Topic: Help with Esmerelda Gesha profile - the results (3 msgs / 65 lines)
1) From: Kris McN
I'm drinking a cup of the Esmerelda Gesha on 4.5 days rest following miKe's
roast recommendations - so much better!  No grassy-ness at all, an extremely
smooth, pleasant cup.  It's quite light, delicate, and subtle, but I
wouldn't call it "thin" at all.
I was obviously rushing the roast before.  I'm not sure why, most of my
HG/BrM roasts are 11-14 minutes long.  Don't know why I was doing this bean
so quickly (maybe the smaller batch size I decided to do was messin' with
me).
Anyway, thanks for the advice, miKe.  Made all the difference.  I look
forward to how it will develop over the next couple of days.

good!:-)

I'm enjoying a cup right now, and it's even better this morning!  It's got a
little snap on the front end, subtle, hard-to-pin-down complexity in the
middle, ending with a smooooooth chocolately finish.  So well-balanced.  I
can really see why it gets the raves.
