    Jamaica Blue Mountain on the hottop

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Deliveries must have started trickling into rosters, experience with this one yet?
    Feeling inspired,
    http://www.sweetmarias.com/coffee.islands.jamaica.php,
    I have tried 2 roasts on the hottop. First time I was a little late dropping the beans then left the lid off for about 1 min (that was shortly after my second scotch). Both dropped to power 8 at around 100 deg then 4 at 192 or so, then back to 8 after RFC.
    Results
    1. FC 16min/197deg, dumped at 21/205
    2. FC 15/196, dumped at 20/206
    Both seemed really slow ramping up to FC which came late, seems different? (or could it be the new filter)
    Never got to SC (quiet?) but looks around CS 8, second one slightly darker. Scant reddish chaff.
    Caught a whiff of roast 1 at 24h and it smelt really good!
    Does "low initial heat" mean slow ramp and longer roast?
    Results to come.......

    Result on roast 1 at day 3.5
    Thick fine crema. Lots of body with buttery mouthfeel.
    Mild taste. Very round, no sharpness compared to ethiopians.
    Roast 2 on day 3
    Very similar, a little more bite with a more lingering aftertaste - prefer this to roast 1.

    Will be interesting to see what happens over the next few days.

    Very nice but I think I prefer the Yirgacheffe!
