Topic: Sulawesi Enrekang "Mount Alla" (7 msgs / 468 lines)
1) From: homeroast
I just roasted my first batch of this, and immediately ordered a 5 lb 
bag after tasting it.  (I learn from the absence of Siberia)
So, I finally got the i_Roast under control temperature wise I think, 
and tried to put together a profile I thought would be a good one.  The 
profile used was:
325-2min, 350-3min, 370-3min, 405-2min, 415-4min for total 14 min.
I was trying for a Full City roast, and think this is very close.

(and I have no idea how these temperatures were attained with the 
program, but the program seems to work)
Ok, this is my first attempt at sending my thoughts on a coffee, so be 
gentle.
Wow...when I ground some of this to cup it, I got a distinct caramel 
smell from the grind.  However, when water was added, my mouth 
immediately started watering.  It smelled like my mom's homemade 
molasses cookies!!!  Tasting it, I found chocolate and molasses.  Body 
was medium (to me), but had a wonderful, smooth mouth feel about it 
(almost like warm molasses).  Lingering molasses, long after the 
tasting.  I did not get the spice in the cup that Tom spoke of, though 
in the aroma of the beans I caught a brief scent of Chinese 5 spice. (at 
least, that is what it reminded me of)
I simply cannot wait to try this as an espresso!
Best Regards,
Ken B

Hi again Ron,
I would be very interested in hearing your thoughts on it.  As I said, 
this was a first for me, in both aiming a profile at a particular roast, 
and sending my thoughts on the results with a coffee I had never tasted 
before. I guess I should have said YYMV. :-)
Best Regards,
Ken B

Wow! If you liked it that much right out of the roaster, I think you'll 
love it in a couple days. I don't remember the specifics, but the 
Sulawesi I last had, (pre log keeping days) was outstanding with a rest 
period.
Let us know how the flavors progress.

I can report that, to me (rank amateur roaster/taster), this makes a 
WONDERFUL SO espresso in my Gaggia.  The molasses remains in the 
espresso, though it is toned down with sweet chocolate. The mouth feel 
consistency is like syrup.  My last shots were at 12:15 and I can still 
taste the chocolate and molasses.  This is a very naturally sweet 
coffee, and if you make cappuccino and use sugar, use less or it will be 
too sweet.  (I know, I tried it...and actually, with the molasses, white 
sugar instead of turbinado would probably be better too, though the 
turbinado may enhance the molasses.) 
I really hope I can exactly recreate this roast. I hope the meticulous 
note taking will pay off. :-)  I would experiment with a latte, but I 
have already had 4 shots since 11, 3 espressos and 1 cappuccino, so I 
think I will use discretion and stop here since my ears are already 
warm.  This is one of the four best coffee's that *I* have ever tasted. 
(very limited experience) More like a dessert than a coffee, a Chateau 
d'Yquem vs. a Lafitte.  I am now totally hooked on roasting my own! :-D
I would be very interested in others opinions on this coffee if you 
would care to share.
Best Regards,
Ken B
