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?

Re: Scientist with a Roaster...

... 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.

Re: I have met the beans

... useful (remember, ½ lb batches mostly; tilting more often mentioned by folks roasting 1 lb). Then this spring I got a bag of the Aricha (another Ethiopia DP lot - so many have come and gone this year), and while it made a perfectly fine drinking cup with what was then my standard first-roast ...

Re: I have met the beans

... to fully express its personality. I'm in the mood to try out one of the Mexicans in the morning, unrested. Then maybe on to Sumatra, or maybe the Ethiopia DP Konga, next. It'll be fun to play SO's off against each other, and have a trio to mix as well. I'll try to remember you said the Konga needs ...

Scientist with a Roaster...

... articles on roasting DP Brazil, and Kenya beans. Very interesting and I'm looking forward to implementing those ideas on some recently acquired DP Ethiopian & Kenya beans. But from a "newbie" point of view I have yet to find a definition for what the "Drying Stage" (DS) ...

Heads Up: Sale Alert!

... were quite out, so I do have two pounds to try. Now I want to try three coffees immediately and it's driving me a bit crazy. There's also a DP Ethiopian (Dumerso) on the sale list, that I ordered just 2 lbs. of. I should try it pronto, too. But I got 4 lb. of Konga (the other DP that's now ...
