Topic: Sumatra Lake Tawar (4 msgs / 56 lines)
1) From: Edward Bourgeois
Have tried this coffee before and am wondering what sort of blends others
have  tried. It's so unique as a SO but not something I like everyday. So a
before grind blend option would be nice.

I like it with nearly any dry process African or Yemen.

I'm with Jeff. A heady DP -- something fruity from Ethiopia, maybe. That's
what's made that bean do a "wow" for me.

Another solution to blending an SO you don't like too often by itself is
always have multiple SOs roasted and rest ready. That's been my modus
operandi for years since before beginning home roasting. I very seldom drink
the same cup back to back let alone day to day! For instance today's first
cup of the morning was a lungo pulled Kowali's Kona americano, followed by a
normale pulled Sumatra Volkopi cappuccino, then later a ristretto of my
Winter Solstice Blend.
 
If you're concerned with roasted coffees not being consumed fast enough
sitting and going stale vacuum sealed and frozen roasts very good for months
IMO. Though even with 3 to 5 different coffees always roasted and rest ready
(1/2# greens batches) seldom last more than 8 or 9 days so seldom need to
freeze them.

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.
