    Mexican El Malinal Typica

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Mexican El Malinal Typical, an awesome bean by itself. Thought I had a nice blend for our house then tried this as a single origin at CS8 and my wife has gone ga ga about it! Have bought more and more and more... :)

    How deep can you take the roast on this one? Does it roast well to say CS10? Or, is it better as an 8 or 9?

    Andys guide in beanbay suggests going to CS10. Ive recently roasted a small batch which are on the light side of CS9 and its not really doing it for me thus far as a latte (need to fiddle with grind though).

    Hi BoS,
    This is what I thought may be the case. If you roast some to a CS10 l would love to know what you think of it. Really I want to know how well the flavours come through the milk as well as whether by taking it to CS10 any of the acidity is softened a little. I will probably end up getting a bag anyway.

    Since posting have taken batches to CS9 and 10 with improvement all the way and since taking possession of a new BES900 the bean is producing extremely good milk based coffee with excellent acidity and chocolate notes...

    Yeah... I still think that at CS10 this bean really shines.

    It also seems to like a longer roast, I think Ill put that down to high altitude and high density but either way dragging your roast curve out a little flatter really seems to get the balance of acidity/sweetness/cocoa just right.

    A really amazing coffee when you nail the roast.

    Keep playing, you will know when your roast style matches the bean.

    I think that this will definitely be my next order then. My south american blend needs just a little something........I dont know what that is, I just know that it does. Maybe it is a bit of Mexican.

    My current batch are impressing me a little more with a slightly coarser grind than I started with. Certainly wont be chucking them. Just roasted another small batch (from cold start) in the i-coffee...took quite a bit longer to first crack and I hit the cooling cycle when rolling first crack was reached. Stretched roast out to 20 mins, but I think Im still a little short of CS10.

    Hi BOS,
    Nice one. I will be super keen to see how they turn out.....I will definately try this method out when I get home. Although, I am yet to understand how a roast of a bean gets better with slowing it down (something to do with the moisture and sugars????) I will take Andys word for it. Be sure to post when you have your first cup of this batch.
