Re: Hottop Profiles - P

... as good as what Counterculture Coffee, to give one example, routinely produce, and have yet to obtain notably good results with the Guatemala or Panama gesha beans. That said, like you, I also have a busy life, between the love of a woman, work, travel, sport, and hobbies, so I haven't had, and ...

Re: $25+/pound

... doing with the fan during these Ethiopian roasts? Also, am I even correct in comparing beans grown in Ethiopian to an Ethiopian cultivar grown in Panama? B. I've roasted several pounds of the 2012 and 2013 crops. This cup reminds me very little of an Ethiopian - DP or not. Too, I would strongly ...

Re: $25+/pound

... doing with the fan during these Ethiopian roasts? Also, am I even correct in comparing beans grown in Ethiopian to an Ethiopian cultivar grown in Panama? B. I am not the person to ask about Ethiopian bean comparisons. Heck I have only roasted two batches of a blend. As for the fan, I can tell ...

Re: $25+/pound

Barrie,

Thanks for the reply. What are you doing with the fan during these Ethiopian roasts? Also, am I even correct in comparing beans grown in Ethiopian to an Ethiopian cultivar grown in Panama?

SM Roaster & Roast Profiles

There's been quite a discussion on another thread regards roast difficulties with the most recent Panama Esmeralda Gesha. A poster with a $1000 home roaster said the he's had no trouble roasting this bean but there haven't been any other successes mentioned. This means that ...

Re: $25+/pound

... sounded. The cup was uncanny, almost achieving Ethiopian extravagance, counterbalanced by a distinctly non-Ethiopian factor I'll attribute to the Panamanian terroir for want of a better explanation. Did I like it? O yeah, despite not being a big fan of florals, which play so well to the cupper's ...

Re: $25+/pound

... by way of advice. Quite disheartening and I must admit that I too wondered about the possibility that bags and grades were being shuffled in Panama. Anyhoo ... according to what's been posted on this thread, not a single amateur has yet had a satisfactory roast with this bean and I just can't ...

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 ...

Re: Just Not Working For Me

Roasted my Panama Esmeralda Gesha (from late October 2013) this morning. Continued with the one-minute drying cycle. Beans were still quite damp and didn't immediately leap into action in my SR500 (fluid bed) roaster. I used the ...
