Topic: Gene Cafe Profile Preliminary Results Posted (8 msgs / 341 lines)
1) From: Kevin
I posted the preliminary results of the GC roast profile experiment #1http://homecoffeeroastblog.blogspot.com/  There was absolutely a
difference in the roast process and how the beans reacted/developed.
I'll update the results when I cup out the two batches.
Let me know your thoughts.

Kevin,
Lately, I have been doing something similar to your batch # 1 and have been
liking the results even more.  I am thinking that this is a good profile to
bring out brightness whereas the other may bet better for something like the
Indonesian coffees.  I can't wait to see your cupping results.  Are you
going to cup them once per day?

If not, do you have a Swissgold filter that you can use at the office?
French Press on one and paper-filter drip on another ... might really skew
things.

Eddie,
I will cup each batch once per day.  Batch 1 at home with a French  
Press and Batch 2 at work with a drip brewer (FP is too messy for the  
office).  I know it's not a fair comparison but I really love the  
body and extra flavor from a FP.  Do you think this will slant the  
results too much?  Should I drip brew in both locals?

Eddie,
Unfortunately, I don't have a swiss gold for the office.  I have one  
on the way from our hosts for home.  I can brew both with a drip and  
Melitta filter though.  I'm wondering if a Swissgold would be too  
much mess for the office...I probably should order one from SM...

Eddie,
I gave in and purchased the swissgold filter (from SM) for the office
drip.  I now have one from home and office.
I brewed the Mexican Chiapas special lot this  morning (the batch
roasted with your profile) on 1 day of rest.  Unbelievable coffee!
This is the best tasting of all my roasts with the Zimbabwe Dandoni a
cose 2nd.  The vanilla (almost a buttery vanilla because of the oil in
the cup) and pear stand out in the cup as well as the anise spice
aftertaste (it's very slight but there).  I can't pick up any mango
yet.  I'll brew up batch 2 (miKe's suggested profile) in the office
after lunch.  Wow, this is hands down the best coffee I've ever had!
It's coffee like this that make me wish I could handle more than 24oz
in the morning.  I could drink this all day!  :((  just poured my last
cup...until lunch...I'll update the blog with cupping results this
evening.
...Waiting on Tom to offer the Misty Valley today...

Eddie,
So far, your profile with spiking the temp to 482 then backing down to 462
is in the lead.  The cup has a little more flavor to it.  I've posted two
days worth of results.

Interesting ... I will be watching ... it will be interesting to see if the
development of batch 2 is just delayed.
