  • We're kind of hoeing through the Shakisso Estate blend so time for another roast...

    Had enough Yemen left to combine with the Triple Sort Mandheling so decided to go with that.
    Used a similar length roast profile to the last batch, stopped just on 220C then dumped and immediately cooled. Our youngest son came home for lunch just as I was finishing up and he reckons the whole street smelled of freshly roasted coffee as soon as he opened the car door. Didn't think it dissipated quite that far but there you go...

    Copies of the Roast Profile and Post-Roast photos attached...

    Batch Details:
    Yemen Ismaili - 500g
    Sumatra Mandheling Triple Sort - 250g
    Roasted Weight - 634g
    Weight Loss - 15.47%

        Would have to be my favourite combo and worth the wait between access to new crops of the Yemen. Will really savour this one...

        This one for manual brewing Leroy?

    • Well, the Ismaili blend from the last roast batch is nearly gone so had to get busy with another roast...

      Sticking with another Ethiopian based blend, which are pretty much the staple around here.
      Blended with some very sweet and fruity Guatemala Jacaltenango beans and the PNG Goroka which contribute a very smooth and velvety mouthfeel.
      Took to the cusp of 2nd-Crack with a slightly faster than usual profile and then immediately dumped into the cooler.
      Wonderful aromas coming from the cooler again bodes well for a very nice cuppa ahead.

      Ethiopia Gambella Naturals - 350g
      PNG Goroka 'A' - 250g

      • I think this might be the first time I’ve roasted a Mexican coffee at home. This is a washed FTO coffee from the GRAPOS co-op in Chiapas. It looks to have roasted quite nicely so I’m looking forward to trying it.

        • Time for another Shakisso hit...

          No, I'm not addicted to it, just have to have more and more.
          Same blend as before, changed proportions just a little though.
          60% of the Shakisso this time, the rest is Brazil Pulped Natural...

          Profile was pushed just a little more too but completed at the same finish point of ~220C.
          Just to heighten the fruitiness a little more but still should be plenty of dark chocolate to go around.
          As always, loved the wonderful aroma coming off the cooler when dumped and cooled; drooling just thinking about it...

          Blend details with roast profile and post-roast photos below as per normal.

            Cracked this one open today and once again, is an absolute beauty.
            Tried as an Espresso, a Brazen brew, a Moka Pot brew and a Pour Over...
            All are wonderful. This is such a flexible Ethiopian bean, no matter how you brew it, the results in the cup are wonderful . The Brazil bean adds some really enjoyable and creamy texture to the mix too which seems to ensure that the entire palate is saturated in goodness.
            Just impossible to stop at one cup...

            Mal.

              I’m loving this blend as well. I’ll be roasting another batch very soon

          • Roaster fixed now, so did a cheeky two batch roast session with a Colombian. Went well! One for filter, one for espresso, just to mix it up.

            And I experimented and purposely tried to extend the so-called "maillard phase" (140-160°C), lowering the heat a bit, ended up working well in the first roast. The second batch was a bigger batch so it probably slowed a little too much, but I'll know for next time. Maybe lower the heat a bit later, or lower the batch size to the usual.

            Interested to see the taste result!
