Topic: New Bugesu (11 msgs / 343 lines)
1) From: Lesley Albjerg
I don't know if it is the Mazzer, but this years Uganda Bugesu is excellent.  Complex, chocolate, and malty flavors throughout!  Alfred, the Dr. says you need a prescription of Bugesu.  I blew my wife away with an Cappo with a brightness and rich chocolate flavor.  With another 24 hours rest, it will even be more complex.

I agree, Les...  I roasted some with my heat gun last Sunday and took it
with me on my week-long business adventure.  I was blown away by the
flavors.  I used both press and the one cup Swissgold drip maker from SM.
 
Someone on the list mentioned it when Tom first put it on the web site, so I
ordered 5 lbs. and I'm very glad that I did.  I roasted it just into second
crack, so call it somewhere between City+ and full city...  Wonderful
stuff...  I may have to roast some more tomorrow morning for the coming
week's trip...

Ron,
 
I mentioned it.  If I could only have one coffee (God Forbid), Uganda Bugesu would be it.
I just did a blend of  1/3 Bugesu, 1/3 Brazil Poco Fundo and 1/3 PNG Arokara taken to full city!  If it tastes half as good as it smells I am in for a treat!  Trifection?

See...  I KNEW that someone had mentioned it! 
 
Let us know how that blend tastes...  I don;t have any Poco Fundo, but I do have a coupe of other Brazils and I just received some Arokara on Friday...
 
Happy Easter or Passover if either apply!

Thanks Ron!  Yes Easter!  I am a Protestant Hospital Chaplain.  God's blessing on everyone in the group this Easter!  I'll give a report on the new blend.  I will be trying it on Monday.

I served the Uganda AA Bugisu `04 with Easter dinner dessert.  I roasted this 
to City plus.  Truly a stunning coffee -- I was so thrilled with it I ordered 
a bunch more Sunday evening.  I'm interested in experimenting with various 
roasts, but was so pleased did another Sunday evening to City plus as well.  
Tom, thanks for this great coffee.  I have some Puerto Rick Yauco Selecto AA 
degassing now.  Anyone trying this?  Roasted City Plus as well.

     I like to know who I'm communicating with on this list, Given that =
your email address is apparently some modification of your name, I 
would appreciate it if you would sign your email with the name you 
would like to be addressed by.
     Just opened my five pound bag of Bugesu last night and roasted 
about a pound and half blend of it along with PNG and the new Brazil 
Sitilo.  Drinking some of it now tastes quite good for such a new 
roast.  Should be outstanding in a couple of days.

No problem, Jim, thanks for the reminder -- I'll sign my name.  I am enjoying 
my second roasting of the Bugesu, but my son just went back to college and 
took the rest with him -- in fact both of my college age children cleaned me 
out.  I'll be roasting today.  It was satisfying sending my son off back to 
school with a freshly brewed mug of the Bugesu.  Few people have the experience of 
a truly fine and freshly roasted cup.  Ten more pounds is on the way from Tom. 
Think I'll take the next batch out to Full City (been doing City) and see 
what I get.  I'll be taking the rest of the Bugesu down to a local coffee shop 
today, Dead River Coffee in Marquette, Michigan.  They brew by the cup and roast 
their own beans.  The owner has been most helpful to get me into this 
roasting process.  I'm eager to hear his comments on the Bugesu.

Jim,
 
I am sipping a very similar blend this AM.  It was roasted on Sat.  It is outstanding.  Nice thick crema and very complex smooth flavor.  Tastes like good coffee smells.

Dave,
 
This is my favorite variety.  I roast it from a cinnamon to a Vienna Roast.  It is an amazing bean with an outstanding range of flavors based on the roast.  Don't be afraid to go lighter, just make sure you give it at least a 48 hour rest.  In the light roasts you get a milk chocolate flavor.

Dave,
I too am having great results with the Bugesu. Blending this with some
Indian Monsooned has been fantastic and today, after messing up with too
many blends that were over represented by medium roast Central Americans,
the Bugesu worked wonders for todays French Press brews.
What brought me to write was the story of your local coffee shop. How
wonderful to have someone like that help you out as you begin to rely on him
less and less for your supply of brewed and roasted beans.
best, myron
