Topic: Roast Level blending (8 msgs / 209 lines)
1) From: Vicki Smith
It's called a melange, I believe. That's as close to blending as I get 
at this point, Dennis. One of my New Year's resolutions is to get a bit 
braver and "really" blend.
My husband is not a fan of fruity flavours in coffee, but he does like 
some of the melange based cups.

All the time. I just did two roasts of Colombian Huila (one at C+ the other=
 at -FC) that I combined. While the bean is best at C+, when I blend the tw=

Dennis,
I do this all the time, especially with the Brazils.  I love the flavors in
the lighter roasts and the chocolate of the darker roasts so I do both and
combine them.

Dennis,
    Yes, often do it.  One of the nice things about wok roasting is  
that you can pull parts of the roast at different stages.  I call it  
a bracketed roast.  There is a French word for it but I can never  
remember it.  I'm sure someone else will chime in with it.

That's the French girly-man term. I can't get myself to say it
out loud so I use the term roast blend.
