Dennis,
Full City to Full City +.  10% to 15% blended with something you like.
 Adds character and puts hair on your chest.  I was going to make some
disparaging remark about 'target' sailors.....but I'll wait till you
get home;~)

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).

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!"

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.

I drink the Elephant as an SO and I like it. 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,
<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.

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.
