Cocatu too!

... with this fine bean, a crescendo effect, improving each day. First a little unfair, an impromptu blend with 10 grams more or less of residual Kenya Embu Gakui Peaberry, an unlikely marriage, but nothing could persuade me to discard even a single Gakui bean. No mistaking the velvet edge imparted ...

Re: anomad's Behmor Adventure

... a bit of a learning curve - after the SR500 - (which was basically just watch and listen). Looking forward to getting some darker roasts on some Kenyans I've had problems with on the Behmor - been a struggle getting from a CITY+ roast on them... last batch I went with P1 - B - and kept extending ...

Re: Rwanda Karongi Gitesi

Good choices, Dave, please report in the fullness of time! Cocatu coming up soon, after an intervening round of divine Kenya Embu Gakui Peaberry, my last but Atropos insists -- such sadness to bid top quality coffee adieu, a tough act for Cocatu to follow. It is a bean, take it for ...

I have met some other beans

... instead of enjoying a nice unrested cup of homeroast, I am revisiting a roasted (whole bean, of course) coffee that I used to like: Trader Joe's Kenya AA. First impression, well, it'll help me get up and out the door, but it's trying to increase my appreciation of that twice-roasted Peru. Nothing ...

Re: anomad's Behmor Adventure

I have been using a P3 for some Kenyans - mostly because Kenyans can go from 1st crack to 2nd crack so quickly - you get burnt beans too easily. However - I tend to agree that the P3 leaves a duller taste... I'm going to reroast the same ...

Re: Sweet Maria's Choosing Coffee FAQ

... the descriptions will give you a really good idea of what type of sweetness the coffees have. To get you started, take a look at Rwanda and Kenyas also, our Ethiopias are all very sweet with relatively lower clean cup scores. Take a look at our Colombia Finca Pariso as well.

Re: In search of Rwanda Karenge

... year's crop of Rwanda, at least the stuff that SM offered, was amazing. I can't wait! Burundi is similar but also just coming into season. Some Kenya stuff can be similar but Rwanda is definitely its own thing. Just hold tight!

Re: Slim Pickins?

The Central American coffees I usually like are from El Salvador and Panama, those seem to be in short supply. The Kenya coffee I bought this year was closer to the fantastic Kenyas I remember getting in 2010... ...I don't think the fruity dp Ethiopians have been as over the top ...

Re: Slim Pickins?

... from El Salvador and Panama, those seem to be in short supply. I did think SM made up for it by offering some really nice coffees from Brazil. The Kenya coffee I bought this year was closer to the fantastic Kenyas I remember getting in 2010, I haven't seen the descriptive word "sweaty" ...
