I agree with you about the quality of this coffee. It's so good on its own, it doesn't need to be improved by blending. I'm so happy some is on its way to me (got the shipping notification on Fri), along with Cerrado Fazenda Aurea.
Been tinkering with the Java blend, changing up proportions, roast sizes and times, and have come to a very nice place:
1.5 oz Java
4 oz Mokka Sharasi
5.5 oz Brazil Jaoa de Campos yellow cantuai
Roasted in the Behmor, 1# B P4. Dialed the roast time back to 12 mins, started the machine, dialed roast time back up to 24:30. This may or may not shorten the initial profile steps and extend the last one, far from clear, but, I end up with a fairly decent FC with no char. Smells yummy. Roasted yesterday, resting now. Roasted this as a gift to one of my wife's friends, may have to re-think the gift thing (!!!).
I should be close, what with the Mokka and Java both running out and none in the pipeline...
Got to go pull a second double. Later.
