Topic: 1st Post Host Roast (54 lines)
1) From: miKe mcKoffee
First I've gotta say there were quite a number of excellent roasts of 
excellent beans brought to PNWGIII by many people. Don't think for a second 
home roasting cannot equal or even beat professional roasting! From the wild 
to mild. Alchemist's Heinz 42 roast got raves. People (even Tom) went 
goo-goo over Les's rendition of Panama Geisha. Les's Cinnamon Uganda on the 
other hand got mixed reviews. It was a beautiful cinnamon roast, no hints of 
any grassy or underroast, but just didn't work for me in the cup when I was 
challenged to pull a triple ristretto with it! Pulled a couple right nice 
looking 1oz triples but not there in the cup to me. Too cinnamony?-) Oaxaca 
brought a couple dazzling roasts: a Mexican/ El Sal' Miel blend and harrar 
melange, both excellent. Pulled a few shots of the two combined that were 
out of this world. Who brought the Puro Scuro roast? Don't know but it was 
good! Greg brought a couple HotTop roasted delights: Australian Mt Top & 
Moki's Kona. He was complaining a bit yesterday about how we've kind of 
ruined him from buying cheap greens;-) Sunday morning made a first of the 
morning Americano with a JBM Mavis Banks beautiful two roast melange Mike 
(just plain;-) gifted me. I knew it looked and smelled excellent Saturday 
evening, which was only surpased by the cup! Barry brought a roast of Kenya 
04 Auction Lot 624 Kora Peaberry 'cuz I'd mentioned to him I didn't try it 
last year. I made a small Press Pot Saturday to try, outstanding bean and 
roast! Debi loved it. Hmmm, that wasn't one of the roasted beans I found any 
left overs. I'm sure I missed some of the roasts brought by others and I 
apolgize. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise, with excellent greens 
lovingly and meticulously sourced by Tom and skills learned from this List 
it's an unbeatable one two punch.
Which leads me to my first post host roast this morning. Barry brought me 2# 
Kenya Kora Peaberry greens! (been kept vac bag sealed just like I do mine) 
Barry told me Tom tried to get them from him but I'm the lucky recipient. 
Roasted them about Tom's recommended City+ in 12:00, about 3:30 start of 1st 
to EOR inc plus 0:15 finish hold. Haven't brewed any yet but smell of roast 
developement and but post roast beans munch says gonna be good. Thanks 
Barry!
I respectfully roasted the KKP sipping an Island of St. Helena Blueman's 
Estate 04 Americano. (Enough for one double shot was all that was left from 
what I roasted for PNWGIII vac pot brews to go with desert.)
