Fresh Coffee!

First fresh coffee after a pound of Starbucks. Flavor! Body! My Espresso is Alive Again!

Flavor! Body! My Espresso is Alive Again!
Wow what a difference! I wouldn't have thought so much. I think the Starbucks espresso roast was one of their poorer batches and the Java Kajumas Organic Taman Dadar was a good pick by me and Sweet Maria's, roasted very nicely to Full City - City ++ (pat myself on the back here).

The roast was about 18:30 in the gene cafe home roaster (click for more info). That took the beans to 2nd crack and first visual oil. Coasted nicely to finish at a good spot. Browns and dark browns color. No visual oil after cooling. Finising weight about 7 oz. (green weight 8 oz.)

Ground beans provided good volume and the espresso brewed with ample crema, which I believe is one characteristic of fresh roasted coffee. (Click here to read CoffeeGeek on Crema Brewing time about12-13 seconds and the result so much better than plain old Starbucks. If you're not roasting your own, you should be!
