Homeroasting has some definite benefits: when you need coffee, you have it. Last night, some significant thunderstorms kept me indoors, so I couldn’t replenish my stash. So, the morning task was to roast a bean that stood up well to a short rest, so I grabbed some Zambia Lupili Estate. There’s something about many of the Central African beans – they do so well on short rests, like the perennial favorite – Uganda Bugisu.
I took a batch of Zambia to just shy of 2nd, a good Full City (a 12 or 13 on this chart), ground about 30 minutes later, and brewed in the Chemex. Wonderful! Smooth, nutty and slightly sweet. Good coffee for an instantaneous gratification.
Solo Deo Gloria,
