I've been playing with blends.  Here's one that's working well for me.

140 gram batch, roasted in iRoast2

70g Brazil (dry)
20g Sumatra Mandheling (semi dry)
20g Yirgacheffe (wet)
20g Colombia el Choco (Sweet Marias) (wet)
10g Mexico Nayarita (wet)

This blend seems to do well with or without milk.

Ive roasted all of Sweet Maria's espresso blends and they are absolutely fantastic...as long as you don't overroast them. I have a Nesco home roaster and it does the job ( though in the future I'll get something in which I can regulate temp). Also, if anyone ever has a chance of getting pheonix coffee ( here in Cleveland ) yes they do have a website, they have a absolutely wonderful blonde espresso roast that is unique.

No offense really; but the first thing that came to mind was; something sounds paradoxical.



I know you donít do the commercial roasting...Being facetious

I imagine is would seem paradoxical but commerical roasting will never beat roasting in micro batches..the quality in micro batches is just too superior.

Though I am employed by Starbucks my coffee passion and education go beyond the commercial coffee chain. I try to keep informed with what is happening outside the corporate coffee world to give me the often broader sense of what is happening outside of Starbucks culture.

2 parts Monsooned Malabar (on P3 with 10-12 ounces on the 1 pound setting, use "-" to start with 16:00 and add 4:00 at 3:00 remaining, allow C2 to really get going strongly and don't hit the cool button until you see smoke starting to come from the door seal and afterburners - and not the wispy smoke either)

Jon,
How much of a light show do you get when you run that far into C2?

LOL

It's just that I found that the Monsooned coffee wants to fool me with my preferred extended profile on the Behmor. When I pull the roast at the first wispy wisps eminating from the afterburner then it's too light to develop the character I want.

I actually pull the roast just as the smoke turns sweeter. And since the Monsooned coffee is very low chaffe it doesn't spark up at all.  :-)

I have also (since) discovered that I can add the time anytime after starting the roast and it lengthens the final leg.

Jon,  (skills aside :-)  does the Monsooned Malabar contribute strongly to the creme in some of those wonderful looking shots of yours?

I think the monsooned coffee may make the crema a bit darker/reddish-brown but any fresh-roasted coffee should produce shots that are mostly crema.  I recently got some cool glass espresso demitasse cups (from the nespresso.com website) and I have been intending to take some pics of pours.....

Hopefully soon!  



Here's a tease of the Nespresso Cups (love the cups - hate the capsules)
