Roaster exploration series
We’re excited to launch our new coffee series: Roaster Exploration Series. In our inaugural box, we are roasting our Brazil Sundried two different ways. This coffee is a clean, complex natural. By approaching the roast style from different angles, we are able to highlight all the complexities and flavor nuances this coffee offers.
For those coffee geeks, below is the comparative roast graph. Every degree/second shift dramatically impacts the coffee flavor. For the Light Roast, we go hard and fast to drive the heat into the core of the beans. The Rate of Rise (RoR) is the jagged graph and the Bean Temperature is the more even line. The RoR is the speed of the temperature change in the bean. Here is a great article explaining why RoR is important: Rate of Rise article.
We traditionally develop our Brazil coffee a little more to give it a deeper, heavier body and to mute the wild fruit. It is considered one of our darker coffees. However, we started to play around with a lighter profile and were amazed at how different the flavor profiles were. As a lighter roast, the sundried aspects really shine: earthy, fruit cocktail, cedar.
Brew Method Recommendations
Since these coffees are so different, initially brewing them the same way. This way, you can really see how the roast impacts the flavor. Then, we recommend the Dark version in a french press (1:12 ratio) and the Light version in a pour over (1:15 ratio).
