Coffees for Cold Brewing

... any cold brewing, and if you have do you have a recommended coffee and roast that you are satisfied with? I've tried some Guatemala coffees and Ethiopia coffees going from a City+ to a FC+ but have yet to hit on a combination that yields satisfactory results. I'm using a 1 to 4 ratio of coffee ...

Re: Ethiopia Yirga Cheffe Buufata Konga

... a few years and just started roasting with a GeneCafe a couple months ago. I purchased 10 lbs of the Buufata Konga as I generally love anything Ethiopian and was looking forward to the citrus and floral notes I have come to associate with Yirga Cheffe coffees. Unfortunately, I have not yet roasted ...

Re: Ethiopia Yirga Cheffe Buufata Konga

I went through two pounds of it using a popper. This is an incredibly refined, delicate, and sweet coffee. Often we're told that a highly-rated coffee is versatile--good at a wide range of roasts. This is one coffee where that is not true. First, I had trouble roasting it past 14% weight loss. It is...

Re: Behmor with 1/4 pound

Re: Critiques and comments on first roast, plz?

Hi Mike, wow, lots of great info you provide- the voice of experience for others. I said you might have an easier time with a wet processed Ethiopian or Guatemalan for a variety of reasons- as for the wet processing, it just tends to produce a cleaner-tasting brew- the natural process dries ...

Ethopian Misraq Harar SWP Decaf

... a weak and infrequent First Crack, barely discernible Crack 2, but what really bothered me was the weak and nearly tasteless brew. Great fan of Ethiopian and this was a real exception. Question: is this result a feature of the decaffination process?

Re: Ethiopia Organic - Tencho Coop replacement?

... cup. I say that a lot more confidently for having tried two of those blends in the last six months. Ethiopiques might interest you as it's an all-Ethiopian blend; the Altiplano is an all-Central America blend. I've found them both quite enjoyable, both on their own and as blend components (as ...

Re: Ethiopia Organic - Tencho Coop replacement?

Wow - Thanks martin! I appreciate the insight and comparison. I was afraid the the Tencho wouldn't be back. Regardless, even if it does come back, it would be a different batch, so there will still be inconsistency. Shame on me for not ordering me! I think I'll give the Kecho a try. As I said, I'm n...

Re: Ethiopia Organic - Tencho Coop replacement?

Tencho certainly sounds like the sort of operation that SM would like to be able to go back to, but you never know how that's going to work out. There is another Limu Inara that's currently on the list, the Kecho Tirtira, but from a first glimpse I'm not sure they'll be as similar as you'd like. Sin...

Ethiopia Yirga Cheffe Buufata Konga

... picked up a few pounds and was hoping to see roasting notes from anyone that has tried it. These are quite small in size - surprising to me. The Ethiopian Yirga Cheffe I've roasted in the past has been much larger. I'll post notes after I do a few sample roasts ... but hoping that someone else ...
