I have discovered the beans!!!

... demitasse. I set out 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 ...

This tiger can not be tamed!!!

Well, yesterday morning I dared myself to try the Sumatra Lintong Sijampola as an "outside the box" SO espresso. And the results? Do not anger the tiger!!! Quickly back away from the tiger!! Respect the tiger!! Perhaps the reason I have ...

I have met the tiger

... have always found those to be pretty tame, reminding me of much of what I like about wet-hulled Indos. And I have to agree with Connie - the aged Sumatra was not so much to my taste.

A tiger walks into a bar!!!

... them no heed as he approached the bar. Once seated, the tiger opened his mouth and quietly purred, " Barkeep, I would like a cup of your best Sumatran coffee!!!" - Yesterday morning I enjoyed just that. Well, not really sure if it is the best Sumatran coffee as I have never really tried ...

Re: Cupper's Correction

... when rating elements combine in such a way that the whole is more than the sum of the parts. I find that I use it with extraordinary Brazils, Sumatrans when their low acidity and relative lack of complexity are not going to give them their due. Second, I find that I award cupper's correction ...

Re: Behmor 1600 - 2Lb Roast?

... obvious, but it never occurred to me that the machine might not be able to handle 2lbs of a bean that kicks off a lot of chaff. I was fine with a sumatran, but I might not have been with some of the Ethiopians I've tried in the past. ⋅  Hitting a dark roast might be difficult. I microwaved ...

Re: Heart of the Centrals

... in this cup, mostly obscured by the complex sweetness. If the Malabar weren't on hand, I'd try any of the more restrained base/blend origins - Sumatra or many of the other Indos, a Brazil, something like that. It is certainly very drinkable... I'm nearly to the end of the last pour of this ...

Re: New sorting request

Do realize that such a sort will auto-screen out Sumatrans and Brazils. I would hate to miss out on the best the origins offer.

Re: Roasting Different Types of Green Beans Together

... of first crack, and use it in my espresso blend. I have been pleasantly surprised at how GOOD this tastes: 10% Monsooned Malabar 10% Brazil 40% Sumatra 40% random blend NOTE - the first three coffees are roasted separately from each other
