Roasted this last weekend in my new sc/to setup. Man, it makes life easy roasting in there! Im still playing with roast times, but managed to get this one to 15mins at a c+/fc roast, just shy of 2nd crack I think. Im trying to finish off a bunch of beans, I used: 1/3 cup mexican chiapas 1/3 cup brazil yellow bourbon 1/3 cup guat maria especial 1/2 cup la minita Its nice and mellow, with this lingering fruity spice undertone. Great smell too! Not sure if it was a mistake, but I think I like it!
"Tastes"/sounds like a very good Americano or cappuccino shot! Probably a bit out of balance on the bright side for well balanced straight shot. Though I'd wager pulling a hair higher than "normal" (~200f middle of the road standard) temp ristretto would be quite yummy;-) Kona Konnaisseur miKe mcKoffee URL to Rosto mods, FrankenFormer, some recipes etc:http://mdmint.home.comcast.net/coffee/Rosto_mod.htmUltimately the quest for Koffee Nirvana is a solitary path.

I havent tried as a shot, only press pot, but yes, it is bright, maybe that adds to the perceived spiceyness? :) Ill have to test other ways today if its not too late when im home..
