Re: Donkey Blend Question

Thanks Aaron.
I will give it a go.
I roasted again tonight, but went with a SO espresso out of my sampler pack. I went just a wee more than a smidge and probably went just a little too much. It appears it worked out.

Take care.

First espresso blend with Sulawesi

Did my first-ever espresso blend using Sulawesi the other night, have it in the cup right now. I haven't used Sulawesis in my blends in the past because Sulawesi has a distinctive "smoky" edge to it, where I've usually looked ...

Re: Sulawesi Bone-Bone Village

I'm an espresso drinker, but i don't drink SO espressos. IMO, they lack balance. That said, I've not usually used Sulawesi in my blends because it has a certain "smoky" edge to it. Long story short, first espresso blend ...

Re: Kitchen Aid Proline

... build quality and robust design. Pretty much all metal/glass, auger fed burrs, etc. The factory burrs are damn good for anything other than espresso and quite good even for espresso. The only thing KitchenAid skimped on was using cast burrs instead of machined. Granted this would cost more, ...

Re: HELP! Just harvested my 1st plant- need help processing

... from what region do you prefer to buy your green beans? And from SM or elsewhere? What is your preferred roast....light roast, medium, dark roast, espresso? My personal favorite roasted beans are from Costa Rico and I get them at a place called Pete's. One of my favorite smells on earth is that ...

Too quiet...

... and bought some! I've been fooling around with the "Japanese" iced coffee extraction and imagining I'm getting something like iced espresso. Whatever it is, it's full of flavor, less acidic or bitter than some hot brews, and gives me coffee to share with a friend who likes cold ...

And the winner is...

... of them demands a slightly different roast profile. For example, when I use Brazilian as my base, I'm going for a smooth-bodied cup (I only do espresso), so after getting through first crack, I want to drop temps as quickly as possible. But when I substitute Guatemalan for Brazil, I want that ...

Re: SR700

... I would very likely have just replaced my SR500. Sounds like you learned a LOT in a short time. Pulled first shot this morning (I only drink espresso). I'm still dialing the proper grind for my Rancilio Silvia, and today's shot was a little overextracted. The upside is, there isn't a coffe ...

Re: How to get a very fruity, sweet espresso

First off, as far as I'm concerned, GOOD espresso is always the result of blending, though INTERESTING espresso can be made from single origin beans. So if you're going for a fruity, tasty home roast, you'll need IMO at least three kinds of beans: ...
