Re: Can We Talk Coffee

I got some of the Coffee Snobs Yirgacheffe Special Prep and tried various roasts ranging from CS7 to CS11, but it's not coming up as good as the roasted Yirg from my local coffee shop. I think I need to revise that statement. My roast was not as good at 1,2,3 and 4 days. On the 5th day it improved ...
