Re: Resting after roasting

I'm going to have to agree here on resting bright roasts. I roasted 1/2 lb. of Ethiopian Guji Shakiso to about a city+, and put it into an AirScape container with the top lid off and handle "open" for about 12 hours, then closed the handle, put the second ...

Re: Ethiopia Dry Process Gr. 1 Yirga Cheffe Aricha

... so it might be a few weeks before I try it, but I think I'll see what the big deal is about this one soon. I did end up with a free sample of an Ethiopia DP from a new roasting business out of curiosity. the roaster called it a city+ but there were a few oil spots and some craters going on, with ...

Re: Ethiopia Dry Process Gr. 1 Yirga Cheffe Aricha

When this coffee first became available I immediately decided to order 10 pounds. To me, nothing beats a dry processed Yirga Cheffe, and this is at the top of those I've had over the years. I roast it into the edge of FC and usually dump it at 221.5°C indicated by the digital bean probes on my Quest...

Re: Ethiopia Dry Process Gr. 1 Yirga Cheffe Aricha

I can't believe it took me a month to get back to this lot... Roasted today, ½ lb, 2:00 manual leg 0, quickly switched to ½ P1 for "the rest of the roast". As it turned out, I guess I'd have had time on a plain ½ P1, but with the summer heat comes earlier thermostat cycling, and I didn't w...

Favorite Beans

... the most consistent lately. Up front, I must admit that I don't do Indonesian or island beans. A couple of years ago, I would've said Kenya and Ethiopia without hesitation. Neither of those two have delivered consistently since. What has delivered for me during the last year has been Rwandan ...

Re: Will the 1600+ do darker roasts well?

... use P3 D and max time. One thing I have noticed is no matter what I do I don't like how African coffees come out. Kenyan is the exception but Ethiopia and Yemen are way too bitter. I seem to like them when I have tried professional roasters but not my own. Does that make any sense to you? ...

Re: Dry Process Konga-Yes!

... Ethopian from the Konga area of Yirga Cheffe! It stood out to the cupping team among many other dry processed samples when they visited southern Ethiopia. The altitude for this coffee is up in the 1900 - 2100 meter range. It's a great example of a dry processed coffee and at that lighter roast ...

New Old Dog...

... father's shops. Although the latter are at least tolerable, if they would only politely give up on calling everything by some generic name. Kenya? Ethiopia? Columbia? Pretty big places, those. Oh, well. Enough. We don't rant, don't insist, and don't harass the poor shopkeepers trying to make a ...
