Lets talk about COFFEE - Page 70

Received another bag of beans from Oslo

AppleMark

Have no idea how Tim Wendelboe roasts beans or what he does but this is notably different than other espresso beans and all in a good way.

This is lighter than the previous bag I tried and soooo smooth. Zero bitterness, lighter mouthfeel and I taste the coffee with no inconsistency or attributes from the process of pulling the shot. Meaning it is very forgiving and consistent regardless of what is going on with the extraction. Wish this was more accessible, would use his beans all the time.

I used to like it. I hate it. Thats all.

Alright, Mr. Pavoni-expert. I can tell you this -- I have, once again, tried to store them outside the fridge. Airtight container. Cold, dark spot. One day went by and I had to adjust my Vario Home v2. Not just a fine setting or two, but three or four (which normally changes it from 25/25 to 25/0 or 25/100 in the coarser direction). Needless to say, endless calibration was in order, multiple times a day. I don't like dumping 100g of coffee per day just to get three good doppio ristretti. YMMV
The last batch of beans, I once again put in the fridge in an airtight container. Hardly any changes after a day or two in grinding settings. So... I appreciate your sentiments and you definitely state a reasonable point, but don't be offended if I use the technique that works best for me.

The beans are going to oxidize regardless, all you can really do is slow the process down as much as possible, but there are honestly so many variables within beans that they break down by themselves, in the freezer, fridge or otherwise. I think any beans kept (fridge, freezer, or otherwise) around longer than a month after the roast date aren't worth the hassle of having to recalibrate to hell and back to brew, at best, a mediocre cup.

My coworker wanted to know how many espressos I drink daily over the course of a week - Mean, Median, Mode, as well as how many sips it takes me to finish each one Mean, Median, and Mode. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!

And please compare it to the other 51 weeks of the year. If you can do it for your coworker, you can do it for me too, can't you? smile.gif

Can't wait to try it! (The mail lady said her whole van reeked of coffee!)

I live close to the super old school D'Amico roaster in Carroll Gardens. Definitely not quite as good, or trendy, as many of the roasters that have opened up lately, but I love that they have been there forever. You can walk in there and see them roasting coffee right up front, and the old Italian dudes in there always awesome.

Plus, the coffee is cheap--it's like $9/lb for their house stuff, and it's quite good.

I am right around the corner at Strong Place and Degraw. I can smell when D'Amicos roasts some days. Their Costa Rican isnt bad but prefer Stumptown's columbia el Jordan.
