This is from my roast I did last night. Me and @catiamarie are enjoying our #coffeesesh of Kenya Nyeri Rukira Peaberry. Wow this is an amazing juicy cup filled with all kinds of dark berry flavors.

So a friend of mine at work, Tom, told me yesterday that he tried a new beer and he was not a fan of it. He said he put some wrap around it with a rubber band. And if I would like, he would give me the rest of it. I said sure I would love to try it. It was @allagashbrewing Curieux. I must say I’m glad he didn’t like it so I would get the opportunity to try this amazing brew. I love the complexity in the beer. So good. #allagash #allagashbrewing #curieux #allagashcurieux #triple #belgiantriple #barrelaged #oakbarrel #bourbonbarrel #agedbeer #craftbeer #craftbeergeek #craftbeerlove #beergeek #beerporn #craftmovement #bigbottle #bigbeer

Doing a coffee tasting of the @sweetmarias Costa Rica coffee I roasted. I’m tasting batch #1 & batch #5 to see the difference between each roast. Both are a medium/city roast style. They both had a sweet aroma of dark sugar. Mouthfeel of apple juice. Flavor of brown sugar and hints of tart grapefruit & apple. Finish was slightly dry like tea. After taste of sweet sugar. The difference between them was in the middle of the flavor. Batch #1 the coffee shined though the whole way. Batch #2 in the middle of the flavor I got a sweet roast flavor the was not in batch #1. I don’t know what one I like more. I like how batch #1 was cleaner and all the coffee flavors shined well. And I like how batch #2 was more complexed with the sweet roast flavors. I guess it’s a good thing they are both good. #coffeetasting   #coffee #coffeegeek #coffeelove #coffeesesh #coffeeroaster #coffeeroasting #craftcoffee #craftmovement #roaster #roasting #roastedcoffee #homeroast #homeroaster #homeroasting #homeroastedcoffee #costaricacoffee #sweetmarias #freshroastedcoffee @coffeesesh

After a couple hours of trying to get an idea of where I need to have my starting temp. & heat setting level to get a consistent way to roast. I come to the conclusion that I will have to just play with the heat level though out the roast. I roasted 5 batches at a medium style roast. And my first batch roasted way to fast so I just made it a dark roast.  #roasterproblems #roastingproblems #coffee #roaster  #roasting #roastedcoffee #coffeeroaster #coffeeroasting #homeroast #homeroaster #homeroasting #homeroastedcoffee #freshroastedcoffee #craftcoffee #coffeegeek #coffeelove #coffeeporn #costaricacoffee #sweetmarias @sweetmarias #coffeesesh @coffeesesh

I finally got around to sit down and write a review on this amazing coffee from @riseupcoffee Matagalpa, Nicaragua.  So here we go.   Roast Appearance:  Light roasted/city roast. In the cup it has a rustic orange tint to it.  Aroma:  Sweetness of grapes, berries, & cherries.  Taste:  It’s starts out big & juicy with flavors of dark berries, cherries, currant, pinot noir wine.  In the middle it has hints of citrus flavor & acidic. Then a honey sweetness.  The finish has dryness of walnuts & is clean.  The after taste has a pleasant roasted tomato & earthy flavors that lingers.  Notes:  This coffee has a crazy exotic/wild flavor from the bean naturally drying in the coffee cherry.  It’s really complex for a light roast.  This is probably my favorite coffee I’ve ever tasted.  And would be great as a iced coffee. As I seen a big change in flavors as the coffee cooled.   Great job Rise Up you nailed it with this one.  #riseupcoffee #MatagalpaNicaragua #nicaraguacoffee #coffeereview #coffee #coffeegeek #coffeelove #craftcoffee #localcoffeeroaster #localcoffee #drinklocal #coffeepress #frenchpress #craftglassware #coffeesesh @coffeesesh #coffeetasting #drinkorganic #drinkcoffeeblack #coffeeporn

While at @wfm_glenmills I wanted to do a beer pairing with @greatdividebrew Yeti Imperial Stout.  My wife @catiamarie picked out the top right & bottom left. I pick the bottom right. Needless to say both of her’s beat mine. The top right was Chocolate Florentines and was amazing and won. Her other one on the bottom left was Chocolate Cake Truffle and was really good too. Mind was a Salted Caramel Cupcake it was good but my wife blow me away. Wife 2 Me 0. #greatdividebrewing #yetiimperialstout #beerpairing #chocolateflorentines #chocolatecaketruffle #saltedcaramelcupcake #craftbeer #craftbeergeek #craftbeerlove #beernerd #beerporn #beeranddessert #wholefoods #wifewon
