Topic: Is oil on beans good? (16 msgs / 343 lines)
1) From: Kevin
Beth,
Sounds like Vienna or maybe even French roast to me.  When I roasted
the Timor to FC the beans had no noticeable oil except possibly a spec
here or there.  There's only one way to find out for sure; brew 'em
up!

My personal preference for some of the coffee I roast is for beans, =
after they rest a bit, to have oil spots appear on them.  If you look at =
Tom's pictorial on roast levels, you'll see the oil spots to completely =
oily happens when you're at the darker end of the roast "spectrum".

3) From: Kevin
Yeah, I'd just brew it up.  Dark roast doesn't necessarily mean
strong.  You'll just taste more of the roast characteristics vs. the
origin characteristics you'd find at lighter roasts.  Brew it up in
your usual method.  You might enjoy it.

4) From: Brian Kamnetz
Beth,
"Strong" can mean many different things to different people. Some people,
when they say Strong, mean that they use a high ratio of coffee to water.
Others mean the characteristics of the beans; some beans have "stronger"
flavors, though people may disagree, based on their individual palates, what
exactly constitutes "Strong" flavors and which beans have or don't have
those characteristics. Finally, there is what is called "roast
characteristics", which actually means "how burned is it?" Starbucks coffee
is burned. If you get a cup of regular Starbucks coffee and sip on it as it
cools, you will likely taste more and more as the coffee cools a burned
flavor. As the coffee gets more and more burned, you more and more taste the
charred parts of the beans, and less and less taste the flavors originating
in the beans. Some people like the burned flavor more than the actual coffee
flavors, especially if that's what they are used to, and especially, it
seems, if they used the burned coffee as a flavoring agent for milk and milk
products.
As was mentioned, brew this coffee in your normal way. I recommend that you
do NOT try to make the coffee "less strong" by using less coffee than usual.
Use the same amount, or even a touch more than usual. Using too little
coffee generally results in a bitter brew.
That sounds like very cold weather, all right; can you remind me of where
you are?
Good luck,
Brian

Beth,
To echo Kevin's sentiments, I have found the Timor to be a very good and
flavorful coffee at the darker roast levels, but not overly strong.  If our
tastes are somewhat similar, you find that you really enjoy that coffee.
You can always use it as a learning reference for the next roast.
Eddie
