  • Red Sea Blend

    I remember getting some spectacularly awful roasts with this last year, then nailing them and getting incredible shots, then running out very short after. Andy, boy do I wish that you would grab us some of this. What ... you read my mind?! Incredible!

    Cheers,

    Luca

      Re: Red Sea Blend

      Hey Wushoes,

      After I posted this, I remembered that there was a thread in the cupping room, so I dug that up:

      http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?num=1146616958/3#3

      The beans are quite small, so you might want to take whatever ramp youve got happening and slow it down a touch. It might be tricky to judge the finishing time on this one because there will be quite a lot of chaff, which might make it seem smoky.

      Like I said in the cupping room, this is a blend that really does need to be allowed to sit and degas in peace for a while.

      Cheers,

      Luca

        Partly based on your recommendation Luca I went back for seconds and picked up a kilo plus some of the Rwanda

          Whoops; dont get me wrong, I dont know anything about the Rwandan coffee, Id just like to try some. My curiosity has been piqued by the PEARL project, which is basically fair trade ideology, but actually making a difference. Instead of sitting back, certifying stuff and creating a brand that people can use to justify relatively huge markups over here, PEARL actually got their hands dirty and helped set things up on the ground

          As for the Red Sea blend, yeah, Im looking forward to it! You do have to keep an eye on it while youre roasting, though.

          Cheers,

          Luca

              Alan Frew has some positive comments on Rwanda in his
              Feb newsletter.

              I went back to beanbay and got some. That and Red Sea blend.
              Should be interesting.

                Yep that and Andys tasting notes are the reason behind my second dip at the Rwanda.
