What happened to Guji Suke Quto?

... now (mostly Sweet Maria beans), but only just found this forum! Back when I started roasting, Sweet Marias had the best beans I've ever tasted: Ethiopia Guji Suke Quto. It had a glorious hint of cinnamon that killed me every time I had it. I think I ordered ten pounds of it, which took me a ...

Re: Wrong way on a one-way street

... roasted Gesha can be mind blowing exquisite. Same goes for other not usually for espresso coffees like the shot of 423f roasted 10 day rested Ethiopia DP Konga I just pulled and savoring the linger as I type... Mike's search for Coffee Nirvana may be solitary, but he sends back the most thought-provoking ...

Trying new things

... roasting, mostly out of sheer laziness. Thought it was time to try something different, so here's what I've stumbled on: 100g light roast African (Ethiopian, Kenya, Rwanda) blended with 100g dark roast (Guatemala, Rwanda, Java, Sumatra, Sulawesi, Brazil) Look for more body and more chlorogenic ...

Re: Random Blends

... I planned. The latter have run mainly to variants of the Mokha-Java plan, sometimes with "original design" Yemen and Java beans, but DP Ethiopians are common alternates, and I probably use Sumatra, or other wet-hulled Indonesians more often than the classic Java component. Or even a ...

Jim Seven ponders Nespresso

Interesting look at what Nespresso is doing from James Hoffman.
They have a business model where they can buy whatever coffee they want, because their selling it at high prices. They’re selling their Ethiopian coffee at £53.23 per kilo (delivered of course…).

Re: Behmor 1600 Plus Drum Rotation

I roasted two one pound batches this morning, an Ethiopian and a Guatemalan, and used the default P1 setting. At the beginning of first crack I dropped down to P2 heat and finished the roasts there. I think the 8 rpm roast drum speed works very well ...

An Ecdote of Three Drums

... a lot better than either of the others at passing the chaff out. But it's miserable for some of my favorite "exotic" origins, mostly DP Ethiopia and Yemen, with many tiny beans. Last night I roasted the last of the Konga, and shook out 10g from a 230g pre-shake batch. And in my experience, ...

Re: anomad's Behmor Adventure

With the latest batch of Ethiopian beans in the pantry I am getting a rolling second crack. Which is a terrible thing to do to a coffee bean. (Full pound, P1 the full blast profile)

Tonight I am going to back off to a half pound and try one of the slower curves like P3 or P4.

Jimbean says hello from Maple Valley Washington (Seattle)

... work but take a little more attention as the rubber cannot be replaced (YET) If you are interested, let the questions fly. My favorite bean is the Ethiopian dry processed beans. When I roast I always try to roast just into second crack and let the Gene coast home. Roast on!! :D

Re: SR500 - IMHO, don't!

... aren't an issue for me, so I can't address their longevity or lack thereof. 1. I have not tried to roast any peaberries, but I have roasted some Ethiopian Yirgacheffe beans that were quite small (though with the usual coffee bean shape). I didn't have any problems with beans getting into the ...
