Re: Newbie - Developing a profile on a F.Royal 3Kilo

So, both these beans can be a bit tricky. There's a good chance that the Timor could be at least a year or so off crop, and Brazils are always a little tricky to roast, they seem to resist the roast at first and then take off right at the 1st Crack. That said. ...

... still continuing. Overall color is pretty light, not the most even colored batch. The swelling around the seam of the beans is pretty good. East Timor - Organic Dark Roast Drop at 200C/392F Bottom at 118C/244.4F - 2:10 (wasn't able to get notes here on yellow) Tan starts to brown at 162C/323.6F ...

Re: Hibrido de Timor - how long to rest

I'm sure Sweet Marias would have much better beans than these.
Last time I made coffee with them it made my hair stand on end.
Too much caffeine I think. I've read robusta beans have more caffeine.

Timor Maubesse

... improved by the addition of cream. Fortunate it wasn't the dread catimor itself. FWIW years ago SM offered a succession of very tasty Maubesses, Timor Varietal per the archives, possibly a typica, no trace of robusta. I eagerly anticipate a return despite the long absence. e-g-v

Re: Hibrido de Timor - how long to rest

In case anyone is interested…
I let it rest 3 days.
While it is nowhere near as bad as I feared, it's the kind of coffee that is greatly improved by the addition of cream.

Hibrido de Timor - how long to rest

I received a sampler of green coffee beans from a relative for Christmas. One of the coffees was called "Hibrido de Timor." As far as I can tell from Googling, it's a naturally occurring hybrid of arabica and robusta beans. The rest of the information I found wasn't too flattering, ...

Re: Identifying cultivars in the field

... ripe. I brought some home, and the beans are not elongated and to my eyes indistinguishable from arabica beans. If not robusta, could this be catimor or hybrido de timor, or can other arabicas manage at this elevation? Here are some photos: http://www.flickr.com/search/?w=42035413%40N00&q=rob&m=tags ...

Slim pickings?

Not really -- looking through favorite origins (almost all centrals these days -- long time no see Timor Maubesse or Cameroon Caplami Java) plenty to choose from. The Nics and various Guats stand out. Problem with the latter is I'm more or less with Jim (if remembering correctly) ...

iRoast 2 updated for 2011?

... 5 400F / 1:00 The box also sports a note stating that the iRoast 2 now features more consistent roasting and modified presets. I had a bag of Timor from a local roaster/green bean seller that I decided to use for the inaugural run, with a 150g batch. I found the roast a little less consistent ...

Re: Greetings from Seattle!

... to your base. Coffees from Indonesia work well for this. Coffees like a Sumatra Mandehling, perhaps a Lintong, but also coffee from Sulawesi and Timor. I have also used a Java and a Bali from Sweet Marias for my base note with good effect. I liked those two because they were very clean and added ...
