Re: Archive of past offerings?

... with caramel-covered almond, dried cherry, dark berry and melon hints. Cocoa, almond, and spice notes long in the finish. Great for espresso. Burundi Bubanza Ngara - Oatmeal cookie, rindy citrus, aromatic wood, sweet tobacco, and syrupy body. Middle roasts make a great daily drinking coffee. ...

Re: Sumatra Aceh-Mandheling Sort or no sort?

... a 100 g sample I will usually pick out half a dozen or so beans with bug holes or other physical damage. But this is only an issue with Rwanda and Burundi coffees supposedly. All other beans i just try to give it a quick look-over and I might find and discard a few beans that turned dark before ...

Re: Sorting the bad greens from good..

... it's usually not been as bad as anticipated. Its ironic because we had a cupping yesterday with 2 instances of very strong potato defect (it was burundi coffee - potato also occurs in Rwanda coffee). You can smell it from 10 feet away! Yet it is very difficult to find the single bean responsible ...

Re: India Tree-Dried -Mallali Estate Amrita ?

... roaster or my popper I tend to have a more uneven roast. Just yesterday I used my 4lb drum roaster for 1 lb of an Ethiopian followed by 1 lb of Burundi. The Ethiopian was perfect, the Burundi I had to pluck about 20 under-roasted beans. Hopefully someone that has roasted this Indian and can ...

Re: Burundi Kayanza Mpemba

Hey Richard The Kayanza Mpemba is a truly great coffee from Burundi, my favorite this year! I would recommend roasting this to a City Plus too. You will want to finish first crack and let the coffee roast maybe about 45 seconds more but that can change ...

Burundi Kayanza Mpemba

Any recommendations on roasting this in my HotTop for max fruit notes described? I believe SMs suggested City Plus. I still a Noob, but don't really know what bean temp equates to City Plus, or any roasting parameters. I recently did the upgrade to the USB model and have the Artisan thing to "h...

Re: In search of Rwanda Karenge

... period should be coming in the next few months. last year's crop of Rwanda, at least the stuff that SM offered, was amazing. I can't wait! Burundi is similar but also just coming into season. Some Kenya stuff can be similar but Rwanda is definitely its own thing. Just hold tight!

In search of Rwanda Karenge

... are none to be had either at SM or elsewhere. I discovered the Karenge beans come from a type/region called Bourbon, so my searching took me to a Burundi Boubon bean (eBay). It is similar in tasting to the Karenge I recall (full city; caramel/toffee; minimal bitterness; smooth finish; aromatic), ...

I've settled on a Burundi Bourbon bean (closest bean I can find to a Rwanda Karenge in the bourbon region) through eBay and bought 5 lbs. I have a food saver vacuum with ...
