Brazil FTO Poco Fundo Peaberry
This week we are roasting a nice lot of Peaberry from the Poco Fundo cooperative. This is a well established co-op that has good years, and not so good years. We took this week's roast to the Full City level, final thermoprobe temperature of 439 degrees. I did mix in a little that was roasted a few degrees more to make certain that the fruity aspects of the cup are balanced with a chocolate roast flavor. I didn't enter second crack at all so we are still talking about Full City here. I did do slightly larger batches this week and the roast times reflect this increase coming in at about 16 minutes on average. In general we've been trying to shorten roast times a little bit more lately to ensure we aren't "baking" the coffee too much. I think the results from the past few weeks have been pretty great. Hope you all agree!
