1) From: Leo Zick
I just got a lb of this coffee, and cant find the link to it on the SM site
any more. There is even a link to the brazil page on the green coffee page,
but it doesn't have it listed any more.  What am I supposed to do with it?
Lol.  I got it for espresso blend, but wanted to read the notes/roasting
hints. :(

Well what to do with it is roast it, rest it, grind it, brew it, drink it!
When a coffee is no longer available it's write-up is moved to the archives.

Ya, I thought roasting would be a good idea. After that is where it got
confusing. :p
The problem is that roasting times for brewed coffees and roasting times for
espresso blends seem to be around the same.  In my popper, I take my
espresso roasts to 12mins (ive heard this is the max for them, otherwise
they get baked).  Reading roasting notes makes it seem that brewed coffees
should be city+ to FC, ending around 11mins.  Guess ive got some
experimenting to do.  Don't think ill be able to stretch it past 10.

Leo,
I see another poster responded with the link to the Brazilian archives.  The
coffee sold out yesterday; hence the move to archive (I know 'cuz I got one
of the last 5#s ordered Sunday -- I now have a 'get out of jail card' 
with my
wife since I have that 5#'s rounding out my stash).
I don't use an espresso machine but rather a Bialetti stove top.  The 
roast is
wonderfully sweet and chocolate-y at a full city in it.  It is a nice 
base to play with
in blends.  I like it Yellow Bourbon/Sumatran/Rwanda, 50/25/25.
Tom indicates C+ all the way up to a recommended FC+ for an espresso.
You are going to enjoy it,
DB

It is now in the archives:http://www.sweetmarias.com/coffee.reviewarchive.a-f.htmlA very good brewed coffee at FC, I might add.  Let us know how it works out
as an espresso component,
