Costa Rica Cafe Hermosa
Has anyone else been enjoying this bean? I roasted 200g of it last week and then forgot I had it sitting in the cupboard. Tried it today at day 8 and it is absolutely gorgeous in a FW and pretty good in an espresso as well.
In the FW it is smooth and velvety, and a lovely sweetness early on the palette. I am afraid I am not great at picking/describing all the flavours but would love to hear others feedback on this bean.
When I roasted it I had made the comment that I may have gone a tad light with it, but it just goes to show to always taste. I went with a basic profile, P1 all the way (Behmor), with FC at 10.55 and then pulled it at 13.00. Nice and easy to roast as well with a very distinctive and strong FC. I have just put another 400g in the behmor today to make sure I have plenty on hand for next week.
thanks for the post been pondering what other beans to get and was previously recommended this bean.
Cafe Hermosa is an marvelous bean, really enjoying it. Have been doing roasts with 1 kg Hermosa as a base and blended with a small combinations of Indo Sumatran, Rwanda Nyungwe and PNF Wahgi.
yep, I usually go for Ethiopian beans and not much else, my personal preference. However when I first tasted this I was totally WOW'd. I love it. I love it as much as my fav Ethiopian beans! Definitely smooth, velvety as you say, sweetness that reminds me of caramel. Definitely worth grabbing this bean, it's amazing. I think my standard for it was a P3 in the Behmor. I'll have to buy some this week to remind myself ha ha ha.
