Re: Roasting outside in wind

The cause is wind and the bean was Kenya Nyeri Hill and it was thrown out - coffee like this can be found at charbucks. Just having freshly roasted/ground Guatamalean Gesha and wow what wonderful fruity flavor. Gesha is the Burgundy of coffee. ...

Re: Sorting the bad greens from good..

Blending Coffee

Happened to have some Kenya Nyeri roasted beans from previous roast and wondered what a blend of this coffee with Guatamalean Gesha would taste. Wine makers almost always blend their wines - for example if a pure Cabernet is a bit over ...

Re: Idido deja vu after a fashion

... but one pound orders are inconvenient on several fronts, not the least is a near certainty of selling out before re-order. The Sumatra & Kenya are on order, latter choice a little facetious in the sense of basing it on a low score. It got marked down for quakers. Now this could lead to ...

Re: Idido deja vu after a fashion

... an elongated and slightly pointed bean, and a tree with very upright branches, reminiscent of a young pine cut as a Christmas tree." This [Kenya] is right up my alley, coupled with an unprecedented sub 88 score from this origin that makes it even more attractive! OK -- I promised not to ...

Re: BBQ Rotisserie Roaster

... temp - that is of course what the thermometer says. Have found I can get to Full City in 18 to 22 minutes depending on the bean. Recently roasted Kenya Nyeri and these beans have a very quiet crack and little smoke. I start using my bean thief at around 16 minutes. BTW beans can burn and read ...
