  • Heavy body offering


    Hi all
    Wondering which of the current green bean offerings have a really thick body, lowish acidity, that would form the basis of a good bean to blend with? I am looking at at least using this as a 50-60% base. I like a really full coffee, either milk based, or plunger.
    Thanks in advance.

    My choice is Ethiopian Yirgacheffe.

      Thick body and low acidity means Indonesian to me... so my suggestion is Sumatran Mandheling Jade.

          Thanks, all. I do have some Yirgi, so may give the Mandheling Jade a crack. A darker roast to just beyond SC, I presume?
          Cheers

              50% Brazil
              30% Ethiopian
              20% Indonesian
              Taken 15-20 seconds into second crack.

              Indian coffees such as India Tiger Mountain etc are also good for body and can be incorporated into the above blend.

                Noooooooo! Just beyond second crack is the fire brigade! And the insurance assessor!

                Body peaks at the start of second crack, the further into second crack you go then body, sweetness and bean flavour will decline.

                  Try just before / first few yelps second crack, does not need any more than this, plenty of syrupy body.

                    Hi, thanks. Most of my roasts are taken to start of SC, around 217-220 Celsius.

                      I'm currently really enjoying the Brasil's - very under-rated bean (by me so far!). Smooth, sweet, big body, chocolatey…

                          My usual blend. Perfect!

                            This is about the only heavy body offering I can come up with.

                              Timor would be my pick although as SO rather than blend.
