What's in Your Roaster This Week?
MichaelK
The last 3 days:

Nicaragua Acopio Suyatal
El Salvador Finca Siberia Bourbon
Sumatra Pak Lintong Joner

Recently did some Ethiopian Sidama Deri Kochoha which proved to be a great SO espresso and a Rwandan Jomba Vunga which was also a nice full bodied cup.

I have purchased 5 kg of Sumatra Wahana Natural

Have roasted my first lot just the other day
It's smells of fermented wine but tastes quite nice @ 5 days post roast

Still needs a a few more days rest

ah ginny, I'm so jealous you have a stash of Burundi. I had a Kirinzi Maruri Hill in the summer and it was fantabulous. I would pay big $$ for more of that.

For my taste buds, just at first pop into SC was perfect. Gave some to my neighbor at his July 4 bbq and the next day he is spending a small fortune buying a roaster, beans, et. al.! I was thrilled to have another convert, but I was more sad (really sad) when I could not find any more. I waited too long, I reckon. urgh....but hey, that's the reason we keep on roasting, I s'pose Grin

something else will take its place.... I hope it's the El Salvador Finca Siberia Bourbon or the Sumatra Lake Toba #19 screen I roasted today...only resting time will tell

Michele:

yeah the Burundi is a fabulous coffee. If I find more I will send you some.
I am going into my basement in the morning to check my coffee stash.

how much coffee do you keep on hand?

sounds like you and I like about the same roast. you really have sent your neighbor on an endless journey...

ginny, so sorry for my delay. work took way too much control of my free time last week. thank you for the nice Burundi thoughts ...

re my stash: I have about 13 pounds on hand today, and that's a kind of high point. I get nervous with 4-5 pounds left, but since my source is SM, and I'm only 2 days away (Las Vegas), I can be a little sloppy / lazy. Also, I cannot simply window shop, so when I hit the website, I'm gonna order....and I gotta keep a handle on the spend too :-) I don't let beans age too many months - 6 max, well, mostly, roflol.

what about your basement shelves?

ps my El Salvador was very, very nice. I'm gonna try to repeat that. I'm happy to have another pound on hand and may order another couple.

I'm not usually much for Brazil, or many SA origins, but I just roasted 1/2 pound of Brasil Fazenda. I am extremely pleased with this one. Took it to Full City just at this side of SC. I don't usually do that so well, but wowThumbsUp. The garage smells like chocolate. I hope the flavors prove me out on this one. I

I've been roasting 8 oz batches of Mexico Altura Chiapas El Triunfo Organic, Fair Trade to a Full City+ (nice sheen) with great success. It's great on its own but I also blend 50-50 with Sumatra Mandheling GR1 DP OFT for scrumptious brew.

roasted .5lb of Guat peaberry I bought at Birdrock Roasters in San Diego a while ago last night. Only had about 12 hours rest and it is already really good. Can't wait to taste it in a couple days. Also a lb. of Yemen that I bought from my local roaster a while back. That one needs a couple days rest as well but will be tasty too.

I added a switch to a WB Popper I to turn the heat off. The dimmer I got is rated at 600W, so I didn't put it in. Soup can on the top, analog thermometer through the can into the RC.

93 grams SM Ethiopian Sidamo left over from old bag.
.. 7 minutes RT ... cleared FC .. BMT 450°, but I suspect that is reading 20-25 high. Random heat off times.
2 1/2 minutes to drop BMT down to 150 after turning off the heat.

I'm not used to the chaff .. I usually use my HotTop.

This evening I'm roasting E. Yirgacheffe Kebel Aricha, Yemen Mocha Harazi (my last batchShock) and Selva Negra from Javavino.

BTW, I really like the Selva Negra; it's a privately owned estate by the owners of JavaVino, you've possibly never seen so many different bean sizes in one lot of coffee! Screen? What's a screen?

Doesn't happen often, but in the roaster yesterday was a "house blend;" small handfuls of beans that wouldn't amount to a roast by themselves.

This generally runs from excellent through just OK. This batch turned out quite good. Today I'll be roasting one of my favorites - Ethiopian Harrar!
