    Indian Mysore Nuggest Extra Bold

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all,

    Ive had a bit of a play with these ones and havent been able to really strike gold with the roast. Ive had a few goes, light, darker, longer roast but nothing really great in the cup and am wondering what others have had success with?

    Anyone out there able to let me in on the secret of these bold beans? There is of course the chance that Im just not a fan, but I really dont think thats the case - Im a firm believer its user-error, and as my stash is getting low, Im a bit worried that I might not get a chance to have a nice cup if I keep on going my direction.

    Thanks in advance!

    Matthew

    I roasted my only batch so far to a CS9+ in the Gene, and a couple of days later was quite unimpressed.

    So I took them to work and let the other members of the Coffee Club (;D) try them out for a few days.

    Well..., I had two comments (out of 4 members) that these were their favourite beans so far--rich and smooth, both in the Aeropress and the Presso! They must have been good cause there werent any left for me to bring home and try again.

    Next roast Ill make sure I keep some back.

    I did my first batch in the Gene also and found them the most even roast ive had so far. Extra bold is right! Huuuuge nuggets.

    I cracked them open 4 days post roast for the guys at work to try. Everyone was kinda "Meh" about them (but they also only drink our work blend and have never tried SOs), but i had one as a double ristretto flat white and thought they had a really nice flavour. Ive still got 100g or so that are now 7 days post roast, so ill have one this arvo and comment again.

    My first batch roasted last weekend to about 30 sec into second crack has come out too light for espresso. Will give the next batch a little longer & see how it goes. I dont feel like its far off though.

    After a few days drinking as double ristretto i really like it. Reminds me of the Peru, where it has a good smooth taste and seems like a good base for a blend.

    No "wild" flavours, but rich and smooth.

    Im with you depecid, I now quite like this one. Ive kept it light @ CS9, and really like it in the aeropress with milk. The acidity, which I didnt really like black, helps it cut through nicely.
    Funny you say Peru, Ive not found them to be similar however thats my wifes favorite, and this one is quickly coming up through the ranks so there must be some similarities there - rich and smooth.

    Does anyone else find that this one needs to be ground much finer than most other beans for espresso? Around the usual starting point for grind on my major, the shot just poured out, finer needed. Same again, and again until I was right down just above what I grind to for turkish!

    After finding an Ethiopian recently that needed to be ground much courser than normal, Im starting to realise the induvuadiility of each bean!

    A mild, sweet bean. Nice taste, but I like my beans a bit more funky, earthy.

    I wasnt overly impressed by this one in the machine but lightly roasted some for a friend to use in the plunger and it was fantastic. REALLY smooth. Everyone that tried it commented on how sweet and smooth it was.

    Still got some of this from August 2010 Beanbay. Thought Id post my results for the record.

    Roasted 250g in the Gene as follows:
    - Gene ambient temp reading 24c
    - start temp 234c, hit @ 8:04
    - increase temp 237c @ 12:03
    - drop temp 234c @ 14:13
    - drop temp 230 @ 15:07
    - FC 12:45
    - RFC 13:35
    - pulled @ 17:09

    In the cup:
    day 4: great pours, low acidity, cocoa flavor, smooth leathery mouth feel, peppery finish was a nice very pleasant surprise.
    Aroma off the grind:
    dark cocoa with some spice. very rich intoxicating aroma.

    Cuts through milk OK.

    Javabeen.
