Topic: Yirgacheffe-Oromia!! (10 msgs / 201 lines)
1) From: Jeremy DeFranco
I've been up 12 hours straight, studdying. I just brewed up a chemex pot of
Yirgacheffe Oromia roasted to a perfect City+. Whammo!!!! is this delicious!
I tasted a sweet complex citric zest at the opening, and then I got a
Marzipam-like nuttyness that stays in the mouth. Real nice. Real nice. I
just took a look at Tom's cupping review, and he describes a lemon custard
taste with hazelnut. Guess I'm not too far off. Damn fine coffee my friends,
damn fine coffee... Thanks Tom!

Please correct me if I am wrong, I thought that the marzipam taste
means that it is slightly underroasted.  You should have pulled the
roast when you smelledl the almond-like nuttyness.

I like it too.  After working through my first 20lb'er, it was time to =
order more.  Brown is dropping off a box w/ 60lbs. of the Yirg today!
I thought the MAO Yirg that was in stock previously had a bit more lemon =
zing to it, the Oromia is a fine bean.  What is so cool about it is that =
it has a wide sweet-spot.  You can stop as light as you want, or go FC.  =
Also, this is a bean that holds up well as the cup goes from hot all the =
way to cool.
Get it while you can!

Wow,
A 60 pounder!  That is half a bag!  Peter is that all you drink?  I
like having more variety in the stash.  I like the new 10 pound
offering for those that I really really really like.

Actually, I have 'ruined' several friends, neighbors, and church members who
like you Les, no longer drink coffee either.   ;-)     They're the Yirg
nuts.  Along with 25 other varieties....
I like your line Les, "I don't drink coffee."   At restaurants and such,
when people see I'm not drinking the coffee, I tell them they're not
drinking coffee either.
We have way too mcuh fun with all this homeroasting stuff don't we?  I can't
think of a better hobby.

Gotta remember it.

Sounds like you drink Yirg like I drink Bugisu.  This sure is a fun
hobby.  It doesn't take all day like others either, but can be enjoyed
at any time.
