Re: Evaluating Roasts vs. Cupping

... and it's too hot to pick up right away. As the coffee cools, the mug cools, and when it's comfortably warm, the coffee is at perfect temp. I like espresso extractions because they don't leave anything behind in the grounds. 14g doubles are undeniably old school. Nowadays, 20-21g passes for a double. ...

Re: Wrong way on a one-way street

miKe mcKoffee of Compass Coffee in Vancouver, had a few words to say about the combination of Gesha and espresso recently on the mail list: Gesha Acatenango Guatemala New crop is in and I have some on the way again. Tom's review says NOT for espresso. I'll disagree with the ...

Wrong way on a one-way street

... GO, DO NOT COLLECT $200 for blending Gesha? So I compound my sin. I grind fine, at about 6 on the Rocky, and I PULL a double shot of this blend as espresso into 2.5 oz of hot water, to make my long black. This was performed on a closed course by professional drivers. Do NOT attempt this at home....

Trying new things

... a very light roast. This light/dark blend probably makes a good pour-over, though I use it for my favorite, long blacks, which is just a double espresso shot in 2 oz of hot water. I like espresso extractions. For the dark roast, I just shoot for full-city, just short of an oily sheen. The success ...
