Topic: Ethiopia FTO Dry-Proceess Lekempti (14 msgs / 403 lines)
1) From: miKe mcKoffee
Looking forward to trying this stuff more than any coffee in a long time.
Tom's write-up got me hook line and sinker! Bold overly fruity "defective"
but delicious part of what he says. In fact I'd just transmitted an order
before seeing it and had to email them to add a couple pounds to the order.
Funny how a 17# order seems sooooo small compared to the way I used to
order. (Another fiver of Brazil YB and 6 dueces including the Lekempti) But
that'll push the stash back to around 110# and I will NOT let my stash get
carried away again soaring over 250# and end up with some primo beans dying
of old age. Not again, I've learned my lesson.
Though I've been looking at freezers for dedicated greens storage...:-)

Now who is the shill, Mr McKoffee!!!!!!!
I know what you mean Mike, Tom has it in high gear!  So, are you going have
the Bric pull some ristrettos of the Lekempti?  I need to put together an
order of Brazil YB cause my girls are clamoring for it.  The Columbia sounds
like a winner for girls as well and the price can't be beat.  I will of
course have to get some Lekempti as well as one or two others to round out
the order.   Now to help Eddie out, order when the wife is out of town and
send the bill to your mother-in-law for stealing your wife.

Shill? Mwaa? Not at all. I passed on many coffees at one time I would not
have. Note my stash caution admonition included in the post. I was serious
about that. But that Lekempti write-up was both so differently "defective"
and enticing couldn't help myself:-) I mean who wants humdrum boring coffee!

Don't tell my wife. Mine is in an old straw picnic hamper in the back of =
the pantry closet. It has about 80 pounds in it now. If she ever decides =
on a picnic I am in trouble.

11) From: scott miller
When I moved into my new house last month, my girlfriend was
"disgusted" to see that my coffee, around 60 pounds of it, was just
about overflowing from a plastic crate that measured 21x15x12 (LxWxH).
What she didn't realize was the actual size of the stash, until we got
to the house and she caught me sneeking the SECOND crate of similar
dimensions into the house.
I see on wikipedia there is a page on the colloquial usage of the word
apoplectic:
Non-medical useage:
Colloquially, particularly in the adjective form apoplectic, apoplexy
means furious, enraged, or upset to the point of being unable to deal
with a situation rationally or diplomatically.
Well, I see now more fully how my life has truly been enriched by
roasting my coffee: not only do I have a better understanding of this
non-medical useage of that 10-cent word, I'm under strict orders to
roast more coffee. Everyone I encounter these days who even remotely
resembles a friend or acquaintence is the recipient of some beans.
The recent big changes in my life?
1) People now actually think I'm a nice guy
2) My roasting skills are improving at an accelerated rate
3) I should be "safe" to buy coffee again in another month or so
So Barry, don't worry if the stash gets uncovered. The unintended
benefits could really surprise you. Why, my girlfriend was now come to
the realization that she's never met an Ethiopian she doesn't like!
cheers,
ScoTTT

Wow what a great cup of coffee.  I have been enjoying this one for the last
two days.  Yesterday I had it in the Technovirm.  However I roasted this
batch to a Vienna.  I have had one batch at cinnamon, talk about tooty
fruity!  The middle two batches I roasted to a nice city.  This time I
wanted to see if I could bring out some of the complexity along with the
fruit.  I am drinking one of the most complex cups of coffee I have had as I
type this report.  I pulled a double ristretto and now I am enjoying an
Americano.  It has all of that wonderful Yirg type flavor with some Harar
Horse complexity and still has nice hints of fruit that the Lekempti was
known for.  The Vienna roast really toned down the high notes and tamed the
leathery flavors.  I am getting some very nice peach-apricot with currant
and blueberry followed by a very mellow semi-sweet chocolate aftertaste.  I
wonder if Tom is going to get some more of these funky types of coffee this
year.  Playing at the edges of roasting can be very rewarding.  I fired up
the Expobar for the first time in about a year.  I forgot how much I like
that machine too.  Trying out a new model of tamper was fun too.  I guess I
had better stop at two espressos this late in the day.  Sad to say, this is
the last of the Lekempti, I still have a good stash of Misty Valley
however!

Hey Les,
I really enjoyed that Lekempti as well, but I used up the last of it in
April.  It never occured to me to try a much darker roast ...
I hope Tom can get more of these too ... I have just under 1 pound of the
Misty Valley left ...
Thanks for sharing.
Eddie

I liked the Lekempti *much* more than the Misty Valley. - Steve D
