    Newbie First Roast

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    My first Batch

    Indian Mysore Nuggets from this latest poll

    I got the impression from these forums that there was more flavour in a lighter roast, so I stopped at beginning of second crack

    Let them rest for at least 48 hours. This one packs a bit of a punch, so if you take your coffee with milk youll like it. If you take it black, it is very similar to Kenyan, bright and fruit driven.

    Taste the coffee the normal way you take your coffee. Were not professional cuppers, well most of us anyway. It all comes down to what you taste, and what you enjoy. When I post cupping notes, I just try to put it across as a sample for others to take in and compare to. If you dont agree that it tastes like A or B, thats your taste. We dont set guidelines as to how what a particular origin should taste like. There are loose descriptions for certain origins, which are only a baseline. From there, you get differences from crop to crop depending on atmospheric conditions, etc.

    If youre serious about cupping for real, plunger would probably be closer to what professional cuppers do than any other brewing method.

    Congratulations Doppler!

    What sort of machines are you without?

    I am without an Expobar Brewtus II, ECM Giotto, La Scala Butterfly, Mazzer Mini . . . . .

    just put the beans in a mortar and pestle, or a whirly-blade spice grinder if oyu have one, and crush them up a bit. Throw them in a plunger, or find some other way to strain out the ground beans, then drink away ! Welcome to the dark side. Good luck with the negotiations !!!!!
