With this last batch and with a previous 5lbs I haven’t found a solid profile. Do do feel like I have less understanding with washed processed beans and double so with low density beans. I feel like denser beans follow the profile more closely where low density lags behind from where I want/expect transitions to happen.
For this bean it is low density and low grown. With the sample profile I was able to get the “bubblegum” note faintly but the other nuances were lost to me. It was also interesting to note that this bean (and some others) got darker with more heat required and also tasted better going darker and able to get a fruity passion fruit note. But I cant find that “origin” note like the blueberry from the Ethiopian DP. I guess the processing over there is perhaps more consistent than other places.
Does anybody have any profiles, suggestions? Below are listed the last three profiles I tried on this bean the Marshal Etheo PNG I roasted and brewed today, it has a good mouthfeel and fades between a fudge bar and dark cacao powder. Moisture loss was 20%, roast level was just under 2C on the roasty-er side of FC
