All this talk about how much coffee we keep on hand got me over to my stash to check it out. Hey, I have a lot of different 2 to 5 pound bags that have a bit gone from each. Seems like every time I read what this list likes I just have to try it. Not a bad thing, but I have quite a few beans that are just so so, to me, compared to Harrar Horse. Now the problem; I am down to my last few pounds of Horse! :-( Wow, I had planned ahead and when Tom's last shipment came in I bought 40 pounds. Figured that would do me until next crop, and besides, Tom always has Horse! NOT! Being a newbie, and a bit long in the tooth, I plumb forgot that he ran out last year also, and I was whining that I was out. Well, it was a very good year for Horse. I DO have other coffees I can try more of, although they are not quite the same (to me). AT one point I had tried something that was definitely chocolaty. Can anyone tell me what that may have been? Or better still, what can I get now that is rich and chocolaty, for holiday roasting. Any help greatly appreciated. End of Rant..

Java Estates is another one that is pretty good that way but maybe with more "bitter" in it, more "dark chocolate" like. Some are also "chocolaty" but have other flavors in them too. One I like, is the Brazil Carmo Estate Peaberry. It has more nutty flavor mixed in with the chocolate. Though it has been a while, I recall some of the Mexican coffees can have a lighter chocolate flavor to them. I think it was the Oliva I tried last that was pretty good that way. -- Rick Copple Marble Falls, TX
Peter, I asked SM the same question on my last order, and they advised me to read the Guatemalen and Mexican coffee reviews. http://sweetmarias.com/coffee.central.mexico.html. They also ">http://sweetmarias.com/coffee.central.guatemala.html and http://sweetmarias.com/coffee.central.mexico.html. They also metiontioned Brazilian coffees (which have more body) and East African coffee potentially. This helped me out a great deal and another reason why I buy coffee from them. I hope this helps. Oh, I forgot I purchased Honduras Fabio Caballero, and Guatemalan Huehuetenango and they are great coffee . Warmest Regards, Ed Quesada Rick Copple wrote: <Snip>

Hi Frank, I find the older Zass mills compete very well with my Rocky, and THAT should be in the same realm as the Baratza... but I don't own a Baratza, nor can I speak to the quality of the grind for the brand new Zasses... sorry I can't help more....
