    Request for a mellow cofffee

    Could anyone help suggest me a (preferably inexpensive), mellow, very heavy(bold), low acidity bean/blend? Something smooth with a flavor that hangs around in your mouth a while. I don't have the ability to roast my own, but I can grind.

    Thanks!

    I visited a Coffee Farm in Costa Rica that has some very good coffee like you describe. I don't have any of their roasted coffee but I brought back green beans. They do have roasted coffee on their website www.goldenbean.net. Give them a try.

    We (my wife and I) have experimented with a lot of different green beans for home roasting. Our favorite is Costa Rican Tarrazu beans. They seem to have the character we like and we don't roast them too dark because we like a mellow roast. I can't help much for already roasted beans, however, while we were out of green beans I did see Tarrazu in a medium dark roast at Trader Joes and we bought them to try them out. They were good, not quite as good as home roasted in my opinion, but we would/will buy them again if/when we run out of green beans again.

    Based on my experience there are several mild-medium options. Beans from Brazil, Colombia, Guatemala just to name a few....

    I used to like the lighter stuff until I tried cupping Ethiopia Sidamo. Now it's my go-to bean for drip. Nice and dark with fruit/wine sort of aftertaste. Actually working with my roaster so he can blend the espresso we currently use, which is a Brazilian Ipanema together with the Sidamo to give the fruit/wine notes, while still maintaining the nutty/buttery taste/texture of the Brazilian. Later!

    I really like Sidamo also. If you roast it right it tastes like blueberries.

    Yeah Sidamo rules for me..... I've tried lots of variety for drip over the last year or so including offerings from Brazil, Costa Rica, Colombia, Guatemale, Kenya and a few from East Africa. IMO none can touch the Sidamo. Anytime a customer asks for something "a little darker" that's what I give them. I usually don't ask if they want something lighter or darker because I think visions of Charbux dance in their head and they very quickly say "lighter please".... Later!

    Behmor Roaster & Ctrl and S American beans for mellow roast?

    An elderly friend of mine from N Dakota,who only drinks black Melitta filter coffee, does not like darker roasts. She liked the Java, but not the Sumatra. Said it was a bit 'harsh.'
    I am thinking I might do better with Guatemala, Brazil, Peru, Bolivia or Costa Rica.
    I roast with a Behmor. I am thinking I should take it to 1st crack, then Cool about 30 seconds later.

    Anyone have an infromed opinion on this?

    I think Costa Rica is definitely a mellow coffee that is almost as good as Kona.

    Have you tried Kona yet? Not Kona blend, but 100%. I think you'll find smoothness w/ some body.
