Topic: Mixing beans (14 msgs / 319 lines)
1) From: Clifton Burkett
I was wondering if anyone else likes to mix roasts from different =
devices. I
routinely roast to different levels and mix them but yesterday I did a =
batch
in my HPR and a batch in my HotTop and mixed them. I think the high =
notes of
the Harar comes through better in the air roaster but I like the body =
from
the HotTop. Mixing them seems to work well. I also did this with SM's =
French
roast blend. Haven't sampled the French roast yet. Both are going to be =
used
in the Bunn or the Bodums. I haven't been doing much drip, vacuum or =
French
press since I got the Giotto. Rediscovery of vacuum brewin' a wonderful
thang! Off to try the French roast in the French press!

I often blend beans from the wok and from the over the fire drum or 
Androck popcorn popper.  The blend that I won the Raleigh home roast 
competition with was a single origin Nicaraguan bean roasted to two 
different degrees, the lighter half was roasted in the wok and was 
three days old, the darker half was roasted in the Androck popcorn 
popper over a pecan wood fire and was six days old.

Jim, how did you keep the six day old coffee? Six days is considered "old" 
in many roasting circles for optimum quality.

Pecan Jim,
 
What is your judgment on my Kagera Blend?

Les,
      It makes a great vacuum and French press coffee but as espresso 
and espresso based drinks there is a bit of bite in the lingering taste =
that I don't know where it comes from.

Jim,
 
That is interesting!  Mine has no bite at all.  How long did you rest it?  I didn't pull any shots until 72 hours of rest.  I just finished off a batch on Sat. and it was nice and smooth with no bite.

9) From: Jay Bradshaw
I've only been home roasting a short time, but now have several different
grean beans in very small quantities (maybe 1-2 ozs) - not really enough
individually to roast in the iRoar.
So far I have some Kenyan, Columbiam, Ethiopian, and Peruvian green beans,
but with time will probably add more to that list.  My first reaction was to
just toss them together and make my own catch-all blend, but then I wondered
if there were some combinations that just don't work and should be avoided?
Suggestions?
Thanks,
Jay

roast them separate - then blend them.  Tom has nailed a few pre-roasted
blends, Moka Kadir for example - but he is the master.
Roast them single origin and blend to get what you want in the final cup.

Generally speaking I'd not mix a Kenya with an Ethiopia. Thinking back over
the years can't think of any two that would compliment each other.

I have a left over bag.  Once you get 10-15+ different beans in there, you
can roast the mutt blend and it will taste like good coffee!  Good beans
make good coffee.  Sweet Marias only sells good beans.

I agree with Les. I've had a few mutt blends that turned out awesome.

Jay,
When I have less than 4 oz. of green beans left, I mix them up until I have at least 2 lbs of greens. I then roast 'em up to at least a FC+. Calling them my mystery blend, family and friend alike are thrilled to get some of my fresh homeroast. For my own taste buds, a lot better than I thought such a blend would be! Right now, I have about 1 1/2 lbs of beans including at least 13 of SWEET MARIA'S beans.
