Topic: OH SO GOOD!?? Toraja (6 msgs / 104 lines)
1) From: Dennis Parham
Well... I just ordered 5lbs of Toraja... I started a buddy onto 
homeroasting and he is not a Lurker.. hehehe ( just told on him!! lol) 
anyway..he has become an addict now for Toraja!! and he has always been 
quite a connoisseur  of fine food and coffee...  I spent about  2 years 
trying to convince him that THIS IS UP HIS ALLEY!! well... he is 
Totally addicted and learning FAST!!! )))) because of his enthusiasm,  
it spawned me to order a friggin 5lb stash of this fine bean!!  Anyone 
want to throw in some 2 cents or more about their experiences on the 
Toraja??? Im going to be making espresso with it mostly! :-)
Im now upwards of 55lbs beans... my highest stash volume to count! lol

Dennis,
55 pounds?  My stash never gets much below 100 pounds!  I am currently
over 150 pounds!  The Toraja is good, but I much prefer the
Dry-Processed Mandheling.  I still have 6 pounds of that in my stash. 
Mix your Toraja with some Yemen for a fine Mocha-Java.

I started with Toraja when I started roasting, and
have tried not to ever run out since.  In fact, I
think this may be the only bean (other than Kona) that
I've stuck with as a staple.  Makes great espresso,
but is excellent as a lighter roast, too.  I've
roasted it pretty much across the spectrum and found
it to be a fine coffee in all roasts. 
The decaf Tom has is excellent, also.
