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
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. Les On Wed, 16 Mar 2005 12:04:47 -0600, Dennis Parham wrote: <Snip>

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.
