Harvey stopped by and brought me my latest coffee order...I ordered some Monkey Blend and promptly roasted to a FC+++ or Vienna- (don't ya hate it when you pull the roast early) and when I ground it I swear I smelled Lot 30 Blueberries in there along with the same chocolate raspberries that I smelled over at Java Jerry's. In the cup (Aeropress double strength) I found the bittersweet chocolate (no licorice) I can't wait to try this again in about 36 hours to 48 hours.... Tom, MONKEY BLEND ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!! What is everybody else finding the the monkey blend? Dennis
I too thoroughly enjoy the Monkey Blend. Last time I roasted it I had the same thought- some of those Lot 30 blueberries were mixed in! To make the blueberry come out more, I even tried mixing 1/3 monkey roasted to city+ with 2/3 monkey roasted to FC+. Hard to tell a major difference. I think the roast taste you get by roasting all of it to FC+ or more keeps it nice and complex, without losing that blueberry. I think the thing to do would be to mix in some City+ Harrar lot 30 if you got any left. However, that goes without saying that Monkey is amazing as is. Happy sippin!
monkey is great its even better than Stumptowns Hairbender
