I'm part owner and roaster at a little coffee company in Wisconsin. Author of Typica, a popular free program used to capture and work with coffee roasting production records that's used at roasting companies all over the world. Volunteer on the Roasters Guild education committee. Available for paid coffee consulting, training, open source software development. Living with a cat who broke into my house and decided to stay. Likes: cute, travel, food. Dislikes: blinking lights.
Looks like Miku Expo has given up on being a thing so I'm just getting my money back. Miku says stay home.
Batch #2 of the limited edition coffee has also mostly sold. It looks like I might need to roast batch #3 tomorrow. I'm working on a write up of how I approached roasting that coffee, but unless I stop getting distracted and am able to slam out the words the coffee might sell out before I can publish that.
Batch #2 matched up perfectly with the first batch. That empties out my first 10Kg box of green coffee (the empty box is now part of the product display). I have one full box left which I'll similarly split into a couple production batches in part because I'm not expecting the coffee to continue selling at the pace the first batch went and in part because my production roaster can't do the profile I chose for this with a large batch size.
All but 1 pound of the first batch of my competition coffee sold by the time I got to the shop today. Will need to roast another batch today. https://wilsonscoffee.com/products/auramatina.html
New coffee is up for sale on the web site. People are already buying it in the shop, too. https://wilsonscoffee.com/products/auramatina.html
Tasting the coffee and, yeah, it's very nice. It tastes absolutely nothing like what I normally do with Brazilian coffees (I could have replicated that flavor profile, but given what I'll have to charge for this, what's the point of that?) It reminds me of the coffee in Ethiopia after you dip some /Ruta chalepensis/ in it, though not roasted anywhere near as dark. For those who haven't had that, it's sort of apple-like.
