Re: Light roasts on a SR500

... 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. I should add that I blend before roasting, mostly ...

Not Sure I Am Roasting Correctly

... 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.

Re: Ethiopia Espresso Questions

... I only use blends for my espresso machine and rarely roast an SO espresso. My blends usually consist of 3 types of beans - Brazil, Ethiopia and Guatemala for example and these are listed in descending proportions. I like Ethiopian coffee so much I use it as the 2nd ingredient in all my blends. ...

Gesha in the SR700

... my son is coming back for Thanksgiving. He's a baristo at a high-end coffee shop in Santa Fe, and he's been educating me about coffee. Tom has a Guatemalan Gesha in stock right now, so I ordered a couple of pounds to share with my son. From what I've read, Gesha sounds like a perfect match to ...

Ethiopia Espresso Questions

... Great taste as espresso. The label said “big mouthfeel and flavor”, which seems like a reasonable description. Very different from the two Guatemalan beans I tried a few days ago, which were also good. I do think I may have gone about a minute too long and probably should have stopped it ...

Timor Eraulu Lauana Villages

... question yet once more -- will this Timor live up to its remote predecessors? I'll let you know in a few weeks. The identity of lost origin #4? Guatemala Coban! For a small country Guatemala has extraordinary regional variation, with some resemblances, but nothing resembles rainy Coban. The ...

And the winner is...

... a smooth-bodied cup (I only do espresso), so after getting through first crack, I want to drop temps as quickly as possible.
