Wednesday, June 21, 2006

I've been drinking the Brazil Carmo Estate Peaberry that I roasted last week, had a couple of french presses of it at the office, it wasn't that good in the press, in particular when hot it had a slight acidic off taste, it went away as it cool, but I found it off putting. By far the best result was in the melitta drip where it had a great berry note. I think I fudged the vac-pot that I made of it, it didn't have the clean crisp taste that I normally get, I think I let it brew too long. (I'm still dialing in my vac-pot skills). Next time I'll be stopping the roast sooner that I did in this batch, probably try and get it just before it goes into second crack.
