Re: Will the 1600+ do darker roasts well?

... and max time. One thing I have noticed is no matter what I do I don't like how African coffees come out. Kenyan is the exception but Ethiopia and Yemen are way too bitter. I seem to like them when I have tried professional roasters but not my own. Does that make any sense to you? Fred P1 is all ...

Re: Long Roast Profile - Yemen Mokha Sharasi

I generally recommend longer roast profiles for dry processes coffees, usually the best way to produce the sweetest cup. That said, 25 minutes is awfully long, a 15 minute roast sold more than suffice.

Re: Yemen quality declining?

I think that both Yemens from this year are poor quality. Roasting these beans has been a challenge for my HotTop B and I threw out the first 6 batches. I have never done this before. I finally was able to succeed in roasting by pushing ...

Re: Roasting woes with Yemen Mokha Ismaili

... had enough acidity to be drinkable, but was still mellow, and it did have a faint wild coffee flavor. And best of all I now know how to roast the Yemeni micro-lots, which were languishing in my storage drawer because I was afraid of ruining them. Thanks again, everyone!

Re: Yemen quality declining?

... because they had a flavor profile they were after and it varied from year to year. Also given the tremendous upheavels with the militants in Yemen it is lucky Tom can even get beans out of that place.

Just as a point of etiquette, is it more normal to post roasting questions about specific beans in the roaster type forums? If so, I will post such things there in the future! Thanks, everyone, for your help. While there may well be exceptions, I would say that, generally speaking, the answer is ye...

Re: Yemen quality declining?

Coffee can change in quality from season to season. This can be good or bad depending on what flavor profiles you like. We would suggest taking a look at the flavor notes in the review. These will give you a good idea as to what has changed in the taste of the coffee.
