Re: Kenya Nyeri Giakanja

Well after 48 hours this is a very different coffee!

The sharpness and bluntness has subsided and the chocolate has come to the foreground.

So wait a bit before brewing this one.

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 ...

Idido deja vu after a fashion

... as part of the production process. What happens when they encounter the prized essence of pomegranate? What do they call it? So I went looking for Kenya Othaya Gathuyaini AB on the CC web site. A long shot to be sure, very long, make that hopeless. No Kenyas at all. In fact, the paucity of offerings ...

Re: Thoughts on light roast espresso

... a great find. I tried a pound based on your review, promptly ordered five more. Since I do almost all blends, it will last. I had stopped using Kenyas a few years back when the fruit went sharp and thin, but now I have this almost syrupy, wine-like Kenya back in the blend. My wife, who used ...

Re: Thoughts on light roast espresso

... David -- quite the surprise finding my handle in the espresso section, seldom venture into it, but these are quiet days on the SM boards. FWIW the Kenya Othaya Gatuyaini you reference powered into bean of the year 2015 by dint of sheer excellence, brushing aside many worthy competitors, 12 pounds ...

Thoughts on light roast espresso

... were at the high altar. I'm here to argue for light roast espresso. Right now I'm drinking a blend of one-third dry process Ethiopian, one third Kenya (thx El gran viejo), both roasted lightlightlight, one sixth Guat and one-sixth Sulawesi, roasted City+. The Guat/Sulawesi gives the sweet berry/pomegranate ...

Re: Back to East Africa (encore)

Finally got to sample this Kenya this morning. egv, you are spot on in your description. My first shot (the "tuner" was ground too fine, the shot pulled slowly and was overextracted. Second one was right on the money. Not the ...

Back to East Africa (encore)

Want pomegranates in your cup? Get Kenya Othaya Gatuyaini, more like pomegrenades. Last year's Nyeri Tegu Peaberry played fast & loose with the treasured attribute, this time no beating around the bush. Such an avalanche of top quality ...

I have not met this duskywing...

... to ID, seldom allow a photo of their undersides. Did bug guide help? Sorry, got to run, paddling up north today, enjoying the last of a superb Kenya, one no longer offered or I'd consider buying more. My neighbors don't like it, shocking, hung up on floral yirgs for which I have no particular ...
