    Costa Rica Dota Tarrazu Vara Blanca

    Roasted 300g light roast just into vigorous first crack dumped into the cooler at 9min.
    In the Clever dripper today--30g to 400g water steeped for 1m45sec.
    The dry aroma was stunning, huge floral notes filled the room.
    In the cup it had a lovely clean citrus acidity, nice clean juicy mouthfeel and delicate citrus flavour notes.
    Killer filter coffee, you have found another gem Andy

    that sounds great.. I just roasted mine yesterday, unfortunately I didn't record the weight, time or anything. I roasted on P4 in the Behmor though, and hit cool once rolling first crack was well established. I have lost my card so I can't give you a colour number either. Anyway, I'm not really getting the citrus florals that are mentioned in your post or the notes for the bean, I'm getting a very Toblerone like aroma of the beans as they're resting, honey-cocoa, unusual and hard to explain, definitely unique as far as my nose can tell. It smells amazing - can't wait to cup it, the mission will be to get that aroma translating into the pour - a difficult task with my lever machine ha ha ha

    Hey Greenman. I saw your 30g to 400g ratio - I've been using a 1:4 ratio so 30g to 120g of water which makes for more of espresso hit (so that I can add milk). Do you every play with the strength ratios?

    Hi AlanGl
    7.5g per 100g water is the usual dosage for pourover, sometimes I updose with naturals to get an extra flavour hit, but generally I get good results with the 7.5/100 ratio. There are no rigid rules, experimentation is what it's all about.
    Enjoy
