Roasted coffee Beans

 The husband and I roasted another coffee this past weekend.
This one was called Sumatra. The description for it read: Deep brooding, bass-note profile, undertone of mildly earthly dark chocolate, mango/peach hint, moderate brightness, thick body.
Your probably thinking well that sounds ok....(that's what I thought) so I picked this one out from our little stash to try and we roasted them.  You're suppose to let the beans "rest" for about a day or over night after roasting, for those who are impatient and can't wait to try it the next morning always works too! 
{It can have an effect how the coffee tastes though. In fact it might taste different from the first time you grind your beans to three days later}

So I made us some coffee the next morning.....and 
I love this coffee!! I think its gotta be a favorite for me. Keep in mind there are sooooo many factors when roasting and even brewing these beans. If you are interested go to Sweet Maria's, and you will learn all sorts of new things about coffee! 

It's pretty fun to get all sorts of different coffees from around the world and roast them yourself. It's hard to go back to drinking the stuff in the stores now. You can really taste a lot of flavors by doing this. My dad is the one that got all of us hooked on it, he's like a pro now! :) :) 


Have a wonderful day today!! :) :)
