First espresso blend with Sulawesi

... be too sharp. FTR, this blend was 30 Brazil/30 Sulawesi/40 washed Ethiopian Yirga Cheffe. The Sulawesi will also need a bump from East Africa - a Kenya or dry-process Ethiopian - to "cover the edge" of the Sulawesi with some nice berry/stone fruit. I have to say that I'm looking forward ...

Re: I have met the beans

... morning's cup was a light C+ roast of the Kirinyaga Kii AB, which to my surprise is still on the list. It's a strange thing, a "polite" Kenya lot, very sweet and with just enough fruit to make it lively without going overboard. And it's got a surprising chocolaty floor as it cools. It's ...

And the winner is...

... as quickly as possible. But when I substitute Guatemalan for Brazil, I want that little bit of bitter in the finish that extends the fruit of the Kenya or Ethiopian natural, so I want just a little more heat for just a little longer. But I don't want to page through my roast notes to recall the ...

Re: SR700

... blends will be a snap. Want a profile that works for a specific blend, but you'd like it a tad darker once in a while? A snap. Subbing a Yemen for Kenya this time and need to shorten the HIGH heat stage just a tad? A snap. The computer graphics are crude, but why would you care? The controls you ...

New Silvia in town!

... proper temperature surfing. My shot is better than the over-roasted coffee I'm using. So, tomorrow, back to my favorite Ethiopian/Java/Brazil/Kenya blend. Expecting a sip of paradise. My sense is that doing the OPV adjustment will eliminate a lot of Silvia's renowned finickiness. You get the ...

Re: Is there a per coffee list of 1600+ baseline profiles?

I too would like some time of roast tips by coffee's purchased on Sweet Marias.

Some of the recommendations in the manual assume I know more about the green bean than I do.

To second the notion - don't want to learn on my $8 per lb kenyan...

Thanks!

Re: How to get a very fruity, sweet espresso

... for body, warmth and earthiness. I use four beans in my favorite espresso, selected from either Brazilian or Guatemalan, Ethiopian, Yemen or Kenya, and Sumatra or Java. Note that I can do multiple combos of those beans, each yielding a slightly different coffee. But Africans always dominate. ...

Sonofresco Roasting Profile - Kenya Extended Drying Time

Hello, I purchased a Sonofresco ADR control (roasting profile control) and I'm learning how to use it. I read the Sweet Maria's article on roasting Kenyas http://www.sweetmarias.com/library/node/9248 and I'm trying to translate that into a saved roast profile. The article says One of the keys to ...

Re: Scientist with a Roaster...

Question for Old Seed as you use a HotTop. ...With 250gr. of WP Kenya dropped at 220 degrees (day time temp ~ 85 degrees) and reaching 1st Crack at 10:30 (380 degrees), does that sound like I may have a problem with heating element? If it does I guess it's ...

Re: Scientist with a Roaster...

... it. Heater coil looks good but it or board could have arrived defective. Haven't had problem roasting Ethiopian Dry Processed (DP). Just the Kenyas, both AA and Peaberry. Best guess at this point, ...because lower drop temps seem to come out better than higher drop temps and shorter roast ...
