Eth Nat Yirg Idido roasted yesterday. I dropped some off at a friends coffee shop. In a few days he will brew it and tell me what he thinks. We believe my roasts are better than what we buy.

They seem to be after the shoutbox. They have been removed. I don't see anything in the forums.

Ka'u - Rusty's Farm Hawaii
Been in discussion with a woman farmer from the Big Island. Here is a typica from this year:

Cuppers: - Bill, Denise, B|Java
Process: - WP
Sample Provided by: - B|Java
Vendor: - Rusty's Farm
Elevation: - 2200'
Roaster: - B|Java
Days Rest? - 5
Method: - Gene Cafe
Level: City Plus
Any Roaster Observations/Comments: Very uniform roast
Prepared in press pot: 12 oz water, 23 g coffee: 3:45 m steep (can't imagine what nuances will come dancing out in a vacpot)


1. Dry fragrance/wet aroma – Dry fragrance: grind fills the first floor of the house. Light caramel. Wet aroma: Sweet, rich orchid. Deep-hibiscus

2. Brightness/acidity – Just right for the floral cup, holds the bouquet up

3. Flavor/depth – Jasmine, floral bouqet, tea-like tastes from florals

4. Body/mouthfeel – “This is the most delicate cup I have ever had.” Gentle cup; light body. Some effervescence/carbonation feel – pleasant tingle.

5. Finish/aftertaste – Became just a tad drier as the cup concluded, moving to a cumquat or Cutie Clementine hint as we bid it farewell.

Overall, this is a floral salad, picking up hints of citrus along the way. Skosh of cream? – softened the cup even further. Yummm...

Thumbs : 3 up. In a word, "unique."

Cupping Score: 88.5.
