Questions: Brazil Minas Gerais - Jose Roberto Canato

... that the roast may have been good and the issue was how I made the espresso. I have been able to get good tasting espresso from Kenya's, decaf brazil, Panama and Costa Rica using the basic instructions in the Hottop manual. My beans come from Sweet Maria's, so I know they are quality. ...

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.

Not Sure I Am Roasting Correctly

... do I actually hear a crack after even 5 minutes of roasting, so I usually decide when to stop just by watching t's color. Also, I've noticed decaf beans have more consistency in color after roasting than regular, is this suppose to happen or could I be roasting incorrectly? Follow the directions ...

Re: Home Rosting Expectations

... locally roasted beans. I just finished an amazing cup of dry-processed Ethiopian Konga roasted to city plus. We are hooked. Oh, and if you like decaf at all, the beans from Sweet Maria's blow every other decaf coffee away.

Re: "Naturally" Decaf ?

Using 'Swiss water' is a natural one. Сoffee beans are treated with steam and water, then water goes through special filters, that 'catch' caffeine. Don't worry! :roll:

Re: Donkey Blend Question

... tone and degree you see there but it is ideal and possible to even these out. I find that being gentle with the heat rampup helps when roasting decaf coffees.

Introductions and Getting Started

... to get a feel for the rig. It took me three tries to get beans that were acceptable for brewing, which I had today. I started with Donkey Blend Decaf, with the rationale being that I wanted to try several samples at different settings. Good stuff. I roasted again tonight so I could try them ...

Too quiet...

... yesterday to see if I'd missed anything and 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 ...
