Re: Light roasts on a SR500

... to a nice rolling 1C in a minute at high temp. You have to back into them, if that makes sense. BTW, Ethiopians have always been the heart of an espresso roast for me. I use Brazilians for a "neutral" base, or shift to Guatemalans for a slightly bittersweet finish. Bittersweet in the ...

Re: Light roasts on a SR500

I agree with you there. I've enjoyed Brazils and Ethiopian Sidama beans that I've roasted much more as SO espresso, and I've had acceptable results in the past at a full city level. Unfortunately, all I have left from my last order were the beans that I wasn't particularly happy ...

Re: Light roasts on a SR500

... you're spot on extending the rest time to three or even four days. Some of the acidity would neutralize. I've not had good luck with Kenya for espresso, so maybe a different bean choice would get you a more "espresso-like" drink. Kenya to me is bright and berry-fruity more than full-bodied ...

Re: Light roasts on a SR500

... roast through the beans (Kenya Kirigami AB) without scorching them (it doesn't feel like I'm grinding rocks in my hand grinder), but the resulting espresso is still not good. It tastes bland and thin regardless of brew ratio (gone from 1:1 to 1:2). I've had better (but not amazing) espresso from ...

Re: Roasting Robusta

... spicey, pleasant peat. I actually enjoyed it as a SO in a press pot but the caffeine amount was too much. I used the remainder as a 5% addition to espresso blends. Added nice crema and didn't dominate the tastes/flavors/nuances. http://kaapiroyalecoffee.com/tag/sethuraman-estate/

Re: Gesha in the SR700

... over-extracted flavor. I realize most people will only use Gesha in a pour-over, but I make something called a Long Black, which is a double espresso shot pulled onto two ounces of hot water. I'm guessing I get about the same dilution i would in a pour-over, and the Gesha doesn't blink at ...

Re: Roasting Robusta

My espresso-mad friend Jim has been known to pull shots of straight robusta - in fact IIRC he has at least once done so with two different robusta lots for a head to head comparison. I know it's not the entire story, but the ...

Re: Roasting Robusta

... smell like Starbucks. :lol: 6. The beans were two different colors for about an hour, then turned all dark. I intend to taste this pure with my espresso machine and then my Clever. I have just started experimenting with blending different beans and roast levels so these very dark roasted Robustas ...

Re: Ethiopia Espresso Questions

I have used several of the SM Ethiopia lots this year and I like all of them. I only use blends for my espresso machine and rarely roast an SO espresso. My blends usually consist of 3 types of beans - Brazil, Ethiopia and Guatemala for example and these are listed in descending ...
