Re: Home Rosting Expectations

... now use just a few profiles that suit the beans and what I'm in the mood to brew. The variety from the different origins is wonderful. We rotate Ethiopian, Central American, Sumatran, and Rwandan, sometimes creating blends. My wife and I recently went to an expensive local coffee shop and discovered ...

Your Kochore lot has migrated to the Ethiopia archive page - sroll 'way down, as there doesn't seem to be any way to link to the specific lot in the archives. So let's see... if you're only interested in espresso preparation, or would be badly ...

First espresso blend with Sulawesi

... things out. A Guat with this Sulawesi (this is the Bone-Bone Village) would be too sharp. FTR, this blend was 30 Brazil/30 Sulawesi/40 washed Ethiopian Yirga Cheffe. The Sulawesi will also need a bump from East Africa - a Kenya or dry-process Ethiopian - to "cover the edge" of the ...

And the winner is...

... as possible. But when I substitute Guatemalan for Brazil, I want that little bit of bitter in the finish that extends the fruit of the Kenya or Ethiopian natural, so I want just a little more heat for just a little longer. But I don't want to page through my roast notes to recall the precise ...

New Silvia in town!

... morning. Wow! Almost as bad as some of the early shots I pulled from my La Pavoni Europiccola. Thin, watery and yet bitter, pulled from a batch of Ethiopian dry process that went to the dark side during roasting. Noticed the grind was very coarse, dialed it down. Shot 2: same results. So I remove ...

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 ...
