Leftover greens - surprise gold!
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!
Call mine the ”Baggin’s Blend” (all the different beans from Bag End )
Biggest problems with these winning blends is the inabilty to ever reproduce them!
Anyone here ever thought that that may be the underlying basis of the so called award winning roast exclusively supplied via a certain Australian Grocery Chain, who use it as a loss leader?
