Topic: Harar horse green stripe (9 msgs / 166 lines)
1) From: Leo Zick
I roasted some harar horse for the 1st time yest. Got it to use as a blend,
but seeing that MiKe McKoFfEE was right, I tried it on its on.  Roasted it
to an 10min city+ roast.  Pulled a single ristretto, around 1/3oz, tonight.
Wow. This thing is PACKED with flavors!  Its got all sorts of fruitiness,
wine-like qualities, really interesting! Not really anything chocolately
imo, but im sure that mixing this with something that has more chocolate
will be amazing.  Im curious to see how it will change flavor over the next
few days..
Anyone else experience this stuff? :)

So I was "right" posting a direct quote of what Tom Owens has posted on his
Sweet Maria's site concerning SO's and blending. Good.

first not know. And in knowing know I know not. Each Personal enlightenment

You didn't cite the quote, you plagerer, so you were only half right!
Thx again..

Guess again, no plagiarism involved. Check the archives, my post did in fact
state it was a direct quote from Tom and was in fact within quotation marks.

5) From: Leo Zick
Youre correct, I was thinking of another post.
Thx again :)
No comments on the bean?

The chocolate will arrive in about 4-5 days.  It is an amazing coffee!
 I sure am glad I got a 10 pounder.

I have two other Horses in stash and didn't get any of the green stripe. But
it sounds like you discovered some of it's character others had previously
talked about. Just another Sweet Maria's winner!

Send me your address again.  There will be some horse riding north!
If you don't send your address, I will look it up anyway.

I have never had a coffee quite like this one.  I have made several 
Americanos with it and each sip from the same cup tastes different and each 
one is better than the last one.  It tastes of all sorts of fruit, not just 
blueberries like the lot 30.  I like lot 30 very much, but this one is 
something special, an indescribable explosion of flavors.
I have also tried it in the TV and it is good, but not nearly as dynamic as 
when used in the espresso machine.
