Congo Kivu Bukavu-Beni - Potato Defect?

Since Congo isn't a usual offering around these parts I hadn't even considered if the crop is subject to potato defect. I made it to the last ~40 grams of my 1 lb bag and had the dreaded smell coming from my grinder this morning. ...

Re: I have met the beans

... of material to work with -- I bought 10 pounds. Buyer's remorse? Not a chance. I'm sure this bean will come around with much less effort than the Congo beans. Thanks for the compliments. You are right -- a DSLR with a large tele zoom hangs from the neck like an albatross, max zoom "only" ...

Re: I have met the beans

Thanks, Mike! Glad to hear from you! I'll have to check out the Congo. Re the Sumatra Toba Batak Peaberry, I'm passing on anything peaberry this time around -- though I loved the last Toba Batak I had, except for the fact that my drum looked like a porcupine ...

Re: I have met the beans

... Several others were beckoning with almost equal persuasion, the new Pavon & other Huehues, but there is a limit to consumption. Last month the Congo Kivu Bukavu-Beni arrived, sadly coming up a little short first roast. I so much wanted to taste chipotle peppers, no such luck. The "truly ...

Re: Congo Kivu Bukavu-Beni

As espresso, it did have a strange sour note I did not like. Same here. I tried for a whole afternoon to dial in my machine for this bean, but couldn't shake the sourness. The CCD brew was much earthier than I was expecting, but I must say that my favorite brew method thus far has been Aeropress by...

Re: Congo Kivu Bukavu-Beni

I, too, was stoked to try this. I even did research to see which of the 'Congos' on the globe produced this coffee. I was hoping that this would be similar to the Ugandan coffee SM stocked two years ago. The Ugandan was great as a blend base - chocolatey, little ...

Re: Congo Kivu Bukavu-Beni

First cupping this morning...and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised at how much I was able to detect in this complex cup!!! It really does have the thick body and earthiness of an Indonesian or island coffee...with an undeniably sweet finish! My brewing method may have masked some of the ...

Congo Kivu Bukavu-Beni

STOKED about this one. Just roasted my first batch at Full City...resting it a couple days before I try it. Interesting African as it didn't give off much chaff and seems like a much larger bean than other Africans I've roasted. And seeing as how I have a tender spot for Sumatrans and also for the b...
