Topic: Nicaraguan L. E. Java Longberry as Turkish & ibrik (36 lines)
1) From: Paul Helbert
Dagnabit! I was all set to order five or ten pounds of this stuff and then
found that it is a different crop. I made a fantastic ibrik full from the
last of my June 2007 beans. Does anyone know how the new crop, (May 2008)
compares? If it is about the same, I want more.
The roast was to C+ in the Behmor (374 grams, P2, 16 minutes with 2.5
minutes added after start, 105VAC first 8 minutes, then 127VAC to finish,
1st cx at 16:15 - 17:30, door mostly open from 17:30 - 18:30, cool initiated
at 18:30. Ambient 68F, final mass 314 g. More smoke than I'm used to seeing
during 1st cx.
Immediately ground 18 g fine as powder and brewed Turkish style in my pretty
new 12 oz painted ibrik with one level tablespoonful of sugar. The milk
chocolate flavor was amazing! I usually don't use sugar, even for Turkish,
but will try it again.
Interesting thing happened to the bottom of the ibrik. Bottom got gummy and
patches look like bright clean new copper, but other areas look dull. I
brewed over a low gas flame. Cleaned with hot water and dish cloth using
Dawn as detergent. Has anyone else had a similar occurrence? This thing is
so pretty and SM says it is functional. Do you suppose my stove could have a
reducing flame? That might explain the bright patches, but what about the
gummy stuff?
