We will really never know what a God shot is until we meet Him face to =
There are so many variations in any given pour that despite the very =
best equipment or the best technique some will be better than others.
That is where the thrill is, in the striving.
I take the same green bean, the same roast levels under the same =
conditions and the results can be from just OK to  incredible.
As you learn, even the worst are acceptable and the best-------

Blend of:
50% Yellow Bourbon         City+
25% Harrar Horse #30       City
15% Monsooned Malabar 'Elephant'      Full City
10% Aged Sumatra (the last - sigh)       Full City
Two day rest...so far.
Post roast blended.
1.5 Oz pulled @ 201F
Taste:  Everything +++,  bittersweet chocolate linger that doesn't quit.

Told you the yellow bourbon was a winner

4) From: Michael Dhabolt
It's not that I don't take your appraisal as gospel, but I fully
expected this years to not be 'quite' up to the quality of last years.
 Not so, this is soooo good that I'll have to start limiting my
consumption again - or I'll be buzzing two inches off the floor.

I've got to try the same blend with the Gethwumbwini Peaberry instead
of the HH Lot 30.
Every once in awhile things are so right-on that it gets your
enthusiasm back into play.

I've got 24 lbs and I share

7) From: Barry Luterman
That should be outstanding. I use the Geth in a lot of my blends. It is a 
little to acidic for a SO but it blends nicely with almost everything. 
Should be outstanding with the Bourbon

I have all those beans ... and  I'm roasting tomorrow ... OH JOY!

I have a preroast blend of 1/3 Green Stripe 
Harrar, 1/3 Ghimbi, and 1/3 Sidamo - all DP.  It 
is the blend I have been using for the last few 
months and since I know it so well, thought it 
would be good for cross machine evaluations.  It 
roasted up yesterday so it would be all ready for 
Saturday.  Only a pound although I may put a 2nd one on.

John, miKe,
I will roast 2 #s tonight.  That means 3rd day rest for Saturday. Yes,
barring unforseen circumstances I'll see y'all Saturday - looking
forward to seeing you guys.  Barry, we'll miss ya.
I hope the Scace shows up.  I'm bringing a La Cimballi that I want to check out.

Only had 70 gms of the aged Sumatra left - made up the remainder (of
that 10%) with Lintong DP.  Had enough of the Sul De Minus Yellow
Bourbon.  And came to the conclusion that I had better order more of
the Elephant MM (enough left for a few more roasts).  Plenty of the
Lot 30 left and have 20# of the green stripe on the way.
Looks like I had better order tonight,  I'm sure gonna miss that aged
Sumatra (Tom if you read this - hint, hint).
Mike (just plain)
