Hello to one and all. Welcome to the December 2018 R & L Thread!
Bean: Ethiopia Agaro Biftu Gudina Coop https://www.sweetmarias.com/ethiopia-ag ... -2018.html
Detail: 89.5, Wet Process, Heirloom Varieties, 15+ Screen
Tasting Notes (from SM): notes of peaches, natural dried apricots, sarsaparilla and cola sodas, marmalade, and a subtle floral aroma. City to Full City. good for espresso
I chose, well we chose this coffee. But I liked it because unlike the other Ethiopians I have been roasting, the peach and dried apricots seemed much different and nicer to me than just more blueberries. I know, I know, so spoiled are we that they should churn us into butter and put us in the coffee. Anyways I will be trying to roast this coffee with the goal of trying to push the TDS as high as I can go with getting the notes above. I prefer to roast to a FC, FC+ but for this coffee I will really try to get a well developed City-City+ profile. And I will be reporting my good cuppings (and maybe some bad ones) along with the complimentary profile. I struggle with Wet Processed coffee's so this should be a very informative experience for me, and I hope it is for you too. Happy Roasting and looking forward to great cups, Cheers!
