Topic: A bad day? (2 msgs / 46 lines)
1) From: Vicki Smith
I roasted my first batches of Horse Harar to ~ city/city +, the other 
day, and was happy with the blueberry notes and the taste both 24 and 48 
hours post roasting. Today, day 3, it tasted sour--or just off in some 
way. I tried it in my moka pot, after being disappointed in it with the 
KMB, and it was worse.
Now, it is allergy season here, and my taste buds might be off, but I'm 
thinking that it is more than that.
I had a similar experience with Ghimbi, and found that the next day 
(that would be 4 days post roasting) whatever was happening had settled 
down, and the coffee was, while not the best cup of coffee I have ever 
had, acceptable.
Have I lost my mind, or is this sort of thing possible with these DP 
Ethiopian beans?
I roasted the same bean this AM, but took it a little darker, in the 
neighbourhood of full city.

Vicki:
I think our taste "buds" can be off at any time. I would try the horse at a full city +...
From the same sack I have roasted the horse to almost the same degree and can taste a difference.
I will note that the best horse I have ever had was full city + at 10 days.
regards,
ginny
