Without knowing any other details it seems to me the roast was a bit rushed.

Subject: [Homeroast] Sour coffee taste
I'd like to ask for some help/advice regarding a recent roast. I picked up
some green Mexican Chiapas from a local roaster and used it to christen my
Quest (after a few batches of Tom's Thumbs Down.) I took the beans to FC -
8 min to 1st, 11 to finish. The flavor is OK, but there is a sour taste on
the finish. Not the standard acidic bite on the front of the tongue, but
rather in the back. Is this simply a question of bean quality or can this
sourness be caused by something in the roasting technique. I brewed with
both French press and manual drip with the same results so I don't believe
the brewing method is the culprit. Any ideas?
p.s. Great listserv. This group has really helped me improve my roasting.
