    Re: “White Coffee

    Hi Slightly Bmused,

    Just like Turkish coffee, Saudi coffee is a method of coffee preparation. You can use any green coffee beans from any country you want; I used Ethiopian coffee. My purpose was just to point out where our white coffee idea possibly came from, and not to condone nor approve of the Saudi Arabian lifestyle. I apologize if I somehow transmitted that idea due to the fact that I thought it tasted good.

    Sincerely,
    Angela

    Re: “White Coffee

    Hi Swag,

    I saw that during my research. However, the white coffee I'm referring to is the white coffee here in the United States and the closest one that I believe it is based from is the Saudi coffee I referred to. Thanks for reading my post and thank you for the feedback.

    Sincerely,
    Angela

    Re: “How to make great coffee using a french press

    Hi Elizabeth,

    It was my pleasure, glad I was of help to you! I'm so happy for you getting a French press. :) The one I have right now is a 1 liter Mira brand. From my experience, if you'll be brewing with it frequently/daily, do not get a glass beaker type. I recommend something more durable even though it will be more expensive at first (stainless steel or ceramic), it will end up being a better investment.

    Sincerely,
    Angela

    Re: “Coffee resources for beginners

    Hi there atomicbird,

    Good to hear from you! I agree, roasting on a popcorn popper is easy. But with so much information out there about coffee, the point of this post is to direct someone who is just getting started with learning about coffee in general.

    This is a list of resources I have experience with and recommend, unfortunately I can't speak for the ones you mentioned. Thank you for pointing out local resources that you have experience with and recommend. I'm not telling you to not support local businesses.

    I like my green coffee suppliers, because I like to know details about my coffee and they provide support for home roasters like me. They also have 20-30+ single origin options at any given time. Having lots of options encourages me to try something new and experiment with, but that's just me.

    Yes, one loses 15-20% of bean weight after roasting, but even after this fact and I calculate my results pound for pound in roasted bean weight it is still cheaper for me to roast at home. I'm just stating a fact from my experience, based on the prices I get for my green beans. On top of that, I don't buy green coffee by the pound. I buy at least 5 pounds at a time at bulk price -something I wouldn't do with roasted coffee for home use.

    So, either way, I think you brought up a good point. A good rule of thumb is to pay AT LEAST 20% LESS per pound for your green bean compared to its roasted counterpart. Otherwise, you're being charged extra for that lost bean weight.

    Thank you for reading my post and thank you for your feedback!

    Re: “Riding the Third Wave

    I don't think that's stupid at all. Good for you for not being afraid to try something new and unfamiliar to you, Lani!
