First Taste Test from the Coffee Guinea Pigs!

Yesterday I had the pleasure to drop-in on three coffee enthusiasts who responded to my invitation to be coffee guinea pigs. I roasted an Ethiopian Horse Harrar and was curious how regular coffee drinkers would like it.

These beans were roasted to a medium (City +) roast and brewed in a press. They were served cooler than I would have liked, but that’s what happens when you  serve coffee in a to-go cup!

Actually, serving coffee at a temperature of 170 degrees may be a good thing in that the full flavor can be savored when a drinker isn’t worried about getting burned!

Today I plan to make it out to four coffee guinea pigs with an Indian Mysore roasted to a Vienna roast.
