Re: 1st Roast - What Would You Call This Roast?

... look different- some color gradually and evenly, some get all splotchy and the individual beans may seem to be at all different stages. Some Kenyans and Ethiopians look like they have more sugar on the outside giving them some dark patches before they're really that far along. I have modified ...

Re: Roasting outside in wind

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: 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.
