What's in Your Roaster This Week?
Colombian Cup of Excellence, Finca San Antonio. Moving older beans out of the stash (like to use by 12 months).

I distributed this one, thanks to Cafe Imports. I am not a big Colombian fan but this one is spectacular:

Will top off about 4 roasts of it with a Aama Farm organic Kona:

Great video to watch (upper right corner) on a woman (Nancy Griffith) who clearly understands the sacredness of her place.

I think I'll start with a batch of Bolivia FTO SHG EP Caranavi and Peru FTO San Ignacio Cajamarca each. These are both new to me, so I have some studying to do.

Then Guatemala Oriente D-P, Sumatra Blue batak "Tarbarita" Peaberry and Costa Rica COE - Santa Lucia.

That ought to keep me happy for a week or so...

The A'ama video is indeed a nice watch. Thanks for sharing that, B|J.

Respect the bean.

Fresh Roast 8, Gene Cafe, JYTT 1k, Quest M3, Mazzer Mini, Technivorm, various size presses and many more brewers.
About to crank up the old gene cafe with a batch of Ethiopian Idido Misty Valley (DP):)
Wasnt impressed with the (WP) version of it last year, but reviews of this one look righteous:)
Invalsa's Bolivian and the Ethiopian Shanta Golba.

Don't put the cart before the horse. Put the horse in the cart and listen to him say "weeeee" all the way down the hill.
No surprise here. I'm doing my big-bag coffees: a rough but tasty PNG Yha Hauka FTO and a surprisingly full-flavored Mexican Chiapas decaf Royal Select WP FTO. But happily I'm also still working off a small bag of historic/folkloric Yemen Ismali given me by a generous member over on GCC. Wild and wonderful!

...had to chuckle. I helped Ben load that Costa Rican into his van. Small world.

Most likely Shanta Golba this week :trink25:
As soon as the beans come in this week, we'll roast up some nutella blend

Great video of Nancy Griffith, great story about A'ama coffee and her early efforts to clear out the tangle exposing the old coffee trees. Back when coffee was selling for 3-9 cents per pound! I guess we all dream there are other places in the world waiting for such discovery.

It is amazing that there are 700 small producers who are her neighbors. Would be great to hear 700 stories!
Roasted 1lb of Brazil Cerrado 17/18 on Saturday...
Today it's a cup of drip in the morning, and a cappo right now!

Another sample roasting session completed

Two Malawi samples
One FTO Uganda Bugisu AA sample

Two cupping controls--one Malawi and one Uganda Bugisu.
Last nite:
Nicaraguan Limoncillo Pacamara (DP).
Good Lord, these beans are huge! Monsoon Malabar size!
Unroasted beans had a wonderfully fruity aroma. Very pungent aroma this morning, although not fruity like it smelled green. First sample will be in the morning(3/19)....
Last night I got my thermocouple from SM along with the following beans. I'm working on an espresso blend. Slow curve up to 1C and about 4:30 to the beginnings of 2C.

Sumatra Lintong Dolok Sanggul
Colombia "Dos Payasos de Tolima"
Brazil Carmo de Minas - Fazenda do Serrado
Ethiopia Organic DP Idido Misty Valley

First stab at coffee from Honduras. I don't know what to expect!

OK, Happy Mug site will let you order Green Coffee again.

11/21/2015 04:35
Happy mug moved a couple of years ago. They were up in a few days. Maybe they need more space for the increased business!

11/20/2015 14:36
I guess Happy Mug is shut down for a bit. I posted on Forum.
