    Leftover greens - surprise gold!

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Had the last bits of 3 different green bean lots, and CBF roasting separately so just chucked them all in the roaster to see what would happen - pleasantly surprised by the results with a great coffee for latte and aeropress!

    180gm Colombian Volcan Galeras Especial
    180gm Peru Ceja de Selva AAA
    120gm Aceh Danau Laut Tawar

    Roasting on a Behmor - P2, B, 1lb, stopped at 18m (2 mins short)

    Wasn't a massive fan of the Aceh, but the other two were good as single origin, but this blend is really nice - very smooth, full bodied, loving it! Goes to show it's always worth trying things out, you never know what you might uncover

    It's amazing how "leftover bends" come out at times.

    I have had some great coffees using bag dregs.

    I'll be roasting some bag dregs in a few weeks myself!

    It's a bit of a lottery, but a fun tasty one.

    I'm in the process of taking 2 single origins (Costa Rican & Sulawesi) and trying different ratios. First roast 50/50 just settling for a few days.

    I love hearing about the serendipitous roasts! My friend and I used to split on our orders, and would pool the random leftovers into the "Month End Blend".

    Some of it was so popular we sold it at work!
