  • Short finish

    Hi everyone
    my blend is fairly simple (yirg, indo-Sumatra, Colombia and Png). It comes out like hpney,rich and spicy. The only thing is a very short finish, especially in milk.

    Any thoughts on how to improve the finish?

    Many thanks

    Hi espressomonk, are you roasting the components separately or all together?

      Hey Espressomonk - what proportions of each are you using?

          I guess youve tried lifting the percentages a tad?? Maybe lower the Yirg a bit and lift the Sumatran?

          This was the last annoying thing to sort out in the KJM blend - I wanted to get rid of what I describe as a dry finish. I ended up lowering the blend percentages to put in an increase in the Indonesian beans.

          HAVING said that - beware - because I could also get rid of the dryness by doing other things too! I suspect this is a fine tweak kind of thing. If I might suggest some very 0.01g type scales and hand blending then grinding then tasting. Maybe you need to not swallow till you get it right, but Im sure itll get there.

          The other little remark Id make is that (for me) Kimel tended to accentuate the dryness somewhat.

              What I mean by that is the somewhat dry finish it leaves in your mouth. I have to admit to also using it to mean it lacks the long lingering aftertaste that coffees like a good Yemeni or Ethiopian give.

              But since weve not all agreed on a set of standard terminology - good call ServingRoyalty... Does need defining.
