Re: Heart of the Centrals

I'm very interested in the latest Costa Rican offerings on SM right now. Really looking forward to trying the Roger Soils La Casona especially, possibly the Beneficio. I might not be ordering again for a month or so, but I'll be getting at ...

Re: ROK espresso maker

Re: Heart of the Centrals

I haven't tried any of the new Guatemalens, but I was really taken with the Costa Rica Helsar-Nancy. After my first roast I went back and bought 5 more pounds. At city plus it's a really clean solid cup. This morning I found it to have a really nice mixture of ...

Re: Roasting Profile to Reduce Acidity?

The Nancy is less acidic than average, but average for Costa Rica is on the bright side of many origins. I know folks that find all Costa lots too bright to be really enjoyable straight. Sumatra and India are two origins that are traditionally lower ...

Re: Roasting Profile to Reduce Acidity?

The other coffees that I've tried so far are Heisar - Nancy and Heisar Leo Rojas Rola from Costa Rica, Lintong 17+ from Sumatra, and Ratnagirl Pearl Mountain Peaberry from India. The Dumerso has been the most interesting in flavor and aroma. It is possible I am becoming ...

Ugly, ugly roast

For ten years I have been using a Cafe Gene to roast Costa Rican coffee. Worked fine. Now the roasted beans come out an ugly mottled color, and are no bigger than green, many with the chaff still on the bean. Not over roasted, not under roasted, just ...
