Topic: Yellow Bourbon (25 msgs / 400 lines)
1) From: Mark Tosiello
Hi all,
Long time no been here!   Anyway, back now, after moving and a life and 
love upheaval, and now I need to ask Tom and Maria (and all) a 
question.  Is there any of that Yellow Bourbon variety in the offing?  
Hasn't been listed as available in quite awhile, and I was wondering 
when (if ever) it might show up again.  Mighty fine coffee, I say, and 
my coworkers are crazy about it.
Nuff said, I just spent my inheritance ordering more beans anyway......
Thanks Tom and Maria for all you do, and to all of you on the list!!!!
Mark

Pantano*has some Yellow Bourbon varietal in it.

Tom,
Can we get on an automatic Payroll Deduction Plan.  There are just too
many awesome coffees coming!  Thanks for all your effort and hard
work!

lets see - we could have internships...
As far as Harar Green Stripe - i guess I am being circumspect. You 
know, I get really excited about great lots of coffee, but Harar is 
just a hit and miss proposition quite often, and yes, it is a good 
lot, and yes, the prep is better. I expected a lot because we paid 
the MAO Horse folks a good bit extra for the prep. I just feel that 
the range of cups I get from the Green Stripe is larger than I 
expected because good prep should limit the extremes and give a more 
consistent cup. Anyway, like I said I got fantastic cups from Green 
Stripe with fruit and chocolate, and I got more tobacco/cedar/herbal 
cups (actually, more Yemeni in a way). Both are good cups.

I am too afraid of automated payroll deduction.  Never know when
supply might fail...
SO - my 10lb order of Fazenda Cachoeira Organic Yellow Bourbon is on
it's way - thanks Harvey.  And to retain my CSA points, I added two lb
African Highlands WP Decaf for my wife (even better than CSA
points...)
OK All, get yer order in...

Brett,
My last batch of last year's Yellow Bourbon is resting nicely in its
container waiting for tomorrow's brew!  My problem is the old stash is
bulging and I just order a 10 pounder of the Green Striped Horse!  By
the way, the African Highland Decaf is simply the best decaf I have
ever had!  Your wife will love it.  I am hoping Tom has a good supply
of the Yellow Bourbon, I am hoping to wait about a month to get the
stash down a bit.

I just brewed up some Yellow Bourbon (Full City in an iRoast1) in a Press
Pot.  This is hands down the best coffee I've ever had.  I can't even
describe why it tastes so good to me, it's full bodied, dark chocolate taste
and smooth but there is something else in the cup I can't quite put my
finger on.  Each sip just keeps me wanting more.  I picked this up based off
of a post Les made raving about the coffee.   Wow!  This is the payoff for
roasting your own.  I wonder how this will taste when roasted slower in a
Gene Cafe...

I read Tom's review while drinking this great bean. I have trouble
with defining wood (the good ones) tastes so I think that's part of
what we're tasting that may be hard to put our finger on. I took mine
to FC. I want to try my best to get a City+ next time and see if I
can pick up the tangerine.

I had tried several of the yellow burbon's over the past year or so and 
they all have been terriffic.  Then again, I must admit, I think there 
was only one or two coffee's that I really did not like overall so. 
well, take it for what it's worth :)

I am about to find out ... I am going to be roasting some this evening.  I
bought it primarily for my wife, but I am sure I will enjoy it as well.  I
will be roasting the Lekempti for myself.

How long after roasting will you let the yellow bourbon sit? (Now, let's not
get slap-happy with your responses). I just roasted some up and am raring to
go.

I found it good after 24, but much better after 48.

And even better after 72 and even better than that after 96!:-) Importance
of rest for full flavor development is not to be over looked IMO. Best thing
you can do is find out for yourself trying coffees every 24 hours for at
least 7 days. 
Drinking while typing not YB but Americano of WP (not DP) Yirg' (MAO) now at
5 days rest and really extreme complex flavor explosion. Far better than at
2 or 3 or even 4 days rest.

19) From: Larry Dorman
People ask me what my favorite origin is and I typically respond that
I like them all... however, the reality is that the yellow bourbon is
one of two that have ever really stood out above all of the excellent
coffees I've gotten from SM.
I saw this thread and ordered 10 pounds of it this time... I was
disappointed last time because I had gotten two pounds, having never
tried it before, and when I discovered how much I like it it was
already too late to reorder.
I can only hope that this batch is anywhere close to as good as I
remember from a year ago...

Saw this post from Tom on his blog, posted yesterday:
"We have 2 new lots coming in from Brazil, and both are pure Bourbon
varietal coffees: *Brazil Fazenda Boa Sorte Natural
Bourbon*and
*Brazil
Cachoeira
da Grama Yellow
Bourbon
* ."

21) From: Brian Kamnetz
Question: Is this the same as the other yellow bourbon?
Thanks,
Brian

Brian,
     If you are wandering the difference between the new lot and the
previous one, I would recommend posting the question as a reply to the SM
blog. Cheers!

Haven't tried this batch, but I'm finishing up with another. Came out so, so
delicious - 1st day - really bright, but still good, 2nd day, still bright -
but today, 4th day - oh, it's heaven. It has a sweetness that leaves me
wanting more.
