Well, the first Javajeb Roasting Clinic has been established. Hopefully, this Saturday afternoon, a couple of gents from church will bounce over and we’ll roast up some java. Here’s my planned layout:
1. Grab some materials from SM’s vast holdings and print a few out for reference.
2. Select two beans, with enough for three roasts each. One will be decaf for immediate consumption, on regular for later use by the attendees.
3. Brew the decaf in three different devices. I’m thinking French Press, Vacuum Pot, and Chemex. Those are the easiest, most approachable and inexpensive ways to get a good cup. I also have a Moka Pot and ibrik, but have yet to master either.
As for #1, I’m thinking a brew sheet for each device and a roaster guide for a popper.
Thoughts on other things? pictorial roast degree chart? et cetera?
Solo Deo Gloria,
