Re: Slim Pickins?

The Central American coffees I usually like are from El Salvador and Panama, those seem to be in short supply. The Kenya coffee I bought this year was closer to the fantastic Kenyas I remember getting in 2010... ...I don't think the fruity dp Ethiopians ...

Re: Slim Pickins?

The Central American coffees I usually like are from El Salvador and Panama, those seem to be in short supply. I did think SM made up for it by offering some really nice coffees from Brazil. The Kenya coffee I bought this year was closer to the fantastic ...

Re: HandyBrew dripper

... The brewer drains fine with just water in it but the coffee just clogs the filter up. Just tried again using 800 grams of water, 50 grams of El Salvador coffee at a Baratza grind of 31 and a brew temperature of 205(based on the BonaVita Variable Temperature Kettle) - added 400 grams of water, ...

Re: Roasting El Salvador

Hi Rookieroaster, my roaster is a small self-built unit, and batch size is 180 grams. I have to apologize because I was careless saying "interior air temp" because of course that's ambiguous. In my roaster I measure air temp inside the drum. You must be measuring air temp outside the drum ...

Re: Roasting El Salvador

Now that TapeDeck has revived this thread I'll just comment that I've managed to step up quality a couple points, by moving to a drum roaster and by roasting fast. Following Chris's example. The fastest I've done is 9:06 min, Full City, for washed Yirga Cheffe, and it tasted the best so far (fruity...

Re: Roasting El Salvador

FWIW, (not much, because newb) this was the easiest bean for me, as a new roaster, to get great success out of. I am still studying--I have no idea why this is, but it seemed to roast more evenly and throw its chaff more quickly than any other coffee I have heat-gun roasted. Now in a popper, I'm fin...

Re: Screen-bottom popper solution (Presto Poplite)

... roast with the same El Sal beans went meaningfully faster... First crack around 6.5, second around 8.5. Did a third roast with a different El Salvador bean, and it hit first crack at 6:25. And second at 8.5. All 3 roasts look right, and several hours later, smell like I'd expect. They're very ...

Re: Behmor 1600+ -- First Impressions

... feedback on Behmor +. I have done about 13 roasts on it so far and am finding things to learn and improve with each time. I have been roasting El Salvadoran beans hand delivered by a friend from San Salvador so far, mostly. The results have been delicious. I am roasting .5 or 1lbs after the first ...

Re: Holding out for El Salvador

I recently had one of the better El Salvador coffees in some time - Cerro Las Ranas. A Bourbon grown at nearly 5000'. Less than $6.00/pound (10 pound quantity). Klatch Coffee offers this and some other pleasing beans.
