Re: Roaster Comparison Test

... judgement most of the home models don't allow much control anyway. My impressions of the Behmor are similar to the author's, and I remember that Guatemalan beans were the worst tasting in that roaster. I wonder who else has compared the Behmor to another common roasting technique? I know Fred ...

Heart of the Centrals

... anything that they're particularly excited about from Central America this year. I've personally been incredibly impressed by the offerings from Guatemala, finding them to be sweet and clean and the work that has been done down there in pushing quality in selection and processing is showing brilliantly ...

Re: Vario Mill suggestions

Continuing in the same vein, sadly bidding farewell to Java Sunda, welcoming back Guatemala Alotenango Finca Candelaria, which should have been a straightforward transition at the same setting (5L). First day a major disappointment -- a poor showing -- where was ...

Re: Hot Top Program

... temperature of the beans as quickly as possible, if I understood correctly, and was reminded of a post on the Coffee Shrub forum about roasting a Guatemala Gesha, that, if memory serves, advocated drying out the beans slowly before going to first crack. If you, or anyone, has any thoughts on the ...

Re: Sounds of first crack

I roasted a pound of SM Guatemalan beans this morning on P1-A and heard the loud, distinct first crack that I was used to. So, the experience that I wrote about in the original post was, if I recall, with beans from Brazil and then Ethiopia, ...

Re: Vario Mill suggestions

... of astringency. Last week took Sumatra Toba Batak Peaberry down to 4L, corresponding refinement in the cup, subtle improvements along the way. Guatemala Alotenango Finca Candelaria balked at this level, introduced a harshness most notably in the finish that vanished by 5L, and harmony was restored. ...

Re: Guatemala Acatenango San Diego Buena Vista SOUR?

symbolic, I think you're over extending the end of the roast which is flattening it out mouthfeel wise. I would tighten up the end of your profile, closer to 12:30 - 13:00 to get it to be a little more in the cup. Also, I agree that you can maybe take this just a little darker for your purposes. - c...
