Roasted some Monsooned Elephant last night in a Poppery II, with extension
chord in an effort to extend the roast, etc. I did extend first crack by a
few minutes but wasn't able to get the bean as dark as I wanted. I ended up
with a lovely C+ even though I wanted FC or even Vienna.
My question is: Does elephant roast light? Does anyone have any favorite
uses for this bean?
Incidentally, this morning I pulled a few shots of it straight. It was just
as SM's advertised--a musty bittersweetness (but not dirty or moldy)--and
produced spectacular crema. Also, the beans roast really beautifully,
taking on a hardwood cast. I'm loving this bean already.
