Topic: Burundi Kirimiro Teka (6 msgs / 124 lines)
1) From: Michael Baladi
Anyone get any of this? Have any luck with it?
I couldn't stand the smell of it. Smelled like a certain quasi legal weed to me, all the time. In my cup, when grinding.
I tried several different roasts and could only make it go away by roasting way further than I normally like.
Tom said it was floral....... But that's not what I envisioned.

PS. Sorry if this comes through multiple times, email's giving me problems......

I'm pulling from memory here (notes at home), but I've dug it pretty well.
 I tend to heavier bodied brews.  IIRC, mine would have been FC most
likely.  I need to roast a batch tonight, so maybe I'll drop the Burundi in
and see if I get anything similar.
How much rest did you give the roast?  Brew methods, or did you get that
far?

It was definitely strongest in the first week. I had one batch that rested for something like 8 or 10 days and I found it drinkable. Anything sooner than that and the smell just drove me crazy.
My roast was pretty much full heat until first crack (somewhere in the 13 minute range to first) and then backing off and coasting along for just shy of 3 minutes past the start of first before cooling down. Second should have began around 3:30 or 4 past the start of first.
Most of it was brewed in a Technivorm using the fill/stir method.

I used a Hot Top on auto and it was great. I like the Africans, all of them
from wild beans to...
while I was not treated with floral it was a wonderful up. I used as SO
espresso.
