I was thinking about the Ethiopian Koratie DP, as the subject line
indicates!! Anyway, I was curious about people's roast levels for this
coffee. I really enjoy this coffee, and am inspired by Seth's raves in
another post. So I would like to hear some input from people who have
enjoyed this coffee as much as I have. What have people enjoyed about this
coffee? What roast level have you taken it to? I'd be interested to see
how different people have been enjoying this coffee.
I have recorded 2 roasts with my new roasting setup, both are 275g roasts
(which yields 1/2lb in the end).
My first roast, first crack occurred at 9:30 at 400F. I stretched the roast
to 12:55 and dropped at 420F, and I was calling it C.
Second roast, first crack was 400F also, but at 8:55. The end of roast was
4 minutes later, at 12:55, at 434F. A solid C+.
I really enjoyed both roasts. The first lacked body but was really singing
with fruited berry flavors. The second roast had more body but more muted
flavors. I think I would call it "jammy", more of a mix of flavors.
When I roast this again, I will be shooting for a drop temp of about
425-427. Maybe the best of both worlds.
How have others roasted this coffee? What did you really like about it?
I can't wait to hear about your experiences. Thanks to Seth for his
enthusiasm. I ordered my fiver a couple of weeks ago...
