Re: Light roasts on a SR500

... is figuring out those first two stages to get 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 ...

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 ...

Re: Light roasts on a SR500

... as I can in the cup. To get more body in a Kenya espresso, I'd add some Sumatra or Java. My basic "formula" for a Kenya drink is: washed Ethiopian, 40% Sumatra or Java, 33% Brazil or Guatemala, 20% Kenya, 7% Note that just from those six beans, there are a multitude of blends at hand. ...

Not Sure I Am Roasting Correctly

Hello forum! I have a West Bend Air Crazy Popcorn Popper, and I've now roasted several times, with a few different beans. I've roasted Ethiopian and Guatemalan beans from Sweet Maria's. However, rarely do I actually hear a crack after even 5 minutes of roasting, so I usually decide when to ...

Re: Ethiopia Gr. 1 Dry Process Yirga Cheffe Kochore

One of my favorites is the dry processed Ethiopian Konga. It is rich in flavor, although I tasted more blueberry notes with last year's Konga. Hard to go wrong with Ethiopian beans from SM. I was in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and picked up some roasted ...

Ethiopia Gr. 1 Dry Process Yirga Cheffe Kochore

Absolutely love this coffee, huge blueberry/fruit forward notes at the City/City + range. I have tried other Ethiopian and Kenya as of late but I always think about that Kochore. Anyone have any recommendations about other green bean Ethiopian that comes close to the Ethiopia ...

Behmor 1600+ -- First Impressions

... I also changed the beans to a YGZ I purchased here from Sweet Maria's, since I figured that if I nailed it I would love to have my first cup be an Ethiopian (love me them beans). I preheated the Behmor 1:45, then placed the 8 oz. charge. This time around the first crack happened later, as expected. ...

Re: Screen-bottom popper solution (Presto Poplite)

... methods, but seems like things change rapidly with the mods on this popper. But I solved my issue - It was the coffee bean I was trying to roast - Ethiopian Kaffa, I got from Sweet Maria's in a sample pack. Never seems to have a definitive crack and does not smoke at all. Last weekend I ran some ...

Re: Roasting Robusta

... levels so these very dark roasted Robustas should be fun mixing with my other beans I have on hand right now. (Nicaragua Caturra & Pacamara, Ethiopia Yirgacheffe and Guatemala San Jorge) Are these typical results? Any thoughts or advice for the future roasts would be greatly appreciated. ...
