I have been roasting for a few months. I find that I like Rwanda stuff from sweetmarias a lot. Most of the time I roast just into second crack. What about you all
I looooooove Ethiopian coffees. I don't think I've ever had one that I didn't like. I buy lots of others, just for the variety, but Ethiopian coffees are my hands-down favorites.
I've gotten lazy with my roasting over the years and now roast all of my beans on a custom program that I pulled from the Sweet Maria's iRoast tip sheet a long time ago.
340 for 2 minutes
390 or 400 for 3 minutes [Note: I use 390]
450 for 4 to 6 minutes [Note: I stick with 4 minutes here]
He Who Must Be O'Blade
I love Ethiopian coffee as well; WP, DP, no matter. It's all good. I'm also digging Baroida (PNG).
I like pretty much everything, as long as it's good. That having been said, my definition of good is pretty dang high.
I enjoy many different origins and roasts...I don't have just one, and I prefer some over others depending on the brew method.
Ethiopians tend to be the ones I like best and almost always have one in my order from Sweet Maria's. My most recent standout was the Yemen Ismaili. I go full city+ for most of my roasts.
