Wet- Process versus Dry-Process, Light Roast versus Dark Roast.

Wet- Process versus Dry-Process, Light Roast versus Dark Roast.
This weeks roasted coffee is a dramatic comparison of wet process (Ethiopia) verus dry process coffee, but also of roast level. The Ethiopia is a light body, clean, bright coffee and is well suited to the light City roast level I did on these batches. And the Brazil is more about body and chocolate roast tone, so the darker Full City roast plays to the strong suit of this coffee. I think you’ll find these two offerings quite different, and might help you and your household clarify your preferences. Do you like light roasted, bright, high-toned, lively, acidic coffee like the Ethiopia? Or do you prefer the more rustic, slightly fruity, low acid, tenor-to-bass note flavors of the darker roast Brazil? Hopefully you will find pleasure in both -Tom
