Workshop #36 subiramo

Anybody dialed in the espresso brewing parameters for Subromo? I have some roasted to C+ in the Behmor that is resting for 72 hours. Recommendations for brewing ratio, temperature etc. would be appreciated.

Dry processed Yirga Cheffe in Behmor 1600+ 0.5# vs 1#

I've been doing half pound roasts of the Gedeb Asasa Yirgacheffe in a Behmor 1600+, and I've gotten decent espresso but it hasn't been particularly fruit forward. I was curious about trying a full pound. My standard process is to preheat the Behmor until temperature monitor ...

Greetings from a new roaster

... and I would say public service to those trying to get the most out of their coffee enjoyment. My recent plunge into learning to pull good espresso, and the search for ways to get and keep the freshest beans ready for every grind, led me here. Wow :idea: , I must say, the discovery of green ...

Re: Espresso ratios

No 'spro here, but I've been working with 20g of grounds to 320-340g of water into the CCD to fill the mug (actually a double-walled Pavina for almost the whole of the last six years). So around 1:16, but you're talking about the coffee-in:brew-out ratio. Hmmm. I'm not sure how trustworthy this is, ...

Espresso ratios

... starts - so you start the pull as you place the cup. This should let you fine-tune grind and tamp, but that's another topic. Traditional Italian espresso is 1:3, i.e., 1g ground coffee yielding 3g espresso. Somewhere (think Seattle) somebody said "1:1" and the Northwest ristretto was ...

Re: Thoughts on light roast espresso

... it - with the Eth/Ken/Guat/Sumatra blend in the vacuum can. I also went for the Gesha, wasn't blown away, but find it's a nice trick in an espresso blend, a mix-it-up, if you will. Guats are great in espresso - the Gesha is better being a little in the background, if you follow me. Happy ...

Re: Thoughts on light roast espresso

Hi David -- quite the surprise finding my handle in the espresso section, seldom venture into it, but these are quiet days on the SM boards. FWIW the Kenya Othaya Gatuyaini you reference powered into bean of the year 2015 by dint of sheer excellence, ...

Thoughts on light roast espresso

OK, we all probably started at Charbucks, and grew to think that espresso must be darkdarkdark and bitterbitter. We probably thought were The Rules. Yeah, it got boringBoring, but we were at the high altar. I'm here to argue for light roast espresso. Right ...

Re: Special case blending...

FWIW, remember that espresso already has less caffeine than regular drip coffee. More intensity of flavor does not equal more caffeine. Caffeine is a water-soluble element in coffee, so the more water and the longer the brewing time, ...

Re: anomad's Behmor Adventure

... difference between slow/fast drum speed. I find the difference more detectable depending on brew method, the aero press really brings it out. Espresso or french press is less noticeable. Unfortunately I only think to log in on the forums when there is an issue. I almost had a fire tonight. ...
