Can someone help me for using forced propane burner as my heating element. I rather want to use lpg than electric. Do you think it would work

Thanks Scott. I had actually roasted last Thursday and promptly headed for the west coast Friday. I had asked my lovely wife to drop them off, but she forgot. They're still sitting on the kitchen counter.

Sooooo ... I'm back to the Ohio tundra tomorrow and will do a fresh roast and mail on Thursday.

Can't wait to try 'em out!

An over-sized, supersampler box of Guat-Acatenango Finca La Soledad, FTO Dominican, Ethiopian Yirg and Mexican was handed to me by the local UPS driver today!

This happened just before I was going down to the shop to crank up the roaster for the weeks roasts. I'm glad I didn't make it to my roaster since I'm going to be busy with this for a while.

Thanks Scott for such a generous offering.

BTW, if these taste anything as good as their aroma we're in for some superb holiday coffee this season.

I'm enjoying the Columbian today. Clearly, you were going to have some great coffee either way. Enjoy the holidays. Scott

So, I have a hard time keeping up with my wife. I must be getting old.

She mailed the beans Monday or Tuesday I think. So Scott, you should have them soon.

Hey Jimbo. Your beans came in today. I wasn't able to get yours in the mail until Friday. The holidays are a pretty hectic. And add to that my wife and three boys have all been sick.

Anyway, can't wait to try some of them tomorrow. Thanks for the hints. Let me know if you want one as well.

Hey Scott,

Glad they arrived! Yours showed up at my house today as well. And, unfortunately, I am not there. Looking forward to getting home and trying them out ... Thursday. (Dang job!)

Enjoy. Hints would be good, too.

I'll give you a hint for one. One of the roasts is darker. That one is African.

Keith: got your beans today, they all looked really good. I think the postlady was trying to get to the goodies in the package from the shape it arrived in.

Sumatra, dark and bold, or the last that I had was.

JBM, Jamacia Blue Mountain, hope I guessed it correctly, never had it in home roast.

IMV, I'm taking it that this is an Ethiopian from the size of the beans and the smell and taste,

The beans really look good, a little more oil on the beans then I roast too, I am sitting here sipping on a cup of the IMV as I type this, and I have to say it taste like a well rested cup of Ethiopian, not a Kenyan.

Scott,

Thoroughly enjoyed the first brew of the darker roast this morning. Brewed it up in my Yama Vac pot. Based on the hint you gave, I'm going to say Ethiopian, but the brightness was more subdued than other Ethiopians I have had. And this is a good thing in my book since I do not like particularly bright coffees.

This one seems to me to be an all around, every day kind of coffee ... a go to cup. Mild in intensity. I didn't get a lot of fruit bomb that is often found in Ethiopian. As it cooled i found myself tasting chocolate that was headed toward bittersweet.

Thanks for a very nice coffee.

Ginny, your beans arrived today. I arrived home to a package of 1100 square feet of heavy weight muslin and a much smaller package. I like the smaller one better.

The Burundi smells divine and the other one has my olfactories guessing already as to the origin, but they smell wonderful! I'll wait until tasting before hazarding a guess.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Oh, and my son made of with the pink lemonade sucker. Sigh...

I also received word today the parts for my roaster were shipped today. As soon as I get them installed, I'll run a couple test batches and roast yours up and get them out right away. I think you'll have them for a little new year's eve enjoyment if all goes well.

Good guess. The African bean is a Harrar Longberry. You can peel the top label off to reveal my normal label. I went a little darker than I normally go, so the blueberry were not as evident I suspect.

I've had several cups of each of yours since it arrived, both with a press and my CCD. I've got several things stacked against me guessing your beans, both my inexperience, and a head cold. I was going to say Ethiopian as well, or may Ruwanda for the African. For the American, Brazil maybe? Maybe when my head clears, I will be able to better analyse the flavors.

Enjoying a cuppa Nic :smileycoffee: (not to be confused with St. Nic) from Jim jlyon10, very nicely roasted with nice sweetness. Very clean ThumbsUp roast from I believe a BBQ drum setup. Much appreciated!
best wishes this holiday season,

Scott,

Enjoying the second batch this Christmas morning. The lighter roast, and again a very nice, clean cup. Can't really guess the origin though. so, I'll cheat and look under the label.

As for the two I sent:
Costa Rican Tarrazu - Montes de Oro - one of my all time favorites
Ethiopian Organic Shiliso Sidamo "Maduro"

Merry Christmas.

Jimbo

I have to report on my coffee from randysuch First I got 4 different coffees, 2 roast of a really nice ethiopian, a PNG, a really nice Kenyan. All coffee was wonderful, the PNG was My favorate but all were great. I can say Randy is a skilled roaster, his coffee was the best. This was fun.

Phil (stoneguard), the baby is up early today, so I'm enjoying some of Roast #1 from the Vac Pot:

Beans look Full City+ with a few beans showing tiny oil droplets. They are characterized by slight variations in size, but none are very small or very large.

Dry Grounds smelled like apple juice with faint cedar in the background.

Wet Grounds gave a light floral (honeysuckle?), pear and apple fruitiness.

Hot cup I taste graham cracker, pear, melon, caramelized brown sugar sweetness... kind of tastes like apple cobbler! Good acidity, medium body with lingering gentle finish where a note of....? fresh basil blooming in the garden? Not quite mint, not quite earth.

Cool cup brings heavier baking spices and darkens the overall character.

Excellent cup, great hand at the roaster!

Generally reminds me of a Panama, but it has some spice that might be found in a Kenya. Doesn't taste Indonesian at all. Not Ethiopia, probably not Rwanda, maybe Burundi, probably not south American (except for a possibly Costa). Could be another central besides Panama (except for the spice in the finish). Not El Salvador, not Honduras, maybe Guatemala, maybe Nicaragua... I'm stumped!

Should be sampling Roast #2 after church, and I can't wait!

CHAD

*edit: If I had to guess I'd say Panama or Nicaragua.

Well, I couldn't wait.

Roast #2 is deceiving. Physically it looks darker, no chaff in the crease, almost no oil, but I don't think it's really much darker roast than Full City+(which might mean it's a softer bean). Beans are a little rounder than Roast #1. Vac pot brew:

Dry Grounds- heavy forest earth

Wet grounds- same

Hot cup- low acidity, medium body, earth/forest spice, caramel and faint herbs

Cool cup- brings sweet vanilla bean and a mild finish

Another tasty cup showing off your roasting skills. I'm not going to beat around the bush on this one, instead I'll give my best guest of Papua New Guinea.

What a fun exchange so far... plus I have MORE COFFEE to brew! Thanks a bunch, Phil!
