I roasted the 236g remainder of my sample pound of Nicaragua Matagalpa
Margogype '04! Master say- "C+".
My Afterburner popper- unmodded Presto Pop Lite- really makes the Hots, and
had the first few roasts ripping into Second almost before you could say
"Jackie Robinson." Then I got a Fresh Roast- my little Stradivarius- that I
learned to play for 10 minute roasts.
Suffice it to say that beans that I got over a year ago, that might have
been harvested as late as (Mar 04?) and so are perhaps off the vine for 30
months , were absolutely worth the wait. HG/Deep Bowl(DB) of my Love's
30+year-old Kitchen Aid made City of them in about 18 minutes.
NO Second at all- couldn'y even coax a snap with the heat gun close up. The=

Just Incredible!! I brewed into a 3L thermal airpot with the TV. Still have
2L, and it's almost hot even now
You read about the flavor of mellow caramel and aroma that floats up and
back in your mouth- like a little rain cloud in a mountain valley, that's
just what this pleasant coffee is doing.
Right now, I'm listening to one of my faves- The Planets by Holst. This is
interesting because I rarely get to hear it, much as I like to spin it when
I hit the sack. Even with nearly a L of this pleasant potion since dinner, =

don't make it past the sforzando midway in Mars. It's followed by strings
and a Bassoon. I'm gone in spite of recent coffee intake.
There's quite a crash at the end of Jupiter, but my wife says I don't even
stir.
One thing I don't do is the Liszt Ad Nos on the big Atlantic City Conventio=

Hall organ. The 100" Tubas are brassy and very loud, and the 64' Diaphone
Profunda causes things to rattle all over the house. CCCCC speaks at 8.11Hz=

If you have Very Large speakers, tear up the lease and prepare to move your
coffee setup someplace new!
Your roasting shed might be the only place remaining habitable while you're
having repairs done to your plaster and windows. No kidding- the blowers
total 600 hp. Caffeine doesn't do what that sound certainly would do.
Gee- the airpot is awful low, I've had almost 1.5L since 9pm. The body from
the Gold filter holds a neat extra flavor when you swirl it up in the cup.
This is super.
