    Panama Boquete Bajo Volcancito

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Roasted this one last week, 4 days after roast very nice herbal flavour, with a medium body. *7 days after roast, still a slightly herbal/tobacco flavour with cocoa aftertaste, *This was roasted to CS 9. *Very happy with this one. *I would recommend it to new roasters as it roasted very evenly and the cracks were easy to hear. *:)

    This bean tastes more chocolatey than chocolate!

    I wasnt impressed with the first couple of batches I roasted of this, for freshly roasted coffee it just tasted wrong to me. Then came the third roast. I stopped the roast a smidgen earlier (at 2nd crcack) and happened to let it rest longer (10 days). From the first cup, its been some of the nicest coffee Ive made in a long while. Ive just roasted my 4th batch and now my expectations are very high. I hope it turns out as nice as the 3rd batch so it wasnt just a fluke!

    Stan, Im very happy with this one too.

    Just got my supply in the post (thanks Andy), and put down a roast in the popper. Only issue I had with the roast was that the rolling first crack and 2nd crack were really close so probably over roasted slightly. Looks like full city roast. Looking forward to trying it once its settled (but knowing me Ill try it after a day or two anyway).

    Sometimes it is a bit hard to identify Second Crack. But the sound is a little softer and there is smoke as an indicator. I havent taken it into Second Crack so I dont know how it will taste - I stopped the roast just on Second Crack. ;)

    For my setup (Hottop with dmm) I have found by far the most reliable way to predict and identify SC is that it is about 22c away from the very first FC or about 18 or 19c away from RFC, and I have found this bean is no execption.

    And for my taste I really like this bean FC 13mins *stopped just *before SC at about 18 mins. *When I have taken this *bean into SC I *have found it to be quite ordinary - (still *good *to give away to begging friends and family*though :))

    I roasted this one to Half way between FC and SC, brewed it in a friends Hario Syphon. Sour note on the front palate seems to be a bit too strong, bit of sweetness comes through but flavour seems way too delicate. I think its mainly because of the roast as its too light.
    Will roast the 2nd batch to just just the start of SC and Ill test it out again.
