Topic: Best brew method for Gesha? (14 msgs / 621 lines)
1) From: Casey Jones
Hi there,
I just roasted my first batch of Gesha last night and I'm trying to be
responsible with the goods.
So, I'd like to know your thoughts on my best use of Gesha (besides
just packing it up and sending to you! ha!)
My options are...Aeropress, Chemex, Moka pot, or espresso.
Also, am I correct in letting it rest until Sunday?
Thanks for your input.

...enjoying some Green Stripe via Zass/Aeropress.  My co-workers just
stare as if I'm some mad scientist. Considering the coffee in the
office, I'm the only sane one here!

I had some this morning in the Technivorm with a swiss gold filter.  I can't
believe the difference the swiss gold filter makes.  With your choices, I
would go with the chemex the first day, Moka Pot the second and americanos
in the espresso machine after that.

Thanks Les,
Come to think of it I have a swiss gold for a melitta in the back of
my coffee cabinet.  Forgot all about it.  I've give it a try as well
if there's any left.

Yes, yes- I just roasted the first 400g of my Brazil Fazenda Ipanema "Dulce"
HG/MB, I just nursed it into a luscious smoking Second Crack at 21:00. Hit
the cooler and they were dead Cold in 15 seconds.
FC+? Two hours ago. Maybe in the morning I'll pop the lid for a brew.
For now, I have to "put up" with some Green Stripe! Oooh- It's Good!
Aerowenpress, Chemowenex, Owen pot, TVOwen or espressowen- they're all
good...
Cheers -RayO, aka Opa!
The Grinder is the Prime Implement. Get a good one- quit wasting coffee!

I rested mine 36 hrs. and Aeropressed it. It was yummy. I injured  
both wrists in the interim and will have to be content with pourover  
drip for the next cup.

Sounds like I won't be disappointed no matter what I choose.  Also
sounds like I need to go back to the garage for another batch.    Damn
that 2 lb limit!
Sorry to hear about your wrists.  Pourover not that bad when you've
got homeroast.  I start off every morning with a cup while Anita warms
up.
Take care,
-Casey

Bringing it with me (plus a whirly-blade--can't work the Zass) to the  
folk conference I'm helping run in MI this weekend. Tried brewing  
some Guat HueHue Decaf tonight using the inverted Aeropress, which  
pushes down more easily than the regular method (I put my hands on  
the top and actually pressed down with my chin--still like the ol'  
way better. Oddly enough, it wasn't hard to pull shots or cappas-- 
easier than turning a doorknob and pulling open a door or turning the  
ignition key in the car. Will really have espresso withdrawal this  
weekend--no good espresso bars bet. here & Hickory Corners (Beaners  
in Portage, MI is an "it'll have to do"). At least I have my Gesha  
(hehehe--my family has no idea, since I left them with lots of  
Sumatra & Sidamo); and the conference center gets fairly fresh beans  
from the MSU catering dept, so the cafeteria joe ain't too bad. (And  
I will have my decaf Guat. for bedtime).
Will probably not be logging on much except for conference business  
(and downloading the NY Times crosswords). Talk more Monday--have a  
great weekend! (This will be the first night since I fell that I can  
sleep w/o painkillers!).

What's going on with the zass - is it failing, or are you having hand
trouble with the method?

You could always come up to my house in Howell for a good shot or two.  =

Ouch!  Hope it's nothing serious.

Sprained wrists and elbow--and l. wrist/ rt elbow may be broken (long  
story--busy right now checking folks into the folk conference). Zass  
itself is fine.

Day #1 Chemex -- Wow! Full of Earl Grey and Jasmine.
I made the cup first, then when back to read the SM notes.  It's
exciting to be able to identify some of the things that Tom describes.
Day #2/#3  Aeropress
Being on the road my option was Zass/AP.  It was good too.  Not the
wow factor that I had with the Chemex, but a very pleasant cup
nonetheless.   Maybe sitting in the hotel room vs. sitting on my couch
at home had something to do with it.
Back at home tomorrow for moka pot.  I'll have to do another batch for
americanos.  This bag is almost gone!
