  • Looking for some information

    Ive just taken delivery of a coffeesnobs sample pack of beans and would like some feedback on what to expect from them and maybe even some roasting advice.  The beans are:
    Ethiopian Gambella Naturals
    Brazil Pulped Natural - have already roasted and the Jury is out
    Malawi AA
    Uganda Busamaga AA
    The coffee flavour of choice for my family is something like the DiBella (Melb/Qld roastery) ModenaBlend (exotic sweet fruits, thick syrupy feel then lingering caramel and honey undertones) or the FeliciBlend (full bodied, sweet rich flavour with lingering dark choc etc).
    So any advice would be of help.
    Thanks

    gambella is a pretty interesting bean and has some of the characteristics you have described. It doesnt need to be roasted very dark, also dont stress too much when it roasts uneven. You may struggle to replicate the roasts Dibella they have many more tools and r+d at their disposal. My tip is to enjoy your coffee for its variety rather then trying to nail down a specific taste. In time you will learn what coffees/roast depths you like.

      Just go for it ...!!!!

      Your going to make mistakes and at the same time be excited by the adventure.

      After 30-40 roasts youll have it nailed.

        I agree with hotshod, just roast your beans and give them the taste test, trying to blend to a specific taste as a novice roaster will only confuse you. Try single origins you will be surprised at the taste experiences you will discover as you progress along the roasting journey, Ive just clocked up 310 roasts on my Corretto and still discovering new roast levels and different brewing methods.
        Enjoy the journey
