Re: Rwanda Rulindo

So after the Behmor parts arrived and I installed them and had a successful [empty] test burn, the first new roast was ½ lb of the Rulindo. Came in at not quite -16% weight, with a very few snaps in that heat surge that comes from starting the cooling fan. Might be a touch more development than your...

Rwanda Rulindo

I roasted a pound of Rwanda Rulindo to a Full City level with 16.5% weight loss, and with no oil at all appearing on the surface of even one bean. First taste was immediately post-roast, in a blend where I used 40% of the Rulindo. It ...

Re: Rwanda Karongi Gitesi

I had one roast batch of the Rulindo before the Behmor decided to stop in mid-roast (of one of the Peru lots, about which I can say little), and it came out rather lighter than I'd been targeting (13.7%, quite a light C+). It made some sweet cups, and convinced me that this wasn't excessively light ...

Re: Rwanda Karongi Gitesi

Good choices, Dave, please report in the fullness of time! Cocatu coming up soon, after an intervening round of divine Kenya Embu Gakui Peaberry, my last but Atropos insists -- such sadness to bid top quality coffee adieu, a tough act for Cocatu to follow. It is a bean, take it for all in all, I sha...

Re: Rwanda Karongi Gitesi

Well, EGV, you proved to be an effective ambassador for the SM Rwandan offerings. The only other Rwanda coffee I've tried is the Jomba Vunga from 3 years ago, and I went through 25 pounds of it. It was one of my two favorite beans in my 3+ years of home-roasting ...

Rwanda Karongi Gitesi

... end forced me to impose a buying moratorium through the long, cold winter. A cold spring arrived and, to my surprise, the selection of enticing Rwanda beans persisted as well. Reasons unclear for an apparent customer resistance, but this region is a favorite place to look for good coffee. With ...

Re: Big "Thanks" to SM for the 8lb sampler

Wow! You got a great sampler. I just ordered the Rwanda Gitesi and really enjoy the Bourbon coffee beans. Also, the Ethiopians are favorites. You can't go wrong with any of those beans. I would roast the Gitesi first, but all are worthy choices. ...
