I wouldn't ordinarily try to blend these two beans, but they comprised
a mongrel blend and turned out to be excellent. I had a 50/50 blend
of Java Government Estate and Nicaragua Matagalpa Maragogype '04 that
I roasted together to full city - and it makes an interesting and very
good espresso. A bit of Tom's Monkey blend taste with some great
earthy tastes - from a Wussy Central!!
I just reordered more of the La Berlina before Les could buy it all up
again. My beloved has informed me that La Berlina is her favorite and
she wouldn't care if that is all I roasted from now on. So as most of
you know - what Carolyn wants - I get! I think this years crop is
much better than last year's and last year's was wonderful.
