Re: Sweet Maria's Choosing Coffee FAQ

... will give you a really good idea of what type of sweetness the coffees have. To get you started, take a look at Rwanda and Kenyas also, our Ethiopias are all very sweet with relatively lower clean cup scores. Take a look at our Colombia Finca Pariso as well.

I have discovered the beans!!!

... to use the roasted coffee that Connie has sent me. Kinda want to do an espresso and dedicate it to Connie. Using the FSDBV, Sumatra and that DP Ethiopian, the challenge is getting all the beans in balance and harmony with one another. After the first shot, well, I have my work cut out for me. ...

I have tamed the fruit!!!

... Enter the Aricha. But wait - I only have tried the Aricha as press pot and didn't feel it was all that bright. Silly me, I just always think the Ethiopian's will be bright. I digress. Using the Aricha helped to back off on the intensity of the Java Sunda/Malabar blend. And the Java Sunda/Malabar ...

Re: mokha java blend

... will offer some suggestions, but the specific origins it refers to aren't the most useful aspect of it. From the current offerings list, the Ethiopia Dry Process Sidama Njori would seem to be the obvious choice for the "berry-berry" component. Do feel free to try different ratios, ...

This tiger can not be tamed!!!

... was just not pleasant. I enjoy this coffee as a press. But as an espresso...... -Okay, next up is the other coffee that Connie sent me, the Ethiopia DP Yirga Cheffe Konga. This coffee got the press treatment and passed with high marks. The best way to describe this coffee is, "A bowl ...

The Intensity Factor

... indicative of the degree of concentration of favorable atrributes, present in the sense of a coffee's positive total impact. Until drinking the Ethiopia Bonga Forest Mankira considered intensity as a practical matter immune to the ills of excess, but Mankira goes too far. As of late yesterday ...

Re: I have met the beans

... as well, and rather disappointing. The first lot had been distinctive and exotic, and pleasingly cheap. I also enjoyed a last lovely cup of the Ethiopian DP Konga that I also sent to Jim. There's still one more roast's worth of that in my stash; if you like it, Jimitri, I can send some again ...

Re: I have met the beans

... dim, must run down the list of people who stopped talking to me 10 years ago. e-g-v PS -- now for something completely different AND enjoyable -- Ethiopia Bonga Forest Mankira. A potent cup, packs a wallop not unmistakably Ethiopian, reminding me of something else...but what?

Of course I drink Malabar.....

... received the totally unexpected "coffee therapy" package in the mail today(Saturday). The enclosed coffees are greatly appreciated. A DP Ethiopian(Yirga Cheffe Konga) is always welcome in my house and the Sumatra is a very nice surprise. Haven't had a Sumatra(Lingtong Sijamapola) in,well, ...
