    Harrar

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Andy, whatre the standout beans on BrownBay at the moment? Ive got a fondness for the africans - and are you roasting the hararr for blueberries, red cherry, dried fruits or something else?

    cheers,

    J

    (Moved the off topic post)

    "blueberries, red cherry, dried fruits" are all in the same flavour group, you could get any one of those.


    This is a dry processed, wild coffee from the Ethiopian highlands. An earthy treat from the birth place of coffee. A patchy looking roast that produces a huge aroma in the grinder and bright ripe berry flavours with a hint of cocoa in the cup.

    Let me know which berries YOU think they are... different people will have different answers.

    Bugger! I thought the least you could do is give us a blueberry aroma, red cherry acidity, and dried fruit finish! ;D

    Harrar is my nemesis. I am now getting blueberries in the lighter roasts but find it a tricky bean to control in the end stages and it is wreaks havoc on your grinder settings...but well worth the struggle.

    Its that nasty, marmaladey dried fruit finished that my over-sensitive palette hates ;) The blueberries are one of the reasons I love coffee so much - particularly Andys 2007 Hararr.

    ive done two roasts of this now, and both times got almost no cracking.
    :-/
    pulled it when it looked to be about cs9 and started smoking.
    still no cracking though.
    18 minutes all up, with one or two cracks at 12 minutes.

    its a strange one...

    I just dropped one out of the roaster and there was plenty of 1st crack action and 2nd was just starting when they hit the cooling tray.

    Try changing your process a little, maybe you are a bit off one of your "normal" roasts.
