Re: SR700

... some store bought. But the shipment got to me today and I roasted this evening! It was difficult to make a decision on the bean but I bought the Nicaragua La Bastilla Estate El Penon. My wife had complained about my earlier attempts of roasting - that they were too dark so I tried to lighten ...

Re: Roasting El Salvador

... time period. What sort of drum roaster are you using and what is the weight of beans at the start of the roast? I'll be doing two 4 lb. roasts (Nicaraguan Cattura and a Guatemala Antigua La Flor) tomorrow on my BBQ roaster. (for Christmas gifts) If I preheat to 600 or 700 degrees before loading ...

Re: I have met the beans

... feels almost ironic, as this evening I have just closed the jars on the just-roasted Hoja Blanco, and brewed a cup of some nearly two-week rested Nicaragua. It's all about what's promised for a party Tuesday versus what's here, but it still seems more than a little backwards from normal practice ...

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. ...

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...
