Re: Back to East Africa

The Thanksgiving Holiday cup du jour here combines two parts of the Nicaragua Finca Buenos Aires Caturra #488 with one part of the Ethiopia Dry-Process Yirga Cheffe Konga (the lot from late 2013 - didn't get any of this summer's, alas). The Konga is only in its second day since roasting, ...

Re: Back to East Africa

... detached from obsession with foolish consistency. Big challenge tomorrow -- perhaps 40g left in the grinder, not nearly enough for a full pot. Ethiopia Gey Harar & Oaxaca La Lagunilla waiting on deck, who gets to lend a helping hand? First take -- choice is easy. No way can I imagine the ...

Konas, JBM, Dominicans. 456*/450. Give it a try. Tweak as needed. Your temps may vary, machine to machine. ...

Back to East Africa

... for a while to give the taste buds a chance to settle down, but the enticements are too great to forsake the region altogether. Case in point -- Ethiopia Dry Process Gey Harar -- just when it looked like the extravagant DPs (thinking of various Horses & Bonko "Black Sun" of a few ...

Re: Light roasts on a SR500

... is figuring out those first two stages to get to a nice rolling 1C in a minute at high temp. You have to back into them, if that makes sense. BTW, Ethiopians have always been the heart of an espresso roast for me. I use Brazilians for a "neutral" base, or shift to Guatemalans for a slightly ...

Re: Light roasts on a SR500

I agree with you there. I've enjoyed Brazils and Ethiopian Sidama beans that I've roasted much more as SO espresso, and I've had acceptable results in the past at a full city level. Unfortunately, all I have left from my last order were the beans ...

Re: Light roasts on a SR500

... as I can in the cup. To get more body in a Kenya espresso, I'd add some Sumatra or Java. My basic "formula" for a Kenya drink is: washed Ethiopian, 40% Sumatra or Java, 33% Brazil or Guatemala, 20% Kenya, 7% Note that just from those six beans, there are a multitude of blends at hand. ...

Not Sure I Am Roasting Correctly

Hello forum! I have a West Bend Air Crazy Popcorn Popper, and I've now roasted several times, with a few different beans. I've roasted Ethiopian and Guatemalan beans from Sweet Maria's. However, rarely do I actually hear a crack after even 5 minutes of roasting, so I usually decide when to ...

Re: Ethiopia Gr. 1 Dry Process Yirga Cheffe Kochore

One of my favorites is the dry processed Ethiopian Konga. It is rich in flavor, although I tasted more blueberry notes with last year's Konga. Hard to go wrong with Ethiopian beans from SM. I was in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and picked up some roasted ...
