Steve,

I just got 2 lbs of the Lekempti today (along with 22 lbs of other coffees) so I haven't roasted it yet, but those that have, have really liked it.  I will probably be roasting it tomorrow.  Let me know how yours turns out and I will share my experience as well.

 
Respectfully,

Enjoy the new TV.  Good beans will reward you, while poor or old beans will be punished by the Dutch master!

Keep us posted on your roast.

Bob,
        are you using the Stainless vacpot or the glass model?i am not very pleased with the TV,i dont like having to brew into the thermos with the lid off,this causes temp to be lost from the get go.I will give it another go but i will say this,my in cup temperature is no wamer  than my Capresso vac pot,and it is alot less money,i will prolly send it back.

That is why I don't care for coffee makers with the thermal carafe's ... I have not found one that will keep the coffee hot.  This is why I bought the Technivorm Moccamaster CD and as soon as the coffee is brewed, it goes into a Thermos Nissan Stainless Steel Thermos that keeps the brew hot all day long.

Steve,

I will be roasting the Lekempti today / this evening.  Tell me how you roasted the Lekempti and to what degree relative to 1st and 2nd crack.  My understanding of that coffee is that you should have really liked it or not ... nothing in the middle.

I do NOT have the Technivorm with the thermal carafe.  I have the Moccamaster CD with a glass carafe and it is light-years ahead of my old Mr. Coffee that my sister-in-law now has and loves ... go figure.  The little inner lip on the underside of the carafe's funnel lid does cause a serious mess when pouring, but I apply a little pressure with my thumb that bearly lifts the lid and that problem goes away.  I use either a genuine Swissgold filter or paper filters (Filtropa or Melitta with pinholes) depending on the mood and how much of a hurry I am in.  When using the paper filters, I have gotten into the habit of putting the filter into the filter holder, filling it with water, waiting a few seconds and dumping it out; it cuts down on the paper taste.

Ok, ithought you had the Stainless vac type,i have two other machines that brew into insulated carafes,both of them deliver a hotter cup,it just kills the concept of having to brew into an open container.....terrible design.

The Lekempi i roasted pretty conventional for the C/G   462  start till first crack,reduced a little temp ,pulled before 2nd crack as thats too dark for me(looking for max fruit)

it only rested overnight,but i can tell what iam looking for is not there on this roast...i will try the Idido misty valley tonight and see how that fairs

Steve,

Sometimes you gotta give some of these Ethiopians up to 5 days to come alive.  They can change dramatically between day 3 and day 5 and then wane quickly by day 7.  I roasted the Idido Misty Valley a little lighter and the change form day 3 to day 5 was incredible.

Hmmm,thats interesting Eddie,I notice usually a peak with Harar(usually in day 2 0r 3) but usually not after that,usually the quanity i roast last four or five days being that i always think small on what i keep on hand roasted.I like to roast often and learn and enjoy doin it.

Speakin of Misty,did it hold any fruit or unusual character?
