Re: Sumatra Aceh-Mandheling Sort or no sort?

I've enjoyed many different lots of Sumatra and other wet-hulled Indos, and I always give the greens at least a cursory once-over before roasting. 21g sounds 'way high, but perhaps it's just an understandable reaction to the typically messy ...

Re: Sumatra Aceh-Mandheling Sort or no sort?

Thanks for posting those links- I remember seeing them before now, though the hierarchy of Sumatran grading hadn't truly sunk in for me until I reread that just now. To repeat and summarize, most wet-hulled (Mandheling) Sumatrans for export are "grade 1", but ...

Re: Sumatra Aceh-Mandheling Sort or no sort?

Hi caffiend! I haven't tried that particular Sumatra, and hopefully Martin or someone from Sweet Maria's can offer more specifics. But in general the only coffee I have given much scrutiny to before roasting is the Rwandan ones, since I heard about ...

Sumatra Aceh-Mandheling Sort or no sort?

First Post. I have been saving a pound of Sweet Maria's Sumatra Aceh-Mandheling for a while now. This afternoon I decided to pull it out and roast it in my Behmor 1600+. Should I try to pull out any defects before roasting? What defects should I be looking for?

Re: SR500 how uneven is my roast

... roast up. The description for the wet-processed Flores Wae Rebo says it roasts evenly, but that's in the same sentence comparing it to semi-washed Sumatra coffees, which give you some of the most uneven looking roasts you'll ever get when you roast at the lighter levels. (But they end up being ...

In praise of Gunung Gayo

I see that a new batch of Wet processed Sumatra Gunung Gayo was added to the new arrivals list. I still have some from the first batch, which went out of stock very fast, and I think it is fantastic! https://www.sweetmarias.com/product/sumatra-wet-processed-gunung-gayo-5095 ...

Re: Hello

... good sometimes but I don't think I know what I'm doing with it yet. I got almost a pound of that left so I get a few more tries though. I love Sumatra coffees, especially at the lighter roast levels. Haven't had a Costa Rica that I found memorable, but I will keep looking- in memory of the ...

Hello

... panel, but that upgrade will be coming soon. I like just about everything I have roasted with the exception of the island coffees - Costa RIca, Sumatra, etc. There is just an earthy / volcanic flavor I can't get past. I have two brewing setups - one for work and one for home. At work I have ...

Re: Screen-bottom popper solution (Presto Poplite)

... like continuous cranking does give a more even looking (but not necessarily better tasting) roast. One of my favorite roasts so far has been a Sumatra Mandheling that is all over the place in appearance, but has been a sublime blender and supremely aromatic. I'm considering a motor and pulleys ...
