Re: Roasting Robusta

... or advice for the future roasts would be greatly appreciated. ... I once roasted some Indian R-certified from Kaapi Royale. It was the best robusta I have ever tasted. I did not get the dual-colored beans which you did. It did not have the rubbery taste that most robustas do. I pulled it ...

Re: Roasting Robusta

... of days. :) Also made a 26 g to 400 g cup in the Clever. This was not too bad actually. I've got a blend loaded in the Clever we'll try next. 7 g Robusta, 10 g Caturra & 9 g Yirgacheffe. Edit: Didn't add anything positive to the cup. :(

Re: Roasting Robusta

My espresso-mad friend Jim has been known to pull shots of straight robusta - in fact IIRC he has at least once done so with two different robusta lots for a head to head comparison. I know it's not the entire story, but the part of his description that sticks ...

Re: Ethiopia Espresso Questions

... good blending components, but not so good as a straight or SO cup. Thought tastes do differ, and my mad friend Jim used to pull straight shots of robusta on occasion... The DP Yirge called Konga isn't in that category, but it does say in the review We have used small amounts of this one in espresso ...

Re: Filipino Coffee -- Kapeng Barako

... and "Vietnamese" coffee (which is actually how they drink it in Malaysia too). But I find the idea of better quality Liberica (and Robusta, for that matter) very intriguing. So if anyone has sources for high quality LIberica or Robusta let me know..and if someone from SM could at ...
