About this coffee:

Screen size: SHB, 18.
Acidity: Medium to high.
Body: Medium & velvety.
Flavour: Neutral and balanced, fruits, citrus notes.
Roast: Medium to dark.

Originates in the northern region of The Central Valley, at approximately 1,200-1,500 metres above sea level. The rich fertile soil produces a bean with rich, but neutral characteristics, making it an excellent blend. Rounded and with full body, with a slight delicate fruity finish.

How to roast:

There are a number of ways to roast these at home.
For the serious hobbyist, purchase a professional roasting machine for a few hundred dollars and follow the instructions.

If you wish to ‘dabble’ and roast on the cheap with excpetional results, we recommend one of the following methods:

1. Buy a popcorn machine.
Put about 50-70g of raw beans inside and turn it on.
In 5 to 10 minutes or so you will have a great result (depending on the brand/heat of the machine).

2. Use a deep metal mixing bowl and clamp a heat gun to a retort stand (or hold in your hand).
Make sure that the beans are in constant movement (swirling around the container).
Note: Hairdryers are not suitable – they are not hot enough.

Hint: Do this outside as the chaff will blow everywhere.

DOCUMENTATION & EXPERIMENTATION are the key to consistent results.
You need to do this for EVERY origin of bean, as the different origins have different sizes and different moisture contents
