New coffee! Kenya Nyeri AB Gatomboya :cf1 Roasted 13 hours ago to FC, drip, SO. I love the twang of a good Kenyan and this one has it. Reminds me of the twang in Cuban cigars :2 It's juicy and sweet, with a long citrus finish that is loaded with grapefruit. Really nice cup! So glad to be drinking something new :noon from SM
On a side note, it is an interesting challenge to drip brew a pot of coffee when it is this fresh. The bloom wants to rise right out of the coffee maker.

So I've come to the conclusion that I don't like Starbucks coffee. Had a few while out of town as its the only decent cup in Buenos Aires. And that's not saying much.

Found the order from GCBC on my doorstep when I got home from work this morning. I quickly opened the box and immediately fired up 12 oz of Ethopian Sidamo Natural to FC+. Gonna roast 12 oz more shortly. :tu

Pressed a pot of Monkey blend before church, was awful :confused: don't know if it was tap water, old beans, what, but it was bad.
Dripped a pot of Kenyan when we got home and it was very good. Not as good as yesterday, but very good.

So, what's everyone's take on optimum window of resting time after roasting? I find myself often roasting for the next day but thought if try to get ahead of the game a bit.

Re: COFFEE: What are you drinking?
 
Varies from coffee to coffee. Some are rocking good at 12 hours, others seem to peak from 36 to 48. Bottom line is, you don't want it to get too old, a week at tops for me. Usually no more than 4-5 days.

I'm with Bob. I like to try them at all different stages of rest. They really change alot in the first 1-3 days. I like to roast enough that will last me about 5 days, 7 at the most. Also, some beans take a longer rest, better. Sumatra's do well with the 3 days of rest, where the Costa Ricans (to me) are better with 1-2 days of rest.
I usually roast (for myself) 4 different 1/4 lb batches and rotate through them each day during the week.

Broke my $20 Bodem Press this morning :mad:. Second one in about a year. The glass is so dang thin. It just tipped over (empty) and completely smashed on the counter.
Sooooo, coffee this morning in the ol Dripper. Sumatra Toba Batak Peaberry at FC. Very tasty. Notes of Vanilla and baking spice.
