    kenya blend

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    hey all,
    really new to the blend game, but been playing heaps and came up with this so far. used 45% kenya AA as a character to contrast 55% santos. nice cherry flav with milk but quite harsh black, though maybe a temor? any ideas?

    Hi Joe, did you roast them together? Probably 20% Kenyan would have given a better result.
    A good way to experiment with blends is to roast a few varieties of beans separately and post-blend them until you find a ratio that suits your taste.
    What beans have you got to choose from................

    Re: kenya blend

    Im just drinking a 3 bean pre-roast blend taken just into second crack:--
    Brazil Cafenzinho 50%
    PNG Gouno Highlands 30%
    Ethiopian Yirgachef 20%
    after 7 days it made the most amazing espresso, so viscous, rich choc/cocoa/fruit from the Yirg. Just as good in the flat whites this morning, alas there is only 150g left, definitely on my repeat list.

    Re: kenya blend

    i was a bit cautious bout pre roast blending due to the different roast requirements of each bean but i may have to try that next. your blend sounds tasty might supplement the yirgy for harar though got masses of the stuff kickin round
