Yirg on way... shhhh
Yirg on way... shhhh
Woo hoo! Still have some money in my bank account Andy ;)
Whats that you say? Did I hear what I thought I heard? Heart rate and blood pressure have just increased dramatically........ Excitement is building, tension mounts and rides away...... But shhh you say.... So mums the word then.........
Is there a rough estimated eta for this?
I have a seat at the MotoGP with my name on it so I would expect shortly after that.
Spoiled mate! Phillip island rocks, I hope you make it back alive. Thanks for the info, I too love a dark african, particuarly a yirgacheffe....... Ray.
Thanks for the heads up Andy, I will be waiting in anticipation as I havent tried a Yirg before. But have been wanting to for some time, due to the amount of CS that rave about it.
What flavours should I expect from this bean? and what sort of roast profile should I be aiming for?
Look here Goodies...
I dont agree with all the comments, eg. I think its a pretty forgiving bean to roast, and think it far more tasty than tea!...I had a laugh
Dont under roast it, just into rolling second crack, pull immediately cool as quick as possible, youll love it.... You can try it a bit darker if you like, as Dennis said I also consider it to be quite forgiving as well ie. performs well all the way up to the point before its burnt........
Rwandan would be awesome.
Only if it was as good as the last one... and sadly this lot it is no where near as good.
I even re-roasted some of the previous lot to compare back-to-back (just as a sanity check)
Well I have nothing to compare as I havent had this one before. (Mind you I have to fight all the other CS to get to it this beanbay) But im sure I will still like this batch (if I manage to get some that is)Originally Posted by Andy Freeman link=1191073939/0#10 date=1191752902
What bean are you referring to here Andy? The Yirg?Originally Posted by Andy Freeman link=1191073939/0#10 date=1191752902
No... I was refering to the previous post
"Rwandan would be awesome."
...Only if it was as good as the last one... and sadly this lot it is no where near as good.
Well that makes me more excited about the Yirg.

Cool, looking forward to getting some Yirg.
Cant wait to try Yirg and Kenya AA from this months beanbay..............................
Any more of these beans or similar to look forward to?
I (and I am sure a few others) missed out on the Yirg, and my stash of Kenya AA is running very low.
Ive just started brewing my Yirg and it has lived up to all the hype CSers gave it.
Cool. Ive got 2 batches resting - one stopped just on first snaps of 2nd, and one stopped just before 2nd. Looking forward to trying them, but have to finish my last Hue Hue batch first. The Yirg seemed to roast darker than I expected, considering the roasts were stopped so soon. I was expecting them to turn out quite light, but they still turned out at around CS9, or slightly darker.Originally Posted by greenman link=1191073939/15#18 date=1194422363
