Topic: Kona Greenwell and Australia Mountain (12 msgs / 249 lines)
1) From: Slinkster
Just had a stash-diving expedition, found 2# of each of these beans.  I 
believe I've not roasted these because I didn't want to ruin any of it 
:D  That said, what is a good target roast for each of these for vacpot 
brewing?  I have a CaffeRosto that is unmodded save for installation of 
a thermometer.

Dunno about the Kona, but in my experience the Aussies like to be on  
the lighter side, C to C+, certainly no darker than FC.

Funny coincidence - just rejected our 2008 Aussie Mountain Top lot. 
It was initially fine, and the aromatics seemed good, but as it 
cooled this really off plastic-y aftertaste came out - really bad. I 
think they might have vacuum packed the coffee when it was too wet. 
Drat.

Slinkster, I've been very happy with the Kona at a C+ to FC roast.  No
second crack.  Nice mellow flavor.  Happy roasting!

Oh what a dissapointment! I've been thinking about the Aussie Mountain Top
the last fe days - wondering if/when you would get some. That has been one
of my favorites in the past.

Hey, I'm also still dreaming about Panama La Gesha Esmeralda and  
Puerto Rico Yauco Selecto.
Just ordered another fiver of Monkey--and am drinking the last of my  
Rocket Fuel blend (alas, no more Mysore Nuggets available and I just  
used up the last of my robusta). Ordered some more robusta and  
Monsooned Malabar Elephant too. Meanwhile, by Sun. I'll be halfway  
through my Rocket Fuel and the Monkey and the other components won't  
arrive till at least Thurs., so tomorrow I'll throw together some  
separately roasted batches of Brazil Poco Fundo, Yemen Mokha Sana'ani,  
a little Sumatra Classic Mandheling and at least a couple of fistfuls  
of Java Monsooned Arabica.  Because of the lack of robusta, it'll be  
more like e85 than rocket fuel, though, so I'll just have to drink  
twice as much of it. Dirty job, but......
