Poison, my wife is hooked on Starbucks Sumatra. What do you suggest to satisfy her taste? (I will order from your website).

Ok, I'm a believer... Roast method makes at least as much different as roast level...

Back when I was roasting with an air roaster (Freshroast 300) my wife preferred the South American coffees. Said the African coffees, specifically the Ethiopians, were too muddy, and enjoyed the brightness of the south and Central Americans. With the new drum roaster, Gene Café, suddenly I am getting crazy amounts of berry flavors in my Ethiopian coffees and the brightness in the Americans are going beyond that to Meyer lemon. Now I need to figure out how to get that dialed back in the south and central American coffees. I am still taking most of my African coffees all the way to FC/FC+... And most of the South American coffees to City+ range (all of this based on colors I am finding all over the place on the web...)

One question to poison... Would lowering temp and extending the roast on the South Americans make this better or worse? Just trying to take some of the acid edge off of these...

Also, to any home roasters out there, if you are not trying the Sweet Maria's espresso workshop series, you are doing yourself a huge disservice. I have hit each generation from 13-26 and they are all awesome and are a very good showcase for different flavors and styles.

Of course it does. Air roasters can do very well, but it's very, very difficult, and hard to get the development you can achieve with a drum roaster.

Yes, lengthening the roast time will reduce acidity. Try stretching the time between first and second crack, or time after first if you aren't hitting second. I generally lower the temp at the first sign of second crack or thereabouts, but it varies on bean, and desired purpose.

Bumping for a possible stupid question.

Thinking of switching from tea to coffee for my morning pick-me-up, so I'm curious: What would be the best/cheapest (probably erring towards the "cheapest") way to make a single cup of coffee at a time? Tiny french press? I have a big one at home, but I doubt it would work with 8oz of water or whatever. Small drip machine?

French press would work
Pour-over, "Clever Coffee Dripper"
Aeropress

I have one of each. Usually use the Clever for hot cups, Aeropress for iced coffee. French press gets used more for tea, except I'm using the Clever for that too.

I don't know (doubt) that a drip machine of good quality can be found for twice the price of any manual option listed above.

aeropress.

Picked one up a couple of weeks ago. Skeptical at first, but warming up to it.

Ideal for a single albeit smaller (10-12oz) mug of coffee.

still trying to figure out the best way to make 2 cups out of it.

I prefer it to the pourover for a single cup. Still think that the best cup (but most work) is french press + filter.

The Aeropress tends to make stronger coffee, so if you're transitioning from tea that may be a bigger jump than you want. Also, while a French press may be the most cleanup of those three options, it's certainly not bad. I tend to think that it's just as easy as a drip machine. We have a tiny French press on loan from my mother-in-law which is handy to have around.

AllAWD what's your iced coffee method with the Aeropress? That would be tasty times as the weather gets warmer.

Been using the aeropress for a while now. You can make 3 shots in it and divide up as needed. I usually make a double shot and then turn that into an americano. Suits my needs very well.

Edit: it says "4" on the side, but I have never maxed it out.

I prefer the clever, without question. Also buy a hand grinder or blade grinder.

You could always water down the Aeropress coffee post pressing...though I never do.

I went with this ice coffee method: http://coffeegeek.com/guides/aeropresscoldbrew

CN:30g of coffee for 150g (ml) water, brew 60s, and press into glass full of ice.

maxed out it makes about 3/4 of a mug of coffee. I max it out, let it drain till about 3/4 of the way down and then fill it to the top for a single mug.

For 2 mugs (wife takes 2nd) I make one, add slightly more grounds and press.
