Brazil Moreninha Formosa this week.

This batch is getting a little long in the tooth, though - need to roast another batch today before the cold front arrives! Shock

I am enjoying my cup while I read the forum: 11 gr. Panama Boquette and 8 gr. Guatemala Antigua in a 14 oz, up. This is accompanied by walnut Mixture tobacco in a favorite pipe.
May the Force be with your cup

Bold and brash at this stage as an espresso will need a few more days to degas
but adding a little milk and it becomes heavenly as a flat white

I home roast and I like it

Sidamo Black Sun (DP) from the Left Coast Bean Purveyor. Roasted to full city in the Gene; no 2nd cracks.

Fragrance is full of plums and tropical fruits. Banana snuck in there but once in the cup, it becomes the pronounced fruit of the day. Spices underneath the cup that linger into the aftertaste. Lots going on in the cup. Noisy but not disturbing. Just a skosh of chocolate sneaks in.

Jamaica Blue Mtn, Mavis Bank's Plantation. Distributed a 30 kg barrel last Spring from Chad's provider, Zephyr. Had to figure out how to disassemble the barrel so that it was a keeper once I had the coffee out of it. Chronicled here (you can slow the speed of the photos):

Converted the top into a decoupage and have it hanging on the office wall:

Brazil Moreninha Formosa, Full City, rested 5 days. Tart cherry turning syrupy and chocolate.

Has anyone roasted it darker yet? Mid to late second crack? (Vienna or French)

Impromptu blend of Mocha Java and IMV.

Roughly 60% IMV (FC), 25% Java Pancoer and 15% Yemen Mocha Sanani. Like adding a fruit and chocolate bomb to an already lively and rich cup. I'll have to duplicate this on a vacuum pot, which brings out better qualities on DP coffees than drip.

Better pucker when you try that in a vacpot pad'ner.

Working over a Salvador Cup of Excellence, Los Alpes. I think this was a bet/gift of TheJavaMan.

Pacamara beans. Whoa, boy howdy dem big beans. Roasted very, very evenly though probably size 20s <?>.

Definite baker's chocolate in there, with cup running on the 'dry' side. Coffee taste seems to 'rise rather than sink' into the mouth. A basketful of spices, all blended together. Can pull some black pepper. The Czarina gave it a thumbs down. Curious...

Winter's Sun Blend, Alpha

Los Alpes, Salv CoE/Sid Black Sun DP/Jam Blue Mtn: FC/FC/FC: 50/25/25. 23 second pull from Ms Silvia w/18grams

Like mine in capps. Winey fruits from the Sidamo predominate. JBM? What JBM? Talk about hiding. This was a crema bomb, showering the shot.

Tomorrow, I will back down on that Black Sun. Actually preferred it straight to the capp.

I am getting to the end of my Tanzania Blackburn estate and will hate to see that one go from last years crop. That was the first pot this morning and now I'm having a cup of Costa Rica Tarrazo/Yemin Mix. Life is good. The Blackburn was super from Ms. Silvia...... Jim;)

Today's selection was a vacuum pot of Sumatra Mandheling TP Select (FC) with a touch of fruit added from 5% of a Bagersh Harar at City+. The Sumatra was one of the first bags I bought last year, and it's still holding up well 10 months later. Deep, rich, chocolate bass notes, with a light touch of the Sumatra earthiness, and "thick as a brick" body.

Still can't make a break from the Idido Misty Valley Valley from SM's. I smell pronounced blueberry when I give the roasted beans a whiff. Fruit abounds in the cup and it's a taste all it's own.

FTO Ethiopian Shanta Golba City+. This time, the blueberries are up front again, but the cider spice has been brought further up from the bakground! Joetownroaster was over last night and I brewed him a quick cup. He thought it was one of the more special coffees he's tried.
