Topic: monsoon malabar (4 msgs / 65 lines)
1) From: peter zulkowski
Back in Boston, on Saturday evening and / or Sunday afternoon, I would 
get the urge for a special cup of coffee, and we would drive from 
Peabody where we lived over to Marblehead to a little coffee house that 
has been there forever called The Kings Rook. We would sit, order 
espresso, cafe au lait, or one of the chocolate coffees, soak in the 
ambiance and think we were in heaven.
This afternoon I roasted some Monsooned Malabar that arrived here in LHC 
this past week from SM.
Suddenly I got the urge for a special cup of coffee (no Kings Rook 
here). So I heated a cup of water in my new Bodum, ground 2 scoops of my 
fresh roasted Malabar, and  let the two sit together in a french press 
for a few minutes ( should I really time this part?).
If any of you are living in, sayyyy, Ohio, and are trying to make up 
their mind to go either to Marblehead, MA or Lake Havasu City, AZ for 
coffee, then I can help with this. The coffee here in LHC is way better 
than what they serve in Marblehead :)
Not that I like to brag or anything  ;)

Only if you want repeatability in extraction.

Sometimes people want different extractions for different occasions. I know I do - maybe Pete, also. You know - playing it by ear - brewing by feel. Very special sometimes.
