Topic: 2 week old coffee roast (4 msgs / 86 lines)
1) From: Gloria Hoover
Hi Andy
We have had the same type of thing happen. Didn't like the roast then mixed it with
other "left over" roasts or just wanted to "get rid of it" and found that it wasn't
too bad.
Now did the coffee get better or do we (husband and I)just like some coffees stale?
As it was suggested write your findings in a log and see what happens - that's the
fun of doing this.

Gloria;
	Isn't that what folks call Mongrel Blend?  The only frustration with that
is I hit a wonderful blend with the remnants and hadn't documented it - it
was wonderful coffee that I'll never be able to duplicate.  I now even
document my mongrel blend - just in case.

John,
Didn't know it had a name but some of it sure tastes good while others (like my
Mongrel blend last night) are shall we say awful, undrinkable lol. My husband took a
sip and the muscles in the throat did a cute little dance. He didn't say a word just
kept reading. Took another sip, glanced at me out of the corner of his eye and kept
reading. As he lifted the cup for the third time the comment was "Have you tried
this". Laughing said no how is it (like I didn't know). Comment back Undrinkable. So
a new pot was made in the Utopia
We win, we lose and we learn

I *think* I started calling it a "mongrel blend" on this list - the 
remnants of roasts I toss together in the freezer and that often brews the 
best cuppas.  I say *think*, because I'm not sure, and I don't want to 
claim "credit" for the phrase if I inadvertently read it in someone else's 
post and just adopted it.  (I also call it Gary's Goodtime Blend, but 
that's rather egotistical.)

That is the fun of this hobby!

Amen, Gloria, amen.
