Topic: Anyone else drinking Gesha? (16 msgs / 302 lines)
1) From: Les
I keep looking for more Gesha reports.  I am drinking day 5 Gesha.
Wow, just amazing.  It is as good as yesterday.  Day one was really
good.  Very distinct floral notes, but a bit thin.  Day two was good
with many floral notes and more body.  Day 3 was the least favorite so
far.  Flavor explosion occurred on day 4 and continues into day 5.
This is good stuff!

I will be as soon as the mailman delivers, I would expect in the next day or
two.  I'll let you know how it works out in a SC/TO setup.  I am going to
try a roast similiar to your's Les, dropping temp and letting it coast for 3
minutes at the end of 1st.

Waiting for it to arrive ... I've gotten the shipping notice, and it's
usually three days travel time from California to Georgia.  So,
shipped 6/20 and I expect it here Friday, maybe Saturday.  Thursday is
a faint possibility. Whatever the arrival, it likely won't be roasted
until Monday simply because my husband is out of town Sunday-Thursday.
 A Monday roast means he gets Day 4 goodness on Friday morning of next
week.
I've been enjoying the Carmen-1800 in the meantime.  Good stuff.  He's
been getting mostly the stronger Africans for his travel coffees
lately, in order to cut through the paper filters and drip brewers and
lousy water quality of the hotels he lives in during the week.
Weekends are when I give him roasts that are subtle and meant to be
savored as more than simply morning-fuel.  (Besides, this way, he's
got a reason to come home on weekends)

We continue to be amazed.  Its hard to watch it go down in its storage 
canister!!  But wow, is it good.  And, when we break it down by shot, it 
sure isn't as expensive as some of the yuk I used to think was great 
elsewhere!

Is everyone shooting for a C+ roast?  Do we have anyone taking it further?

I targeted and believe I took the 1/2# Gesha roasted for Saturday maybe a
tad further to a Light Full City, still no 2nd crack, using a somewhat
liesurely 12:30 profile (liesurely for the Rosto as compared to a HotTop
where 12:30 would be fast)
Will get it's first brewing likely tomorrow after dinner at just shy of full
4 days rest, Americanos, shots pulled at 203f target temp. (Maybe 204f, or
likely one at each temp to compare since will be making them for Debi & I,
dialing in it's best Ameriano shot temp for Friday's dinner with Barry &
Lois and PNWG IV Saturday) Though may elect to do a Royal Balance Brewer
brewing Friday night, it'll be Barry's call.

My roasting has been delayed.  I was going to roast a third of each  
of the three.  I decided to practice with a third of a pound of a  
less expensive coffee just to get my roasting tuned in to such a  
small amount.  Then the heating element died on the heat gun just as  
I was starting the practice roast.  I had an extra heating element so  
I replaced it and started the practice roast again.  Same thing  
happened, the heating element blew so I guess something is wrong with  
the gun.  Anyway I took it as a sign that I should not roast the  
three then.  I'm looking for another heat gun.

My Gesha is gone!  Shots and two pots a day went through the pound
quickly.  My recommendation is to enjoy a drip or vac pot between 12
and 24 hours for the distinct herbal and flower flavors but a bit
thin.  Then wait till the 4th day for the flavor explosion!  If I had
another pound, that is the way I would do it.

Which shows once again how much Tom does for us! The 3# Trifecta for only
$100 was a steal of a deal in comparison.

Mike,
I am sure your roast would be better.  Shoot and I offered to roast
for free!  At 50 bucks a pound for roasting, I'd be willing to pay
shipping.

But I think Les was referring to the PROFIT of roasting one pound...(Sell
1/2 lb roasted X 2 = $100 - bean cost of $50.00....profit $50.00 a
pound roasting cost).
I seem to be getting better at this math thing...only used my calculator
onest to figure out this thingy.

Yes, I agree that was what Les was referring to. IMO Intelly is not over
charging. Remember, first a # of greens does not yield a # roasted, weight
loss 15 to 20%. Add cost of roasting, both the energy be it gas and or
electricity of the roaster and labor. At $52 per half pound roasted price
for the Auction Lot Gesha they aren't even close to doubling their
investment, in fact a rather slim margin, not a $50 per pound roasted
profit.
