Re: 2 Year Old Green Beans

... thawing and roasting ever since. I can't honestly claim to recall just what that lot used to taste like, but this cup is a nice example of a Yemen, more broody than fruity, and honestly I think the chief problem I can find is that I let it brush up against the fringes of second crack when ...

India Tree-Dried -Mallali Estate Amrita ?

... anything mentioned in the description of how the roast appears, I took the roast till I heard no more first crack. I found photo of some roasted Yemen that description said roasted uneven but the taste was good. The Honduras Groupo de Comayagua I roasted just before looks nice and very even, ...

Re: Moka java blends

Thanks guys. Just the thoughts I was hoping for. And I do have some of your Yemen's on hand, as well as the Sulawesi to try in addition to the Java.

Re: Moka java blends

... the top. The proportions can vary from about equal amounts to as little as 1/4 or maybe even 1/5 of the livelier coffee. The latter are typically Yemens, but many Ethiopia DP lots work well, and even some wet-processed lots with plenty of fruitiness. For the base I've found a wide range of things ...

Re: Moka java blends

Hey Joe Thanks for the question. Mokha Java blends are traditionally made up of coffees from Yemen (Mokha) and coffees from Java. Take a look to see what we have from Yemen right now and mix that with your Java country. The Hawaiian could be good too but it would be very ...

Re: Yemen Mokha Sharasi roasted in Behmor 1600 Plus

Thanks again! Reading this has opened my eyes a little more about coffee roasting with the Behmor. As a new roaster, I thought of increasing the charge weight (e.g., to 3/4 pound from 1/2 pound) as a way to end up with more roasted beans, and decreasing the charge weight (e.g., to 3/4 pound from 1 p...

Re: Yemen Mokha Sharasi roasted in Behmor 1600 Plus

I'm not sure if if I wasn't clear or if this had less to do with one thing I said than... anyway. Roasting the Sharasi, or other Yemens or Ethiopia DP lots, etc., at P1 for a ½ lb batch can be perfectly valid, and in at least one case I can think of made a much better cup than ½ lb with ...

Re: Yemen Mokha Sharasi roasted in Behmor 1600 Plus

Chocolate comes and goes. I honestly don't often get a "whoa, chocolate!" reaction, and when I do I think that surprise is always a large part of it. Vastly more common is a hint or even a strong suggestion of chocolate taste, and most common is a richness or thickness in the cup that is c...

Re: Yemen Mokha Sharasi roasted in Behmor 1600 Plus

Hey Martin, I just re-read your suggestion here, and found some other posts about roasting the Mokhas. I realize now you were referring to using a P1 "kickstart" with P3, not with P1. That makes more sense to me - there would really be no point in using the kickstart with a P1 roast, at le...

Re: Yemen Mokha Sharasi roasted in Behmor 1600 Plus

Hi Martin, Thanks for the reply. No, I didn't weigh the escapee or the porcupines, so that could account for up to half a percent weight loss. I usually roast 3/4 pound on P1, except for the Africans I have tried, and this Sharasi. But with a stepped temperature profile like P3, it seemed important ...
