Topic: Monkey peaking today! Yirgacheffe takes back seat. (16 lines)
1) From: Espressoperson
Day 4 monkey. Wham! There is no missing when it clicks in. It's always  good, 
but in that 3-6 day window it is the best. It first hits with my  morning 
cappa. It's real special when it happens on a day like today where  I can stay 
home and OD on shots without too much consequence.
 
It's hard to appreciate the taste of Yirg compared to this. My day 5.5 mid  
morning yirg press pot was better than yesterday. Slightly less flowery but a  
cleaner tangier citrus lemon taste than yesterday. But nothing like the day 1  
and 2 bursts of flavor. I'll have to do more roasts to see how it rests and  
ages to find that ideal window. And then what kind of roasting would  prolong 
that flavor. (Woops, getting a little carried away. We hottop  users don't 
have much control - Hackers, hurry up!)
