What's in your cabinet?

You guys seem to have pretty good taste... One of you guys, I forget who, posted that the Eight 'o Clock Colombian was pretty good, so I picked some up today. It's pretty good - not my favorite, but definitely drinkable. Kinda has what seems to me to be a "vintage" or "old-fashioned" flavor - like, what I expect the average cup 'o joe tasted like from a diner or something, back in the '60s. Kinda a sharp, "bright" edge to it.

Anyway, here's my stash. Had to put my favorite mug in there, ha ha

Nice stash.

I'm drinking Blasón espresso grind/roast through an Aeropress now, I picked up a sack of La Finca Chiapas espresso grind/roast on Tuesday for when the Blasón runs out.

When I'm in America I like to drink Café La Llave roasted by some ex-Cubans from Miami. (Comes in a light green can kind of like your Chock Full 'O Nuts can)

I saw the Cafe Bustelo espresso at Wal-Mart earlier. Thought about buying some. You don't drink the espresso variety?

I roast my own.. order up 66lb bags of Bolivian coffee.
usually grade A or AA


usually the problem with store bought is its old and dried up..

also ground coffee loses over half its aromatics in under 48hours.

so Fresh Roasted whole bean between 3days and 6 weeks is usually best.

Fresh coffee Looks like this when you are brewing.


Roaster.. dont mind the beat up stand smile its better than the crusty card table I was using previously

Wow...

I'd love to smell those beans roasting! I bet your neighbors wonder where that smell comes from!

What kind of $$$ are we talkin' for a roaster like that?

Blasón and La Finca are widely available in Mexico, but not exported.

Café La Llave can be mail ordered from Cuban food internet stores. I would think any brick & mortar Cuban goods store should have it in stock. I've never seen it in a Mexican food store, at least not in the Washington/Oregon area.

To me all three are delicious. I don't particularly care for the Café Bustelo mentioned above, it is another Cuban-style coffee.

There are some stores around here that cater to Hispanics. I'll have to check them out.

The beans roasting actually smell like slightly burnt popcorn.. its not really "pleasant" until after they sit for a couple hours.
The coffee says new york because its imported by the container load (for grade A) and packaged here.
yes the color is correct its wood colored until roasted.

Scale I use to measure batches. If you are 1oz off it can be as much as 1-2min difference.


Coffee Pot is a moccamaster technivorm, Grinder is a Breville conical burr grinder.BCG800XL

Both are Top of the line.
If I had to buy a coffee pot right now I'd get this one
http://www.behmor.com/brazen.php


The roaster Is a behmor 1600 its the cheapest available that roasts a decent amount (12-15oz) they go for 300$ with 20$ of coffee free(about 280$net)

http://www.behmor.com/behmor-1600.php
the next step up costs close to 1000$

there are smaller air roasters for $150$ but they roast 5oz or so.
