This is going to be a long one.
I took the tobacco-coffee burrito out of the press, I couldn't take the pressure anymore.
It's been in there since last thursday, under about 250kg/550lb of dead weight. Every heavy thing I have around was placed on there.
All unpacked. This is like briar grain, I could look at it for hours.
Cut into equal parts. The pressure got distributed very nicely.
Cut into flakes. They already started to rub themselves up, they should be in the press for longer.
At least a full week.
Everything got rubbed up nicely during roasting. I jarred it up with roasted coffee beans on the top and bottom of the jar. It's gonna sit there for a while. Of course I set some of it aside to be sampled, which I'm doing as I write this. My cob has the honor. Pretty good stuff, this stuff. Very pleasant and smooth. Nice flavors too but it can always be better.
I thought I'd also roast the mead soaked Virginia flakes for @halfdan
's Clay King blend while I'm at it.
I'll sauce it again soon to get more lemon and honey flavor into it. This spent one week under 170kg/375lb but the flakes held together much better. Lesson learned.
