresso), so after getting through first crack, I want to drop temps as quickly ...

New Silvia in town!

... after proper temperature surfing. My shot is better than the over-roasted coffee I'm using. So, tomorrow, back to my favorite Ethiopian/Java/Brazil/Kenya blend. Expecting a sip of paradise. My sense is that doing the OPV adjustment will eliminate a lot of Silvia's renowned finickiness. You ...

Re: How to get a very fruity, sweet espresso

... base, an African for fruit, and an Indonesian for body, warmth and earthiness. I use four beans in my favorite espresso, selected from either Brazilian or Guatemalan, Ethiopian, Yemen or Kenya, and Sumatra or Java. Note that I can do multiple combos of those beans, each yielding a slightly ...

Estate

When a Brazilian coffee is labeled as "Estate" , what exactly does that mean? I've looked around but I haven't found any clues.

Thanks!

Re: Sweet Maria's Espresso Workshop Editions #31 Level Three

We used a Guatemalan coffee, a dry-processed Brazil, and an Ethiopian Yirga Cheffe. The Guatemalan will add sweetness and some body. The Dry Process Brazil will improve that body and add a nutty flavor. The Ethiopian steps in to add the high notes, ...

Re: I have met the beans

... sounds interesting. I think I'll have to try it! There've been a few ho-hum roasts in my past that perhaps would have benefitted. So you're doing Brazils at P3 and the rest, for the moment, at P1? Wait till it's yellow, tilt the machine, drop the tilt when it seems close to first crack or at the ...
