Just tried my hand at the Gesha, lot 5. I have lots 10, 5 and 3...but
have been waiting to roast them, because I did not want to ruin them.
I gave lot 5 a shot today. 8oz in the Behmor on 1/2 lb, P3, A. I added
3 minutes after start to total of 15 min. Hit first crack very
vigorously at 3 minutes remaining. I hit cool as first crack was
slowing with 1:30 minutes remaining. Essentially hit C+.
Fired up a double shot immediately. 16-18gm coffee (2 blue SCAA
scoops), 22 sec shot. Interesting, tasted like an Ethiopian...with
citrus, but also some unusual florals and perhaps some mango (sharp
acid). I liked it...but cant say it 'beat' the DP Koratie or Org
Yirgacheffe or the Harrar Horse...more flowery flavors though.
Decided to do an aeropress also. 16-18gm coffee, filled to #3 on the
press, with 4 oz water added after. A more delicate set of similar
flavors...some of the acid bite was removed.
Cant wait to try it again after an overnight rest in the Press. Cheers.
