Re: Back to East Africa

The Thanksgiving Holiday cup du jour here combines two parts of the Nicaragua Finca Buenos Aires Caturra #488 with one part of the Ethiopia Dry-Process Yirga Cheffe Konga (the lot from late 2013 - didn't get any of this summer's, alas). The Konga is only in ...

Re: Roasting Robusta

... blending different beans and roast levels so these very dark roasted Robustas should be fun mixing with my other beans I have on hand right now. (Nicaragua Caturra & Pacamara, Ethiopia Yirgacheffe and Guatemala San Jorge) Are these typical results? Any thoughts or advice for the future roasts ...

Nicaragua Acopio Suyatal vs. La Laguna

Has anyone used the current Nicaragua LA Laguna as an espresso base? Suyatal was dynamite in previous years. I'm also wondering if Suyatal will be offered on SM's anytime soon. The description on Shrub is very intriguing, and peaked my ...

using a BBQ popcorn popper and a heat gun

... the distance that i keep the gun from the popper. I have gradually increased my roasts to 325 grams (and will ultimately try more) and bring some Nicaraguan caturra beans to city in about 13 minutes. In the first part of the roast I continually increase the temperature till i hit first, around ...

Re: HELP! Just harvested my 1st plant- need help processing

... of other companies' offerings and I'll purchase there. There is a coffee house in my city (my neighbourhood, actually) that owns the plantation in Nicaragua for the house bean. But Sweet Maria's variety and level of attention to the quality of what they offer is hard to beat. Definitely rad some ...

Re: Nicaragua Mystery

... m) or "strictly hard bean". The latter are easier to roast in a Behmor, for me at least. There's a Willem Boot article on roasting a Nicaraguan semi-hard bean that emphasizes keeping the heat "moderate", which is hard to do on a Behmor. http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CDIQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fbootcoffee.com%2Fwordpress%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2012%2F05%2FRuling3_reprint_July04.pdf&ei=09BTU769GrOrsQTnw4Ao&usg=AFQjCNHDI7jO8epsrNIUO0vIZcy01JI0_A&sig2=9cJfQmuN912svUhwgyZTuA ...

Re: Nicaragua Mystery

So! I did a few more roasts to investigate further. There's just no way this is the same bean. I'm going back to the shop where I got the stuff, and asking them if they accidentally gave me the wrong bean, or practice voodoo roasting techniques. I roasted from waaaaayyy too light to the kind of dark...

Re: Nicaragua Mystery

Assuming the shop is as accommodating as you've made it sound, perhaps you should be asking them. What kind of roaster do they use? Maybe they'll share some general guidance on how they profile that particular bean.

Luck!

Re: Undeveloped flavor

... 13 - 14 minutes. Excellent results, once I got the batch size and preheat figured out. I still have what I'd call undeveloped flavor problems with Nicaraguan beans and a few others. I am thinking they're somewhere between the dense beans and the Sumatran beans, so maybe P1 with no preheat or even ...

Re: Nicaragua Mystery

Other than letting the roast rest 24-48 hrs., I'll be interested in seeing what others say about this. Assuming you received the same bean, usually "fruit/floral" qualities come out in light/lt.-med roasts. As you go darker the flavor profile comes more from the roast than it does from the...
