micro blend/micro roast/micro brew

This is a sort of update on the Kenya is back thread, but then again, it's not. It contains one contrarian idea. First off, the ground rules. I roast in 100g batches (micro), and i roast in a FreshRoast SR500. Why anyone thinks there is a ...

Re: Undeveloped flavor

... lately -- 115 - 117V under load -- and find my Behmor works very well with 1/4 - 3/8 lb, but no more. I get nice C+/FC roasts of Guatemalan, Kenyan, Ethiopian, Sumatran beans. I roast a somewhat larger quantity (3/8 lb maybe) of Sumatran on P3 1# (yes, the 1 pound setting, so the ramp goes ...

Hello from another new poster!

... nailing it and feel like I've gotten beyond "Roasting 101", even if just barely. And that may be in part because of the killer batch of Kenya beans SM stocked earlier this year. Those were eye opening to me. For brewing right now I use mainly a Chemex 6 Cup with a Kone. I have a passable ...

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...
