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...

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
