Topic: Rwanda Migongo Bourbon (6 msgs / 106 lines)
1) From: Jeremy DeFranco
     Just want to say this coffee is excellent. I'm drinking a cup now, and
as it cools it becomes more chocolatey and the body becomes more oily. Its
got a nice sweetness to it. I really love these Bourbons! I'll have to say I
almost passed up the Brazil Yellow Bourbon, but all the rave about it on the
list pushed me to try it out. I'm glad I did. Now, I try this Rwanda, and it
is amazing too. I think the Bourbons are definitely my favorites, although
I'm waiting to try the Bugisu when it comes in (couple months when I asked
last week). I like these chocolately coffees. Can't wait to pull shots with
them when my espresso machine arrives. I'll also have to try City+ roasts,
too, for another take on them with the Chemex (been taking the YB and
Migongo to FC+).

Folks ... in case you missed this, I have to echo Jeremy's sentiments ... I
am drinking it with only two days worth of rest (the beans, not me) and it
is already an excellent coffee!  Smooth, rich, chocolatey and silky.I am
glad I saved some green to roast later so that I can try pulling some shots
with this after Christmas.

I used this one in my espresso machine and it was incredible! I was even 
able to drink it straight, which is unusual for me. :)
I haven't tried it as "regular" coffee yet, but I'm sure it's delicious.

I roasted up a batch of this stuff this last weekend to the very 
first snaps of second crack, my usual practice with first roasts.  I 
tried it on my home machine (Linea) and my office machine (S1).  It's 
as described in the cupping report on Tom's website.  Actually it's 
so smooth and well-behaved that my first impression is that it needs 
some distinguishing feature.  Maybe that's because I'm used to 
chocolate berry bombs from the Harrar I've almost used up.
