Roasting Guatemala Las Delicias, part II
(Also see my blog about the last of the 40 batches roasting these beans)
|Roast profile of the batch in the above video
Last year I had one of the first bags from the farm of Manolo Muralles.
This year I was able to buy another bag of this origin (€ 9,77 / kg ex VAT) and I look forward to the adventures.
The beans smell wonderful and look very well processed and sorted.

on his EG-1 grinder and his STRIETMAN lever machine

|Erik writes, 27 Oct 2017: "Had some time again today to test your beans. Incredibly soft and tasteful. Still complex with a spicy aftertaste. Absolutely no unwanted taste or aftertaste. In my view very a successful roast."
