Re: Not Worth it

... a home roaster for about 10 years now. When I started, I bought beans from a local roaster, but got a little angry when the price per pound for Ethiopian Harrar green beans was the same as the price for roasted beans. So it may have been 7 or 8 years now I've sourced coffee and related items ...

Re: How to get a very fruity, sweet espresso

... fruit, and an Indonesian for body, warmth and earthiness. I use four beans in my favorite espresso, selected from either Brazilian or Guatemalan, Ethiopian, Yemen or Kenya, and Sumatra or Java. Note that I can do multiple combos of those beans, each yielding a slightly different coffee. But Africans ...

Re: Scientist with a Roaster...

... new unit with less than 30 lb. run through it. Heater coil looks good but it or board could have arrived defective. Haven't had problem roasting Ethiopian Dry Processed (DP). Just the Kenyas, both AA and Peaberry. Best guess at this point, ...because lower drop temps seem to come out better than ...

Re: Scientist with a Roaster...

Hi Jim -- I've used a Hottop B since early 2008, many pounds of Ethiopian & Kenyan beans, occasionally disappointing, never "green/flat." Usually follow the default profile -- load at 167F when the beeps start, aim for 1C to commence after ...

Re: Sweet Maria's Espresso Workshop Editions #31 Level Three

We used a Guatemalan coffee, a dry-processed Brazil, and an Ethiopian Yirga Cheffe. The Guatemalan will add sweetness and some body. The Dry Process Brazil will improve that body and add a nutty flavor. The Ethiopian steps in to add the high notes, such ...

Re: How to get a very fruity, sweet espresso

... much of that is the bean and how much is the brewing technique. On occasion I've gotten some very distinct strawberry or blackberry fruit in my Ethiopian roasts. Especially the dry processes. I've never brewed esspresso, but I've noticed with other brewing methods how water temperature and other ...

Re: Ethiopia Shebele-Shakiso SWP Decaf

Mine looks nuked, without any sheen, but it tastes good and I take it just past 1st crack. It's the taste that matters! :lol:

Re: Ethiopia Shebele-Shakiso SWP Decaf

Decaf has little or no chaff as a result of the decaffeination process. I'd agree that it's a bit ugly looking roasted, at least compared to its sexier caffeinated siblings. Roast color is not as reliable of an indicator of roast level as decafs turn dark quickly. So a lighter roast level would look...

Re: Ethiopia Shebele-Shakiso SWP Decaf

I think I bought a pound of this a few months ago. It's the only decaf I've roasted. No chaff and it's ugly as heck and really dried out looking after the roast (air popper) but it tastes pretty good. Are you finding the same in terms of looks?

... even out the roast. But even with the bean inconsistency causing an uneven roast I'm already impressed with the taste of these two examples of DP Ethiopian. Just looking for an even better roast.
