Topic: decaf blending (4 msgs / 61 lines)
1) From: Sheila Quinn
How would I blend a DECAF similar to the Moka Kadir? I would like to be 
able to use it both as an espresso and drip.
... Or maybe a HALF-CAF Moka Kadir or Moka Java type blend would work, too.
I'm just getting way too hopped up on caffeine with the new espresso 
machine and want to experiment with some decafs, as long as they taste 
good. It's such a fun new toy that I just can't stop! :)
Thanks,
Sheila

A decaf Moka Kadir looks tough with the choices available right now, since
the Ethiopian Sidamo is the only decaf available that matches a listed
ingredient in Moka Kadir.  Mixing the Sidamo with the Sumatra decaf would be
a good starting point for a Moka Java type blend.  I really like the Komodo
Blend decaf, maybe with a little Sidamo added.  Another starting point might
be Toms Decaf Espresso Blend, which he suggests as a base which can be
"spiced up" with a flavorful caffeine-bearing addition.
Have fun,
Bill

I'm still a newbie and unsure about blending. I was looking at the 
Komodo Blend, though, and wondering.... which regular caffeinated coffee 
would make a good addition to it? That way, I could drink shot after 
shot and not worry about bouncing off the walls! :)
Thanks,
Sheila

I like to mix Komodo with Moka Kadir.  I can't specifically comment on
espresso blends, since I'm using mostly pourover drip or Aeropress.  These
days I'm drinking 3:1 or 4:1 decaf:caf ratios.
Tom's considerable wisdom is athttp://www.sweetmarias.com/blending.html.
Check it out.
Have fun,
