Topic: Quick Query: Which Coffee? (8 msgs / 195 lines)
1) From: Jason Brooks
Greetings,
    I'm heading up some coffee production for a church breakfast next
Saturday.  So, I headed over to SMs to order some beans, thinking of
Colombia.  The Colombia I have now, Colombian Nariņo -Reserva Del
Patron, is a wonderful, even smooth coffee - something plebes would
like.  So, the current Colombia sounds a bit too bright, I would
think.  Any other suggestions for a nice, smooth bean for non-HR
folks?  And something that won't break the bank would be good as well.

Java Jerry Told me and I agree one of the best Coffees that pretty much =
every one will like is the Uganda Buguisu. If you are a coffee drinker =
then the bug is for you!

Jason, ...>>>a nice light cup for the plebes...>>>http://www.sweetmarias.com/coffee.central.panama.htmlPanamanian Los Lajones.  From Tom's notes:
"You can't get much pleasure brewing up an Organic certificate, but this 
coffee is a delight! The lighter roasts have a very sweet cup, most 
notably marked by a ripe orange character. This coffee is not as acidic 
as the Lerida Peaberry, nor as bright as the Carmen Estate 1800+ meters..."
I have found that time after time, more people remark about how nice the 
cup is with a Panamanian than any other coffee that I gift others with.

Bugisu suggested?  Whoa.....
While a great coffee, it is a chocolate dessert coffee, not an AM 
breakfast blend.  Bugisu is one heavy, bold coffee for non HR types.  
Just my humble opinion.

Jason, the two coffees I've gotten the most compliments on are the Ethiopian
Yirgacheffe and the Sumatran Iskandar.  However, if I were heading up that
coffee production, I might choose the Nicaragua Prodecoop Dipilto.  It is
fairly cheap and very good.

I recently blended the Colombia Narino del Patron with a bit of Panama 1800=
+
and an even smaller bit of Kenya Mchana. The result was a crowd-pleaser. Th=
e
latter two are no longer available, but since many people tend to prefer
blends, you might try this route. I think the Narino makes a really nice
base for a blend. It's versatile and lends body and depth of flavor nicely
without the need for a Sumatra or similar component (not that those wouldn'=
t
be good too...) I would try to find two coffees in addition to the Patron:
one with textural zip and one with bright and/or fruity flavor (maybe a
Brazil and a Kenya?). I'd do 60% Colombia and 20% of each of the other two.
Really though, the Colombia Narino del Patron stands nicely on its own if
you want to keep it simple.
Have fun,

UGH! is cheap and better than Folgers.....  OK so that's too far down the
food chain.
I've always liked a four-way blend, such as:
  Brazil Fazenda
  Uganda Bugisu
  Colombia Supremo
  Java Djampit
You'll get a balanced smooth cup, and they'll love it.

Thanks for the suggestions.  I ended up going for 2# each of Nicaragua
Prodecoop Dipitlo, Uganda Bugisu, and Mexico Org Finca El Olivo.  I'll
probably roast up about 1# of 2 of the three, and take them, my Chemex, a
couple of Zasses and a Thermal Carafe.
Thanks again,
Jason
