I just got a lb of this coffee, and cant find the link to it on the SM site any more. There is even a link to the brazil page on the green coffee page, but it doesn't have it listed any more. What am I supposed to do with it? Lol. I got it for espresso blend, but wanted to read the notes/roasting hints. :(

<Snip> Well what to do with it is roast it, rest it, grind it, brew it, drink it! When a coffee is no longer available it's write-up is moved to the archives.

Ya, I thought roasting would be a good idea. After that is where it got confusing. :p The problem is that roasting times for brewed coffees and roasting times for espresso blends seem to be around the same. In my popper, I take my espresso roasts to 12mins (ive heard this is the max for them, otherwise they get baked). Reading roasting notes makes it seem that brewed coffees should be city+ to FC, ending around 11mins. Guess ive got some experimenting to do. Don't think ill be able to stretch it past 10.
AHHHHH, yet another hidden link!! What is everyones secret link source?? :) Thanks :)

The coffee sold out yesterday; hence the move to archive (I know 'cuz I got one of the last 5#s ordered Sunday -- I now have a 'get out of jail card' with my wife since I have that 5#'s rounding out my stash). I don't use an espresso machine but rather a Bialetti stove top. The roast is wonderfully sweet and chocolate-y at a full city in it. It is a nice base to play with in blends. I like it Yellow Bourbon/Sumatran/Rwanda, 50/25/25. Tom indicates C+ all the way up to a recommended FC+ for an espresso. You are going to enjoy it, DB
It is now in the archives:http://www.sweetmarias.com/coffee.reviewarchive.a-f.htmlA very good brewed coffee at FC, I might add. Let us know how it works out as an espresso component, Mark, in Fallbrook CA
Leo - it's hidden at the bottom of the Sweet Maria's green beans page: *Archives:* A - F | G - K | L - P| R - S | T - Z| 2004 -2003 | 2001-2002 | Pre-2000 Tom's Sample Cupping Log| Moisture Content Readings Regards, Brett On 9/19/06, Leo Zick wrote: <Snip> -- Cheers, Bretthttp://homeroast.freeservers.com
