Re: Slim Pickins?

The Central American coffees I usually like are from El Salvador and Panama, those seem to be in short supply. The Kenya coffee I bought this year was closer to the fantastic Kenyas I remember getting in 2010... ...I don't think the fruity dp Ethiopians have ...

Re: Slim Pickins?

The Central American coffees I usually like are from El Salvador and Panama, those seem to be in short supply. I did think SM made up for it by offering some really nice coffees from Brazil. The Kenya coffee I bought this year was closer to the fantastic Kenyas ...

Re: Gesha in the SR700

Maybe this will push you over the edge. My son works in a cooffee shop in Santa Fe, and they got hold of some Panama Esmeralda from Stumptown Roasters just before Thanksgiving. I sent him back to SF with a roast of Tom's Guat gesha, and he pronounced it "Excellent." ...

Questions: Brazil Minas Gerais - Jose Roberto Canato

... the roast may have been good and the issue was how I made the espresso. I have been able to get good tasting espresso from Kenya's, decaf brazil, Panama and Costa Rica using the basic instructions in the Hottop manual. My beans come from Sweet Maria's, so I know they are quality. Any suggestions ...

Re: Heart of the Centrals

I've had a tough time roasting Panama Boquite Finca San Sebastian. Uneven roast where some are hitting 2nd and other haven't hit 1st yet. Never had that happen before. It been the same story for 3 roasts now.

It's good, but only after spending a good while picking out the uncracked beans...

Re: Light roasts on a SR500

... full city level. Unfortunately, all I have left from my last order were the beans that I wasn't particularly happy with my espresso results from (Panama San Sebastian, India Ratnagiri Pearl Mountain peaberry, and a Rwanda Mutovu Cooperative). I got some Intelligentsia Ethiopia Kurimi (Sidama region) ...

Re: Geisha

... seller reviews, some beans will be truly remarkable and some less so - sort of like all green beans. The last great Gesha that I had was from a Panama crop two crops ago. Given my experiences with Geshas over the last three years, I can't make a rational (financial) argument to purchase them ...

Re: Geisha

... "sophisticated" coffees with tons of nuances going on in the cup. It is fun to pick apart the florals. A Gesha is not 4 times as good as Panama or a Guat Bourbon which SM's might score as an 88. It is qualitatively better but just as with wines, you are paying a very high cost for incremental ...

Guatemala Acatenango Gesha with the Behmor

... nice first crack nice color but even letting the coffee rest no fruity notes or floral aromas, i guess under developed. I guess i am just used to Panama Gesha, just cant dial it in on the Behmor. Has anyone else roasted these beans with the Behmor??

Re: Heart of the Centrals

I particularly like the regular coffees (not gesha) from Panama. In recent years, especially Volcancito Don K and Volcancito Don Pepe. Are either of these in the pipeline? I am almost out of my 20 pound bag of Don K that I got last year, and would really ...
