Re: Rwanda Gitesi

I was really happy with all of the recent Rwandan varieties, and Gitesi was my favorite for sure. there is just such a deep sweetness in here that shows up well even at lighter roasts without getting too tart. definitely some really sweet baking ...

Vienna level roast w/ greater volume than Full City?

... went well into second crack ended up having greater volume than the same bean roasted to Full City or Full City Plus. I have roasted this 2012 Rwanda Jomba Vunga over 20 times in my Behmor 1600. I always roast 454 grams and always aim for a roast level between City and Full City Plus, with ...

Re: Roaster Comparison Test

... size and air speed. I have to adjust the heat very carefully to "land" at the 440*F target within the 2:15 - 2:45 time frame. An example Rwanda 95 gram roast: peak yellow at 3:19, first crack start at 6:00 (385*F exhaust air), and end at 8:13 (430*F exhaust air) with a just a few snaps ...

Favorite Beans

... and Ethiopia without hesitation. Neither of those two have delivered consistently since. What has delivered for me during the last year has been Rwandan and Columbian beans. Admittedly, some of the best beans during the year have come from other countries but these have been individual efforts ...

Re: Will the 1600+ do darker roasts well?

... the full 18:00 of P1, and I lost track of the time until the roast cycle had finished. The weight loss was 18.3% and the beans were wet-processed Rwanda Jomba Vunga. I have 122V at the outlet where I plug in my Behmor 1600, which is likely the primary reason that I have no difficulty roasting ...

Hey!

... be appreciated! Either way, I'm still buying a couple pounds and I'm very excited to see how this goes and play with it. I'm starting with the Rwanda Karenge, India Ratnagiri, and Panama Boquete Finca San Sebastian. I'm looking forward to learning much more! Thanks!

Re: Rwanda Jomba Vunga--- fortunate accident

Well, actually the cocoa flavors do come more to the fore with deeper roasting when you think about it in terms of sugar/sweetness development and caramelization. It usually moves from cereal serves to more malty, then candy sweet, then fruit sweet (like stone fruit or dried fruit), then into vanill...

Re: Rwanda Jomba Vunga--- fortunate accident

Though your lower moisture loss percentage is definitely due to the lighter roast, it could also be attributed to the coffee having a much lower moisture content itself after 2 years. Most likely it arrived to you somewhere around 11% and I'd imagine is much closer to 8% now. So glad you're getting...

Re: Rwanda Jomba Vunga--- fortunate accident

Re: your fortunate accident with the Behmor, I'd be interested to know how you store your green beans. The Rwanda Jomba Vunga has been stored in the Sweet Maria's 20-pound-capacity cloth bag, in a kitchen cabinet. The drawstring has been broken ever since I first opened the ...
