    Re: Tanzania AA

    Just had a shot this morning;

    05/05 Sweet rose and smokey ?tobacco? smell. Mid body. Mostly side of the tongue. Dark bitter chocolate and wine taste. Finishes with sharp but light pepper acid.

    It had been resting for 8 days. From memory I liked it younger.
    Not my favourite bean. But not bad at all.

    Like other AAs or As I have found it hits FC a couple of degrees earlier. Also requires less heat energy between FC and SC.

    Attached roast chart.

    Finally did some more roasts of the Tanzanian .
    Using the Gene Cafe.
    1st Roast
    150 4min
    200 6.5 FC at 13.5
    230 9 RFC at 14
    240 11 - to 245 at 14
    245 12 Rec. Droping beans at 16.5
    248 13 Cooled with Fan.
    My roast showewd a lack in sweetness but roast looked great
    Believe that a roast prier to Sc will show a better Flavour

    Re: Tanzania AA

    Ive been putting some of this through the popper lately as my first foray into home roasting, so roasting times probably wouldnt be of much help to you guys using genes and such

    but for the record (approx)

    ~3.5 min to FC, stopping the roast at around 5 min

    tried it every day after the roast, first 3 days it tasted really flat and I was afraid id botched it

    after 5 days I noticed some really pleasant citrus tones (thats all I could pick up), reminded me of a nicaraguan bean

    Just testing out my new 1200g Super Corretto roaster last night on some Tanzanian, I got past first crack but being covered in I could not see the beans and pulled the roast a bit early not wanting to overdo it.
    They came out CS7--I ground some for plunger this morning and the dry aroma had amazing citrus/nutty notes. Made a plunger and it had a lovely subtle citrus acidity, very smooth a total contrast to when I have used espresso roasts in the plunger. Ive got 1kg left so lots of plunger and filter coffee this week!!!
