It's only 60-70 roasts so only 20 hours ;)

Starting to look at larger volumes of beans and even whole bags (60kg each) makes my stash seem tiny. So going to need more storage capacity first I think equivalent to 4-6 bags worth. :doh:

 :o firstly my 60'ish kg has grown, bred or blown out to 98kg after a final audit so :doh: it does pay to keep track.

35 Varietals, 98kg, approximate overall value of a little over $1500 plus freight (blame the high average on the Geisha ;) ) thanks to my quick and dirty spreadsheet.

Better get my roast on  :thumb:

Everyone describes it differently. Some say it just tastes like an unwiped bottom, others would call it buttery, yes. Very high oil, and a bit funky (I like it. (The bean that is, not unwiped bottom).

Also described as wet dog shoe flavour, when roasted badly.

I like to stick 10% - 15% in my blends. Really adds something to it I believe.

You guys are crazy. or full of beans!

so name a good stand-out SO that cuts through milk.

Not picking on you C-Man, but again I see an example of the term "cut through milk".

If there is ever a term that is over-used and in many cases mis-used, it has to be that old chessnut saying "cut through milk". Generally, people see it mentioned and they think it's the way to describe what they want in a coffee.

But really folks - what does it actually mean ?

Is it a flavor that does not get lost when milk is added ?

Is it a body that shows through with milk ?

Is it a sparkling, bright, well-balanced acid level that mixes nicely to produce a refreshing, enjoyable milk-based espresso ?

Applying the term "cut through milk" is misleading without more descriptors.

Is it strong, chocolate, caramel, malt, nutty, fruity, winey, citric......most people just want a rich, smooth, creamy, sweet coffee with a lingering finish. Now how does that match "cut through milk" ?.

People use it to sound knowledgeable and experienced (please, I'm not meaning to offend or insult anyone) and one person's thought of a cut through milk surely cannot and will not match another person's own individual preferences.

As a roaster - it means absolutely nothing to me and when I get people calling up asking for a great coffee that cuts through milk......I need to count to 10 before responding.

When it comes to single origins, saying bean X will cut through milk better than bean Y is really quite misleading.

It depends upon the bean varietal, processing (read quality), roast profile and last but by no means least, the ability of the person brewing and extracting. I can take just about any arabica and make it cut through milk - damn it, now I'm unable to stop saying it. :head:

that last post has me thinking. I am more interested in the obverse (or is it converse?). I look for beans that provide a well balanced cup just as coffee. i.e. don't taste shite as a short/long black.
When I see the description 'cuts through milk', I avoid those beans.

I can roast and brew all the green beans in my stash myself to meet this requirement, but most cafes seem to find it hard to deliver a pleasant cup of  coffee unless it is as a coffee flavoured milk beverage. Many commercial roasts, while consistent,  are just consistently shite as straight coffee.:stir Catering to the market I guess.

I do have to say though that I was surprised at the quality of coffee I had in Sydney recently, most was excellent , including the filter roasted el limoncillo I bought for home consumption.

I think many people use 'cuts through milk'  as an alternative to 'high in acid'

Yeah, I went a bit crazy buying beans a couple of years ago. The oldest beans are just starting to get to the three year old mark. The Sumatra Mandheling has changed flavour slightly, but not to drastically. Hopefully I'll be under 50kg of green by the time the end of the year comes around. When I get the stash back down below 40kgs I'll start thinking about buying some more.

Thanks for the welcome Brett!
Yeah, might've gotten a little carried away...  I do like to keep my options open  ;).
Actually it can be a little counter productive at times, I can spend more time trying to decide what to roast than actually roasting  :-| .

I can't wait to see some of your blends  :thumb:
I'll be sure to share when I think I have something worthy.  Still mainly working on identifying what works for me and what doesn't, so I expect (hope  :angel:?) that the number of individual coffees will diminish slightly over time.
