So I got back to work this morning, to where all my |
coffee brewing equipment resides, and was able to taste
the results of my coffee roasting for the first time.
The result, while OK, is definately not as good as I
was hoping for.
Even though the coffee beans are very dark, almost black
(one of my fears is that I roasted them to much ... is that
possible?), the resulting coffee is kind of thin.
But even tho its thin, it still has a lot of flavor.
A regular coffee that looks this thin to me would have
almost no flavor. Flavor wise, this is fairly high
I really like very dark coffee, so this is not it.
I'm not sure yet what the deal is.
Could it be the beans used?
Could it be I need to use much more per cup
than I normally do?
Did I roast them to much?
Did I roast them not enough?
But this first attempt has given me great expectations
at what I can do if I perfect my techniques.
