Re: Evaluating Roasts vs. Cupping

... for the Gesha!! That gravel-under-tire sound you just heard was the UPS truck bringing me 2# of Gesha, 2# of the new dry process Yirg, and 4# of Sumatra Toba Tabak Peaberry. OMG... Here's my morning ritual: I have a 5-oz crockery mug (made by a friend) that I fill half way with cold water. Into ...

Re: Sumatra Toba Batak Peaberry - Very Interesting

It is a little exotic...but more "interesting" than funky because of the little extra fruityness...ordered another two pounds...

Whirling beans in the North Bay

... got my wife, who thinks of coffee as something you endure to get the caffeine, interested. Turns out she actually likes coffee a lot, if it's a Sumatra roasted about 10-20 seconds into second crack. Anyway, hello. I've learned a lot here, and I hope to learn more by conversing with you. And ...

Re: Sumatra Toba Batak Peaberry - Very Interesting

The Toba Batak was certainly tasty this morning. Much more acid than the other Sumatras I've had, and a bunch of tannic tree bark/baking spice that has not really calmed down. Formidable and fully enjoyable, but I'm inclined to give it a day or so of rest in the hopes of finding a more integrated cup.

Re: Sumatra Toba Batak Peaberry - Very Interesting

... Beans smell and taste very promising. Looking forward to my morning cup. I'm pretty new at this, but the baking spice and low acids of the Sumatras are really appealing to me, almost as much as the Yirga Cheffes do. Last one I roasted (Aceh Desa Kerawat) kind of reminded me of Teaberry ...

Re: Wrong way on a one-way street

... they pull their doubles through a 20-21g puck - too bitter for me. Guess I'm using the extra water to "thin" the flavor out and the dark Sumatra to replace a full-city roast. Whatever it is I'm doing, it makes a grand-tasty 5-oz cup to start the day. So grand I ordered some more Gesha. ...

Wrong way on a one-way street

... Acatenango Gesha - the last 100g - light roast, I mean, going to COOL before first-crack finishes on my SR700. Then I full-city roast some Sumatra Toba Tabak Peaberry and I BLEND the Gesha and the Sumatra. I mean, like, couldn't you GO STRAIGHT TO JAIL, DO NOT PASS GO, DO NOT COLLECT $200 ...

Trying new things

... so here's what I've stumbled on: 100g light roast African (Ethiopian, Kenya, Rwanda) blended with 100g dark roast (Guatemala, Rwanda, Java, Sumatra, Sulawesi, Brazil) Look for more body and more chlorogenic acids from the dark roast, and then roast the African light to emphasize fruit/sweetness. ...

Re: Random Blends

... the Mokha-Java plan, sometimes with "original design" Yemen and Java beans, but DP Ethiopians are common alternates, and I probably use Sumatra, or other wet-hulled Indonesians more often than the classic Java component. Or even a good mild Brazil - it comes out a little different, but ...
