Re: Back to East Africa

... pointless to chime in at this late date but I find myself in total agreement with egv's neighbors! In comparison to many area DP's, I found the Ethiopia Dry Process Gey Harar somewhat restrained but one of the nicest cups I've enjoyed in some time. Found it much more satisfying than the Guat ...

Re: I have met the beans

... be. Not that the cup isn't, overall, better after the flavors have commingled during the rest, or developed as Yemens and many of the DP lots from Ethiopia will, but... yeah, mighty good. Which feels almost ironic, as this evening I have just closed the jars on the just-roasted Hoja Blanco, and ...

Re: Distinct like Yirga Cheffe?

No Yemeni coffees in stock at the moment. Too bad. You had me sold!

I'll be picking up more Ethiopians -- curious how the different Yirga Cheffes compare.

Distinct like Yirga Cheffe?

Re: Getting to City

... bean harvesters (a farm, a co-op, a region, a whatever) have quality of ripeness standards in place - probably not so much in many area of Ethiopia. Anyway, no roast of those beans is ever going to correct the beans' differing maturity. Maybe the darker roasts will camouflage it but the ...

Re: Getting to City

Roger ... I've read through your post a couple of times and am having some trouble picturing your roast results. You describe your Ethiopian and Rwanda bean roasts as 'mottled'. I really haven't experienced this despite East African being my favorite bean region. With Ethiopians especially, ...

Getting to City

... I'm trying to get "color and shape consistent" light roast results in. For example, 250 gram, what I've been calling City+ roasts, of Ethiopia Yirga Cheffe Aricha (Eject at 16:41/422 degrees bean mass; 1st crack duration of 2:06) or DP Yirga Chefe Chele'lektu, (Eject at 14:28 minutes/ ...
