  • African Beans

    I gotta get me some more African beans. I am getting low and really enjoy the rich fruity characters in an espresso. Some Yemen ir Yirga would be good as I havent tried these. Still some Ehtiopian, Kenyian or Zambian are always good.

              Thanks for the heads up Andy, I will be waiting in anticipation as I havent tried a Yirg before. But have been wanting to for some time, due to the amount of CS that rave about it.

              What flavours should I expect from this bean? and what sort of roast profile should I be aiming for?

                I dont agree with all the comments, eg. I think its a pretty forgiving bean to roast, and think it far more tasty than tea!...lol

                  Dont under roast it, just into rolling second crack, pull immediately cool as quick as possible, youll love it.... You can try it a bit darker if you like, as Dennis said I also consider it to be quite forgiving as well ie. performs well all the way up to the point before its burnt........

                      Only if it was as good as the last one... and sadly this lot it is no where near as good.

                      I even re-roasted some of the previous lot to compare back-to-back (just as a sanity check)

                        Well I have nothing to compare as I havent had this one before. (Mind you I have to fight all the other CS to get to it this beanbay) But im sure I will still like this batch (if I manage to get some that is)

                          What bean are you referring to here Andy? The Yirg?


                          thanks,
