Topic: CN: Old Crop Maui Moka (37 lines)
1) From: Andy Thomas
(I posted about this coffee a few days ago. To recap:
It is from a plantation in Kaanapali Maui that went
out of business a few years ago. It is from Yemeni
stock and was the cause of a lot of favorable comment.
SM carried it, but I bought mine from another source
after SM ran out. Mine was already past crop when I
bought it, but still pretty good.)
Roasted Sunday 7/23 in Poppery (1) to City+. Brewed
single cups in Melitta #2 on Tuesday, Wednesday and
Thursday. (My usual morning coffee drill.)
Cupping Notes:Aroma was earthy and slightly fruity,
but I couldn't pin it down. Flavor similar -- sort of
earthy, dry leaves, with a bit of spice -- maybe
clove. Pretty good acidity, not bright but not dead
either. 
I was surprised how good it still tasted. It was
probably richer when it was fresh -- or to put it
another way, it is milder now, less wild, but still
well worth drinking. BTW, no special storage, although
it had never been exposed to excessive heat, cold or
humidity.
