I recently acquired a KMB. Amazing coffee. I don't own a drip machine, this is as close as I will probably be to one. Up until today I have only had Harar in a French Press, AeroPress, and SwissGold pour over. So I brewed up a pot of Harar (Lot 19, 6 days past roast C+) in the KMB this morning. Very rich with hints of blueberry and milk chocolate. Great job Krups! So, any other beans out there that fair well in the KMB?
I really haven't found anything that didn't fare well in the KMB. I have had beans that tasted different from the KMB brew when I had them in a moka pot or French Press, not necessarily better--just different. That being said, I am drinking a Guatemalan this morning, roasted City+, that is a delight. I bought it locally (well sorta, it involved a two hour drive), whilst waiting for my SM order to arrive. Harvey works miracles, but Canada Post takes its own sweet time. Based on this lovely coffee, I would definitely give the Guat from SM a go. vicki James House wrote: <Snip>
Sounds great Vicki, I will put some of that on my next order! Yes you are right on target with my observations as well, the coffee isn't necessarily better or worse, just different. It is surprisingly good though, and it appears ever so slightly the more I drink KMB the more I am tending to enjoy it/get used to it. I drank the entire pot of my Harar this morning. :) On 6/9/06, Vicki Smith wrote: <Snip>
Both the regular and decaf Guat. Huehue from SM are wonderful (and the latter is possibly the most dependably delicious decaf I've had the pleasure to drink). On Jun 9, 2006, at 9:16 AM, Vicki Smith wrote: <Snip> Sandy www.sandyandina.com
I'll second the vote on the decaf Guat. Huehue. Everyone that I roast for, that drinks decaf, gave this one the thumbs up over samples of all the others. Mike (just plain)
