    Ethiopia Oromia Coop Limu

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I dont post to much in this area but must add that i have roasted a batch of this Ethiopia bean and i've have found it to be fantastic. Although the body doesn't stand out as much in a milk based drink it is complemented by the overall smoothness of the coffee. Very easy to drink as milk based and espresso. I have tried this each day since roasting and i have found its improved each day. Its been 5 days post roast. Very easy to roast also.

    Regards,

    Chris

    I just came home from basketball with the intention of putting more comments on here regarding this bean. I came home from work this afternoon and had yet another nice couple of coffees with this bean. I had it as an espresso and wanted to test as a latte. I must admit post roast to this day i much prefer it as an espresso. With the milk based drink this afternoon although it was nice however it did lack the body i somewhat hoped to get from it through the milk.

    That aside it was smooth and had a really nice feel in the mouth which is one of my main aims when choosing the right coffees. So that i feel i achieved in this roast.

    Cheers

    Chris

    Chokkidog...Im surprised it made it till today, most of mine are gone by day 8....I had a laugh

    Ps.. Roasting this one again this week and im looking to do a rather light roast and one at the other end of the chart being a little darker than the first one ive done just to see what can be achieved.

    The aroma off the grinder is amazing. It fills the house with wonderful floral aromas for quite some time. Mid body espresso, nice balanced acidity, quite a bit of cherry as wiffle pointed out. Worked well in the aeropress as well. Excited about this one.

    Had this one in the grinder at the Snobbery a few times in the last couple of weeks and yep, it's a stunner.

    Sadly not much left but we have already put our name down for some more next season.
