Re: Kenya Nyeri Gatomboya AB

... that one was so nice and many other Gatomboyas from local roasters have been so killer, I went ahead and got a 5 pound bag of the new batch of Kenya Nyeri Gatomboya AA. I'm drinking the second cup of my first roasted batch of it (roasted two days ago) and it's pretty nice, albeit tarter than ...

Questions: Brazil Minas Gerais - Jose Roberto Canato

... roast, indicating that the roast may have been good and the issue was how I made the espresso. I have been able to get good tasting espresso from Kenya's, decaf brazil, Panama and Costa Rica using the basic instructions in the Hottop manual. My beans come from Sweet Maria's, so I know they are ...

Re: Distinct like Yirga Cheffe?

Kenyans, acidity spikes.

JBM - simple, chocolates/nuts.

Good Konas - clean, balanced, simple, cedar, some florals

Sumatrans - have been getting cleaner and cleaner recently. Used to be forest floor giveaways.

Geshas - very structured, layered flavors/florals, complex.

Re: Moisture Loss During Roasting

... expects the moisture content has been reduced, temps ramp up more quickly. Not sure how to make any of this scientific. In my experience, many Kenyans reach a given degree of roast with less weight loss, and more quickly.

Re: Back to East Africa

... morning and stuck to plan A, but it wasn't a success. The Oaxaca presence too small to express itself, accomplishing little more than dimming the Kenya, result kind of muzzy. What I am thinking is that next PB roast an overdose perhaps of 5 grams at the slightly coarsened setting will be the ticket. ...

Back to East Africa

... any time, wish I had a better grip on the quakers, though. Not sure which to cull. Second case in point comes from the land of the fruitbomb -- Kenya Nyeri Tegu Peaberry -- description typically glowing for Nyeris, unexceptional for the area until a land mine detonated under my seat -- pomegranate! ...

Re: Light roasts on a SR500

... road. I think you're spot on extending the rest time to three or even four days. Some of the acidity would neutralize. I've not had good luck with Kenya for espresso, so maybe a different bean choice would get you a more "espresso-like" drink. Kenya to me is bright and berry-fruity more ...

Re: Light roasts on a SR500

I followed your advice, and got a more even roast through the beans (Kenya Kirigami AB) without scorching them (it doesn't feel like I'm grinding rocks in my hand grinder), but the resulting espresso is still not good. It tastes bland and thin regardless of ...

Ethiopia Gr. 1 Dry Process Yirga Cheffe Kochore

Absolutely love this coffee, huge blueberry/fruit forward notes at the City/City + range. I have tried other Ethiopian and Kenya as of late but I always think about that Kochore. Anyone have any recommendations about other green bean Ethiopian that comes close to the Ethiopia Gr. 1 ...
