Re: I have met the beans

Those names sound about right for the Robusta Shot-off contestants. That may have been when I first realized just how, uhm, eccentric you could be! You and your espresso monkeys (and what's this, did they turn into squirrels or has the chorus ...

Forgot about that!!!

Martin, you have refreshed my lack of memory. I now do remember that I did do a comparison of 2 robustas. It was between the Java Merapi Robusta and the India Sufia? Robusta. Not sure if that was name of the India Robusta but we will go with it. That was a crazy idea!!! ...

Re: I have met the beans

I don't know... back when you were having shot-offs between two Robustas it seemed like you were a leading candidate for "Who orders a second bag of Robusta?". :-) Tuit found, Columbia Tiamana roasted, filed on the coffee shelf to get some rest. ...

It's the DeLorean!!

... of the shelf, then I find it months later. Should have done something years ago to stop that. And I honestly don't know where that Java Merapi Robusta came from... I know I ordered one 2# bag but really don't remember that 2nd one!!! And why would I order that much robusta? But the discovered ...

... I came across a bag of around 2#'s of the FSDBV!!! I thought I had roasted all of it. And next to it was a 2# bag of, wait for it - Java Merapi Robusta!!! How many bags of this did I buy?!

Happy New Year!

... tasting fun as well -- can't identify the components, other than to note that they're "different," and I think once I had a hint of some robusta, in just one cup. I'll try to sort it all out when life gets "normal" again. Though these days, I swear I don't know what "normal" ...

Re: Roasting Robusta

I roasted some robusta in the past, and I stopped the roast when it got into second crack. I let my robusta age for three months, and it is still quite pungent. I can NOT use more than 3% robusta in any of my blends - otherwise it is too much for my taste.

Re: Roasting Robusta

Within 30 min. after roasting all the beans were a uniform black. I have 1lb left, so I'll shoot for a bit lighter with that.
