    Be still my trembling heart, ye gods nectar is mere moments away. :-) Thanks Andy.

      All the BTCOD efforts to get these special little beans from their origin to my palate deserves a lot more recognition than the homage I give here: Thanks again Andy... and everybody else in "the chain".Click image for larger version

          Been brewing since 2 days after roast. Now @1 week I can say these beans are great from the get go. Interesting to observe the subtle changes/maturing of flavors and evolution in grind setting for these amazing, little beans!
          Great stuff thanks Andy

            Great looking roast too, these will develop more and more flavour over the coming week and should produce one of the best espressos you have had. Amazing body and depth that's just not found in anything else.

              awwww thanks. 26C ambient, preheated and loaded at 40, very first crack at 200 and 10mins, rolling 204 to 207, initial second at 218, no second rolling, dumped at 218.5 and 16.5mins. Tasted within an hour, if there is such a thing as a sultana marshmallow muffin sponge cake then that's what I got. Going to really enjoy the next 3 weeks :-).

                  Roast them well!
                  My tips on my roaster are no good for you, you are better off leaning here from people with similar roasting equipment... and your own taste buds. That's the real reason to home roast, you get what YOU like, not the middle ground that I need to roast to suit everyone.

                    FWIW Qishr gives me a bigger caffeine hit than I get from black tea.

                    Caveat: the tea I drink is single garden Darjeeling brewed at 90 degrees for a few minutes, it's a low caffeine cuppa. I am quite sensitive to caffeine, to the extent that I cannot drink more than two cups of coffee in the morning and none at all in the afternoon / evening. Qishr fits nicely in the middle: I can drink it in the aftenoon but not at night.

                    If you haven't tried this stuff do yourself a favour and give it a go. I'm slowly falling in love. So far my favourite method is to heat the water to 80 oC, add the Qishr and maintain a very gentle simmer until the Qishr rises like gnocchi. Yum.

                      I heard a couple of times about this drink. Could you write a recipe for a drink to cook?
