Topic: afternoon coffee (2 msgs / 59 lines)
1) From: petzul
Today I wanted to try something different, so I roasted 50 Gr. of some 
Colombian sample pack from SM.
The only real difference between roasting 50 or 300 Gr. with my Popper 
(love that glass lamp chimney) is the time it takes. 50 Gr. roasts and 
cools quicker if you want. So I took a total of 10 minutes to barely 
second and back again, instead of the 15 minute time with the larger 
amount.
Grind with the Mazzer, hot water to half in the french press.
This coffee is soooo goood. Dunno what it would be like if rested 
overnight, but now it is smooth, bright with chocolate overtones.
Could this be my imagination?? Don't really care. This is a good way to 
have a cup of coffee, if you want to wait 15 to 20 minutes for it.
Hmmm.. seems like I have stood in line at $bucks for longer than that on 
occasion..
Ahhhh, that was way in the past :)

Well, it is 110F outside this afternoon, and I am not!
When I went to grind some other beans for my afternoon french press,
alas, I was OUT!
Not fair or even sane, with 100 + pound stash!
So I had to 'settle' for my favorite Harrar Horse. Nope, Not really
disappointed. It is still wonderful coffee no matter how it is brewed.
It really struck me though, how much richer it is when done in a
french press. Very different taste from melitta drip. Much better
imho.
But SHE would never agree. 
(Do not mess with perfection!) 
The words ring loud and clear!
This evening I must get on track with my Monsooned Malibar. Roast a
half a pound to carry through the weekend. Also some Liquid Amber so
it can age a bit for espresso.
Les,
You talk about all the great coffee Tom has, and you are so right!
Now I have another order ready for Harvey based on your happiness!
Just need to check to see if I already have it, and then a simple mouse cli=
ck :)
