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 ...

Re: Roasting outside in wind

I feel your pain butch. I was mad at myself a few weeks back for getting a small roast of wet process Gunung Gayo Sumatran too dark- for no better reason than I was listening for snaps when I should have been watching the color and time more carefully. What kind of coffee was it, ...

Re: The Corny Coffee Joke Thread

Why is being a harsh critic of Sumatran coffee like being in the junkyard business?

You diss Mandheling all the time.

Re: Ultraviolet

... better. Looking specifically for the "glow" is helpful with some lots as you can see a real outlier in some. Not helpful too much with Sumatran's as they all glow :lol: .... so my take is it helps in the sorting process .. you can do a better job with it than without it if you are willing ...

Re: Middle ground between home and commercial roasting?

... Thanks for this HGBM suggestion Ira. I just tried this and it was super easy and the beans are very uniform, especially since they were decaf. (Sumatra) I didn't weigh the roast I just poured enough to cover the bottom with the paddle spinning, maybe 1/4 lb? Can you really roast a whole lb this ...

Re: Coffee Lemonade

... the coffee. I used about 15 grams of beans and my blend included some dry process Ethiopian Abado Sulula taken to city and some of the wet process Sumatra Gunung Gayo (the latter I had accidentally roasted a little darker that I had intended, to about full city plus). I gave it a good long steep ...

Re: Advice on Blending a Too Intense Roast

... east Africans like a light roast and I think are best blended as well. I frequently blend with Guats and then add some slightly darker roasted Sumatra or Java. East Africans tend to be high in organic acids and the more pronounced chlorogenics from the Indonesians "keep it on the ground," ...

Re: Advice on Blending a Too Intense Roast

... is mainly wasted there for me and I find I like it best in an iced coffee. As far as blending I like it blended with a mellow Brazilian or Sumatran. Nothing too complex because I think the Adabo Sulula is already so complex. So that was was my first experience with a dry process Ethiopian. ...

Re: Idido deja vu after a fashion

... Ocotal, enticing but one pound orders are inconvenient on several fronts, not the least is a near certainty of selling out before re-order. The Sumatra & Kenya are on order, latter choice a little facetious in the sense of basing it on a low score. It got marked down for quakers. Now this ...
