Topic: Komatra Americano? (7 msgs / 118 lines)
1) From: miKe mcKoffee
Going to prepare after dinner Americanos the strangest thing happened. I'll
preface by saying slightly mis-timed my last roast session so the JBM Mavis
Banks, Panama Eleta, Moki's Kona and Sumatra Volkopi all only at 2&1/2 days
rest and not quite ready. Only rest ready at 7 days were Sumatra Lintong and
Thunder Mountain Kona (already finished the Bolivia Cenaproc from that roast
session) Since I started the day with a Mt Thunder Americano followed by a
Lintong Cappuccino, then a Monkey ristretto later in the day so was in a
quandry. So what the hay 60cc scoop each City+ Mt Thunder Kona and FC
Sumatra Lintong went into the grinder together. Split the difference on
grind I'd used individually and did the same on shot temp (pulled at ~202f)
Right nice interesting Komatra Americano cup! While virtually always have a
Kona (or two) and an Indonesian roasted not what I'd usually blend, in fact
don't recall every doing it before. Would I do it again? Who knows. I easily
bore with tastes never drinking the same cup back to back so anything's
possible. Hmmm, haven't done a Monsooned Yirg' cup in quite a spell, that be
quite the interesting cup!

And who was it that gave me such a hard time for blending with a Kona,
just recently?

evening. Indeed twas you that led down this path of perdition!-)

It does make for an interesting cup, doesn't it?  Can't say it will
become a staple, but for a quality shot that is a little different
once in a while - it works;~)

I had a Maragogype - Bugisu Americano yesterday.  Rustic beginning
with a smooth chocolate finish!  Not your normal blend.  I was going
to shill on the Maragogype, but Tom is sold out again.  So I guess I
don't need to push another great coffee with an interesting pedigree!
So many good coffees in the Stash!  Becky was awed by the Yellow
Bourbon from Brazil yesterday.  I only have one pound left in the
stash.  Tom forgot about that one this year, bummer.

I've got enough left for a 1/2# net roast.  I've been saving it for
something special.......I think my lack of patience is going to become
'special' enough in the near future.  I think that the Yellow Bourbon
is going to become one of those mythical, "do you remember.....",
things.  I certainly try every Bourbon bean that shows up on toms
list---all good, but not quite the same-----yet (hope).

Mine's gone as of a month ago.  I keep waiting and trying them all,
but no go.  I just finished my last pound of the Honduras Fabio
Cabellero.  Other favorites I long for...Costa Rica "Select" PB and
India Pearl Mtn PB.  And I only have one pound left of the Tanzania
PB.  I really don't care if it's a PB, but those have been special.
