Had a bummer of a roast where the beans didn't crack uniformly. Sounded like only 15% of them cracked. Beans are peaberry and small so few got stuck in the Behmor AB drum mesh. All in all I took it to slight med roast and ended up tasting very, very good! Second time roasting 1st crack was drawn out sporadic but much better. Very tasty cup.
Not usually a big fan of Sumatras but saved 4 cups of this post-roast and fully appreciated that this wasn’t hype; as the saying goes: “try it, you’ll like it”!
If one respects nothing then one must respect the labor that goes into the process of hand separation of Peaberries
Indonesia Sumatra Raja Batak Peaberry - Green
Truly, the Indonesia Sumatra Raja Batak Peaberry proved to be one of the best we've experienced.
Guests we have served agree on this superior bean.
A real joy!
I love Sumatra and saw this description flavor profile and with the discount code I bought 20lbs. I’m still making Heat adjustments to my roast because the size of the bean means my first crack happens earlier than expected. One of my friends who I roasted these beans for said’ “the stuff Dreams are made of!” I guess that could be the case? I love a lighter roast but know Sumatra is best at Full City+. I’m still dialing in what might be the best roast Profile so any other reviews might be helpful.
