    Indian Mysore Nuggets A Grade

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Roasted my test batch on Monday, just cupped it this morning. Roasted to City, just on the verge of 2nd crack.

    First impression: This one is a bit of a kicker. Light floral aromatics and medium-heavy acidity. Hints of cardamom with cranberry and Granny Smith apple flavours dominate. The finish is long and crisp.

    Ill see how a darker roast goes with this one.

    Mate,

    Sorry to correct you but there is no Mysore Nuggets A grade. The Mysore nuggest is basically prepared from an Arabica Parchment A. Here 90% of the beans have to be above Screen 19 whereas for the Parchment A 90% has to be above screen 17!

    I was wondering that too - I actually went and checked my bag to see if it was indeed My sore nuggets A grade. It was.

    Re: Indian Mysore Nuggets A Grade

    ...and my nuggets are A grade ones (that taste great).

    ;)

    Go figure.
    :)

    I can only guess that because the supplier prepared the from an Arabica Parchment A that they ware labled A grade. Makes sense to me.

    Great coffee too!

    Re: Indian Mysore Nuggets A Grade

    Any roasting profiles we should be specifically aiming for?

    Nunu, have you gone in to 2nd crack with this one? How was it?

    Re: Indian Mysore Nuggets A Grade

    I had completely forgotten about posting a subsequent cupping. Ill blame work, as last march I was still easing into a new job.

    Since then, Ive tried it into rolling 2nd and its just as nice, albeit not near as intense. As a SO blend it is dynamite. This only applies if youre a fan of bright, floral and fruity coffee.

    Re: Indian Mysore Nuggets A Grade

    My nuggets taste good too :P. But what makes them sore is not understanding all the lingo...

    Forgive my ignorance ::), but what is "rolling second" and what is "roasting to City"? :-?

    Cheers,
    MB (showing my Newbieness) ::)

    Re: Indian Mysore Nuggets A Grade

    Rolling second crack is when you continue far enough into 2nd crack that the snaps are coming quickly, without gaps between snaps.

    City is the level of roast.

    See http://www.sweetmarias.com/roasted.pict-guide.html

    I find the american terminology a bit confusing, so I tend to use a light /medium/ dark terminology myself.

    Re: Indian Mysore Nuggets A Grade

    Oh my cracking nuggets ::)

    I roasted My Sore Nuggets and mixed them with the coffee I cant seem to find any better of, Mount Tambourine Arabica in a 50/50 mix, and wow, wow, wow (a 3 wow factor out of 3), what a blend, very nice indeed.

    Sweet without being sickly sweet, good crema, floral nose with a hint of licorice on the front of the palate, then hints of dark chocolate to the finish.

    Will be brewing many more of this mix! :P

    Re: Indian Mysore Nuggets A Grade

    ...I love this bean!
    I found it very easy to roast- did some reading here and on coffeereview.com and sweetmarias- and went for a medium-light roast: 1st C @ 200c/12min, pulled @ 214/17min- about 4/5 of the distance b/w 1stC & 2ndC.
    The result was bright and fruity at the front of the palette with some citrusy tang, good acidity & body with a nice creamy mouth feel and a really sweet, choc and raisen finish...fruit cake comes to mind.
    This did it for my palette, I didnt even try another profile I loved it so much!
    One of my (many) favorite beans...and only 500g left...
    Cheers, Anthony

    Re: Indian Mysore Nuggets A Grade

    Made an espresso and latte of this one 4 day post roast... Roasted mine to about 15 seconds after hearing the first snaps of SC. Crema was thick and didnt subside at all. Tried the espresso, now I dont drink espressos so I wont try to describe the taste. All I can say is there wasnt any hint of acidity at all, but in the latte, it was simply NICE!! I was thinking of trying out certain beans as part of blends before but with the recent beans that have come on lately which have been GREAT as SO, the blend experiment will have to wait yet.
