Topic: BLENDING THE RULES - The Art & Science of Combining Coffees (2 msgs / 45 lines)
1) From: miKe mcKoffee
Good article in the July/August Roast Magazine. For instance really
appreciated and agree with his opinion that each component of a blend must
be of the highest quality instead of blending to mask inferior coffees as
some do. Checked and this particular article happens to be available online
too.http://www.roastmagazine.com/currentissue/blendingtherules.htmlKona Konnaisseur miKe mcKoffee
URL to Rosto mods, FrankenFormer, some recipes etc:http://mdmint.home.comcast.net/coffee/Rosto_mod.htmUltimately the quest for Koffee Nirvana is a solitary path. To know I must
first not know. And in knowing know I know not. Each Personal enlightenment
found exploring the many divergent foot steps of Those who have gone before.

I saw that article online a couple days ago and thought it was 
interesting how the Panama coffees were used in some of the blends. Now, 
I don't think the any of the recently offered CoE Panama winners offered 
by SM are sensible for this given the cost, I have blended the Carmen 
Estate 1800+ and really liked the results:
50% Carmen Estate @ FC
30% Guat Huehue @ FC+
20% Kenya Mchana @ C+
Really a nice blend that worked well as an iced coffee... drinking LOTS 
of iced coffee these days.
cheers,
ScoTTT
