Re: I have met the beans

... that the years had smoothed out some of the rough edges. Everything I've roasted lately has been worth drinking. I'm ordering DP Ethiopians, some Sumatran, and one of the Brazils because I haven't had any in a very long time. Just wondering if there was anything else out there right now that any ...

Re: Resting after roasting

... 6, but African and Indonesian beans seem to really shine after 8 to 10 days of rest. The difference can sometimes be dramatic. My friend sampled a Sumatra Lintong city plus that I roasted. It was 7 days old. He liked it. A week later when I brewed the same beans, he was shocked by how much the ...

Re: My Sumatra Onan Gunjang Cultivar is coming out too hard

6 minutes on high, fan speed medium, and another time for 9.5 min on low Six min. on high right off seems to me to be too much heat, too fast, regarding drying time. Then another 10-ish minutes on low seems to me to be more like "baking" the beans. Just my opinion, of course, but I've now...

Re: My Sumatra Onan Gunjang Cultivar is coming out too hard

A Sumatra bean, because of the processing style, is generally much softer than other coffees. Without digging too deeply into it, I would say that you probably only engaged 1st Crack and not roasted all the way through it so the coffee just isn't fully developed yet.

My Sumatra Onan Gunjang Cultivar is coming out too hard

Title says it all. Bean comes out hard and flavorless. To copy from my intro thread, which I can't reasonably expect anyone to read: I have an SR500 roaster, and hardly any experience with it. I roasted this once for 6 minutes on high, fan speed medium, and another time for 9.5 min on low, fan speed...

Re: Roasting Profile to Reduce Acidity?

... average for Costa Rica is on the bright side of many origins. I know folks that find all Costa lots too bright to be really enjoyable straight. Sumatra and India are two origins that are traditionally lower acidity, but I recall the Ratnagirl being described as being surprisingly bright for ...

Re: Roasting Profile to Reduce Acidity?

The other coffees that I've tried so far are Heisar - Nancy and Heisar Leo Rojas Rola from Costa Rica, Lintong 17+ from Sumatra, and Ratnagirl Pearl Mountain Peaberry from India. The Dumerso has been the most interesting in flavor and aroma. It is possible I am becoming more accustomed ...
