Re: India Tree-Dried -Mallali Estate Amrita ?

... too small a batch in my BBQ roaster or my popper I tend to have a more uneven roast. Just yesterday I used my 4lb drum roaster for 1 lb of an Ethiopian followed by 1 lb of Burundi. The Ethiopian was perfect, the Burundi I had to pluck about 20 under-roasted beans. Hopefully someone that has ...

Thoughts on light roast espresso

... boringBoring, but we were at the high altar. I'm here to argue for light roast espresso. Right now I'm drinking a blend of one-third dry process Ethiopian, one third Kenya (thx El gran viejo), both roasted lightlightlight, one sixth Guat and one-sixth Sulawesi, roasted City+. The Guat/Sulawesi ...

Re: Moka java blends

... can vary from about equal amounts to as little as 1/4 or maybe even 1/5 of the livelier coffee. The latter are typically Yemens, but many Ethiopia DP lots work well, and even some wet-processed lots with plenty of fruitiness. For the base I've found a wide range of things work well, from ...

Re: Yemen Mokha Sharasi roasted in Behmor 1600 Plus

I'm not sure if if I wasn't clear or if this had less to do with one thing I said than... anyway. Roasting the Sharasi, or other Yemens or Ethiopia DP lots, etc., at P1 for a ½ lb batch can be perfectly valid, and in at least one case I can think of made a much better cup than ½ lb with P3 ...

Re: Yemen Mokha Sharasi roasted in Behmor 1600 Plus

... Especially for smaller batches that can make a difference worth correcting for. P3 sounds like a good starting point for most Yemens and DP Ethiopian beans - ½ lb batch would be the usual there for me, with a 2:00 P1 kickstart. I've been moving towards roasting ¾ lb batches more and more, ...

6 Months in - Some Thoughts So Far

... using the modded popcorn popper method with the Harbor Freight voltage controller and it works great. I've come to discover my favorites are the Ethiopians. So far my favorites are Nano Chalala, Duromina, Dry Assasa, and Guji. The only other that has really grabbed me is Columbia Colina.

Yemen Mokha Sharasi roasted in Behmor 1600 Plus

... and all but one of them were drinkable. Most resulted in good cups, and a few were what I consider outstanding. So far my favorite cup is the Ethiopia Yirga Cheffe Baraka Buna, and my wife prefers the Guatemala Huehuetenango Finca Rosma. We brew one cup at a time using an Aeropress, so we ...

Re: City/City+ roasting on Behmor 1600+

Thanks for the advice! I am roasting an "Ethiopian Yirga Cheffe DP - Aricha" right now. The bean smelled amazing even out of the bag. Nice fruity and floral aromas. If these turns out, I may be buying a lot more of this! I'll post back with how the roast went.

Re: Back to East Africa (encore)

... ground too fine, the shot pulled slowly and was overextracted. Second one was right on the money. Not the super-bright berries of dry processed Ethiopian, but the richer, fuller-bodied flavor of the pomegranade - Thx, egv, for the heads up on this one -

Re: Ethiopia Dry Process "Gey" Harar

David - Thanks for your feedback and suggestions. You are correct that more chocolat emerges as this ages. Even at 48 hours, chocolat is emerging. Some of the 'tea notes' are turning into 'coco notes'. I also appreciate your roasting information. In light of your information..and the emerging coco n...
