Nicaragua Mystery

... coffee one day. I tried a cup of Tanzania Peaberry, and I was pleasantly surprised. So, I said to the barista, "I'd like to try a cup of your Nicaragua, french press," because I had been wanting to try a good coffee from there. Lemme tell ya, it was AMAZING. The smell had a defined fruit/floral ...

New Hottop...critique my roasts.

... cup of bright/acid, good aroma, medium body coffee. So far, I've made some barely passable roasts using straight Columbian beans from SM and some Nicaraguan beans from local roaster. I would NOT be proud to serve either to friends or guests. Roasts lack both aroma and brightness/acid and are "watery" ...

Re: Screen-bottom popper solution (Presto Poplite)

... and I can pull the sifter out and leave the (hot) reducer in place. I just did a larger load than usual tonight in this setup, 150g of a Panama+Nicaragua+Paupa New Guinea blend (the beans were similar size and shape) with great results. Here's the sifter, you may be able to find it cheeper somewhere ...

Re: Screen-bottom popper solution (Presto Poplite)

... (+/- 10 deg F, as I did not defeat the thermostat) by varying the fan speed, and run a carefully controlled roast. Tonight's batch of 140g of Nicaragua caturra roasted at about 470 deg F hit second crack at 11 minutes, and came out wonderfully with a very even and consistent roast. I'd love ...

Martin to the rescue

... of buying pounds and roasting grams. Green kilograms would simplify matters, but I dare not suggest it. Drinking another gift bean tomorrow, a Nicaragua pacamara, not as complex as the Nicaragua Pacamara Peaberry last seen in 2008, but a most welcome cup of coffee. e-g-v

Re: Nicaragua - great way to get em off of MacSwill House

... to something new and delicious, especially when they actually like it, which isn't always the case unfortunately! I've only tried one variety from Nicaragua and it was quite some time ago, but I have very favorable memories of it. Need to try some more. Which were you roasting?

Re: Nicaraguan Suyatal (and Behmor)

Gentler is also a slower roast, of course, and that does make a difference in the final results. If you haven't seen the Roasting Theory articles, you might want to take a look - in particular, the three parts of Stretchin' Out the Roast have helped develop my current ½ lb P1 w/door process... not t...

Re: Nicaraguan Suyatal (and Behmor)

OK, I tried a Vienna roast on this. At first it was disappointing. The description of "cocoa-dusted almond" finish does seem right for this, and the Vienna accentuated the "cocoa dust" aspect, not just in taste (a little bitter and astringent) but even mouthfeel, if that's possib...

Nicaragua - great way to get em off of MacSwill House

... 20 year old popcorn popper I had stuck in the back of my cabinets. After going through a Sweet Maria's small sampler, I got a larger one that had Nicaragua beans. After my first roast to C+ with those, I knew I had a coffee they'd like. I roasted a half pound or so for them, ground it the day ...

Re: Nicaraguan Suyatal (and Behmor)

It's just a guess, but... the description calls out C+ to FC+ as the "best roasted to" range. IME, this rating tends to be biased towards the light end - well, these are specialty grade coffees, so it's reasonable that they'd lean towards preserving the origin flavors rather than roasting ...
