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, ...

Re: old coffee instructions/recipes

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 ...
