Topic: Blueberry and Lemon: Ethiopia Organic Idido Misty Valley DP (5 msgs / 89 lines)
1) From: Eddie Dove
My compatriots and I distinctly tasted lemon in the Ethiopia Organic Idido
Misty Vally DP.  Everyone else on the list is talking about tasting
blueberry in the same aforementioned coffee.  I assume (flinch) that both
flavors can be had out of the same coffee given different roasting
mechanisms, techniques, profiles and cooling.  Is this assumption correct
and does it have to do with the manner and rate at which the sugars are
caramelized, etc?
By the way, I liked this coffee so much that it is the first of which I have
bought 10 pounds.  Two Harvey orders last night ... stash augmentation in
progress.
Respectfully,
Eddie

Eddie,
I am getting hints of blueberry.  I get way more lemon.  The blueberry
kicks in as it cools.  It isn't like the lot 30 harar.  Fruit notes is
a better way of saying what I am getting.  This is a nice complex cup.

Eddie,
     At city roast the predominant and definining taste and aroma I got was
that of blueberries. It seems as though it does taste and smell different at
different roasts. So I would recommend trying a city roast, and see what you
get. As for me, I will be trying a city+ roast next time in an attempt to
catch the lemon flavors.
