after reading about all the coffee everyone is roasting etc. I finally decided on the following; Brazil Organic Cachoeira -Yellow Bourbon, Ethiopia Harar Horse -Green Stripe these two seem to have the most positive feedback. what roast would ya'll start at? How many days/hours till peak? Scjgb3
The Yellow Bourbon is more forgiving, so I would start with a nice city roast. This is just past 1st crack, but not into second crack. I had some today rested for 2 days and it was very good. The Harar Horse-Green Stripe really hit stride at 4 days rest and was going strong at day 9 when I ran out. I roasted it just a few snaps into second crack. It does well with a darker roast.

Les, How do you compare the Brazil Organic Cachoeira -Yellow Bourbon, to last years Brazil Sul de Minas - Yellow Bourbon? Mike (just plain)
I did a head to head and could tell no significant difference. The prep on the new Yellow Bourbon seems to be a little cleaner. Maybe I should keep my mouth shut, I have not put in my big order for this years crop yet. I just finish the last of the Sul de Minas. Simply awesome shots this AM, balanced, sweet, with that great full flavor that comes from a good Brazil. On 8/2/06, Michael Dhabolt wrote: <Snip>

I ordered 5 lbs 2 days ago because of last year. Now I am sorry I didn't order more and I haven't even received it yet.
Barry, <Snip> I know what you mean, I'll add 20# to this 12# order I'm sure. Mike (just plain)
Should come tomorrow.I remember how we both enjoyed it last year.Will roast some as soon as I get it and will let you know.

Have you tried the "Customer Pickup - Hold for Harvey" shipping option? This is fancy wording for flat rate shipping of $9 for up to 12lb of beans - takes 2-3 days in the US... Brett On 8/3/06, Scjgb3 wrote: <Snip> -- Regards, Brett Mason HomeRoast Zassman
brett, no i haven't, But now since i understand i will. i have a reason to order some more!! Like i need another reason. lol happy brewing joel
Joel, Bear in mind that only beans (12 lbs. or less) and cotton bags can be included in Harvey orders. I live on Chesapeake Bay in VA and my Harvey orders arrive in three days. Excellent. TO in VA On 8/3/06, Scjgb3 wrote: <Snip>
awwwww.............only 12lbs. i would love to have 12 at once i usually just buy 2-3 at time since i'm the only real coffee drinker in the house. also i only can roast 1/2cup at time, which means i can roast every day. got to love that though. house always smells of coffee. besides still waiting on the CORY to show up.
actually it's up to 12 pounds On 8/3/06, Scjgb3 wrote: <Snip> -- "Good night, and Good Coffee" www.onthisjourney.typepad.com
