Topic: El Salvador Manzano Process Experiment (3 msgs / 70 lines)
1) From: sci
I just ordered the El Salvador Manzano Process Experiment and eagerly await
completing the experiment in my cup.
I know that processing is supposed to be the second most important factor
influencing flavor (over origin) but I'm already leaning toward it being
just as important as origin. The only other coffee I remember getting two
processes from the same lot was the Koratie DP/WP and the difference was
huge.
Now I'm just trying to figure out how to roast this in such a way as to not
introduce another variable. I'm thinking of using my IR2 to roast three
1/4lb batches to precisely the same roast level (probably C+) and then doing
1/2lb batches in the B1600 the same way. Problem is that neither of those
roasters are good for back to back batches. I might just have to break the
rules on this one.
Any thoughts or ideas?

I roast back to back with the Behmor on a regular basis, if I'm really
cranking I can get 3 roasts/hour.
Why couldn't you roast back to back with the Behmor?

I think you are right - process favors trump varietal flavor and 
other qualities in coffee because of origin. I think Manzano shows 
that it's more than just an overlay of process flavor on top of other 
qualities. For example, the acidity in the Pulped Natural and the 
Natural is definitely muted ... so process is affecting acidity or at 
least the way it is perceived.
I would definitely try to roast them all the same, and think the IR2 
with some cooling time in between is best. But check out the video 
about appearance of the roasted coffee too - the chaff color really 
affects how you perceived the darkness. I am going to paste this over 
to the forum thread on Manzano so we can track the feedback once 
people have roasted and tasted it...
