Topic: Stash Augmentation - Harvey the Helper (17 msgs / 249 lines)
1) From: Eddie Dove
Harvey just dropped by and left 24 pounds of coffee; what a nice guy!  Got a
10 pounder of Ethiopia Organic Idido Misty Valley DP; bag looks too small
... may have to order more.  The other 7 coffees are ones that I have yet to
try.  It's like being a kid in a candy store trying to decide which ones to
try first!  May just have to start with the Lekempti and something else for
my wife.

Eddie,
How did you get Harvey to deliver 24 pounds?  I thought that 12 lbs was the
limit.

I'd guess two separate orders for 12 lbs to the same address?  That was
clever, I'll have to remember that.

  It looks small because if you got 7 other pounds of coffee in a Harvey =
box, you must have only bought a 5 pounder.  :>)

5) From: Eddie Dove
Harvey made two trips and yes, he was out of breath.  It's more convenient
for me to get them all at once. (Two Harvey orders = 24 pounds).  The 7
other coffees are all 2 pounds each.
I love the Ethiopia Organic Idido Misty Valley DP so much, that I believe a
20 pound bag would look small too.

Eddie,
I pulled shots this morning 25% Idido Misty Valley and 75% Brazil Yellow
Bourbon!  90% Crema, and the taste!  blueberry followed by chocolate malted
with the sweetest caramel lingering aftertaste.  Becky said it was one of
the best cappos ever.  Just before lunch she had an iced glass of Idido
Misty Valley.  When I told her I only had a pound left, she said, "Maybe you
ought to order more for your birthday."  Now with a green light like that,
who can resist!

Les,
 
I have Idido Misty Valley and Brazil Yellow Bourbon on its way to me.   Your 
blend sounds quite tasty.  What roast level did you take them  to?
 
Thank you,
Kim

11) From: Les
AHHHHHHHHHH!   It is back to coffee and off the food fight!  I roasted the
Idido to a city plus and the Brazil Yellow Bourbon to a full city because I
knew I was going to be pulling shots.  Idido was rested 6 days and the
Yellow Bourbon 3.  I found the citrus in the Idido to fade after day 4.  I
am not sure what a day 3 shot would have been like.

   Please tell us how you roasted the Brazil Yellow Bourbon and Idido  
Misty Valley before pulling shots with them!  Did you pre-blend or  
roast them separately? I've got my 1 pound of Misty Valley just  
begging to be roasted but I don't want to ruin it.

I roasted them separate and post-roast blended at 25% Idido Misty Valley and
75% Yellow Bourbon.  I roasted the Idido a few snaps into second crack on my
RK drum.  That is a city plus as I coast into a few snaps of second.  I
roasted the Yellow Bourbon to full city  which is coasting 15 seconds into
second crack.  I doubt you can ruin the Misty Valley.  It is a very nice
hard bean.  On my next roast I am going to do a city roast to bring out more
of the fruit flavors.  I won't even get close to second crack.  The real
question is what are you looking for?  I was looking for some of the
fruitiness, but wanted to see if there was some chocolate notes too.
Chocolate notes come with a slightly darker roast.  I don't go to a Vienna
very often.  I showed Alchemist John my Ididio Misty roast and told him I
did a dark roast.  He laughed and said, "yeah for a homeroaster that is
dark."  The exciting part is I found what I was looking for.  I am amazed
that this is such a clean well prepared Dry Processed coffee.  I just love
the crisp clean fruit cup followed by a nice complexness with a chocolate
finish.  It doesn't get much better.

Les,
I'm currently pulling shots from a 60% / 40% blend of the Yellow
Bourbon / Idido Misty Valley.  YB to full city minus and the IMV to
city plus (EOR 440 F / 434F).  Both approx 12.5 minute roasts.  Both
rested 3 days.  Absolutely fantastic, the first blend that I haven't
added at least 10% Monsooned Malabar to in a long time - I think it
would have covered the fruitiness.  I think I'll stop the IMV roast a
couple of degrees earlier next time (never too much of a good thing).
Mike (just plain)

15) From: Les
Sounds like we are on the same wave length Mike.  I plan on going a little
lighter on the IMV next time too and bumping the blend up to about 40%.
Tomorrow I am going to be adventurous and pull some straight ristrettos fro=
m
the last of the present roast.
