Ethiopia Yirgacheffe G2 Organic Rainforest Alliance comes to us from the Boji Kochere washing station, in the Kochere district of Gedeo zone. The coffee is a collection of the efforts of 2564 smallholder farmers. Their coffee is handpicked at peak ripeness and machine pulped, and undergoes anaerobic fermentation before washing. Finally, as is typical to the region, the coffee is sundried on raised beds for seven to ten days depending upon sun and humidity.

I roasted this one to mid first crack. Being a Yirgacheffe I was expecting it to have a blueberry flavor as a light roast. Surprisingly, there's really no hint of blueberry. Still fruity though. I think it's got a hint of blackberry and maybe raspberry along with a toasty butter note. It's different, and it's a nice coffee. I would order it again when I want a change of pace.

Using a Fresh Roast 540, I had uneven results. Going for a lighter roast, gradually bringing the temp up to 405ish, with mid crack at just shy of 8 minutes. There are an unusual number of quakers and just plain shriveled beans. It may be fine, but it seems to be mid quality, especially for an Ethiopian. If I read it correctly, it is a blend of many small producers product, which may explain the uneven quality.

I’m using a iKawa Roaster 100gram capacity to roast these beans. I am unable to tweak the temperature on the spot so I have to use a few grams as the test bed. Initially it heats up to 500° F then drops to 350° F, with a climb to 458°F. The roast ends at 7 minutes. Roast comes out somewhat chocolatey and a hint of some mild fruit. Not quite light and fruity as I want. I am by no means a pro at roasting. I hope i can nail it one day. I enjoy my freshly roasted coffee In The morning.

UPDATE: I found that brewing this bean of the same roast level at a lower water temp improves the taste a lot. I used 87c temp instead of my usual hotter temp. Pretty good, but still lacks a lot of the expected fruitiness. Pretty good daily drinker though.

Roasted just short of 2c, a couple minutes past 1c, on a Fresh Roast SR 800 with Razzo extension. Final roast time 8:10 with bean temp 428. I am a big fan of Ethiopians but this one was just a little short of flavor. I rank it at above supermarket coffee though. It seems like a pretty dense, heavy bean and I'll try roasting it to 2c next time in the search for the best flavor in the cup. Its a pretty good cup now, but I wanted it to really impress me. lol
