Still roasting...

Postby cooldaddybeck » Sun Jan 04, 2009 10:37 pm

Even though I've been relegated to brewer's assistant (helping my brothers with their brews), I still roast weekly.

I just wrapped up my 5# of Indian Malabar, waiting for my next order to ship from C3 (hint hint guys).

:0)

Looks a little quiet here on the coffee side, what's everyone up to?

Gary, I'll swap some beans with you soon. I'm going to pick up some from a local supplier soon, they've got some interesting varieties available.

I haven't roasted in quite some time. Costco has some roasted beans which come in under the price of green beans and make a darn nice cup. I do need to roast up the supplies I have (which are many) in the near future - thanks for the reminder I need to crank up the bread machine and heat gun!

I just finished the last of my 5 pounds of Sumatran that was excellent, now I'm working on a batch of Fair Trade Organic Colombian. I'd like to be able to have 3 or 4 varieties roasted but it would confuse my wife-she'd end up randomly pouring beans out of each jar into the grinder and then complain that the coffee didn't taste like it did yesterday. :shock:

I only roast because:
A - it is less expensive
B - it makes a better cup of joe than beans I can purchase

When the price is less and the cup is in the ballpark I put down the heat gun... :wink:

I've been roasting mainly dry-processed Ethiopians like the DP Korate Sidamo. I usually end up blending them half and half with my Brazilian Morenhina Formosa.

I just got 10 lbs of Red Sea blend from Royal (it's a blend of ethiopian and yemeni) and been liking it a lot.

This morning I had some Panama Esmerelda Gesha lot #5. My most expensive coffee. Roasted it last weekend and let it rest, and it's wonderful.
