Coffee Shrub

Coffee is a multi-stemmed, gangly, awkward, diminutive shrub. Coffee Shrub is dimunitive too; a micro-seller of coffee serving shops that roast. We sell green coffee in batches that equal roughly a bit less than 1/2 or 3/4 of a traditional jute bag packaged in Grain-Pro lined bags, at either 50lbs. or 100lbs. You have the convenience of thorough, descriptive reviews as a starting point for your own tasting notes and also relevant information about the farms, including images that you can use to promote the coffee. Look over our coffees and see if any of these offerings would complement your current list.

Hi again Alejandro, I generally am shooting for 6 - 7:30 minute first crack time, and then finishing within the next 2 minutes for cupping. This might change for coffee of higher density (maybe as long as 2:30 post first snaps), but determined case by case, and you will have to be comfortable making those judgement calls based off of sensory cues...(view)

Thank you for the answer. And also I want to know, what could be the right temperature for a green been with a high density? And the second question, what could be the curve profile to cupping? Thanks for the attention. Kind regards. (view)

Hey Alejandro, The Quest is a robust little machine, and I've roasted as many as 20 batches in a row (I'm sure it can handle more). Feel free to contact me directly if you have any other questions. Dan Wood
