Topic: Sweet, sweet Harvey. (6 msgs / 185 lines)
1) From: Silvia Marsh
He's got his work cut out for him, I think. I'm on the opposite coast.
This is my first time trying Harvey. It saved me a couple of bucks right off
the bat, and I hear he's swift as the wind, so this will be a treat.
I ordered:
2 pounds of Misty Valley, 2 pounds of SM Puro Scuro Blend, 1 pound of Indian
Monsooned Malabar "Elephant", 1 pound of Brazil Cachoeira da Grama -Yellow
Bourbon, and 1 pound of Rwanda Migongo Bourbon.
The Misty Valley I'm ordering because of the rave reviews on this list, the
Malabar because I liked Tom's review on the SM site, and the two Bourbons so
I could compare and contrast, maybe learn something about the differences
between continents on a relatively specific level.
And the Puro Scuro blend...well, I have to admit I picked this one because
a) I like dark roasts, b) I trust Tom's judgement, and c) Tom mentioned in
his review that this blend originally had a "Dark Shadows" theme, and I'm a
gigantic geek. :)
So, there's my picks...this should last me for a while, right?
Right?
Silvia

Hi Silvia!
How exciting for you!  I am just picking some out right now to try out 
Harvey for the first time, and to add to my stash. (I was starting to 
feel left out looking at others huge stashes!  :)
I am going to try the Misty Valley as well.  Any other suggestions?

I enjoyed the Peru Norte Especial I picked up in my last batch...I know it'd
be better after a rest, but I haven't been able to bring myself to leave it
sitting around all un-drunk.
I'm also a big fan of the Congo Kivu Peaberry, but that one (in my opinion)
you definitely have to let it rest. It was a bit...sharp (that's the best
way I have to describe it) the next day, but at four days it got _so_ much
richer.

Thanks Silvia!  I will give the Peru Norte Especial a shot.  And I 
agree with you on the Congo Kivu Peaberry.  Fantastic!  And my 
experience with resting it was very much like what you describe.
