    Your results replicate my impressions using this sort of profile (a while ago) and is also why I've gone back to the Seattle Dip.
    End results are much more consistent in the cup; but one has to experiment, I believe, to ensure that what one is doing still satisfies the final criteria of taste.

    Ditto re: your weekend too mate...

    Too true - never give up on testing! There’s always an exception to the rule somewhere
    True of this moment - I’ve never actually roasted while the snow is falling! Another dynamic to add to my knowledge-base

        • Well, if anyone on CS knows anything about roasting with a blizzard raging outside, you would mate...

          • Yemen Ismaili with Indonesian Sulawesi Blue and India El. Hills 'AA'

            Time for some more Yemeni goodness...

            So far, the tastiest results in the cup are associated with a more gentle profile for these little gems, so have gone back to the original. Even though this isn't a straight S.O. Yemeni batch, very little of its impact is lost when combined with the other beans in this blend. Overall, a very satisfying outcome...

            Took to the very edge of the commencement of 2nd-Crack, just as voluminous clouds of blue smoke started to exhaust from the Corretto, and then immediately dumped and cooled. Wonderful aroma coming from the cooler during this stage of the roast.

            Also roasted an Ethiopian blend a little while back and have included the blend details and profile chart for these too. Produced a wonderfully sweet coffee with touches of stone fruit, mild acidity, loads of mouthfeel and a very extended dark cocoa finish. Terrific beans, these...

                        • Yeah and don't forget the barefoot 10km walk through 2m of snow at -30C to school, uphill *both* ways, on the days we were lucky enough to get off from the mill and were allowed to go to school!

                          Heck, even our professional football (Yes soccer!) team early on learned to play in the snow. In their season opening home game of their very first season here (Played in an open stadium.) they played in -5C temps with a -15C wind chill and a snowstorm that dropped 15cm of the white stuff.
