Can you use the Elephant for a press pot or vacuum brew coffee (non espresso) and drink it straight up? I have a pound as well but have no espresso maker yet (though I do like espresso doubles). On 11/4/06, True, Dennis W. FC1 (CVN69) wrote: <Snip> -- Kevin

Kevin, I recently tried my first cup of straight Malabar at a local roaster's shop. To be fair to Monsooned Malabar, I do not typically enjoy this shop's coffee, but I was curious enough to order some of this one. The guy serving me the drink said he liked the stuff and enthusiastically offered the following endorsement: "It tastes like hippies!" I drank about five sips and, agreeing with him, enthusiastically traded my cup in for another. It's a distinctive coffee for sure and I can see enjoying it in a blend. As always, your mouth may vary. I'd say "Go for it!" TO in VA On 11/4/06, Kevin wrote: <Snip>
Kevin, My mouth may vary, but I have roasted the Elephant before and drank it as a SO coffee. I did very much like it, but it can be a bit overpowering by itself. Eddie On 11/4/06, Kevin wrote: <Snip>

It has an unusual, earthy flavor. But, it's not for everyone. I think it makes a very good espresso without mixing it. It's all a matter of preference, so try it straight and see how you like it.

Come on Plain Mike, you were one of those guys that hid under the water all the time! According to my Dad (ex Jarhead) the Navy is the transportation wing of the Marine Corp. That said, I wonder what would have happened if you homeroasted underwater on a sub? (I had to get this back to coffee. That ristrettto is kicking in so I better quit trying to be funny,) Les On 11/4/06, Michael Dhabolt wrote: <Snip>
Thanks for the info and watch it! My last boat was the USS Nautilus (SSN-571) thank you very much!!!! I was stationed in Groton for over 4 years. Ok so I need to mix the Malbar, it isn't good as a SO? Dennis Dennis, Full City to Full City +. 10% to 15% blended with something you like. Adds character and puts hair on your chest.

Les, <Snip> I can just barely imagine the contrast between homeroasted and what we used to drink. And that leaves me with a lot of respect for the project that Dennis has taken on. That said: if I didn't try to 'twist em up a little', other members of the canoe club (jarheads included) wouldn't think I was being very friendly. If that YB / IMV restretto is kicking in like the machiattos I've been doing all morning.......about time for another. Mike (just plain)
I finished the day with a machiatto of the YB/IMV. Wow are those ever addictive. I am glad I only had grounds for one. Les On 11/4/06, Michael Dhabolt wrote: <Snip>
