Topic: OK, there's blueberries in there now! (3 msgs / 144 lines)
1) From: Scott Miller
My computer monitor died on Saturday morning so I haven't found time to 
post since then. Thanks for all the input & experience from others with 
Lot 30. Although I am confident I hit the roast at a C+ or perhaps FC 
level (through first crack, no sign of second), I didn't get any 
blueberry aroma during the roast or in the beans once stored. Nor after 
the grinding... There was a change in the aroma of the beans on Sunday 
morning. I couldn't really classify it as anything specific but that may 
be due to the heavy pine pollen we have right now. It sure can mess up 
your sniffer!
So, the Sunday morning cup had a pronounced blueberry flavor, not just 
at the end of the cup, but all the way through. Same thing today. In 
addition to the blueberries, the other flavors are really nice. I just 
don't have awareness of any blueberry aroma, but since the goal is to 
drink the stuff that's fine. I think even without a blueberry flavor, 
this would be a fine coffee. I wonder how a blend with a Yemen would 
turn out? Or is this a coffee that should be left alone?
I will try a bit lighter roast tomorrow; I want to take some of this 
with me on my visit to friends at the Savannah Music Festival: I'll be 
seeing Derek Trucks on Thursday; Sam Bush on Friday!
cheers,
Scott

I tried it in a KMB with about 20% Yemen and it completely killed the
blueberry.  It was good, but very different.

sounds like a great music fest!
I found that for one pot brewed in the Technivorm, one SM scoop each  
of Harar (Horse or Oromia) for blueberry nuances, a Latin City- 
roasted such as El Salvador Pacamaral/PR Yauco Selecto/Guat Huehue  
(tried a different one ea. of three days in a row and all worked  
beautifully) for "snap", Aged Sumatra and Sumatra Tim Tim Blablablah-- 
all ground together (a little more coarsely than for Aeropress but  
still finer than "drip"--make a great balanced morning cup with tang,  
sweetness, fruit and body.
