1) From: Scjgb3
Well its Sunday morning once again and my ritual has begun, Tuesday the  14th 
of last week I roasted the El Zapote to a nice C+   roast. (using the HG/DB 
method) then this morning I put the Cory  vacuum pot on the stove,  ground the 
beans, brewed and like the younger  people say OMG  this is by far  one of the 
better cup of  excellent I have had. The chocolate is there, like milk 
chocolate, smooth  and then at the end of the mouth feel the blackberry is there 
ever so  light!  yummmmmmm!!!!!!!
I hope everybody's day starts out this good. The only way it could have  been 
better is if my rocky would have arrived Saturday. But that's ok it WILL be  
here tomorrow.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS

I always like to hear about a great cup of coffee!  I am enjoying a TV pot
of *Ethiopia FTO Dry-Proceess Lekempti.  *I don't understand why Tom thought
it was so wild!  I am finding it to be an very smooth complex cup of Dry
Processed coffee.  I would call it a rustic cup.  I don't find it out of
balance, hints of fruit, spice, and chocolate.  For those who have been
scared of this coffee, you really ought to give it a try.  I took it to a
nice full city.  I think I will try some shots  after a couple of days more
rest.  If you like the African coffees, I would put this in the must try
column.  Thanks Tom for bucking the common cupping.  This is a wonderful
unique coffee.

I am ready to have my upteenth cup of a mixture of part Guatemala San 
Marcos Finca Maria Elisa and part Mexico Chiapas Decaf. Have a lot of 
studying to accomplish today, but decided to spread the caffeine (much =
needed) out a bit so I am not completely wired. The delicious aroma is =
driving me crazy.
I thought I ruined some of my recent roastings (stove-top bean roasting =
really is an art), but my batches were miraculously saved by putting 
them back on the stove for a couple of minutes. Took the acidity right =
out (even if it is a bit darker than I'd prefer - still smooth and 
unbelievably delicious.
Didn't have a chance to thank everyone for bringing up the possibility =
of re-roasting. Saved a few batches for me!

I'm so jealous ... can't wait to have a decent cup of coffee again!  I will
have to second you on the Ethiopia FTO Dry-Process Lekempti Les.  I did not
find that cup to be over the top, but as you wrote, more rustic.  If you
haven't tried this coffee you really should.  Don't let the description
scare you away ... it is a fine cup.
