Welcome back, O Ruler of the Coffee World

... non-Thanksgiving roasting tuit handy, you can expect a small welcome back surprise. (Sometime late next week, I'm guessing.) Meanwhile, let those espresso monkeys chatter and roar! -- Connie

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 ...
