Re: Roasting Different Types of Green Beans Together

... of first crack, and use it in my espresso blend. I have been pleasantly surprised at how GOOD this tastes: 10% Monsooned Malabar 10% Brazil 40% Sumatra 40% random blend

Re: Distinct like Yirga Cheffe?

Kenyans, acidity spikes.

JBM - simple, chocolates/nuts.

Good Konas - clean, balanced, simple, cedar, some florals

Sumatrans - have been getting cleaner and cleaner recently. Used to be forest floor giveaways.

Geshas - very structured, layered flavors/florals, complex.

Re: Light roasts on a SR500

... around Full City because I like to preserve as much of the fruit origin as I can in the cup. To get more body in a Kenya espresso, I'd add some Sumatra or Java. My basic "formula" for a Kenya drink is: washed Ethiopian, 40% Sumatra or Java, 33% Brazil or Guatemala, 20% Kenya, 7% Note ...

Re: Gesha in the SR700

... brewed yet, but the aromatics from the roasted beans are quite remarkable. I did an almost honeyed roast with dry processed Yirga Cheffe and Sumatra peaberry on Tuesday. The gesha does not have the depth and richness of that blend, but the high notes in it are HIGH. If the Yirga/Sumatra blend ...

Re: Behmor 1600 - First roast, step by step recommendations

... Once you're familiar with the basics you should be able to recognize the same signs even with the usually much quieter, sparser first crack of a Sumatran, or the very different (and variable!) colors of decaf, etc.

Re: 1600 with Plus panel upgrde - Err7??

... on setting the time for the 'C' button. What about coffees that show little to no sign of 1C at all? I have one heck of a time hearing 1C on many Sumatrans, especially the Aged Sumatran (2007), though 2C is loud and clear.

Re: Home Rosting Expectations

... that suit the beans and what I'm in the mood to brew. The variety from the different origins is wonderful. We rotate Ethiopian, Central American, Sumatran, and Rwandan, sometimes creating blends. My wife and I recently went to an expensive local coffee shop and discovered that our coffee is just ...

Hey! Who you called a putz? :shock: :lol:

But I do agree, all your reasoning for roasting pretty much parallels many of mine. Not saving any money at all roasting my own beans, just enjoying the resultant. *he says, as sipping on a lovely Sumatran* :)

Re: How long can I store my green bean before it turns stale

... with the same old. Sure, some results are maybe not quite as great to my taste, but rarely do I have a resultant that is not enjoyable. That Aged Sumatran (2007) I was mentioning, was basically like the flavour profiles of many of the Sumatran offerings, except on steroids. The heavy bodied, earthy ...

Re: How long can I store my green bean before it turns stale

... years old, and the results were great. I usually order about 50-60 lbs at a time, and reorder when I am down to around 20. I just love the Aged Sumatran that SM carried a couple years ago, and when I saw the order volumes dropping, due to supplies running out, I ordered a schwack more, and still ...
