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.

Re: Holding out for El Salvador

I asked a somewhat similar question a few days ago (by email, which is better for this sort of thing just because it's more likely to be seen, hence answered, sooner that way), and the sad news I got was that neither the Siberia Bourbon nor the Finca San Diego Buena Vista from Guatamala were expecte...

Holding out for El Salvador

Are there any El Salvador selections coming down the pike, specifically Siberia Bourbon or any of the Majahaul selections? As suggested, Siberia was an outstanding espresso base, and Tempisque was so versatile. Thanks. CJK

Back to back roasts on the 1600-Plus

I needed to roast 1# of an El Salvador, and since I usually just roast in 1/2# batches, I decided to run 2 batches back to back. The first run I used 1# P3 C and switched to manual mode. 1C was at 6:50 remaining. I pressed "C" ...

Re: Heart of the Centrals

... enticing beans to keep passing by, looks like it's time for an order of multiple two-pounders. Grim note -- no pacamaras & nothing from El Salvador -- rusted away? Siberia pacamara a favorite here, every year going back to 2009, fearing the worst. More distraction -- Cameroon (LOL -- central ...

Re: Heart of the Centrals

... the Panama crop was particularly hard hit by numerous maladies, and that good beans may be very limited this year. Any comment? Lastly, I love El Salvador Finca Kilimanjaro. Only offered through Coffee Shrub last year. Any word on this?

Re: Screen-bottom popper solution (Presto Poplite)

... and realized it was the wrong kind - It's a Prestolite with a screen! Oh well, again, let's give it a try. The first batch I tried was an El Salvadoran decaf. It behaved nothing like what I was reading - no chaff, no pops nothing. So figured I had to go get another popper. Then I tried a ...

Coffee rust problem

... on reputable news sites (NPR, NBC, etc.) warning that coffee "rust" fungus is threatening crops in Central America, especially El Salvador, and is expected to reduce the crop size up to 40% or more and that coffee prices will jump significantly as a result. Ironically, a search ...

Re: Guatemala Acatenango San Diego Buena Vista SOUR?

... the importance of resting. Some of my favorite beans improve for several days, being at their best after a week or so. An example would be El Salvador Finca Siberia Bourbon. I recently found 1/2lb. Of SM Monkey Blend that I roasted in January, then put it in an unaccustomed location where ...

My first roast with Air Crazy

... learning and decided to start with the Air Crazy and the 8lb sampler. I set up on the deck outside, where it was 68 degrees. The first batch of El Salvador coffee was in the unmodified AC. 1C at 3:00. Never reached 2C, so stopped it at 9:00. Guessing it is City plus. I took the AC apart and pried ...
