I recently came into possession of some green Sumatra beans. I have not roasted anything from Indonesia yet and am looking forward to it.
One of the first things I noticed was the inconsistency of the beans. There were some big ones, some very small ones, some dark ones and light one. They were all over the place. I had not run into this before and am not sure how it will affect the cup (most likely not good).
Now I know it is cheating to use one blog to write another blog. Death Wish Coffee actually has some really good blog posts, so I recommend checking them out. I'm not the biggest fan of their coffee, but I am a big fan of their company.
They did a blog titled "6 Ugly-Ass Coffee Beans." I found it interesting and thought I would share.
