Re: New guy from Colorado

Re: Hibrido de Timor - how long to rest

I'm sure Sweet Marias would have much better beans than these.
Last time I made coffee with them it made my hair stand on end.
Too much caffeine I think. I've read robusta beans have more caffeine.

Timor Maubesse

... catimor itself. FWIW years ago SM offered a succession of very tasty Maubesses, Timor Varietal per the archives, possibly a typica, no trace of robusta. I eagerly anticipate a return despite the long absence. e-g-v

Hibrido de Timor - how long to rest

... One of the coffees was called "Hibrido de Timor." As far as I can tell from Googling, it's a naturally occurring hybrid of arabica and robusta beans. The rest of the information I found wasn't too flattering, but I figured I'd try them anyway. I'm wondering how long to let them rest ...

Re: No (first) crack sound

... a similar experience and what could be an explanation for it? Maybe try roasting your beans in a popcorn popper. I spend 17 minutes roasting some Robusta beans from Mexico from a Jan 2012 Harvest and didn't hear first crack on my Hottop B-2K model. It was hard to hear any cracking and may have ...

I have Friday beans

perhaps I can blend the "fell of the truck Costa Rica" with the Merapi Robusta and gift it to the neighbor... and then no doubt he'll ask you how you discovered the recipe for some commercial name brand coffee. :-) Had a use-it-up blend this morning, once ...

Re: Gaggia Classic, Ms Silvia or Le'lit PL041QE

... with that: I didn't make a Mocha. It was my homebrew Espresso Blend (Brazil Fazenda Aurea and some Guatemalan Huehuetengo, and about 5% Indian Robusta), a little sweet-n-low and (microwaved, I was in a hurry) skim milk only. It's apparently so far doing it's job. If the PL041 holds up well, ...

Re: Folgers (I know, I know)

... roasting coffee beans, and then bringing them to market, I suspect that the cheaper the coffee is to the consumer, the higher the percentage of Robusta in their blend. And for me, now that I've begun this journey of home-roasting, that's just not an ingredient I want to drink. Just MVHO. Your ...

Just finished roasting!!!

... overly ambitious. I also came across greens that I thought I no longer had and 1 I wish was long gone and thought to be long gone. The Java Merapi Robusta!!! A 2 pound bag of it!!! Seriously? I truly thought I had roasted the last of this early in 2012. Now, once again, it rears its ugly head!!! ...
