I brewed two cups of the Gesha today, one a pour over using the Kone and the other in the Aeropress. The best way to describe Gesha is "effervescent." Even though I way over-roasted, it still retains the same mouth feel as the best sparkling water. Unfortunately, the floral/fruit qualities were subdued due to my poor roast. Still good cups, just not outstanding as I have come to expect from Gesha.
Exactly what I think of the Submariner being worn by people who never get wet unless it rains or a Daytona/Speedmaster being worn by people whose mode of transport is of the public variety.
Apropos of nothing other than my incessant curiosity, I really like the Pita Barcelona dive watches as the ultimate alternative to a Submariner. 2000m and 5000m options.
The new + panel for my Behmor has started my learning curve again. I hammered a roast of Gesha this morning. I was targeting 15% weight loss (City-City+) and got 17% (Full City-Full City+). I would usually be fine with 17%, but Gesha is the one varietal that everyone says should not get anywhere near 2nd crack. I will find out in a couple of days how it impacts the flavor.
None more black (gray?).
Thanks for visiting!
Yes, I can.Just because you have not experienced it does not mean it is impossible.
A good roaster can achieve that balance across a wide variety of subjective palates.
When both are present without either one dominating at the expense of the other.
My emphasis.
