'Lighter side of life' Interest (LSOL)

Recommended Posts

Just starting a thread to gauge interest for a similar club to our veritable DSOL, I am fully aware that many on here prefer a more subtle roast profile to their beans and o lot of roasters that I speak to are keen to explore lighter roasting, therefore if you are willing to subscribe to a three month £60 subscription, please put your name on the list below, remember chocolates and nuts lovers beware!!

If it gets going I am happy to handle cash etc on this one as I do for DSOL. BUT I won't be participating.

 

Not my scene.

The shiny side of life?

 

You got it! The knack is to know when to hit the cool button on the Gene to get the beans dark and shiny without burning them - and I've chucked a fair bit of charcoal away over the 20yrs I've been roasting! One reason why I got shot of all my greens and went back to one single bean which has been my favourite for at least ten years now!!

One single bean - Which is?


Lots of everything: machines, grinders, roaster, beans, tampers, baskets, blah, blah

However - Too much is never enough!

Thanks John. If I either run out of greens or fancy a change then I most certainly will. It's hard to find a really dark bean! They do look glossy on their website but not too dark. I expect that half-a-kilo is worth a punt!

David you might like Exchange Coffee's Sulawesi Kalossi it's a very dark roast, bordering on too dark for my tastes.


Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment. Because you have to deal with everyone that doesn't have it !!!

Sorry to 'butt in' but coffeechap is trying to find out interest in starting a lighter roast group LSOL & we seem to be going well off topic.
