Agree, I sang the praises of Lekempti weeks ago! Personally found it while
not really what I'd call out of balance but it did have more than a "hint"
of fruit(s), more like a dried & fermented fruit potpourri.

Ultimately the quest for Koffee Nirvana is a solitary path. To know I must
first not know. And in knowing know I know not. Each Personal enlightenment
found exploring the many divergent foot steps of Those who have gone before.

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.

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 know Mike!  However do you only want to sing solo?  I finally got around
to getting to this one roasted.  With so many great coffees it is hard to
get to the new ones.  Did you pull any shots of it Mike?

Personally, I prefer the input of many; provides for a lot of insight from
differing yet equally important perspectives.  Besides, I'm not sure miKe is
ready for solos yet!  ;-)

Eddie,
I respectfully disagree.  If Mike sings the praise of any coffee it
will be ordered by me right away.  Mike is one of the very best
homeroasters I know and he also has the experience to know what really
good coffee is.  If Mike says it it good, you will not be
disappointed!

Les,
We are in agreement ... I wasn't referencing his praises of coffee; I trust
miKe for that.  I'm just not sure about his falsetto yet. ;-)

I meant my post emphasis to be surprise at your mild descriptor of "hints of
fruit".

I will join Les in this praise of Mike.  I do have one exception, I  
feel he rates the Konas a little high, but if I got to take a few  
trips to Hawaii I probably would do the same.

Lochapoka Metro Complex if you don't know where La Place, which is no  
longer a place, is located.

I am enjoying Lekempti 6 days out today.  This has toned down into a very
nice balanced cup of coffee.  If I didn't know better I would say it was
more like a Central American coffee.  The ones that Tom describes as "good
coffee."  Nothing is really jumping out of the cup this morning except a
nice clean carmel finish.  It doesn't have a long lingering after taste
either.  Don't get me wrong, I think it is a very good cup of coffee.  My
other coffee (I almost always have two coffees rested and ready sometimes
three) is Uganda Bugisu. So, I know I didn't brew up a Central.    By the
way, my daughter and son-in-law who I am now supplying coffee to just love
the BUG!  Tom, I hope you can find some good BUG this year, I will be out in
about 2 months.

10) From: scott miller
I've been sampling both Lekempti and Misty Valley each day for 5 days now.
The fruit in the IMV has changed, but is still prominent; it's wonderful.
The Lekempti is one of the favorites du jour for me now. Luckily, I have
enough to last a while. After dinner drip blend for tomorrow is a 50-50
blend of Lekempti and Mexico Chiapas. We'll also have some Chiapas brewed in
a moka pot since that's my sister's favorite.
cheers,
Scott
