Re: I have met the beans

... Being used to "espresso" style, she thought it was too weak, though she liked the flavor. Latest roast: the last of a 3-year-old lot of Kenya Kirinyaga Guama Peaberry; it's neither sweet nor sour, just sort of "is." Even my "just is" coffee is better than K-cups, ...

Re: Kenya is BACK in espresso

Thanx for your postings! I'm an SR500 roaster for both pour-over and espresso; 2-3 double shots per day (no milk drinks). I've had very poor results blending my own espresso, so I've relied on some of my favorites from Sweet Maria's; in particular their Liquid Amber and Monkey Blend. I will, however...

Re: Kenya is BACK in espresso

... but because it offers such a range of flavors depending on roast and blend. OK, I've fixed my "color" elements at 40% Ethiopian and 7% Kenya. This surprised me because I thought initially that altering the color elements would offer the greatest opportunity for multiple flavors. Wrong. ...

Reliability

... before, and none of them performed to my satisfaction. The Z&D did everything right, especially in regard to the light-roasting of the Kenyan coffees which I used almost all the time. As best as I can remember the Z&D lasted around 10 years. I used it around twice a week all that ...

Re: Kenya is BACK in espresso

... on the same theme: Guatemala or Brazil for a neutral base, Sumatra or Java for big-body base, Ethiopian for sweetness and grace, and then Kenya for rich fruit. It's not just the blend that creates the final product, of course. The roast is critical. I've been ramping up through two minutes ...

Re: Kenya Nyeri Gatomboya AB

This bean is underrated in my opinion. I have been buying coffee from Sweet Maria's for years. This bean is some of the best that I've ever purchased from them. The sweetness and long lasting flavor in this coffee is by far some of the best I've ever had. Cup after cup this is bean is very consisten...

Re: Watery coffee

... was modified with an elevated platform for the beans so they were not directly on the pan. I've roasted monkey blend and liquid amber espresso, a Kenyan and Ethiopian. Thanks for your help

Re: Kenya is BACK in espresso

... so past first crack at medium to low heat, so it's not getting darker and it has absolutely no char flavor or scent whatsoever. As expected, the Kenya adds some liveliness to both bouquet and flavor, and I can see a run of these, subbing Sumatra (S) for the Java (J) and Brazil (B) for the Guatemala ...

Kenya is BACK in espresso

Back in my iRoast days, I made a four-bean blend of espresso with Brazil, Sumatra, Ethiopia, and Kenya. Then my iRoast burned itself out - fluid bed roasters always do - and replaced it with a Behmor. I have to be honest - I never got on top of the Behmor, and ended up ...
