Topic: Old Friends (3 msgs / 23 lines)
1) From: Lesley Albjerg
With all the great new coffees, it is easy to forget old friends in the Stash!  After the taste test, I have rearranged part of the stash by age.  I had forgotten about the Nicaragua Matagalpa -Pacamara 19+ screen, so I roasted up a nice batch of these oversized beans.  I let them rest for 72 hours because this is one coffee that has a flavor explosion at that level of rest.  I tasted all that Tom's review said,  "The cup has sweet aroma with a neat herby sage note. The body is medium, with pronounced citus flower sweetness, and a beautiful lingering aftertaste of the same. Sage and sweet red pepper emerges as the cup cools: this is simply a very, very attractive cup."   Now, for all you newbies, don't rush off to buy some, it isn't there!  This is why we have stashes!  Anyone else out there been roasting up some old friends?  By the way I enjoyed this as both a straight double shot as well as an Americano.  Becky loved her Cappo!

Lesley,
After reading several of your posts and then running off to place an order, I got to thinking. Are you in on the devious plot to get the rest of us to order more and more of whatever Tom gets? ;-))

No James,
I just want to share the joy of great coffee!  The stash is currently under 80 pounds.  It was over 200 at one point.  Speaking of "Old Friends" I finished up the last of my Java Jampit last week.  According to Tom, there are not very many good coffees coming out of Java right now, so I will have to cherish that memory for a while.  In the old days having 3 varieties in the stash made you feel good, 5 made you feel estatic!
