    Ethiopia sidamo guji

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    recently shallow roasted some sidamo, ad was blown away by the citrus present. dropped 2 mins after 1st crack i was a little nervous but the result was amazing! even body and acidity with a nice bite of lime up front.
    gonna try shallow roasting some other Ethiopians this week! excited!
    anyone had any other shallow or lighter roast success?
    cheers

    Hiya Joe,

    How do you brew your coffee mate, with these lighter roasts?

    hey Mal,
    Im a bit of a plunger freak! so lighter roast bring out more characteristics. love it. i do roast darker just not often cos basically i just prefer plunger! when i roast i always do 3 depths at least, just after first crack, just before second crack, and just in to second crack. then cup the three against each other to get an idea of flavor profiles, and characteristic strength. but love hearing other peoples preferences and advice!
    knowledge is power!
    you experimenting?
    cheers
    joe

    Great stuff mate... 8-)

    Yep, I roast a lighter batch now and again, mainly for my Syphon and the AeroPress. Mind you, none of my roasts could really be called dark since most never reach Second Crack(SC). I love to be able to enjoy as much of the intrinsic flavours of the bean as possible; difficult to do if you allow the roast to progress too far into Rolling SC.

    Anyway Joe, happy roasting and brewing, sounds like youre having a ball... ;D :D ;D

    Cheers,
    Mal.
