I currently have the following:

Ethiopian sidoma
Colombian Sierra Nevada
Sumatra mandheling
Peru nanijjaro(don't know how it's spelled)

Any advice on a espresso recipe from these would be helpful or any info at all! New to espresso!

Thanks

Welcome to CoffeeGeek!

Since espresso is rather a brewing method than a specific type or roast of coffee beans, you can make espresso from any kind of beans. It's just that some beans taste better than others as espresso. There's only one way to find out: go ahead and brew some. That's part of the fun.

It is interesting that you mention those varieties as I just popper roasted and blended similar beans today. I'm trying 50% Columbian (from Rao's), 30% Sumatra gayo linge (from Esselon), and 20% Ethiopian sidamo (fair trade from Esselon).

Typical espresso blends often include a Brazil (50%), a Sumatra (40%) and some Ethiopian 10%(often harrar or yirgecheffe).

How did your blend turn out? I won't know about mine until tomorrow, after they have degassed a bit.

I have been looking for a list of possible bean combinations for a full flavored espresso. I'll look over on the roasting forum.

All the best, Frank
