Topic: New flavor in IMV (5 msgs / 128 lines)
1) From: Bryan Wray
Well... I think it normally would have been one of those, "Wow, what was that?" kind of flavors, but instead it instantly reminded me of something.  Not too far off from what I normally taste in IMV, but it was still a little different.  I don't think I've ever been able to correctly describe a strange flavor as easily as I was able to this one...
Strawberry bubblegum...
Strawberry all the time, especially in the aroma, but the bubblegum part was new!
In other news:
The shop is buying coffee from me this week instead of Dillanos (our normal roaster) so I have about... oh... 25 more pounds to go (one pound at a time in the Behmor) at 35 minutes/pound including cleanup and pre-roast cycle to filter out small beans... this is gunna take a while!  (Not to mention I just totally killed my "it's starting to get low" stash.  I think when I am done I will have about 5 pounds of greens left.  We are talking insanely scary stash levels!  Common UPS...!)
Have a good morning all!

Hey no knock on the Behmor but you may want to consider a step up to
the 6lb RK drum, though roasting in MI might prove a challenge unless
you have a big open garage! =)

I attend a presentation about coffee last year and "strawberry" as a
flavor was described as a result of fermentation in a dry processed. I
will try to get more details and maybe someone else can add comment.

RE In other news: You Sir are NUTS! :-)
Of course that said by someone who in the last few months has roasted over
500 CCR HT batches for all our Kafe SO's and the 35% elements (comprised of
4 different beans/profiles two bass and two top end) of our main Ohana Blend
while Bruce has been roasting the 65% mid section elements of Ohana
pre-blended RK. The good news is after 3&1/2 months our USRC 8 pounder was
FINALLY finished being built and tested this Monday!!!!! Though it'll likely
be another month or so before shippped, installed and in production.
