Topic: Nicaragua CoE #3 El Cipres (7 msgs / 254 lines)
1) From: Les
Wow what a nice change of pace.  I have been drinking a lot of the Yirg
fruity coffees of late.  Tom uses the word "hefty" in his description of
this one.  It has a nice long lingering after taste!  I could taste the
grape - butterscotch - raspberry as I worked through the cup as it cooled,
with a very pleasant and clean aftertaste.  A very nice complex cup of
coffee with good body.  Too bad about the one pound limit, I would buy more
if I could.  This leads me to wondering if we might ask Tom to lift a one
pound limit on the CoE coffees after say 4 months.  I understand his desire
to spread the good stuff around, but I sure hate seeing it linger in the
warehouse!  The Guatemala Injerto CoE is one of the best coffees I have ever
had.  If others don't want to jump on this awesome offering, I sure would
enjoy another pound.  I could manipulate the system and have Alchemist
John put it on his next order and pay him, but that just doesn't seem above
board either.  From a business point view point, Tom would be better off
putting no limit on the CoE offerings, but he cares about spreading the
awesome experience of these coffees and I appreciate it.  However, with so
many CoE offerings, I hate to see them linger in the warehouse.  What do you
all think?

of the idea, makes sense to let some of the beans last longer for others to
grab.
about the taste?  i started a thread on it couple weeks ago. i found it
flat.
how did you roast and brew it?

I would tend to believe the pound limit would be per order.
However, if you were a marauding Viking menace...

No it isn't a pound per order.  We had a good food fight about that a few
years ago.  It is suppose to be a pound per person.  I guess with 4 coffee
drinkers in the house, I could have Becky, Luke, and John order a pound, but
again that to me violates the spirit of what Tom is doing.  Now to
roasting.  This is not a flat coffee in my experience.  It is a very lively
cup, dancing around on the palate.  I roasted it in my RK drum to my normal
city plus in 15 minutes.  However, I didn't touch it for 4 days.  I always
rest Cattura for 4 days.  I find it best between 4 and 12 days.

Here's what it says on the order page:
"Compare to: This is a great, complex and unique Pacamara coffee. The
CoE jury (I was one) rated this 93.5  I was a bit tougher here, and I
take into account the varitey of roast levels I perform on the coffee.
Small Lot! Limit 1 lb per order "
