peveleth, It is better if you start a post in the forum with your question. These shouts go away in time.

For Gene Cafe Roasters I have an older Gene Cafe Roaster. Temp fluctuates probably showing age. Question: For recent owners of the newer Gene Cafe Roaster, your opinions?

Morning Ed, I haven't done any green coffee hoarding yet but am hoping the supplies don't end up like the toilet paper isles!

Mexican SHG Pluma Oaxaca 'don Eduardo'
seedlings
Everyone who picked up some of this coffee, post what you think here. I just roasted a batch 2 hours ago.

Full City (no snaps of second crack)
1C ~13 min
Pulled at 16:20, 430F

Bean munch aw, who am I kidding? The bean munch almost never gives me any insight. I know there are many out there who can pop a fresh roasted bean in their mouth, chew on it a little, and know weather or not they nailed the roast. I just haven't graduated there.

Dry grounds smell good, nothing fancy.

Drip brew.
Wet grounds remind me of powdered hot cocoa, and smelled enticing, much better than I anticipated with 2 hours 'rest'.

Hot cup needs rest. Lightly sweet. Smells a little chocolaty, but I can't really taste it. Might be some berry fruit way, way in the background. Nothing jumps out at me, but there's also nothing undesirable. Pleasant lingering aftertaste. Medium body.

Cool cup brings a little nuttiness, like almond, maybe. Flavors intensify a bit, but they're still vague to me. Coffee gives a sensation to the very center of my tongue that I can't explain.

Tomorrow morning's vac pot brew will be much more telling.

Vac pot this morning, 12 hours rest is sweet, medium body, lingering buttery (creamy?) finish. Maybe leaning vanilla instead of chocolate to me. Still exploring.

I've never had good Kona coffee (only a preground tourist sample that a friend brought back once), but I've read a few places where this coffee resembles Kona.

Today it's chewy, syrupy, heavy body with fudge notes, especially as the cup cools.

Can't get enough!

Pete, I've wondered if your attractively uneven cast iron method, with some light, some medium and some dark roast beans might really show off the chocolates.
Hapy vacation!

And, tarapup, you're most welcome! Let us know how the Behmor takes these.

due to a swift and trusty steed the Postal type person gladly delivered my greens that Seedlings was so kind to offer to us lesser human beings. I roasted nearly a half pound, for myself of course, in my trusty GCSC highly modified homebuild by a REDNECK roaster to a nice rolling second crack, no times I roast by color and smoke densitiy.
No coffee cupper as I have said before some things I like some I don't this bean I wish I had of purchased more of, the flavor is nicely Chocolate from a Dark Chocolate stright from the pot hot as h*&l (my maker has had the Thermostate play with you might say) to Hersey Sweet Chocolate after sitting in the cup for 30 minutes. this in one coffee I would drink Ice Cold on a hot summer day.

NICE JOB AGAIN Chad

I'm really happy that you all are enjoying this one since it was another "trust the sales rep" kind of purchase. It is good coffee.

I just stopped by The Roasterie (www.theroasterie.com) to get some decaf green coffee for my wife. I paid $7.50/lb for the Colombian Pitalito Estates. I've tried the regular version of this coffee (at $4.35/lb a year or so ago) and it is very good... but wow, how the prices have come up! Ouch!

This is why I started getting the big bags. I know many of you are like me, in that you like good coffee, and while we love extraordinary coffee, the prices can get high quick. So I'll continue to offer something every now and again.

Roasted a 12 oz batch to FC, no snaps of 2nd Crack. Rested 48 hrs. Nice cup, moderate chocolate, medium body. Think next time I'll take it just into 2nd Crack and the chocolate should be more pronounced.

I am still learning how to 'taste' coffee. I drink it black, unsweetened.
Roasted to FC+. It was into the 2nd crack when I started cooling. Gave some to a woman who works with me, too.
We both agreed: very creamy, full-bodied, chocolate-y. Very smooth. A lovely cup.
Thanks, Chad. :)

I gotta jump back in here again and say that the flavor in them Mexican La Pluma beans just rocks Chad.
I gave some to my brother and he was just totally blowed away with how the chocolate flavor hangs in till the end of the cup.

WISH I HAD OF GOTTEN my grubby little fingers on more of it.

Roasted my second batch, this time maybe a dozen or so snaps into 2nd crack plus a few more when I hit cool. I might have nailed it this time - deep, rich chocolate galore. Really great coffee. Thanks, Chad.

Plan to roast some more tonight and I'm going to go 10 or 15 seconds into 2C as you did, CD.

Mmm-mmm. Good coffee, good price... it doesn't get much better.

CHAD,

Just got back to this last night. 3 batches: City, Full City (barely) and Full City ++ (30 secs into 2C). Brewed this a.m. with 0 days rest -- the FC++ was just delicious (although made the expected mess in the brewer)! I plan to cup all three head to head Wed or Thurs. We'll see.

Thanks again for offering us this great bean.
