    Opinions wanted: beans for shots vs Milk based coffees

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    GDay

    Any opinions out there as to which roasted beans are better suited for milk based coffees vs espresso shots?

    Im Currently roasting (to CSR 9-10), and my opinion on these are:
    Ethiopian Yirgachaffe - espresso
    Brazil original Bourbon - either
    Kenya AA - either
    Organic blend (specific origin unknown Africa/South America):either

    To roast
    Monsooned Malabar ?
    Ethiopian Gambella - either?
    Malawi?

    Cheers
    Steve

    Peru Ceja de Selva--both, love it!
    Monsoon Malabar--both, some love it, some hate it!!
    Kenya makes a great plunger brew with lighter roast
    Ethiopian--fruity/choc bombs--both
    :) :)
