Topic: roasting beans and resting (6 msgs / 166 lines)
1) From: susan oppenheim
hi again
all the notes i find say to go to FC or FC+
some say just before second crack
i can do that part
what i really need to know is how long to rest the beans
panama esmerelda la gesha
jacu bird
kopi luwak
on what day should we grind it??
does anyone know or remember?/
some get sweet on day 5 after being almost bitter before .....like the
zimbabwe,other african beans
i want to make everyone say wow....
i laso want to have a discussion about resting
some people here in toronto who sell roasters and beans market coffee as
only being the best right after roasting
i am glad i learned from this site as resting works for me
i think that is misleading marketing on their part telling people right
after roatsing
but then some of the posterson here  say that
what to think//
thanks
susan

Grind on Saturday, just before brewing - OR if it's going to be too busy,
grind early, but as close to the brew time as possible, and then save in vac
bags or ziplocks...
Resting?  Well, all the way til Saturday AM if it were me...

Hey Susan,
I found the Jacu Bird Coffee to be excellent from days 3 through 5; it
smoothed a bit and developed a bit of a peppery note by about day 5,
if I remember correctly.  The cocoa, dusty sweetness was incredible
throughout and really came to life in the Yama Vac Pot.
The Gesha, I found most instense, balanced and fruited on day 5.
Warmed the beans thoroughly (RK Drum), then employed a "bright
profile" ramp up to 1st crack, dropped the heat back a bit and ended
the roast about a minute beyond 1st crack, which was a solid City+,
nowhere near 2nd crack.
I have no experience with Kopi Luwak.
Hope this is helpful ...
Eddie

50 CSA demerits to Brett.
Regardless how busy ALWAYS ONLY grind immediately before brewing. Otherwise
serve Foulgers or Charbucks. No excuse for destroying coffee.
 
To get the best cup balance rest 4 to 5 days, especially on lighter roasts.
While great straight from the roaster better overall rested. Don't roast the
Gesha any darker than Light Full City. (FWIW ~City+ 438f finish bean temp my
Gesha roasts.)
Kopi & Birdie Poo? I'd take 'em to first early 2nd at most. (Of course how
roasted just as important as final degree of roast as Ed mentioned earlier
today in Aggie thread.)

Drat - now I have gone negative in my CSA points.
Who gives a Fraijanes?  Not me, CSA points can't budge a curmudgeon....
I've been to Java Mama's, sampled the brews, tasted the baked goods, played
with the roasters (the machines, keep on track!), and purchased some
treasures!  Susan does everything herself - so she's gunna be hopping, and
people are going to be waiting - OR - she just may grind ahead....
 *POW* -grind- %VAC%
    it's a lot like Batman in Black and White
