    PNG Kinjibi

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Roasted yesterday to CS 8-9. *
    A slow S-curve climb to FC at 11 min (195deg).
    Pulled at the very first snap of SC at 15 min (212deg). *there really was only 1 single snap...maybe 2.

    This caught me by surprise. *I wasnt expecting SC till at least 215, but it was my first roast. *Next time Ill pull it at 14 min and about 208.

    Day 1 - through the plunger and syphon. *

    plunger was clean and bright with no overly distinguishing features. *very pleasant and easy to drink.
    the syphon wasnt overly impressive at this point. but it was only 24hrs post roast.

    anyone have any experience with this one? *profiles? brew methods?

    cheers,

    sd

    Your roast looks pretty good to me "sd".... 8-)

    Probably the only difference between yours and mine is that I take it a little slower to reach Rolling FC, probably 13-13:30 minutes and pull it before SC snaps start at around the same roast colour for a total roast duration of about 18:30-19:00 minutes and then immediately cool.

    Tend to leave these rest for 4-5 days before cracking open the bag but thats just me. A good idea is to start sampling almost immediately as youll then find where the sweet spot is for you. Ive tried brewing in all the usual ways but I guess using the AeroPress or a Double Ristretto would be my personal favourites. Another great PNG bean for sure :)....

    Day 5 (Proud of myself. Havent touched it in 4 days)

    The smell off the grinder is great. *A bright and quite sweet (front palate) flat white. *medium body. *maybe some kind of nuttiness and caramel as well. *very good bean, and this was one of my better roast profiles too.

    Smokeydeck - since youre drinking it with milk; give a single origin blend a go. Take one just shy of second and the other into second.

    Restrain from sampling for a bit and then blend 50/50 (initially, you might find a better ratio).

    The darker roast gives it the punch through the milk choccy/whatever-the-cofferati-call-it flavour and the lighter ones give that unique PNG taste. This is one of my on-hand standbys here... The nice thing about this is I can make an espresso with the lighter beans and enjoy that immensely. When I take this blend to work (pre-blended, at home I blend on demand, as it were..) - espressos from the blend are almost as good.

    Give it a go!

    Cheers
